About Direct Primary Care (DPC)
The goal of direct primary care is to remove many of the hassles and costs that come when health insurance is involved in health care decisions. Insurance only makes sense for expensive and unpredictable costs. If car insurance covered gasoline, windshield wipers, and tires, it would be incredibly expensive, in part because people would be less careful with how they used these things, but also because everyone would require documentation to prove what happened at every step. Healthcare is the same way. Primary care – that is, everything around the doctor-patient relationship including consultation for illness, managing of chronic disease, and access to proper and careful assessment of medications – can be done much more efficiently outside of insurance coverage.
