DPC is "'popping up everywhere' — and that could change how we think about healthcare"

March 21, 2018

LevMed, like other DPC practices mentioned in this new article from Business Insider, "is part of a small but fast-growing movement of pediatricians, family-medicine physicians, and internists opting for this different model. It's happening at a time when high-deductible health plans are on the rise." The article states that in "[a] survey in September 2016 found 51% of workers had a plan that required them to pay up to $1,000 out of pocket for healthcare until insurance picks up most of the rest. That means consumers have a clearer picture of how much they're spending on healthcare just as they're having to pay more." 

 

DPC practices like LevMed benefit both the patient and the doctor. According the the article, "At the same time, primary-care doctors in the traditional system are feeling the pressure under the typical fee-for-service model in which doctors are pressured to see more patients. The direct primary-care movement — in which practices are set up on a doctor-by-doctor basis — has been slowly but steadily growing over the past few years, adding about 170 practices in the past year despite some larger practices shutting down. Direct primary care has the potential to simplify basic doctor visits, giving doctors time to focus just on the patient and care for them in ways they might not have had time for otherwise."
