Growing movement of doctors

A small but growing movement of doctors that don’t accept insurance and charge a monthly fee could be a model for big employers like Amazon and JPMorgan

  • Direct primary care is a small but fast-growing movement of doctors who don’t accept insurance and instead charge a monthly membership fee.

  • And it could be a model employers could tap into as a way of lowering costs.
