Why choose Direct Primary Care? The short answer is that patients need to see their doctor regularly, and their doctors need to be available for them when sudden health issues arise. This plan includes all care that is provided in the office, and as many visits per month as are necessary to keep you healthy.* These may be in the form of office visits, video visits, phone calls, and e-mails). This plan would also cover in-office testing for lab analysis like glucose, hemoglobin, urine testing, or electrocardiograms (EKGs). Any labs ordered could be billed through insurance, like they would normally.

For example, if you have a PPO-type insurance, and a $6,500 deductible, that means your insurance isn't helping you pay for your care until you have spent that much out of your pocket in the year. If you subscribe to Direct Primary Care, you would be paying $195 monthly, which is $2,340 per year. With that, you can be seen the same, or next day, and can always reach me either by phone or e-mail on the same day to make sure you are cared for. This type of health plan gives me the ability to control how many patients I have, which in turn allows me to keep space available in my schedule to accommodate same-day visits and after-hours care, if needed.

Here is a good article by GoodRx that is brief and summarizes some pros and cons of Direct Primary Care:

Our goal is to help our patients optimize their healthcare dollars. Subscription fees spent at Hennessay Medical Direct Primary Care can be deducted from your Health Savings Account (HSA) or FSA.  Unfortunately, the services do not count toward your PPO deductible.  A portion of every subscription is donated to care for an uninsured individual.

Hennessay Medical Direct Primary Care is not an insurance policy. Patients typically choose either a "catastrophic" health insurance plan through a reputable insurance company for additional coverage, or some patients have an HMO or PPO plan they can utilize outside of our practice with our guidance.
