Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an advanced alternative payment model for improving access to high-quality healthcare with a flat, affordable membership fee. DPCs allow patients astonishing access to a medical provider of their choice for as little as $65 per month. There is no co-pays, no fee-for-service payment and no third-party billing no matter how frequent you visit.
The important component of most DPCs is developing a long-term, trusting relationship between the patient and their DPC provider. In the DPC model, patients become members of their healthcare provider’s practice through a monthly subscription fee. DPC is a new way of controlling medical expenses and allowing better and more flexible care.
