Direct Primary Care (DPC)

Due to the ever-rising cost of health insurance premiums, finding alternatives to traditional health insurance, including participation in healthcare sharing programs, has dramatically increased. Typically, healthcare sharing programs operate outside of traditional health insurance, allowing them to operate at a cost that is substantially less than traditional health insurance. Savings compared to traditional plans, can be as much as 60% less.

Take a few minutes to check out the two options to provide coverage,
based on your need and your budget.

Why do I need a Direct Primary Care plan?

Although there are many reasons why someone uses a Direct Primary Care plan, the most common reasons are:  People are without any healthcare coverage, has an HSA plan or high-deductible healthplan (both of which the individual has to pay 100% of doctor office visits, drug, x-rays, etc.), prefer to have a dedicated relationship with same physician at an affordable rate, tired of paying high co-payments or full costs of doctor office visits.  Great for students and coverage is nationwide.

Direct Primary Care, is a new model for delivering primary healthcare, and its simplicity is its genius.  DPC members receive an all-access pass to a dedicated doctor through virtual office visits, phone calls, text messaging and even video calls – with a $0 copay and no deductible!  Physicians are accessible 24/7/365. 

You could see a doctor in person, but who wants the hassle.  It’s the 21st century, so we give you the tools to reach us from your home, your car, the office, the store, or even out on the beach during your relaxing vacation.  The goal of Direct Primary Care is to make it simple and affordable to get the help you need whenever and wherever you need it, day or night.

A concierge doctor can refer you to specialists as necessary, refill a prescription, or help you manage a chronic condition.  The care provided through a DPC plan allows for a more hands-on approach as compared to a standard telemedicine plan.  The DPC physician is able to prescribe pain medicine, and prescriptions for more chronic conditions which a telemedicine plan cannot.  A dedicated Care Navigator will help you through the other parts of the healthcare system, should the need arise – making sure you always get the right care, at the right time and place and fair price.  DPC isn’t a replacement for insurance or a medical cost sharing membership that covers catastrophic events.  It works with your health insurance plan or medical cost sharing membership to make it even better!  

Sounds simple enough, but can I really get quality care through a virtual consult?

Yes. Having an ongoing relationship with a primary care provider is the best way to keep you and your loved ones healthy and minimize your out-of-pocket costs. Leveraging technology, like chat, video and secure messaging to facilitate this relationship makes receiving care convenient and easy. Your dedicated care team will help you receive the right care, without the hassle of having to visit an office. In-fact about 80-90% of the medical needs of members can be addressed and resolved through a virtual visit. When the need does arise for in-office services, your care navigator will refer you to high-quality services in your area at a discounted rate.
