Welcome to Grants Pass Family Medicine, PC
Announcing Direct Primary Care! Sign up today!
We are changing our practice model to Direct Primary Care, a membership model of healthcare. All current patients who have commercial insurance or Medicare will be offered this exciting new model of care. We are also accepting new patients to begin April 1st. If you are an existing patient, or would like to be, sign-up today!
What does Direct Primary Care mean for me?
Dr. Givens is excited to show you this new way of bringing you CARE. We do things differently here! Insurance billing is not part of our practice anymore. Starting April 1st, we will be caring for patients directly, without the red tape of dealing with insurance companies. Read the patient flyer!

But I already have insurance, why do I need this?
Because coverage does not equal care. We all know how much hassle there is in the current system with short, rushed visits, long waits, inefficient communication with your doctor through phone trees & staff. That's because of the way a traditional practice has to run to deal with insurance. We bring you the care you need without those hassles, all included for a low monthly fee. You get direct access to your doctor.
But why would I buy this when I already have to buy insurance?
Having insurance can still mean your out of pocket costs are high. When you add up all of the co-pays and your annual deductible. Being a member means you won't have to worry about paying for routine visits or sick visits. Your visits for health maintenance, chronic disease management and even the unexpected illness are included. The cost is predictable with no surprises.
But do I need insurance?
Yes. Our practice is not offering insurance. We are providing primary care services within the scope of Family Medicine for a flat monthly fee. Talk to your insurance agent about which type of insurance would fit with your membership.
Why Become a Member?
One of the biggest (and most important) differences you’ll find between us, a Direct Care practice, and other traditional family practices is the number of patients we see.
Most family docs routinely include 2,500 patients or more in their practices. Others around the country are even more packed— 3,000 to 4,000 patients!
With Grants Pass Family Medicine, you’ll be part of an intimate family practice where we see hundreds of patients compared to thousands. With this solid foundation, the advantages are inevitable and plentiful. We have time for you.
What does Membership Include?
Reliable access to your doctor.
Literally. After hours, weekends, holidays – there’s no bad time to receive excellent medical care, especially when you really need it.
Extended, relaxed visits.
You won’t feel rushed through an appointment and there’s never a question you won’t have time to ask. Part of the relationship you’ll build with your doctor is based on your understanding of your care. That’s what we call personal healthcare.
Same-day and next-day service scheduling.
Because we reserved time for our members, there will be no “squeezing you in.” You’re a priority and you’ll feel like one.
We understand there may be times when making it into our office can be challenging and a home visit would be more beneficial… in these circumstances, we will come to you.
Full access via technology.
You’ll be able to reach our team via phone, e-mail, text, webcam and more.
An annual physical.
This exam will be fitted to your personal medical needs. It’s all about you and your specific wellness goals.
Diagnostic and procedural benefits at no extra costs.
EKG, Holter Monitor, Spirometry, Breathing Treatments, Cryotherapy, Skin Lesion Removal, Laceration Repair, just to name a few. These are included in your monthly fee.
Wholesale labs and medication costs, deeply discounted imaging.
We pass our benefits right to you. Dr. Givens has worked hard to find the best prices for labs + we stock medications in the office to provide to you at wholesale prices.
As partners in your general wellness, we’re fully invested in your healthcare goals. Which is why we offer complete transparency into our practice, billing and communication processes. Your monthly fee and any labs or medication costs are clearly spelled out on your monthly invoice.
What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct primary care (DPC) is a growing practice model used by family physicians and other primary care specialties aimed at delivering quality care at an affordable price. The model emphasizes ongoing and preventive care services, and third-party fee-for-service payments are abandoned. Instead, a periodic (usually monthly) fee is paid to the DPC physician to better reflect the ongoing patient relationship. The affordability of the monthly fee and the high patient and physician satisfaction have garnered national media attention from many news sources including Time, Forbes, the New York Times, and The Hill.

What will it cost?
When you join Grants Pass Family Medicine, you will be a member of a direct primary care medical clinic. You will be paying your doctor directly for your medical care in lieu of the costly and complicated insurance based model of medicine. We make it simple for you to understand the costs, and in most cases, you will be saving money on your healthcare, and in all cases you will be getting much better care. Some examples of the cost savings you will enjoy with this practice model are as follows:
Example of Services Included
|Service||Typical Cost||Our Practice|
|Skin lesion cryotherapy||$210.00||included|
|Rapid Strep test||$57.75||included|
Example Medication Costs: Filled In Office!
|Medication||Typical Cost||Members' Cost|
The fee structure is a simple flat rate based on the age of the patient. The fee includes everything we can do in our medical clinic. Our pricing is transparent which means that patients will no longer be surprised by high primary care medical bills. The bill will be predictable. This model of care saves the patient time and money and allows patients to be in charge of their healthcare again.
|Children 0-19 years old||$10/month with at least one adult membership|
|Adults 20-44 years old||$50/month|
|Adults 45-64 years old||$70/month|
|Adults 65+ years old||$85/month|
|Employer groups with 5+ employees||$50/mo/adult|
