Side Affects Episode 51: The Direct Primary Care Movement

In This Episode

If access, utilization and lifestyle choices are impacting your claims costs, then primary care could be the solution. Dr. Amy Mechley of Integrative Family Care of Cincinnati says her Direct Primary Care model is the answer many self-insured employers need.

For a level monthly fee, patients have access to their primary care physician as needed. When physicians and patients have a one-on-one relationship, it cuts down on emergency costs, it ensure proper medication and compliance, and it can even replace the need for a wellness initiative. Dr. Mechley tells Scott McGohan her medical journey and experiences that led her to the concept of Direct Primary Care, and the results that employers can expect after just one year.
