Concierge Medicine: Direct Primary Care - What is it?

Panel discussion with Andrea Axtell, MD, Alliance Concierge Care; Richard Johnson, COO of Pingman Tools; and Dr. Mark Grajcar, Initial Point Assured, Direct Primary Care.

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a relatively new concept in health care that is gaining traction in the Treasure Valley. DPC restores the time-honored patient-physician relationship. Physicians spend more time with each patient, communicate directly with their patients, and may offer weekend appointments. The patient or employer pays an annual fee to the doctor in return for more personalized care, typically combining much of the primary care services into one affordable, flat-fee package. DPC Is not a substitute for health insurance, but rather a complement to major medical plans, particularly HSAs. It can lower utilization costs in an employer medical plan, while providing comprehensive and personalized healthcare to the employee.
