How Is Mountain States Different?

TAKE A DEEP DIVE

Direct Care is a model of healthcare in which the patient pays the physician directly for access to their services. Usually this includes inexpensive monthly fee in exchange for appointments & access to affordable labwork/imaging and medications.

To better understand how Direct Care works, it is easiest to examine how it compares to the traditional or typical healthcare model.

While the pros of direct care are plenty, we do recommend that you maintain health insurance that covers hospitalization or surgery should the need arise. High deductible, cost sharing planes are an affordable option.
