What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care, or DPC, is personalized, comprehensive primary care that puts you first, instead of your insurance company.
What is Jackson Hole Direct Primary Care?
Jackson Hole Direct Primary Care is Jackson's first DPC practice. We offer affordable, accessible, personalized care.
What does my membership fee cover?
Your membership fee covers personalized primary care including well and sick visits, physicals, chronic care management, care coordination, basic office procedures, and extended access to your doctor in person or via telephone, email, or text messaging.
Does Jackson Hole Direct Primary Care accept insurance?
No, happily we do not accept health insurance. Our healthcare model excels because it focuses on the relationship between doctor and patient. We don't believe your insurance company's arbitrary and impersonal decisions have any business in the quality or availability of your primary care. Additionally, because we work for our patients, instead of insurance, we are able to offer a higher level of care, more time, and more convenient access.
Do I still need health insurance?
We strongly recommend that our patients carry health insurance or a health sharing plan to ensure financial help in case hospitalization or specialist referral becomes necessary. Direct Primary Care does not replace and is not health insurance.
If I have Medicare can I join the practice?
Yes. Medicare patients need to sign a one-time waiver agreeing that neither you nor the practice will bill medicare for our services. Medicare will still cover other services outside of our practice including things like medications, labs, and imaging that we prescribe.
Do you share my medical records with my health insurance or pharmaceutical companies?
Because our patients contract directly with the doctor, we do not share your health information with insurance or pharmaceutical companies unless you specifically ask us to do so.
Does Jackson Hole Direct Primary Care see kids?
No. At this time we provide only adult primary care. Our minimum patient age is 14.
