Direct Care: More than an Alternative Model

Direct Care: More than an Alternative Model

Direct Care: More than an Alternative Model

Sovereign Solutions Editor’s Note:

The featured article is short and sweet, as they say. I have yet to find a more succinct and convincing argument to consider direct pay care in regards to healthcare.

Not only is direct care a  valuable possibility to consider for ones strategically planned healthcare, but it is also a really good and viable [as well as PROVEN] solution for America’s general healthcare market woes.

Freedom works if we only give it a chance. Bureaucratic middle-men and third party interventionist paper pushing health care has had its chance to “show its stuff.” It failed miserably, as the article so quickly and easily demonstrates.

So let’s stop doing the same thing over and over again: insanity has its considerable costs!

Let’s stop PAYING for more for less!!!


The “Direct” in Direct Primary Care refers to dealing solely with patients by purposefully excluding the insurance contract from the professional relationship.  Since Direct Primary Care physicians operate without the restraints and mandates of insurance contracts, they are free to focus on the real needs of their patients; as opposed to representing the insurance network as a “subcontractor”.

This direct engagement enables a level of lifestyle-friendly involvement that naturally leads to a more satisfactory patient-doctor relationship and potentially superior clinical outcomes, which are not currently attainable in our third-party controlled healthcare system.

DPC returns us to a simpler way of obtaining medical care that existed before massive third-party intervention and  complex billing & payment protocols forced us to be dependent on expensive health plans and bureaucratic networks for care.

Direct Primary Care or Direct-Pay Medicine is the really nothing new. Some have called it the “oldest new idea in healthcare”.  Patients and Doctors working directly together without an intruding third party was the norm for a long time in this country; it was also an era where healthcare costs accounted for less than 6% of our nation’s GDP.  This “old fashion” system, now known as Direct Care, served us well for many generations and we didn’t have the rampant runaway medical price inflation that we have now.
