The typical monthly fee is about as much as your cell phone bill. That's a small price to pay for a level of care you literally can't get anywhere else. Imagine asking your hospital doctor for their personal cell number—they'd probably laugh out loud. Or call your local hospital and ask to schedule an appointment for tomorrow—not likely. Those things—any many more—come free with a DPC membership.
Not to mention: the membership fee can often pay for itself. Most DPC practices have an established relationship with local laboratories and radiology centers. That means you can get blood tests, pathology screens, X-rays, MRIs, and more for low cash prices. Most DPC practices dispense medications in-house at near-wholesale prices, so you can both save money and avoid extra trips to the pharmacy. Plus, as a DPC member, you may be able to save a lot of money on insurance by switching to a high-deductible plan. Learn more about saving money with DPC here.
In short: being a member of a DPC practice is like having a doctor in the family. Your doctor will always be in your corner, working to keep you as healthy as possible. It’s an amazing feeling.
