DIRECT PRIMARY CARE

— Better care. Less expensive. Zero hassle. —

What is Direct Primary Care?

Direct primary care (DPC) is an innovative model of health care delivery that seeks to simplify the system.  Remedy Health is part of a nation-wide movement aimed at returning the focus of healthcare where it should be: on the patient.  We believe that physicians and their patients should be in control of healthcare decisions, not insurance companies.

While we welcome patients with insurance, we do not file claims or accept insurance payments. Instead, our patients pay a flat monthly membership fee that covers primary care needs – unlimited acute care visits, routine care visits, and tests and procedures that can be done in our office – no copays required.

DPC Offers Improved Quality of Care

Because our doctors spend less time dealing with insurance companies and other healthcare mechanisms, they can spend more time getting to know their patients. They learn your wellness baseline, and they know when something is off. Because they don’t have to answer to insurance companies, they can work with patients to get to the root of the problem and develop the treatment plan that works best for the individual.

But more than treating problems as they arise, our doctors empower patients to be proactive about their health and wellness.

They do this by sharing life-transforming skills and evidenced-based knowledge, and working with patients to track progress, making adjustments as needed.
