Medicare and Medicaid are the two largest government-run health insurance programs in the United States, and arguably the world.

And without major reforms, these entitlements threaten to bankrupt taxpayers and hang patients out to dry.
What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct primary care is a direct patient-to-provider relationship that delivers quality healthcare at an affordable price. Under a direct primary care contract, patients pay their physicians a flat, monthly fee. And in exchange, their physicians provides a range of primary care services. These services include preventive care, urgent care, chronic disease management, and wellness support.
