For the health of your arteries
What is Direct Pay Care?
Direct Pay Care, or DPC, is a model of healthcare that puts patients first by getting rid of the red tape that constrains traditional practices. How? It’s simple: we don’t accept insurance, and this actually saves you money in the long run.
Is this Insurance?
No, this is not an insurance policy. Think of it more of like hiring a doctor that works for you. You pay a monthly fee so that you can have the access you need to keep you healthy and feeling good. You still need appropriate health insurance to cover other health needs including hospitalizations, etc.
How will this save me money?
You won’t have to pay a co-pay for office visits or routine Wellness Check-ups. Also, you’ll be able to avoid many visits altogether by sending your questions directly to us via email and text – something you won’t get from a traditional practice. We’ve negotiated amazing deals for prescription medications and blood tests on your behalf. If we had contracts with insurance companies, we would be legally obligated to charge higher prices.
How does DPC care differ from Concierge medicine?
In a word, the main difference is affordability. While concierge doctors focus on a handful of wealthy clients who pay a monthly retainer, plus get paid by insurance companies; our DPC model focuses on optimizing your health at an affordable price, without the influence or cost of the middleman.
Will I benefit from your DPC model even if I don’t need frequent medical attention?
Of course. Everyone benefits from a service tailored directly to them. That’s why we offer truly custom healthcare. We help you proactively maintain good overall health. Every visit with us will be thorough and relaxed, and enough time to really address your health concerns. The longer you’re our patient, the more we learn about your health and lifestyle, and the better we can help you maintain that health.
Can I see this type of physician if I’m on Medicare or Medicaid?
Yes, but we can not submit any insurance claims for you. And you must sign a contract stating that you will not submit a claim to Medicare or Medicaid for any of our services.
