How is DPC different than Concierge Medicine?

Direct Primary Care

Monthly membership fee between $50-$100/month, no insurance needed

No additional fees or co-pays for visits or procedures

Direct access to your physician by phone, text, or video chat. After hours, home visits, and weekend appointments available when medically necessary

Independently, locally-owned small business

Special negotiated lab and imaging pricing for members at rates much lower than insurance, and all pricing is provided up-front. Insurance may be used for these outside services if preferred

No long-term contract, membership can be terminated with 30 days notice. Members choose to stay because they value their relationship with their doctor. 

Concierge Medicine

24/7 access to the practice, may be a different practitioner than your usual physician
