What is Direct Care?
Direct care is an innovative healthcare model that prioritizes your essential healthcare needs in ways that traditional healthcare does not. Direct care helps to restore the quality of the doctor-patient relationship by putting you first. This model allows for direct contact with your physician via text, email, and video calls. Members also benefit from longer office visits with minimum wait times.

What is Direct Care?
Direct care is an innovative healthcare model that prioritizes your essential healthcare needs in ways that traditional healthcare does not. Direct care puts you — the patient — first and restores the quality of the patient-doctor relationship. Direct care physicians make time to see patients. They don’t rush through appointments, and they proactively create treatment plans.
For a low monthly fee, patients get unlimited office visits that don’t require copays. You can access your doctor by phone, text, email, or video chat. Scheduling appointments is easy and convenient.
