Direct Primary Care (DPC)

One of our clinic goals has been to offer Direct Primary Care (DPC) services, also known as a retainer medical practice.  In this service model, the patient pays a monthly fee to access primary care services at PRFM.  Meanwhile, PRFM is empowered to serve patients according to our mission while having the financial control and stability needed to maintain a sustainable business model that delivers high-quality health care to our community. 

** DPC does not cover any services outside of Phoenix Rising** 

 

The fee will be due immediately when enrolling in the DPC program and the first of the month thereafter or annually depending on the individual preference. The contract will automatically renew each year unless PRFM is given 30 days’ notice to terminate the agreement. If an individual is delinquent on payment they will have 90 days to catch up on their account before they are brought to collections. If they refuse to establish a plan to bring their account up to date they will receive a 30 days’ notice that they will be discharged from the practice.

Reasons for being discharged from the practice:

Patients who are verbally or physically abusive to provider or staff

Patients who are non-compliant with care – missing appointments and/or recommended testing.

Patients who do not pay for their care

Patients who are “provider” shopping to only receive medications such as opioids or benzodiazepines.

DISCLOSURES:

Phoenix Rising Family Medicine (PRFM) is not insurance.

PRFM provides only the limited scope of primary care services specified in the retainer medical agreement listed in Appendix A.

Patients can cancel this agreement with written notice sent to PRFM.  PRFM will then reimburse the patient for any unused portion of fees. 

The Department Of Consumer and Business Services issued a certification to this practice.  You can contact advocates at the Department of Consumer and Business Services at:
