Lisa Larkin, MD & Associates offers patients Direct Primary Care (DPC)—an emerging model in healthcare that focuses on affordability, accessibility and personalization. By eliminating the obstacle of health insurance and creating a direct financial relationship between patient and provider, we are able to offer more affordable care and greater accessibility for patients. Direct Primary Care Cincinnati members pay a reasonable monthly fee (or one-time annual fee).
NOTE – During these uncertain times due to the COVID-19 crisis, we want to accommodate new patients as best we can. We believe the best care requires an ongoing relationship between patient and clinician. However, in order to accommodate new patients during this health crisis, we are offering Direct Primary Care ‘trial’ membership. This means:
- We can establish you as a patient and conduct your initial visit via telehealth, if that is appropriate.
- Telehealth can mean a phone call or a video call (e.g., Skype or Facetime). During this crisis, regulations have been relaxed and providers who typically could not use those platforms (due to HIPAA requirements) may do so now.
- While we typically require a minimum six-month contract, during this COVID-19 crisis, we will reduce that commitment to three months, although we hope that you’ll continue your care with us ongoing.
- Your initial telehealth visit is $85 – the same as an in-office initial visit. Follow-up visits (in person or via telehealth) are $45 per visit.
