Episode 20: Direct Primary Care Model – Is This The Model For You?

  1. Episode 20: Direct Primary Care Model – Is This The Model For You? Sandy Kibling 15:38

Susan S. shares her story:

I was tired of being rushed through a doctor’s visit and having to repeat myself or gather additional paperwork when my specialist wasn’t communicating with my primary care doctor. Healthcare is expensive enough without having to manage this too and even more concerning, what if something gets missed?

Trying the Direct Primary Care Model (DPC) was a win for me…I was impressed with my experience. I admire that physicians are changing the trajectory of healthcare going without contracts with healthcare insurance companies and putting their livelihoods on the line.  Why? because they want to care for patients…really care for patients. They understand the frustrations of their patients and are concerned that the current model with gaps and miscommunication could result in a negative outcome and we deserve better.

Today we will discuss:

1)    What is the Direct Primary Care Model?

2)    Pros and Cons of a Direct Primary Care Model?

3)    Is Direct Primary Care the Right Model For YOU?
