Direct Primary Care is a new model of healthcare that is gaining popularity because it gives patients access to high quality healthcare at lower costs than traditional insurance-based clinics.
Instead of meeting deductibles and co-pays, you pay one monthly fee that grants you unlimited visits as well as communication by text, email, and live video visits right from the comfort of your home.
With this model, the cost of your primary care is significantly reduced with a drastic increase in the quality of care you receive. This is because the goal of the practice shifts to servicing you and no longer services your insurance company!
This allows for the quality of patient visits to become more important than how many patients can be seen in one day.
The reality is that until you meet your deductible you are paying out of pocket for your healthcare costs. A traditional, conservative co-pay/deductible plan will cost a family of 4 approximately $6,000 a year before you start to experience any of the real benefits. That same family of 4 can pay $150 in monthly membership fees which totals $1,800 a year. Thats a savings of over $4,000 annually!
What if you only want to pay when you ‘need to’? How does it benefit you? Lets take the same family of 4 as above. One annual visit can run each person approximately $300. The average sick visit for a 30 year old can cost approximately $150. One family member is bound to get sick and lets face it, if one person gets sick, everyone in the family gets sick. So $150 x 4 family members in addition to$300 x 4 family members equals $1,800, which is the same amount that family of 4 would pay over an entire year with our membership plan. Now, any other issue that comes up throughout the year is a savings to you!
For less than $2 per day you can have the peace of mind that if any medical issues come up you can always come in and receive care without any extra cost.
