Subscription care simplifies the payment of care and improves the doctor-patient relationship.
Rather than charging a fee for every visit, subscription care providers charge a recurring monthly fee to cover most or all primary care-related services without billing insurance. Subscription care incentivises doctors and healthcare providers to continue delivering the best care possible, while empowering patients to take a more proactive approach to their health.
Subscription Care Plan Types
Direct Primary Care
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an alternative payment model that seeks to improve access to quality care and build stronger relationships between physicians and patients. DPC practices charge periodic, flat fees for services and do not bill third parties on a fee-for-service basis.
Direct Medical Care Arrangement
A Direct Medical Care Arrangement is a monthly membership that an employer or patient can set up with a physician. The membership includes a defined set of medical services for a fixed annual or periodic fee that can be paid for with pre-tax dollars from an FSA, HSA, or HRA.
Virtual Care gives members access to unlimited virtual visits with a primary care physician for a flat, monthly fee. Unlike typical telemedicine services that match patients to the next available physician, Virtual Care lets members choose their own physician based upon their needs.
