Is DPC the same as Concierge Medicine?

No. Concierge medicine collects money by billing insurance companies. In addition to this, concierge medicine charges a yearly concierge fee, which can be anywhere from $5000 to as much as $20,000 per year! Even though concierge medicine and DPC physicians have smaller patient panel sizes, DPC is an affordable alternative to concierge medicine. The monthly membership fees associated with DPC include ALL in-person and virtual visits. In this way, DPC eliminates the hassles of insurance companies and puts the focus back on the doctor-patient relationship.
