Benefits & Pricing
Destinations Direct Primary Care is a new full-service Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice specializing in the unique health care needs of adults and seniors. DPC is an alternative to fee-for-service insurance billing that seeks to reestablish the traditionally strong doctor-patient relationship and healthy lifestyle choices that promote health, happiness and, longevity.
We charge an affordable monthly subscription that covers all or most of your primary care needs including clinical, laboratory, coordinated care and consultation referral services and, comprehensive management of acute and chronic disease.
As a patient of Destinations Direct Primary Care, Dr. Neely will become your personal physician. Our DPC model allows him to provide high-quality thoughtful medical attention in a comfortable and private environment. You will have direct access to Dr. Neely any time of day and, same-day appointments are often available.
Have you ever wondered how your doctor can successfully manage complex problems in such a short visit? So do we. The management of chronic disease is complex so, you can expect to spend 30 – 60 minutes with Dr. Neely at each appointment. Lastly, you will receive prompt follow-up, call-backs and medication refills as well as laboratory and medical imaging at heavily discounted rates.
Pricing - For Individuals and Households
(up to 5 adult members)
Destinations Direct Primary Care will make your primary care more affordable, accessible, and personal! We accept all patients including those with and without insurance and Medicare. However, our DPC practice is best suited for those with high-deductible health insurance plans as these patients already end up paying twice. Each visit results in a copay and clinic visit charge on top of telehealth and clinic procedures which are usually charged separately. Urgent care and emergency room visits are charged at substantially higher rates.
A membership with Destinations Direct Primary Care and a high-deductible health plan will actually save you money by allowing you to maintain affordable insurance coverage for major medical problems while ensuring access to primary care for your routine medical needs.
Direct Primary Care and the California Health Mandate
The California health mandate requires those without insurance to pay an annual penalty of at least $750 per adult and $375 per dependent child under eighteen. A family of four would have to pay at least $2,250. Unfortunately, direct primary care (DPC) does not satisfy this mandate because it is considered a medical service rather than an insurance plan. However, new legislation called the Primary Care Enhancement Act may soon make DPC a part of an affordable way to avoid this punitive tax. This legislation will allow patients with a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) to use their Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for a DPC membership.
An HSA is a dedicated account funded with pretax dollars (up to $3,600 per individual or $7,200 per family as of 2021) intended to offset the high deductible and can be withdrawn tax free when used for qualified medical expenses. My monthly HDHP premium as a healthy forty-one-year-old would be $404.81. However, when combined with a Destinations Direct Primary Care membership this jumps to $490 per month or $5,880 per year. This may actually be an excellent option for patients that require regular primary care visits or mor advanced services such as specialist care or hospitalization.
