What is Direct Primary Care (DPC)?
Direct Primary Care is a membership program that provides unlimited direct access to your health care provider for a low monthly fee. DPC makes health care accessible, affordable and convenient. Insurance is not billed, and there are no co-pays for visits.
Is DPC the same as concierge medicine?
No, they are different. With concierge medicine, your insurance company is billed, and you pay co-pays for office visits, PLUS you pay a monthly membership fee. With DPC, your insurance is not billed for your primary care visits, and there are no co-pays for visits to the primary care office. You only pay the membership fee.
What services do you offer?
Do you provide vaccinations?
No we do not offer vaccinations. We will discuss cost-effective vaccination options with you at your appointment
Do you offer home visits?
Yes, home visits are an option for an additional fee. See list of services
Is DPC the same as health insurance?
No, Direct Primary Care is not health insurance. Your DPC membership with Vibrance will cover most of your primary care needs. We encourage our patients to carry some form of health insurance, such as a high-deductible, major medical plan or a plan with a health savings account, in case you’re hospitalized or need a specialist. Talk to your insurance provider about an insurance plan that will work best for you.
Do I have to have a membership to make an appointment?
Yes, a membership is needed for direct access to care and to provide the best quality of care.
Are you a walk-in clinic?
No, we are not a walk-in or urgent-care clinic. If you are a member with an urgent need, we offer same-day or next-day appointments
Should I join if I don’t go to the doctor very often?
Yes, a membership can help keep you healthy. We focus on preventive and proactive care to help you remain healthy; but, if you should happen to get sick, we provide direct and convenient access to care to put you back on the path to health — all for one low monthly fee.
I already have health insurance, why should I pay for DPC also?
Direct primary care membership is an upfront investment with many downstream benefits. Care is more accessible with online scheduling, direct messaging, texting and video/telehealth appointments when appropriate. We provide preventive care to keep you healthy, and we manage chronic and urgent care issues. Pricing is transparent with no co-pays, and our partnerships make imaging tests less expensive. Combined, these services can save individuals and families hundreds to thousands of dollars. For examples, sutures provided at Vibrance could save you a trip to the emergency room, thereby saving you emergency room charges and ultimately saving you thousands of dollars.
Does it matter what health insurance I have?
No, since DPC is not health insurance, you can combine your membership with any health insurance plan.
