Direct Primary Care FAQ’s
WHAT IS DIRECT PRIMARY CARE?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) practices offer patients the full range of comprehensive primary services, including routine care, regular checkups, preventive care, and care coordination in exchange for a flat, recurring retainer fee billed to patients on a monthly basis. DPC is an innovative alternative payment model for primary care being embraced by patients, physicians, employers, payers and policymakers across the United States. The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider. DPC enables unhurried interactions and frequent discussions to assess lifestyle choices and treatment decisions aimed at long term health and wellbeing. DPC practices have extended hours, ready access to urgent care, and patient panel sizes small enough to support this commitment to service. DPC also meets the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
