Direct Primary Care is increasingly recognized as the gold standard for primary care.
The Washington state legislature recognizes Direct Primary Care as “an innovative, affordable option which could improve access to medical care, reduce the number of people who now lack such access, and cut down on emergency room use for primary care purposes”.
A large actuarial study found that Direct Primary Care members had fewer ER visits/costs, 25% lower hospital admissions, and lower risk-adjusted claim costs.
The Milliman Consulting Firm now has expanded their recommendation for Direct Primary Care to many small employers and self-insured larger employers.
The Wise Patient Direct Primary Care (DPC) Membership Fee is: $100/month. The Concierge Medicine (CM) Membership Fee is: $75/month.
The membership is a flat rate, no down payment, no minimal term, and you can discontinue at any time without penalty.It allows the doctor a smaller more exclusive practice, about one third of a normal practice size. With fewer total patients, a physician can provide more detailed care which should result in healthier happier patients. Membership Medicine is an innovative way to deliver primary care that is catching on across the country.
