Direct primary care (DPC) is an innovative primary healthcare model that helps people stay healthier while spending less on healthcare. Unlike traditional primary care practices, which are forced to serve the needs of insurers, DPC practices eliminate the “middlemen” and exclusively serve the needs of their patients. In exchange for a set monthly membership fee, DPC patients receive unrestricted access to their primary care physician and unlimited primary care services – without having to worry about copays or other insurance company hassles. It’s almost like having a doctor in the family.
Who Supports DPC?
As more people – both physicians and patients alike – are recognizing that honesty and price transparency are the building blocks of a strong and productive doctor-patient relationship, the DPC movement is gaining traction across the nation. Others are firmly on board as well. For instance, some noteworthy organizations that support DPC include:
- Access Healthcare Direct
- American Academy of Family Physicians
- Association of American Physicians & Surgeons
- American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians
- Direct Primary Care Coalition
- DPCMH (Direct Primary Care Medical Home) Association
- DPC Alliance
- DPC Nation
- Family Medicine Educational Consortium
- Free Market Medical Association
- Physicians Proviso
- Primary Care Progress
- Samaritan Ministries
- United Physicians and Surgeons of America
