Is DPC Right For You?
Why Direct Patient Care?
  • Have you ever wished that you had a personal physician who could help you coordinate your care and make sure things didn't slip through the cracks? 

  • Do you worry that you will not be able to stay in your home as you get older because you just don't have the medical support you need? 

  • Have you ever gone to the emergency room and gotten stuck with a big bill for a simple treatment that you know could have easily been done in the office or over the phone?

  • Have you been turned away by your primary care provider because their schedule is full for the day? 

  • Are you frustrated that you can’t access your primary care provider when you need them?


 Then DPC is right for you!


If you have health insurance:
  • It is probable that with health insurance you pay several thousands of dollars out of your pocket every year for co-pays and deductibles.

  • With RMFP of Leadville’s Direct Patient Care practice, you pay about $100 per month or $1,200 per year. 

  • If you get most of your care in a primary care provider's office, your potential savings is thousands of dollars per year. 

  • You may be able to reduce the cost of your current insurance plan once you have primary care available anytime and as often as you need it with Dr. Lisa Zwerdlinger.

If you don’t have health insurance:
  • Many people are in the healthcare gap where they make too much money to qualify for Medicaid and too little to afford health insurance.

  • Direct Patient Care breaks down the barrier to primary care for the uninsured.

  • If you can pay on average $100 per month or $1200 per year, you can have excellent primary care at an affordable price.

        RMFP of Leadville also offers family pricing.


Here's what patients across the United States have to say about DPC.

“As a patient, I really appreciate how my Direct Care practice handles billing. I know exactly what I’m being charged for, and how much. Not only that, but if I have any questions on my bill I can email, text, or call my doc and get a near immediate response. That’s incredible when you consider all the hours, I’ve spent on hold with billing departments over the years!”

“My doctor told me about the car insurance analogy – he said medical insurance should be treated like car insurance; pay directly for things like checkups, a broken arm, and the like, and save insurance for the big-ticket items. Just like you pay for gas and oil changes directly and save insurance for accidents and major repairs! Makes perfect sense.”

“I knew I’d enjoy not having to deal with insurance, but I never imagined it would be this nice. Making payments directly to my Direct Care clinic is hassle-free. I pay only for what I need when I need it. I have more control over my family’s medical expenses, and I know my family’s in good hands. It doesn’t get much better than this.”

“If medical billing is this easy on me and my family, I hope it’s this easy on the docs, too! I get an email each month telling me what my invoice total is. Then I get another email to confirm my payment has gone through. I can care for my family without giving the hassle of making a payment a second thought.”
