DIRECT PRIMARY CARE-PHYSICIAN (DPC-Dr)
DIRECT PRIMARY CARE (DPC-Dr) is a national physician-led movement to eliminate the walls between the patient and their primary care physician. The DPC-Dr model seeks to place the physician and patient in a more rational and direct contract, eliminating unnecessary surprises. The DPC-Dr model only pertains to the primary care; Patients become engaged with physicians who have a vested interest to negotiate fair and manageable prices, often far less than their total annual deductible.
Physicians in a DPC-Dr model often opt-out of their contracts with most, if not all, their insurance carriers; By being out of their contracts, medical offices become free of regulations that hamper creativity and limit patient access to their doctors.
Furthermore, DPC-Dr physicians have the liberty to provide true value to their member patients by expanding services and transferring savings to their patients.
Membership gives patients access to a range of services within the practice. Membership is often inclusive of all services and procedures offered within a practice. Patients have access to discounted medications, can use secure messaging and video conferencing to communicate with their physician. Beyond a membership fee, patients have access to a negotiated and transparent fee schedule of auxiliary services such as CAT scans, X-rays and additional laboratories.
