Primary care is the bedrock of reform of the US health system. New payment and care delivery models emphasize the importance of primary care medical homes with reimbursement prioritizing value over volume.

Of the myriad models emerging over the last decade, direct primary care (DPC) is unique in its renunciation of insurance companies and other third-party payers.
