What is Direct Primary Care?

Direct Primary Care  (DPC) is a modern version of the old times strong patient- physician relationship.  Like it used to be, the doctor acts in the best interest of the patient without the intervention of insurance.  The majority of healthcare occurs in the office of the primary care physician, and it is actually inexpensive.   We believe it should be that way.  The inflated costs associated with insurances have made care inaccessible and sometimes unaffordable for so many patients.  

We make your health our first priority.  We focus in a small amount of patients, 400 to 600, versus the traditional model of 3500 or more in a practice.  That allows for much more personalized care and convenience. 

Our Direct Primary Care Practice, like most of the practices of this type, offers care without additional copayments, no hidden fees, and a variety of procedures at no additional cost. Our patients pay at a low monthly fee to have easy access to your personal physician. Phone calls, texts, emails, telecommunication, and office visits are all included in our membership.  Without having to worry about out of pocket expenses such as copayments, deductibles and coinsurances, you don’t have to put on hold the care you need, when you need it.

Direct primary care is growing in popularity! In 2012, an estimated 4,500 doctors across the United States offered various forms of “direct” care services to their patients. That number has increased to more than 5,500 in 2013 and is expected to continue a strong upward trend.

Dr. Alberto Rengifo is a direct primary care provider and the first to offer direct primary care in Weston and the surrounding areas of Broward County.

FOR BUSINESSES

For Most employers the rising cost of Health Insurance have become a financial burden resulting on passing more costs on to the employee or dropping coverage entirely. ALLIANCE DPC allows small businesses to present their employees affordable access to high quality primary care and ancillary services without breaking the bank.

By combining the ALLIANCE DPC plan with a High deductible Health Plan (Catastrophic coverage) purchased through your insurance broker, employers can see significant savings in the cost of providing health insurance.
