Dr. Neuhofel, family physician and owner of NeuCare Family Medicine is ready to set the record straight. He took the time to tackle a few of the most widely spread rumors, including affordability and Dr. shortage.
Myth #1: DPC is Too Expensive
- Many DPC clinics were founded to help those who were struggling to afford care through traditional healthcare.
- “Concierge” doesn’t mean “high priced.” Rather, most DPC clinics charge on the lower end of the retainer spectrum, landing somewhere in the $30-50/month range.
- Savings are passed back to the patient in more ways than one: “discounts on labs, diagnostic testing, medications, procedures and more.”
“Just last week, I was able to provide nine doses of sumatriptan to a new patient for $8.12. She had previously been paying more than $100 per month through her insurance for the same amount of the drug.”
