Reduced Healthcare Costs
One of the most significant benefits of DPC for businesses is the potential to reduce healthcare costs. Employers are often the ones responsible for providing healthcare coverage for their employees. With the traditional insurance-based healthcare model, the costs of healthcare coverage can be exorbitant, making it difficult for businesses to provide affordable healthcare to their employees.
DPC, on the other hand, can help businesses save on healthcare costs by eliminating the middlemen and reducing administrative expenses. Since DPC practices do not bill insurance providers, they can charge patients a flat monthly fee. This fee covers all primary care services provided by the DPC practice, including office visits, basic lab tests, and generic medications.
By eliminating insurance providers, DPC practices can keep their costs low and pass on the savings to their patients. This can benefit businesses that offer DPC as an employee benefit by reducing their healthcare costs and freeing up resources that can be invested elsewhere.
