Welcome to Hearthside Family Health LLC
Hearthside Family Health is a nurse practitioner owned subscription model practice, also known as Direct Primary Care (DPC). The DPC model is created to emphasize the power of the relationship between "provider" and "patient". What this means is that the provider and patient have open communication and access. Fees are low as payment is made directly from the patient to the provider, there is NO billing to the insurance company. This is a monthly subscription fee for primary care and not insurance. In case of emergency you will need to call 911.
We are now enrolling new patients - if you are interested in learning more, send us a message through the contact form at the bottom of this page or feel free to call.

What is Direct Primary Care (DPC)?
Direct primary care is a membership based health care delivery model that allows you and your primary care provider (PCP) to work collaboratively in creating your individualized care. The providers are working directly for the patient, thus realigning the focus of care to the patient instead of insurance requirements or federal regulations. The monthly membership includes all office visits without additional co-pays, point of care testing, telehealth care, and encrypting messaging. Communication is offered thru email, text, phone and video conference. Members have their primary care providers cell phone number for direct contact.
Providers in this practice are considered out of network for insurance plans. Some plans may require you to have an insurance contracted PCP on your team as well. You can still use all the benefits of DPC to compliment any insurance plan.
