Why this works.
Traditionally, over 40¢ of every $1 you spend on healthcare goes toward insurance billing and overhead. This means your clinician must work harder and faster, seeing more patients each day just to make ends meet. As a patient, you experience longer wait times, shorter appointments and higher costs. Instead of dealing with costly overhead, we reinvest that 40¢ in our clinic, into electronic medical records and into patient services. You experience shorter wait times, longer appointments and lower costs.
We believe traditional insurance should be there when you need it – for serious illness and expensive, unanticipated events. Insurance should not interfere with routine primary and preventive care by reducing access to your doctor, shortening office visits and increasing costs. Although we do not bill insurance companies, we believe you can enhance your healthcare with a combination of direct primary care and a wrap-around insurance plan.
Health and Healing DPC and a high deductible health plan (i.e. bronze) allows you to spend less, but get more. A high deductible insurance plan allows you to maintain affordable insurance coverage for major medical problems while ensuring access to primary care for your routine medical needs. At Health and Healing DPC we handle 90% of your medical problems. We also refer to the same specialists you see now. We prescribe the same medications you are taking now. We order the same radiological procedures. Nothing changes except you get more personal, accessible and comprehensive care!
