More FAQs About DPC
Why a Monthly Fee?
With a monthly membership, we can provide our patients better, more convenient care. There's a few reasons.
Fewer Barriers to Care
In traditional primary care, patients save their medical questions and health concerns for a single visit in order to save money and the hassle of repeated appointments. This leads to subpar healthcare.
When there is no extra cost to see your doctor, you will seek care quicker, ask more questions, schedule more follow-up appointments, and be more free to focus on prevention.
More Flexible Access to Care
When patients pay per visit, it forces their doctors to bring them into the office for everything.
With a membership, you can text your doctor, have a telemedicine visit from home, get care while on vacation, and more. Easier more flexible access leads to better health.
Can I Still Use Insurance with DPC?
Absolutely, just not for the membership fee. Our patients with great insurance frequently use it to cover labwork, referrals, imaging, and more.
However, the majority of patients with insurance will find it is about 90% cheaper to pay cash pricing for these things. In fact, if you are one of the 95% of people who does not routinely hit your insurance deductible, our model of healthcare will save you money.
