Video: What is a Direct Primary Care Provider
Direct primary care cuts the insurance providers out of the process, erasing the need for patients and providers alike to file health insurance claims
Direct Primary Care (DPC) memberships are an innovative alternative payment model designed to improve access to high functioning healthcare with a simple, flat, affordable membership fee.
Direct primary care is a financial arrangement made directly between a patient and healthcare provider. Patients who use direct primary care don’t pay monthly health insurance premiums or copays. Instead, they pay their healthcare provider a monthly fee. But because direct primary care providers don’t bill insurance companies, they don’t accept any form of insurance. That being said, most patients who use direct primary care are also enrolled in a high deductible health plan (HDHP).
