Really. We Mean It. This Is Direct Primary Care.
If you’ve been to the Doctor in America, you’re probably wondering how this is possible by cutting insurance out of the picture. Insurance is radically inconsistent with the provision of comprehensive, compassionate medical care. When a doctor bills your insurance, they are forced to submit an itemized list of each and every medical service they provided; the bigger the list, the more they are paid. And not surprisingly, insurance companies will not pay a doctor unless they see you in the clinic, thereby de-incentivizing doctors from answering your messages or texts, visiting you in your home, calling you to make sure you’re getting better, or really getting to know you.
In direct primary care DPC, you pay a flat monthly membership fee for unlimited care, usually around the size of your cell phone bill. You can pay with recurring bank account drafts, or with your credit/debit card—no more clipboards with pages of insurance paperwork, or denied claims because of incorrect coding or incomplete documentation.
What do you spend more than $80/month on? Is it more valuable than your health?
Direct Primary Care is like having a doctor in the family; it’s healthcare like you’ve never experienced it. The innovative model of Birchwood Family Medicine provides a level of service that is unprecedented in traditional insurance-based models of medical care. Birchwood Family Medicine closely resembles the doctor-patient relationship of decades ago where patients received personalized care in an unhurried environment. In this model, patients receive unlimited comprehensive primary care services from Dr. Dall-Winther in return for a fixed monthly fee, which is guaranteed to be just a fraction of what nearby health care systems charge for a single visit. Birchwood Family Medicine provides patients with direct attention from their physician when they need it. DPC occurs outside of insurance and government systems. This allows our practice to remove the barriers of administrative “red-tape” and leads to the lowest operational overhead possible, thereby allowing Dr. Dall-Winther to spend less time on administrative duties and more time caring for YOU.
