  • WHAT IS DIRECT PRIMARY CARE (DPC)?

    ⎈ No rushed visits ⎈ Improved availability ⎈ Same/next day appointments ⎈ Direct access to provider via text/email ⎈ Affordable memberships ⎈ Family discounts ⎈ No long-term commitments ⎈ Transparent pricing & discounts ⎈

    Direct Primary Care is a type of medical care that eliminates most of the barriers found in the "fee-for-service" insurance-based models of care. By bypassing the insurance industry's often unnecessary and frequently dangerous limitations (prior authorizations, requirements to fail medications, deciding not to pay for labs or images obtained), DPC can get you to a diagnosis and a treatment plan faster, with more time to make sure your questions get answered. It's also important to note that if you do happen to carry insurance, that you can always use your insurance for any orders outside of the clinic that forego the discounts available.
     
    Rather than limited access to your provider, we believe in much more efficient methods of patient-provider contact, such as texting or emailing your provider - directly - when you have questions that you need answered either quickly, or in a day or two; not weeks later.
     
    We also believe in price transparency. When you use the discounts we have available, you not only save where it's convenient for you to save - you also know exactly the cost of your labs, images, medications, equipment, etc. Below are a few examples of ways we can save you money in medical care:

    Prescriptions

    At Virtue Medical, we carry common prescriptions for blood pressure control, diabetes, infections, arthritis, and much more in our on-site pharmacy. We often keep prices lower than GoodRx©.

    If you're paying too much for your medications, we want to help you find a solution. Whether it's through our pharmacy or yours, we'll work with you to find the best price.

    Imaging

    Local well-known imaging centers provide substantial discounts on imaging. While you can always use your insurance carrier to obtain imaging, there's a very good chance we can beat your costs. Virtue Medical is teamed up with .

    Whether you need an X-ray, Ultrasound, CT scan, MRI, Mammogram, Bone Density Study, or a Cardioscan/Calcium Score, we can give you a price before you get your imaging completed!

    Blood tests/labs

    Virtue Medical works with LabCorp to provide extremely low-cost labs. Most labs cost around $5, and a routine physical currently costs around $25.

    Just as with prescriptions and imaging, we can always provide you with upfront costs to help you decide how to go about blood/urine testing!

    What's the cost of a membership?

    One-time per family registration of $35. Monthly membership rates depend on age, and are as follows:

    Ages 0-19: $10 if a parent is also a member, otherwise $30

    Ages 20-39: $60, Ages 40-64: $90, and Ages 65+: $120.

    Registration fee is $35 per family, 10% off for families of 4 or more, and cancellation is free.

    No extra cost per visit as a member. Families of 4 or more receive a 10% discount off of family total.
