These two short programs are good representations of Direct Patient Care except that 24/7 access is not offered by this practice.

How Our Direct Patient Care Practice Works

  • We do NOT take any form of health insurance except Medicare.
  • We do encourage you to have insurance or one of the Christian sharing plans for the ER, specialist visits, imaging, medications, and hospitalizations that can’t be avoided
  • We are an excellent alternative if you simply cannot afford full coverage insurance, if your deductible is high or if you like the idea of personal, timely care
  • We charge a one-time registration fee and a low monthly fee that covers most of the care you need
  • Patients are limited by the number of providers so that same day/next day appointments are always available although no Saturday or Sunday appointments for now
  • We offer labs at a very low cost. A full range of routine adult yearly lab tests can cost $900+ elsewhere. The same labs can cost as little as $40 with Direct Patient Care.
  • Services provided include most services and procedures in any primary care office and most services provided in an ER/Urgent Care not requiring a specialist to be called.
