The Affordable Care Act (P.L 111-148) recognizes DPC as a delivery reform and allows DPC Medical Homes to offer coverage in health insurance exchanges in combination with a wraparound insurance policy provided by a qualified health plan (QHP). Working together, the two must satisfy all other essential health benefits requirements under H.R.3590. DPC practices provide all primary care in a monthly fee arrangement. The QHP is used for hospitalization, specialty care and other more costly services.
