We’re a direct primary care practice. Ultimately, that means we get to spend more time with you, whenever you need it, without having to jump through the hoops of a traditional medical practice. We love it, our current patients love it, and we think you will too.
We don’t accept insurance. But don’t let that scare you, because most of our patients actually save money as Skyline Direct Care, M.D. members. We can help you find the combination of healthcare, and health insurance that saves you money and results in better quality service. We even have someone in-house specifically for that!
Under the traditional system, most medical practices need a large staff to ensure that they get reimbursed by health insurers. This results in much higher overhead, which eats up to 60 percent of a typical practice’s revenue and forces doctors to see more patients in order to cover costs. Without the insurance companies mandating what the doctors must do, the doctors treat patients as they deem fit. The Direct Primary Care model allows doctors to see fewer patients each day which frees the doctors to spend more time with each patient.
Each of the Skyline Direct Care providers has around 700 patients. If that seems like a lot, compare it to the typical 2,300 or so of a traditional primary care physician. Because we limit the number of patients we see, that opens up our schedule to be available when you need us – no matter what time of the day, or part of the week. When you pay directly and cut out insurance you get back to the heart of the physician-patient relationship.
