Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a simple way of practicing medicine without third party interference. With DPC, the physician focuses all efforts and energy on the patient and the patient pays the physician directly for this type of special care. The focus is on you, not the computer screen or nonsensical insurance rules. DPC practices advocate for price transparency and provide heightened confidentiality.
Most Americans have been brainwashed to believe that health insurance is the vehicle for quality primary medical care. They continue to latch onto that hope while growing more frustrated with the broken system. A DPC practice like IHA provides a generous host of services and a human element you won't find from a "provider" through your insurance plan. When you become an IHA patient, you'll no longer complain about the care you wish you had.
DPC practices are not health insurance. The purpose of health insurance is to protect you financially from emergencies, hospitalization, or expensive tests and specialty care. That being said, one does not need health insurance to join a DPC practice, however having at least a catastrophic plan is strongly advised.
For years, Dr. Sacchetti has been helping patients and businesses navigate the insurance marketplace, steering them toward more affordable coverage options best complemented with DPC.
IHA, like all DPC practices, does not take insurance as a form of payment. Patients can pay for their program in a variety of other ways including the use of a Health Savings Account (HSA).
It's important to understand that you do not give up any of your health insurance rights or benefits by joining IHA and having Dr. Sacchetti as your physician. Dr. Sacchetti can still order tests and refer to specialists as an out-of-network provider.
