Frequently asked questions

What is Direct Primary Care (DPC)?

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a healthcare model where patients pay a flat monthly fee to become members of a DPC practice. This model facilitates a direct financial relationship between patients and their doctors, bypassing insurance and enabling more personalized care. In DPC, doctors provide a range of medical services including preventive, wellness, and chronic disease management.

What are the benefits of Direct Primary Care?

The DPC model provides numerous benefits such as enhanced access to doctors, longer appointment times, same or next-day appointments, and direct communication with healthcare providers. Additionally, many simple diagnostics and procedures may be performed in-office, often at no extra charge. The DPC model emphasizes preventative care and personalized management of chronic conditions.

How much does Direct Primary Care cost?

The pricing for new members is set at $109 USD, with an additional charge of $69 per extra person. The payment process begins only after a friendly video call or an in-person meeting has been conducted to ensure a suitable fit between the healthcare provider and the member. Upon mutual agreement to proceed, the payment is processed, and members are provided with a link to a secure, HIPAA-compliant communication app called Spruce for direct and private conversations with their healthcare provider. Additionally, there's a Family Discount available where the 5th and 6th person are added for free. This model is designed to be more affordable compared to traditional health insurance, aiming to provide a high level of care at a reasonable cost.

Can Direct Primary Care save you money?

DPC can be cost-effective, especially for individuals on multiple medications or those who seek care frequently. Our DPC practice has relationships with local labs and radiology centers for lower cash prices on tests. We are working on relationships with pharmacies for lower prices on commonly used generic medications and provide some injectable medications and antibiotics at no charge in the office. Patients may also save on insurance premiums by switching to high-deductible bronze PPO plans or healthshare plans while enjoying the benefits of DPC membership.

Check out this graph to see how DPC can shave off expenses from your deductible and a HealthShare plan can shave money off your premium even in comparison to the least expensive MA Health Connector Plan.
