What is DPC?

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an alternative payment & practice model for primary care services. DPC physicians offer services for a flat monthly rate instead of a traditional fee for service arrangement.

DPC physicians do not file insurance claims. They believe that patients, and/or their self-funded employers, will choose to pay the monthly rates because they provide a much higher level of patient care than a traditional primary care physician, and they’re right! DPC is growing quickly because of the value that these physicians provide.

You are a Customer, Not Just a Patient

  • Unrestricted access to your DPC, including availability outside of traditional office hours.
  • Access to your DPC through alternative means, such as mobile app, email, texting, and cell phone.
  • Faster scheduling, less time in the waiting room, more time with your provider.
  • Your DPC can help you find better, more cost effective options for medications, labs, imaging, and more!

What do the Experts Say?

Recently, analysis provided by Qliance Medical Management Inc. shows that the DPC model has the potential to lower healthcare costs by 20% per individual per year, while leaving patients feeling more satisfied with their care. The study showed a 66% reduction in radiology, a 53% reduction in ER visits, a 77% reduction in surgeries, and a 16% reduction in inpatient hospital days.

With the emphasis on unrestricted access to primary care, along with a more personalized approach, individuals in a DPC arrangement are able to get the care they need to stay healthier and more productive.
