How Direct Primary Care is the new “Netflix of Healthcare”
But that’s why Netflix works; that’s why they completely dominated the market faster than you can say “Blockbuster.” Yeah, remember Blockbuster? Me either.
Netflix would never make us pay an outrageous fee per movie, force us to stand under beating fluorescent lights to make our selection, or only give us 3-5 business days to enjoy it thoroughly.
Sure, Blockbuster served its purpose well for many years, but now, it’s just outdated and overshadowed by the ease and convenience of Netflix.
Healthcare is kinda like that. I know, I know, we don’t like thinking about that topic, but consider this:
- Traditional healthcare is Blockbuster.
- And Direct Primary Care is Netflix.
If we refuse to put up with the anti-21st-century shenanigans from our movie and music providers, then why are we still accepting it from our health providers?
Just like Netflix, Direct Primary Care only charges one monthly fee and gives you virtual access to your doctor 24/7 (text, call, video chat, face-to-face, whatever your thing is).
Not only does it save a whole lot of time and money, but DPC members are also shown to be healthier than those who are operating under a traditional insurance model.
DPC members have proven to be 65% less likely to visit an emergency room and 35% less likely to require a hospital stay. Just saying.
Alright, alright, so you probably have the question by now—what happens if I unexpectedly have to go to the hospital or have a major surgery?
Either way, this revolutionary model is boldly changing the game just like Netflix did. But this time, your health is on the line.
