The Vintage Direct Primary Care Difference
One of the biggest (and most important) differences you’ll find between our Direct Primary Care practice and other traditional family practices is the number of patients we see.
In order for doctors to pay background employees to deal with the rules and regulations of government and insurance companies, most family doctors need to have 2000-3000 patients in their practice in order to see the 20-30 patients per day needed to cover the costs of those billers, coders and "compliance experts".
Direct Primary Care, with simple automatic monthly billing (like you might pay your cable or cell phone bill) allows a clinic to run with just a doctor and a nurse. Eliminating the extra insurance-related costs, we can spend 90-95% of our time taking care of 500-600 patients.
As a member of Vintage Direct Primary Care you’ll have access to the following:
Greatly discounted prices for labs, medications and, for those without insurance, radiology procedures as well
We believe that you deserve great value by being a part of our clinic so we've negotiated steeply discounted lab test prices with a major national laboratory. We pass those discounted costs on to you with no markup or profit on our part. You'll know that when we order a test for you, we are doing it solely because we believe it's necessary for your care.
We also can obtain the most commonly prescribed generic medications directly from a wholesaler and pass those prices on to you. We add a small fee to cover the costs of the medicine bottles and labels but otherwise make no profit on providing these medications to you. Our goal is to lower your overall health care costs.
We have negotiated substantially reduced prices for CAT scans, MRIs and other expensive procedures with a local radiologist for our patients who do not have insurance.
