DPC By The Numbers


Direct Primary Care (DPC) by the Numbers


In traditional models, doctors spend nearly two hours on insurance and other documentation for every hour they see patients. To remove this obstacle to providing high-quality patient care, DPC physicians do not accept insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid. However, maintaining health insurance is important in the event of emergency or unexpected medical needs.

Less paperwork means we have a lot more time to spend caring for you.




On average, DPC physicians spend 140 minutes with each patient annually – not including time spent communicating through email, video chats, and telephone calls. That compares to just 33 minutes in traditional primary care practices.

Longer appointments = better health, lower overall cost.




Your Exemplar Care physician cares for 75 percent fewer patients than the average physician in traditional practices.
