With my first practice, I was In-Network with all the insurances and I would be paid for 30 minutes of treatments. However, when I moved to New York, the insurances would no longer pay for the treatment I provided. I also began to realize how many hours a week I spent on the phone with insurance companies, or submitting appeals to get paid for what my patient’s needed. There had to be a better way. That is when I found out about Direct Primary Care (DPC), a plan for treatment that decreased the cost to the patient while eliminating the overhead and middle men of insurance. With deductibles increasing and out of pocket expenses going up, I truly believe the Direct Primary Care will be the future of medicine.
