What is Direct Primary Care?
Under the Direct Primary Care (DPC) model, the patient (you) receives comprehensive primary health care directly from their DPC physician. The patient pays for this care through a monthly, quarterly or annual fee, paid directly to YourChoice Direct Care.
Because DPC practices do not accept insurance payments, the providers are able to avoid the ever-increasing and costly documentation demands and administrative intrusions that come with accepting insurance payments. DPC practices also avoid the onerous patient data collection responsibilities which many plans impose. These require staff, time, and money, often amounting to substantial intrusions on patient privacy.
Because DPC physicians avoid these obligations to insurance companies, they are free to spend that time listening to and treating patients. And because DPC physicians eliminate the significant overhead costs of participating in insurance, they can pass the savings on to you, the patient – and give compassionate, attentive and timely care at an affordable cost. At YourChoice, you are not a “covered life” but a person.
