THE Direct Primary Care MODEL
Direct primary care is about refocusing on patient-physician relationships as a source of health and wellness. Rather than engaging with the inefficiencies that come from over-documentation and fee-for-service models, direct primary care is built to be sustainable purely on the basis of monthly subscription fees paid by employers and patients. This means a group of 500-600 patients can sustain a physician, nurse, the costs associated with a clinic, and related insurance/business expenses. More unusual and costly labs are completed at a lower negotiated rate or can be billed to insurance. All pricing is completely transparent.
The limited size of the patient panel and the elimination of the hassles of insurance documentation/billing make it normal for patients to have 30 minutes or more with their physician. Appointments can be made on the same or next day. Direct primary care medical practices have a substantially beneficial impact on both the quality and cost of care.
Benefits and Savings from Direct Primary Care
Time magazine reported cost savings were estimated to be between 15% and 30% when using direct primary care. At the same time, over 95% of patients expressing satisfaction with their experience.
In another analysis of direct primary care, the Heritage Foundation reports a savings of over $2,500 per patient per year over traditional care with dramatically better outcomes including substantial decreases in admissions to hospitals, surgeries, and use of specialists.
