It's clear that the current system is not an efficient, cost effective way to deliver healthcare. Have you ever scheduled an appointment months in advance, only to sit in the waiting room for an hour, followed by an unsatisfying 10 minute doctor visit where you feel rushed out the door? That's par for the course these days.
DPC is different.
As a DPC patient, you forge a relationship with a doctor that knows you. No more scheduling months in advance; your DPC doctor is at your fingertips. If you need an in-person visit, you can usually book one the very next day. Your doctor will stay on top of your health: running preventative tests, diagnosing you when you're sick, prescribing medicines (and often dispensing them to you directly at wholesale prices — no extra trip to the pharmacy!) Blood tests and x ray scans are arranged at wholesale prices. You can text, email or even use your phone as a phone and call your doctor to quickly address any health concerns or questions you have. Don't think you have the wrong number when the doctor actually answers the phone!
How is this possible? By cutting insurance out of the picture. Insurance is fundamentally incompatible with providing comprehensive, compassionate care. When a doctor bills your insurance, they are forced to submit an itemized list of each and every medical service they provided. If they don't, they won't get paid. But—surprise, surprise—no insurance company will pay a doctor for answering one of your texts, reminding you to avoid red meat, answering personally when you call, opening the door for you when you arrive at the office, or asking about your family!
In DPC, you pay a flat monthly membership fee, usually around the size of your cell phone bill. You can pay with your credit card—no more clipboards with pages of insurance paperwork.
If it seems like everything is a subscription these days, that’s because it’s the best way for a business to offer a high-quality service and excellent support over a long period of time. What if Netflix nickel-and-dimed you for every episode of Stranger Things you watched? It would be awful. DPC is like Netflix: you get access to nearly unlimited care for one low monthly price.
This is healthcare like you've never experienced it. It's like having a doctor in the family.
