Direct primary care, or DPC, is a direct relationship between a patient and physician where the doctor works directly for the patient. This relationship removes the middleman of insurance, which means no co-pays, no deductibles and no surprises. Available to a limited number of patients for an affordable monthly membership fee, Align DPC offers a more convenient approach to primary care.
In a DPC model, the patient is provided with unlimited direct access to their primary care provider.
In addition, physicians have more time for each patient and can address multiple problems in one unhurried visit. Flexible, open schedules reduce unnecessary ER visits - patients can be seen when they are actually sick. When medically appropriate, care can be managed over the phone or via text, email and/or video without an office visit.
