Because in RI doctors are able to wholesale order medications for their patients when clinically appropriate, we can cut out the pharmacy/insurance middle men and offer direct pricing to our patients at cost. This reflects a savings to patients, especially on chronic medications, that is not found in the typical primary care practice.
These are just examples but we are always happy to help interested patients compare pricing to see if the addition of medication-cost-savings may tip the scale in favor of a DPC membership. Check us out at www.directdoctors.org for more info!
