What is Direct Primary Care (DPC)?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) connects patients directly with a primary care physician, eliminating third party payers such as insurance and government programs. DPC allows physicians to provide optimal health care at affordable prices, and improves access to care.
DPC is not health insurance, and will not cover catastrophic expenses like hospitalizations or surgeries. Patients are advised to carry a high deductible health insurance plan for such emergencies.
However, pairing a DPC membership with a high deductible health care plan can save patients money on insurance premiums compared to traditional health insurance plans.
