Fellow Direct Primary Care physician and leader in the field, Samir Qamar, recently blogged about the ways in which businesses can benefit from an arrangement between their employees and a DPC practice (like his MedLion practices across the country or our Direct Doctors practice here in RI).
His quick points are that a DPC practice membership combined with a High Deductible Health Insurance Plan offered through an employer can be a great option for employees (think happier, healthier employees who miss work less and have access to their affordable primary care doctor more) and employers (think cost savings from less ER and Urgent Care visits).
