The care we are offering is like nothing being offered in this market today. Buying extensive insurance coverage will not get you the type of services in this new model of care. 24/7 access, home visits, hospital visits, deeply discounted medicines and labs, no co-pay, and pre-existing conditions welcome. Coverage does not equal care! Direct Primary Care has been proven to keep people out of the hospital and to keep people more healthy than fee for service medicine. ..."patients experienced 56 percent fewer non-elective admissions, 49 percent fewer avoidable admissions, and 63 percent fewer non-avoidable admissions than patients of traditional practices." From Daniel McCorry of the Heritage Foundation.

“Direct care is anticipating what our country needs — proactive and affordable medicine. One of the biggest issues facing our country is the crippling cost of healthcare. We are pioneering a system of medicine where people don’t talk themselves out of seeing a doctor. A subscription model that’s affordable, combined with affordable insurance coverage, means patients are spending less per month, and are completely covered. More of this situation, means more preventative care. We believe this goes beyond just anticipating what someone needs today. It’s addressing what they never needed tomorrow — diabetes, heart disease, obesity…”
The Government Proposed 10 Rules For Redesigning Healthcare. And Now Direct Care Is Finally Addressing Them.
Direct primary care (DPC) is a growing 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.
