What is Direct Primary Care (DPC)?

DPC IS NOT Health Insurance.

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative alternative payment model improving access to high functioning healthcare with a simple, flat, affordable membership fee.  No fee-for-service payments.  No third party billing.  The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider.  Patients have extraordinary access to a provider of their choice for a low monthly fee, and providers are accountable first and foremost their patients.  DPC is embraced by health policymakers on the left and right and creates happy patients and nurse practitioners all over the country!

How? with a simple, flat, affordable membership fee, which means:

  • No fee-for-service payments: DPC eliminates undesired fee-for-service(FFS) incentives in primary care. These incentives distort healthcare decision-making by rewarding volume over value. This undermines the trust that supports the patient-provider relationship and rewards expensive and inappropriate testing, referral, and treatment. DPC replaces FFS with a simple flat monthly fee that covers comprehensive primary care services.
  • No third-party billing: No processing fee, no delays.
  • No Co-pays: No extra out of pocket payments, just a flat monthly fee.
  • No Deductibles: You won’t have to reach a threshold to start receiving the healthcare you deserve.
  • No Insurance Required: No hassles!
  • Better Access to your Primary Healthcare provider at a much lower cost: This is the Key Success factor of DPC; adequate time spent between patient and Medical Provider, creating an enduring relationship.

Where Health Insurance Fails,

  • DPC achieves the goal of having freedom by contracting directly with each patient for services and offering unlimited contact and conversation for a month-to-month membership fee.
  • DPC eliminates the Insurance Middle Man and saves you money! It’s a Win Win situation.!!

Legal background: Colorado  HB17-1115 was signed into law on 04/24/17 making Colorado the 20th state to pass DPC legislation. Numerous DPC practices are known to be operating within the state.
