The U.S. health care system ranks poorly among high-income countries, but the direct primary care (DPC) model offers a potential solution. In this model, primary care providers are paid a consistent fee through a retainer or membership program, rather than relying on insurance billing. This frees up providers to spend more time with patients and offer comprehensive care. Both patients and providers in the DPC model report high levels of satisfaction and there is evidence of decreased utilization of expensive services and lower overall health care costs. Join us as we speak with Dr. Sara Pastoor about the potential for the DPC model to improve primary care and the health care system in the U.S.
Sara Pastoor is a family physician.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "The solution to a crumbling primary care foundation is direct primary care."
