I've had a lot of questions lately about Direct Fee Primary Care-where it is available, how much does it cost and what exactly it means.

Direct Fee Primary Care is becoming more widely available throughout the US, though is most popular in the Seattle area, including Qliance Primary Care Specialists. Qliance is a direct fee practice which allows patients unlimited access to a primary care physician for a surprisingly low affordable monthly fee. There are other options for direct fee practices, but Qliance is the most afforable by far; and the doctors on their staff are truly amazing. Not only does this model allow doctors to spend more time with their patients, but it allows for more comprehensive care because patients are not coming back constantly to address the same health issues!

One challenge with this type of model is that these types of practices do not bill insurance because they operate outside the insurance system. However by incorporating a high deductible insurance plan with a plan like that of Qliance, people cannot only save on health insurance, but can get better, more comprehensive care through one physician. These types of practices are streching people's out-of-pocket dollar by including many clinic services in their monthly fees. Qliance for example, includes annual exams, x-rays, stitches/sutures, castings and even basic lab work in their monthly fee-all things that one would normally pay for in addition to the standard co-pay.

This sure sounded too good to be true. I wonder how Direct Fee Primary Care can give patients unlimited access to a primary care physician for a surprisingly low affordable monthly fee without government subsidy, and without reimbursement from the insurance system. Thank you for sharing with us.
