How is Direct Primary Care Different for the Patient?

How is DPC Unique? What makes it a different, and hopefully better, choice for the patient?

Lately there has been a lot of discussion about What Direct Primary Care is, but many are still asking: “So what’s in it for me, the patient?”

There are two major focuses of DPC – to set the standards for medical care nationwide, and to present a better and often more affordable option to traditional primary healthcare.

Why is Direct Primary Care unique and setting the standard for medical care nationwide?

  • Affordable monthly membership
  • Up to 80% savings over normal physician charges
  • Up to 60%reduction in ER visits and 65% fewer hospitalizations
  • Especially attractive when paired with more affordable high deductible plans
  • Quality care—personal attention, longer visits and shorter wait times
  • DPC is mentioned in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and when paired with high deductible insurance may fulfill the requirements of the ACA
