Direct Primary Care Q & A

What is direct primary care?

Direct primary care is an emerging, forward-thinking alternative to more costly payment models of primary care. It is gaining popularity amongst patients, physicians, employers, and policymakers nationwide.

By design, direct primary care offers high-quality, thorough primary care services without barriers to accessing your health care provider. It promotes a longstanding, trusted relationship between you and your physician at affordable, predictable costs.

What are the benefits of direct primary care?

With direct primary care, your Onyx Direct Care doctor puts your health, questions, needs, and schedule first. You have a voice in your medical care, and you and your physician don’t have the constraints of insurance company requirements or restrictive insurance plans. Benefits include:

  • Cost and time savings
  • A personal relationship with your doctor
  • More time spent with your doctor during appointments
  • Comprehensive, personalized health care
  • Quality primary care services
  • Doctors see fewer patients
  • No time spent in waiting rooms
  • No insurance company premiums
  • Same-day or next-day appointments available for urgent care needs
  • Transparent medical costs

Direct primary care is how health care used to be, and it’s the way it should be. You only pay for the services you receive with a monthly premium and get discounts on labs, medicines, and imaging procedures.

What should I expect during my appointment?

Onyx Direct Care specializes in family medicine and sports medicine for patients of all ages. When you arrive at a primary care appointment at Onyx Direct Care, your provider reviews your medical history and symptoms and completes a comprehensive physical exam. Telemedicine appointments are available if you need to see a doctor but live too far away, don’t have reliable transportation, can’t find childcare, or don’t have time to drive to the office.

After a physical exam, your doctor may recommend blood or imaging tests to confirm or rule out certain medical conditions. They offer natural, holistic treatments like osteopathic manipulative therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, natural skin care, and referrals for physical therapy or occupational therapy whenever possible.

Don’t overpay insurance companies or be restricted by their rules and regulations. Schedule an appointment with Onyx Direct Care over the phone or online to learn more about the benefits of direct primary care.
