illustration-societe-satisfactionEn-300x263So the main question we get asked a lot by former and prospective patients regarding  DPC is “why should I pay you when I already pay insurance”?  This is a very good question and I think I have a very good response- what value does insurance give you? Insurance value should be that you pay as little as possible upfront (the premium) in the hope that you never have to use it. That way,  you get to keep more of your hard-earned dollars in your pocket rather than in the hands of an insurer. You then have the money in your bank account if– god forbid- something catastrophic happens. http://news.golddirectcare.com/
