Direct Primary Care (DPC)

Direct Primary Care in Lebanon, TN

What is Direct Primary Care (DPC)? 

Becoming increasingly more popular in the healthcare industry, DPC is a subscription-based model for delivering primary care to patients.

Digging deeper, some common questions are — what exactly is direct primary care, how does direct primary care work, what are the benefits, and is it right for me and my family?

Direct primary care is a creative model of primary care that gives providers alternatives to traditional fee-for-service insurance billing. Reducing the overhead for third-party insurance allows for lower fees and more time spent with fewer patients — for the same cost.

Key Features of Direct Primary Care — 

Patient-Centered quality care



Timely, convenient care

Increased preventative care

Extended appointments times if needed 

Unique pay structure – affordable subscription based monthly fee 

Plus, with the DPC model, providers are able to focus more on patient care and patient relationships. This allows for direct communication with provider 24/7 via a direct phone number available to text or call. 

Now, let’s dive into the details at Restoration  — How Does Direct Primary Care Work at Restoration?

Direct primary care patients are charged a retainer fee. This fee is a monthly or discounted, annual fee and is used to cover services. We do suggest patients have supplemental insurance for emergency situations such as a low monthly, high deductible plan, on top of the DPC membership. In addition, DPC patients can receive lower rates for diagnostic tests, medications, and referrals.
