DIRECT PRIMARY CARE

As professionals, we cannot always predict changes in the economic, political, or insurance markets. However, what we can alter is how we react to those changes. Recent developments in the insurance market at both the national and local level have limited the insurance companies we are able to contract with due to economic pressures.

WHAT DO WE DO?

Many of the new insurance plans that have been adopted and that are growing in popularity rely on “cost-sharing” which forces much of the cost of care on the individual consumers. You have likely already observed larger deductibles, larger co-pays, and a multitude of out-of-network fees. Some of these things, we simply cannot change. So, we innovate.

We are proposing a model of care known as Direct Primary Care (DPC). You will continue to see us for your primary care, and we will provide a list of services to you at a fixed monthly price. You will continue to retain insurance for those unfortunate times when insurance is truly needed.

THE RESULTS

In our search of a better model, we wondered, “what would it cost for us to obtain these services at the fair market value if we wanted to pay on a case by case basis?” Let us illustrate that research with an example of a 55 year old male who did a cost analysis of both models.

In our simple example, the savings amounted to $1092.15. To any of us, that is significant. That is what we want to save you. As we mentioned earlier, many of the new insurance programs are high-deductible plans. Therefore, if you had an annual out-of-network deductible of $3000, the $720 dollars spent on DPC would go towards your out-of-network deductible for that year. You would be left with $2280 left in your deductible for that year. We provide these services in our office to save you overall healthcare costs.
