Direct Primary Care (DPC)

Direct Primary Care (DPC) in San Antonio

What is DPC?

  • it is an alternative model for primary medical care that recreates the fundamental partnership between patient and medical professional to enhance access, improve quality of care, and reduce costs
  • offers primary care services at affordable prices for a flat monthly fee paid by the patient or their employer
  • increases access through a more reasonable number of patients per provider, responsive scheduling, and more direct communication with your healthcare professional
  • improved health outcomes and patient experience are achieved from the investment between you and your healthcare provider
  • removes our patients, and their care, from the arbitrary, intrusive decisions that inevitably follow with third-party payers (insurance). furthermore, this arrangement frees us from the typical contractual agreements that prevents practitioners from offering reduced prices on laboratory tests and imaging

What It’s Not

  • it’s not an insurance program or plan — it is primary health care
  • it’s not encumbered by standard billing organizations, insurance authorization, third party payers, or other organization that impede your care — it is direct care
  • it’s not concierge care — costs of care are comparable to the current fee-for-service model, but improved access provides better utilization for more expensive resources, such as reducing repetitive tests, radiology studies, and emergency department utilization
  • it’s not a substitute for insurance — insurance is still needed for serious medical problems and for coverage for complex care — direct primary care exists alongside of major medical insurance, which may be needed in case of accidents and serious illnesses
