DPC -- How and Why It Works

  • Direct primary care practices serve as a patient’s “primary care medical home,”  the place they go for all routine primary, preventive and chronic care management types of care
  • Patients pay one low monthly fee directly to their direct primary care facility for all of their everyday health needs 
  • Like a health club membership, this fee gives patients unrestricted access for visits and care, so patients can use the services as much or as little as they want
  • Many direct primary care practices are open seven days per week and offer same-day or next-day appointments. At many clinics, physicians are on call 24/7
  • There is none of the paperwork and expense required today by insurance reimbursement – no procedure or billing approval, deductibles or co-payments
  • With a lower business overhead and dramatically less paperwork, primary care providers are no longer forced to squeeze in an unmanageable number of patients and can instead take time with each patient and deliver high-quality, personalized care
  • Accidents and the unexpected do happen, so the typical patient in a direct primary care practice keeps an insurance plan to cover emergencies and serious illnesses
  • Because this insurance doesn’t need to cover routine care, many patients choose a less comprehensive plan with a higher deductible and lower premium.

The top 6 executives at Express Scripts

 received over $45 million in one year.

Each time you paid outrageous prices for your prescriptions,

 you also helped pay these executives over $45 million in one year. 

That's really quite generous of you.

BUT, if you're not feeling appreciated by Big Pharma these days, 

there is an alternative.  Why not become a member of DPC St. Louis -- 

you can sidestep that industry completely and buy your medicines at wholesale prices without markup (like Express Scripts does.)
