Benefits Of Direct Primary Care
Since the inception of modern healthcare, providers and patients have relied on healthcare insurance providers to act as an intermediary for providing affordable and relatable care. But what if there was a better way to care for patients and cut down on healthcare costs? There is!
Direct Primary Care refers to an arrangement of primary care directly made between providers and patients. By cutting out insurance altogether, patients pay a low monthly fee and have access to affordable and reliable care services without having to deal with the pricing and complexities of insurance providers.
In addition to saving patients money, Direct Primary Care providers have more direct relationships with their patients, improving autonomy and trust between providers and patients. In some cases, like at Cole Whitmoyer’s Direct Primary Care practice Flex Family Health, patients have 24/7 access to their primary care provider via phone, text, email, etc.
If you’re not already convinced that Direct Primary Care is the future of healthcare, check out these most common benefits of Direct Primary Care:
- More Care– DPC providers typically have more care options available for their patients. By partnering with a range of wellness services, providers may offer additional perks such as yoga, nutrition, acupuncture, medspa services, and more!
- Less Stress– Direct Primary Care providers can help reduce patient/provider stress. On one hand providers don’t have to worry about charting and billing, and on the other, patients no longer need to worry about health insurance coverage.
- Savings– Direct Primary Care memberships help your patients save a lot of money, all while providing them with a higher level of care. In some cases patients can save up to 50% on prescriptions and get major discounts on lab work and testing. Don’t believe us? Cole’s practice charges a monthly fee of $59, whereas the average cost for health insurance for an adult is more than $400.
The bottom line, Direct Primary Care is beneficial for everyone!
