Why is Direct Primary Care Important to Employers?

In 2022, the total average employer cost, including premiums, rose to an estimated $15,013 per employee, up from $13,360 in 2021.

Direct Primary Care is just a payment model – nothing else. It is transparent membership-based healthcare and not a replacement for health insurance (although it can be offered as a stand-alone service). At Exemplar Care, we utilize the Direct Primary Care model to maximize quality care and minimize employer and employee costs.   

Improve Quality of Care

  • Personalized individual time with a primary care provider
  • Same or next-day appointments
  • Focused treatment for chronic care conditions
  • Provide preventative care -navigator, advocate and coach

Reduce Overall Cost of Care

  • Flat monthly fee, no copays, or deductibles
  • Inclusion of labs and imaging services performed in clinic
  • Reduces unnecessary hospital / ER/specialists costs
  • Provide referrals to specialists that deliver improved value

Businesses that would benefit from Direct Primary Care through Exemplar Care include:

  • Businesses with self-funded health insurance
    • DPC partners well with High Deductible Health Plans (HDHPs)
  • Businesses that see their insurance premiums increase every year.
  • Employers concerned about health benefits with regard to recruitment, retention, and workplace wellness.
  • Employers with part-time and contract workers who may not qualify for traditional health insurance.
