At Mid-Cities Direct Care, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have about our practice or about the DPC model in general. However, there are a few questions that get asked a lot, so we’ve answered some of them below. Simply click on a question to reveal the answer:
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative business model which enables patients to more easily access and interact with their primary care physician. By eliminating unnecessary “middle man” constraints and confusion, the patient-physician relationship is strengthened, thus helping to achieve lower costs, better outcomes, and enhanced patient satisfaction.
A simple, affordable membership fee takes the place of complicated, burdensome, costly feefor-service co-payments, deductibles, co-insurance, EOB’s (explanation of benefits), and denials of care
By establishing a direct relationship between patients and their doctor, time consuming and expensive administrative tasks are taken away, being replaced with lower costs and more time to concentrate on the primary concern, your health and well-being.
No, we do not require our members to have health insurance.
Mid-Cities Direct Care does not bill health insurance or third-party payers, as our annual fee covers routine wellness care, illnesses, and management of chronic medical conditions. However, it is recommended that members have insurance coverage to protect against financial loss or ruin due to unexpected accidents or serious medical illnesses.
Please feel free to come by or send a message to ask questions about our practice and business model. There are no long term contracts required. You have little to risk and perhaps a lot to gain by learning of a new way to obtain primary care services.
