Doctors who are practicing in the Direct Primary Care (DPC) model have a lot of reasons for doing so.
  • It is no secret that in the fee-for-service model physician burnout is a big problem. DPC doctors experience this a lot less than doctors in the fee-for-service model.
  • In the fee-for-service model, many primary care doctors have panels of over 2,500 patients. This makes it very difficult to take proper care of their patients because they don't have the time to spend with each patient as needed.
  • In the fee-for-service model, primary care doctors spend a lot of their time doing administrative work for insurance companies so that they can get paid. They do hardly any administration work in the DPC model, leaving them with a lot more time to spend with patients.
  • In the fee-for-service model, insurance companies can dictate what a doctor can and can't do for their patients. In the DPC model, the doctor has the patients best interest at heart and does not work for the insurance company.
  • DPC doctors are not incentivised to send their patients for unnecessary labs and testing.
  • DPC doctors can look after their patients physical, mental and financial well-being.
  • DPC doctors have a better life-work balance.
  • DPC practices have much lower overheads to run their business. These savings are passed on to patients, allowing DPC doctors to charge a low monthly membership to their patients for full access to DPC. 
  • DPC doctors can achieve better health outcomes for their patients because they can spend the time necessary to treat their conditions.
  • The doctors has time to develop real relationships with their patients and be very accessible to their patients.
