Another Way To Pay The Doctor: Direct Primary Care

Aug 30, 2017

The many health insurance discussions generally do not include any mention of direct primary care (DPC)

The payment scheme in DPC is like a cable TV or cellphone bill: a monthly flat fee that is not connected to how much you use the service. 

The model is already in use in our region. 

Dr. Jill Friesen in Redding operates a DPC practice, as does Dr. Phillipp Olshausen in Medford. 

Dr. Olshausen and Dr. Friesen's office manager, Mary Brace, join us to talk about the day-to-day business of their medical practices.
