What is a Direct Primary Care (DPC) Membership?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A MEMBER OF FULCRUM FAMILY HEALTH DPC?

Why become a member of our DPC? Direct primary care is a relatively new concept in medicine. This new way of delivering healthcare is actually based on traditional relationships and community based care. Fulcrum Family Health is a family medicine practice founded by Dr. Lisa Lucas. Our goal is to deliver affordable, accessible healthcare. We aim to get to know our patients and their families and form a dependable, longstanding relationship. When you become a member of Fulcrum Family Health, your health is our primary concern. This is different than in a traditional fee for service model that runs within the insurance-based system where doctors are incentivized to see as many patients as possible. Insurance reimbursement doesn't prioritize talking and relationship building. In our experience, we see our patients find true health when we have the time to educate and work through barriers to care. We work outside the insurance system allowing us to offer 30-60 minute appointments in person or via phone, email, text or video.

COMMITTED TO A LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DOCTOR AND PATIENT

Fulcrum Family Health truly shines as a membership based model. Our goal is to educate our community on the benefits of having their own physician. A doctor that knows you and understands you is a rarity in a healthcare system that is so depersonalized. We understand that health concerns happen at all hours. Dr. Lucas is a member of your community. She is a mom of three who works hard to find balance in life and understands the demands of daily life. We offer a physician who is responsive to calls, texts, and emails throughout the day and who cares about you as an individual and not as another number.Our philosophy is based on the accessibility of health to all. We strive to remove financial and social barriers to medicine and provide individualized, seamless care to all of our members.
