How Direct Primary Care clinics keep overhead down & therefore keep primary care costs down for YOU the patient
Many big box medical clinics have high overhead due to their high number of salaried & contracted full-time & part-time administrators. Take a look at the appalling graph below on the growth of administrators vs. physicians over 40 years. See how the growth of administrators is associated with huge increases in healthcare spending and increased cost to you the patient. Direct Primary Care (DPC) clinics are the opposite of big box medical clinics. DPC clinics keep patient costs down by limiting high overhead and the number of administrators. Most Direct Primary Care (DPC) clinics only have one administrator and they pass the cost savings to their patients.

I never knew that Direct Primary Care clinics could keep patient costs down by limiting high overhead! My husband and I are trying to find good healthcare plans so we can be sure our children have access to medical professionals when they need it. We're in a financially difficult spot right now, so we're trying to find great clinics at lower costs. Hopefully we can find a great Direct Primary Care clinic in our area.

I want to make sure that I get the right doctor for me. It makes sense that I would want to find one that takes costs into consideration. That way, I can ensure that I don't need to spend too much.
