How Much Does Direct Primary Care Cost?

How Much Does Direct Primary Care Cost?If you’ve become frustrated with having to wait a week or longer to see your doctor, you might be interested in exploring alternatives to the traditional primary health care model. One option is direct primary care (DPC), a practice model in which patients pay a set monthly membership fee up front without any third-party involvement. You can see your DPC doctor as often as you like – without the hassles of dealing with an insurance company.

The DPC Advantage

As a DPC member, you establish a close and productive relationship with a doctor you trust. You benefit from same-day or next-day appointment availability for non-emergency urgent care and routine preventive care, as well as telemedicine consultations via voice, video conferencing, and SMS text. And, you never have to worry about meeting high deductibles, paying on-the-spot copays, or completing complicated insurance forms in order to receive the primary health care services you need.

The Monthly Membership Fee

If all of this sounds great, your next question is probably, “How much does it cost?” Like many people, you are probably concerned about the rising cost of health care. In fact, according to the most recent data available from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the average American spent $9,596 on health care in 2012, which was up significantly from $7,700 in 2007.

You might be surprised to learn that DPC is quite affordable. At Optimum Direct Care, a DPC practice located near Orlando, FL, our membership fees range from $40 to $150 per month based on a patient’s age. We also offer group discounts. And, because we’ve completely eliminated health insurance companies and other third-party payers from the primary health care equation, you don’t need to pay high insurance premiums for primary health care services (however, we do recommend that you still carry “catastrophic” insurance coverage for health-related emergencies, hospitalizations, and specialist care for complex illnesses and injuries).

If you’re considering DPC, contact Optimum Direct Care. We’ll be happy to answer your questions and tell you more about our practice and our doctor, Dr. Toni “Muzzi” Muzzonigro.

“When I left my corporate job to start my own business, one of many new challenges was finding quality health care. When I was starting to look for a new Primary Care Doctor, a peer recommended Direct Primary Care. I did some research and found Dr. Muzzi. In the years leading up to finding Dr. Muzzi, the way I think about my health evolved to fit a more modern view of health and science with a focus on overall wellness and preventative medicine. I was surprised and delighted on my first visit to find Dr. Muzzi not only shared this view, but was practicing medicine in this way. Focusing on my overall wellness rather than treating symptoms has improved my quality of life and undoubtedly add quality years to my life. Dr. Muzzi knows me. She knows what I do for work, where I travel, sports and activities, our pets, what I wear to Burning Man and even knows my Dad (who approves!). Taken at face value, this may seem like a cute note to show that we’re friendly. But this depth of knowledge is organically woven into the care she provides every time we speak and my health is better for it. I never imagined Dr. Muzzi existed before I found her. Now, I can’t picture a future of my healthcare without her. If the traditional Doctor / Patient relationship makes you feel like you’re stuck in I4 traffic (frustrated & certain no one will ever fix it) and you want to change that, you’re in the right place.”
