DIRECT PRIMARY CARE
You are not the only one who thinks primary care is way too bureaucratic. Doctors think so too. So they are bringing you a new way to get their service. It’s called Direct Primary Care. In this model, employers contract directly for primary care instead of only using an insurance provider network. Employees are not forced to use these providers. But, once they understand the huge increase in access and service, many will gladly do so. The major stakeholders all win. The employer can reduce cost since chronic conditions are less likely to become acute. The employee receives a concierge level of care. And the doctors go from typically 30-40 patients a day to about 15.
