What is Direct Primary Care and How Does it Work?
Direct primary care is a healthcare delivery model in which patients pay a monthly or annual fee to have access to primary care services. The fees are usually paid directly to the primary care practice or provider, rather than through an insurance plan.
In a direct primary care model, patients typically have unlimited access to their primary care provider, including same-day or next-day appointments, extended visits, and the option to communicate with the provider via phone, email, or text. Patients may also have access to discounted rates for medications, lab tests, and other services.
Here's how direct primary care typically works:
Patients pay a fee to join a direct primary care practice. The fee may be paid monthly or annually.
Patients can then access a wide range of primary care services, including preventive care, chronic disease management, and same-day appointments.
Patients may be able to communicate with their provider via phone, email, or text, and may have access to virtual visits as well.
Patients may also receive discounted rates for medications, lab tests, and other services.
Patients typically pay additional fees for any specialized care or procedures that are not covered under the direct primary care model.
Overall, direct primary care can provide patients with more convenient, personalized, and cost-effective primary care services.
