Owners of a Direct Care practice are more likely to experience higher job satisfaction than the insurance-based model and it’s no wonder why. Direct Care is independent of insurance, patients pay the doctor directly for their expertise. The doctor has full autonomy in how they care for patients and how they are paid, rather than someone without a medical degree. We’ve chosen this path for the love of medicine. Come listen in to hear how I managed to pivot my private practice from insurance-based to Direct Care right in the middle of the pandemic. I share all the lessons I learned along the way and if you stick around long enough, you might start to believe you too can have a fulfilling Direct Care Podiatry practice too.
