DPC is short for Direct Primary Care. It has come to mean a low volume, very accessible general medical practice that only accepts cash or credit and does not file insurance or Medicare. “But I have a shiny, glossy, expensive insurance card in my purse or wallet,” you might be asking. Hey, that’s great, because everyone needs insurance for the big expenses, i.e. hospitalizations, major surgery, chemotherapy, etc. However, you don’t need it to get great primary care at great prices and unbeatable access. In fact, we at Face Value Health will argue that insurance, which is great when used as intended for hospitals and specialists, actually restricts your access to primary care. Insurance significantly increases overhead costs by multiplying administrative hassles and paperwork, leading to more staff to handle the billing. As a result, the doctors must see higher volumes and sometimes even way too many patients. That means that you can’t get an appointment when you need it, you have to wait a long time to see the doctor even with your appointment, and to add insult to injury, you have to pay a much higher price for it all. By cutting ties to insurance, Face Value Health DPC can afford to offer you the kind of service you rarely see these days. Learn about our advantages below. I think you'll find that you get a lot more value at Face Value.
