Physician acceptance of direct primary care (DPC), a practice model that does not accept health insurance and bills members a monthly membership fee, is on the rise according to the 2016 Great American Physician (GAP) Survey. While only 5 percent of responding physicians said they were currently in a DPC practice, 62 percent said they would consider switching to the model if the circumstances were favorable, which is a 44 percent increase over the 2015 GAP survey.
