In Direct Primary Care, the patient pays their doctor a monthly membership fee. By doing so, a DPC doctor does not have to bill insurance companies. The result is the doctor is not over burdened by paperwork and "red tape". The doctor is able to give the best of his or her knowledge and time to take care of you.
