Direct Primary Care
What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care is an emerging, forward-thinking alternative to the standard, costly payment model for primary care. It is being embraced by patients, physicians, employers, payers and policymakers throughout the United States. Direct primary care was designed to provide high quality, thorough primary medical care without barriers to accessing your personal doctor, while also promoting a longstanding, trusted relationship between patients and physicians at an affordable, predictable cost.
In other words, your health, questions, needs and own schedule come first, on your own terms, between you and your doctor. Not constrained by what an insurance company requires, not dictated by what plan you may have. It is primary care the way it used to be, the way it should be.
What does my monthly membership to a Direct Care doctor give me?
Time and Quality.
Time with patients is the most important metric, yet time is something we aren’t given in the insurance-based primary care world. The truth is, great care takes time and we can no longer pretend that rushing through patients is still giving great care. The patient-doctor relationship is valuable and should not be limited.
At Arktos, the emphasis is on high quality care – not only during office visits, but via direct, open, ongoing communication with your doctor. Medical advice will be available to you at work, home, or while traveling, all through phone and text or email. Your time is valuable, and will not be wasted in waiting rooms.
All members will be given access to their providers through cell phone number, email address, and patient portal messages.
You will have predictable yearly costs for comprehensive basic health care needs independent of how much medical care and advice you need each year. You will use your insurance on specialty labs, services, referrals, or hospitalizations only when it is needed. Regardless, quality care and easy access to your doctor is exactly what helps avoid unnecessary costs like specialty care and hospital procedures.
Arktos Direct Care was built around the idea that the patient-doctor relationship should be the driving force to your optimal health.
