Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a new name for an old idea.
Direct Primary Care is taking off across the country but new to Montana. The idea is to be able to receive timely primary care and pay the provider directly for that care.
You will have a one-on-one relationship with your doctor. Using a DPC doctor for your primary care helps to keep the “maintenance and small problems” in house. You can then reserve your insurance for the ” big ticket items” such as x-rays, CT/MRI/ultrasound (imaging), specialty care and hospitalizations.
DPC allows a provider to be their own boss by decreasing time wasted on documentation, coding and billing. In turn, Dr. Tabor-Manaker can continue doing what she does best – taking more time for you and your health concerns.
As a member of Glacier DPC, Dr. Tabor-Manaker will strive to see you within 24 hours when possible and you will have access directly to your provider via phone, texting or e-mail. Your physician answering their own office phone? – Yes, just like the good old days. This is Direct Primary Care.
