Why Choose an Indiana Direct Primary Care Provider over Traditional?

As traditional healthcare becomes more overloaded in the United States, many people in Indiana are turning to direct primary care as an alternative. 

In the past, these services were often available only to the wealthy, but improvements in the past few years have made them more accessible and affordable for the general public.

What does an Indiana direct primary provider do? For a monthly monthly membership fee comparable to a cell phone bill, patients receive direct, personalized services from their physician, which limits the amount of insurance paperwork needed. 

The Benefits of Direct vs. Traditional Providers in Indiana

There are many benefits to choosing a direct primary provider in Indiana over a traditional doctor. The level of access you can receive through advanced primary services is much more personalized than you’ll get with a traditional provider.

  1. Stronger Relationship with Your Provider

In the traditional healthcare system, most providers see upwards of 20–30 patients per day

This means that you may have long wait times and may not get a full thirty or sixty-minute appointment with your physician before they’re moving on to the next patient. They barely have enough time to go over your medical records and fully understand the health issues you’re facing before they’re sending you on your way again.

A direct primary care model allows Indiana providers to reduce the size of their patient panel so they only see about six to ten patients per day. This means they can allot a full thirty to sixty minutes to each patient. As a result, they get to know their patients better and have time to dig into their medical history and solve root issues, not just symptoms.

  1. More Accessibility to Your Provider

In the traditional healthcare system, you’ll likely have to wait weeks, even months, to see your primary care provider, especially if you’re a new patient.

Then, once you do get an appointment, you’ll wait twenty minutes to see your doctor, only to have an average of ten minutes with them. You leave with unresolved health issues, frustrated with the lack of access to your provider.

There must be a better solution.

With advanced primary care services, you can schedule same-day or next-day appointments with your provider, and you’ll be guaranteed to see them on time for a full thirty or sixty minutes. 

Additionally, many primary providers in Indiana offer virtual appointments and a direct line to them through their phone number so you can contact them with any concerns you might have. This can relieve a lot of stress, knowing you have around-the-clock access to your primary care provider.

  1. Better Preventative Care

Few traditional primary care providers offer extensive preventative care or address the root causes behind your health problems. They simply don’t have the time – the system doesn’t work that way.

Often they simply prescribe a drug to address the symptoms without ever diagnosing the root cause.

A direct primary care provider in Indiana, however, has the time to ask about your medical history and look at your health as a whole, instead of just diagnosing symptoms. They can provide an extensive health plan and help detect and prevent serious illnesses, such as heart disease and diabetes.

This can save you a lot of money down the road.

How is Verve’s Model Different from Traditional Healthcare?

You might not be used to accessing healthcare through a DPC (direct primary care) membership model. But it makes a lot of sense for your budget and your schedule. 

With a direct primary care membership you have unlimited same/next day appointments. WIth traditional primary care, you’ll have co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles with each visit. They’re also financially incentivized to do less per visit and bring you back for additional visits.

But with a direct primary care membership, you’re getting your primary, immediate, and even some traditional specialist care addressed. Our providers have time to address root causes and reduce costly specialist referrals. When you need a specialist, we’ll refer you to the highest quality/value providers.

You deserve to work with a medical provider who understands your struggles, develops a personalized care plan that works for you, and spends quality time with you.

Our heart at Verve is to make that not only a possibility, but a reality for you and your family.
