Access Healthcare, P.A. is committed to providing high quality medical care services to the population of southwestern Wake County. We are motivated by the need for more patient friendly healthcare services in this era of increasingly complicated managed care. We strive to make healthcare services more readily available, affordable, and less complicated. Through a simple and affordable fee schedule and with a nonreliance on managed care networks we make accessing primary healthcare services convenient and affordable.
Access Healthcare Direct is revolutionizing the healthcare industry through an innovative Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice model that improves health care quality while also reducing costs. Both employers and individuals are embracing DPC, which removes the “middle man” (i.e. insurance companies) from the relationship between patient and physician. By doing so, there are no third party insurance companies driving up costs or controlling doctors’ medical decisions. Therefore, the patient’s best interest is the number one priority – not insurance companies or the government.
Access Healthcare Direct’s national network of physicians deliver comprehensive primary care services through a simple and affordable fixed monthly fee. No co-pay. No deductible. No prior authorizations. No insurance required.
