What is a Health Share Plan DPC membership?
A membership program that gives you affordable access to unlimited out-of-hospital primary, chronic, and acute care services with a low co-pay per visit. HSP membership also provides access to additional services, outside-of-hospital, at greatly reduced Time of Service pricing.
What is Direct Primary Care (DPC)?
Direct Primary Care is an innovative alternative payment model for primary care that is embraced by patients, physicians, employers, payers and policymakers across the United States. The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider. DPC restores the patient doctor relationship and removes the insurance company from the equation. DPC members pay a monthly, quarterly or annual fee and in return receive free or greatly reduced time of service pricing on the health care services that they need. This empowers the doctor-patient relationship and is the key to achieving superior health outcomes, lower costs and an enhanced patient experience.
