FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care, or DPC, is an alternative payment and practice model for primary care services. This service is a great fit for those without insurance or high deductible plans. You pay a monthly membership fee which gives you access to great primary healthcare services. No hoops to jump. No hidden fees!
Will I benefit from direct primary care if I don’t require frequent medical attention?
Absolutely! One of the things we emphasize is wellness and prevention. You do not have to be sick to see your provider but, it is important that you stay on top of your health so that you minimize your risks. At YNC we can work with you to customize your needs. Together we can help you learn more about caring for yourself and maintain a healthy lifestyle. And of course, we’re there for you if you get sick.
So how much does membership cost?
Please see our prices here. We charge a flat monthly fee for unlimited monthly visits and access to your provider via text message and email.
What does the membership fee cover?

This includes the following: annual wellness exams, chronic disease management visits, follow-up visits, and treatment of acute illness or minor injuries, with minimal wait times in the office.
