What is DPC?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative alternative payment model for primary care.
DPC providers are focused on service, patient choice, advocacy, stewardship and elimination of fee-for service medicine.
The hallmark of DPC is adequate time spent between patient and physician working towards a lasting relationship based on trust.
DPC eliminates undesired fee-for-service (FFS) incentives in primary care.
These incentives distort healthcare decision-making by rewarding volume over value. This undermines the trust that supports the patient-provider relationship and rewards expensive and inappropriate testing, referral, and treatment. DPC replaces FFS with a simple flat monthly fee that covers comprehensive primary care services.
At Ashewell, we are committed patient advocates.
While we are uniquely trained to diagnose and treat complex disease in adults, the time we gain as DPC providers allows us to focus on prevention of disease, and support the health and wellbeing of our patients. We are focused on bringing more value to the primary care experience without contributing to the financial harm of our patients. Our care is affordable to all, and providing wholesale medications, labs and medical imaging, ensures our patients will receive the care they need regardless of insurance.
Ashewell provides high quality of care by focusing on a smaller number of patients.
We ensure seamless communication, access, and affordability. Our Internists have trained at some of the most prestigious programs in the nation, and have over 25 years of combined experience. Our staff is invested in the care provided because our patients are like family.
