Direct Primary Care Q&A

What is Direct Primary Care?

DPC is a healthcare payment model where you pay a flat, affordable fee and receive attentive medical care without incurring exorbitant costs or additional fees.

As a DPC patient At Front Range Family Medicine you’ll pay a one-time membership fee, plus an age-based low-cost monthly fee that gives you an all-access pass to the clinic and staff. DPC isn’t a contract, so you’re not locked in and can stop payments at any time.

Having DPC means no:

  • Fee for service
  • Insurance copays
  • Third-party billing

DPC isn’t a new concept. Before employer-based health insurance gained popularity in the 1940s, patients paid their doctors directly for care without going through a third-party biller.

What are the benefits of Direct Primary Care?

Patients reap several benefits from DPC, including:

  • Affordability
  • Better patient-doctor relationship
  • Improved health outcomes

DPC gives the medical providers at Front Range Family Medicine the freedom to spend as much time as needed with each patient, sometimes as much as an hour. This allows a strong, trusting, patient-doctor relationship to develop, which improves your experience and enables better overall health care.
