Medford, Oregon (PressExposure) October 14, 2015 -- Direct Primary Care (DPC) is positive Healthcare reform and is recognized under the Affordable Care Act.
Dr. McClane Duncan and Drs. Blake and Sarah Sue Myers began offering Direct Primary Care September 1st, 2015. They are leading the way to changing the dynamics of primary care medicine. The doctors are leveraging the technology of today and providing their patients a better healthcare experience. They provide direct primary care services through healthcare memberships, (think Costco Wholesale for Healthcare) and do not require insurance. In fact, that is the reason why the memberships are so affordable. Research has shown 40% of every dollar spent on health is paid for the administration of insurance. By cutting the middleman out, patients have better access to affordable quality care. The Clinic offers healthcare memberships for unrestricted, comprehensive primary and urgent care and has the capacity for 600 members per physician.
Their (DPC) model is a drastic shift from conventional insurance models. Direct Primary Care Members enjoy minimal wait times, unhurried appointments, same week appointments, home visits and technology visits. Members get procedures for only the cost of materials and receive wholesale lab testing and prescriptions. All memberships are co-pay and deductible free and provide unrestricted access to SVM Physicians. Their plans are $100 or less a month. Patients have a direct relationship with their doctors and are given their doctors private contact info so they can reach out to their doctor, whenever needed.
