THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF MEMBERSHIP

Washington State Is Fully On Board

Washington State is fully on board with direct primary care. Permanent law RCW 48.150 “Direct Patient-Provider Primary Health Care” can be accessed at http://tinyurl.com/kt627jy. It is well written and full of appropriate patient protections. This law emphasizes that DPC practices do not bill insurance for primary care services and that patients may discontinue their membership at any time.

Categories of Care

Doctor-patient interactions will generally fit into one of these six categories:

  • On The Fly: Written messages on the portal or via text message.

  • Phone Care: 15 minute (or less) conversations scheduled into the MD’s workday.

  • Face to Face Focused Appointments: Usually limited to 1-2 topics.

  • Face to Face Overview Appointments: Ideally once every 6 months. Not required but highly encouraged master strategy sessions about ‘the big picture’ and how to achieve your long-term health goals.

  • Once Yearly Full Physical Exam: Dr. Beda sometimes uses handheld ultrasound technology within this physical exam.

  • Fitness Tracking: This can take many forms depending on technology preference of patient.
