Direct Primary Care: Hopefully, the future of basic healthcare

There’s a trend that’s sweeping the nation. No, it’s not Pokemon Go… that’s old news. The trend is actually an old one: Direct Primary Care. It’s how healthcare was handled in the past when doctors still made house calls and it’s quickly becoming a viable way for tens of thousands of people to receive their basic healthcare needs.

As the rules involving medical records, billing codes, and prior authorizations have gotten more complex, physicians find they can’t survive without joining large health care networks. And they’re becoming increasingly demoralized.
