Compared to the traditional primary care model which discourages preventative care and ultimately reduces productivity with:
  • Out of pocket costs to pay deductibles and copays for clinic visits.
  • Average of approximately 3 weeks to get an appointment.
  • Average of 42 minutes waiting to be seen.
  • Average of 8 minutes face to face with the physician or nurse practioner.
  • Inability to communicate directly with the physician. 
  • Employees typicall end up in high cost urgent care or ER for minor issues.
So how is this possible?
  • Direct Primary Care practices don’t participate in insurance panels which constitutes upwards of 70% of a clinic’s overhead.
  • By cutting out the exorbitant overhead, DPC physicians are able to see fewer patients to achieve the same revenue.
  • With fewer patients, DPC physicians are able to spend more time with patients achieving early and accurate diagnoses. Excessive labs, imaging or subspecialist referrals are severly reduced and used only as needed.

-  Non-benefitted employees
  • Small Businesses who are not required to provide employee health plans, but want to provide benefits for certain high value employees.
  •  The employer pays the membership fee, $50-75 per month. The employee has the responsibility to obtain catastrophic insurance coverage on their own. Short-term and high deductible policies for healthy individuals can be as low as $100/month.
  • 85-90% of the Employee’s health care needs can be managed in a DPC practice, with the employee having zero out of pocket costs. A $50-75 contribution can potentially generate a $7,900 benefit to the employee by eliminating out of pockets costs for routine medical care.
