Direct primary care is a relatively new model of primary care practice that is growing across the nation. Direct primary care practices contract directly with patients to provide all of the primary care services that they need for one flat monthly fee.

This allows patients and physicians to work together for the best interest of the patient, without interference from third parties such as insurance companies. It also allows patients to save money as they do not need to worry about co-pays or deductibles when seeking care, and many practices include same-day, next-day, and virtual visits to prevent the need to visit urgent cares or emergency rooms for acute problems.

Many practices also offer discounted lab pricing and work with patients to find affordable options for imaging studies and procedures.

In addition to primary care services, direct care has expanded to include specialty physician practices as well. These practices allow patients to seek care directly from physician specialists in areas such as dermatology, endocrinology, and more. Patients are able to see a physician specialist for an affordable, transparent cost without having to worry about complicated referral processes through insurance carriers.

Direct care physicians are committed to providing the highest standard of care to all patients with affordable, transparent pricing. Meet our physicians to learn more about their practices and find the right physician for you!
