Speaking on Business: Story Family Medicine
As a direct primary care practice, the goal for Story Family Medicine is to provide patients with individualized medical care and better contact with their doctor.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
When calling Story Family Medicine in Moscow, it’s not unusual to reach Dr. Rod Story himself. If not Dr. Story, you’ll likely reach his wife, Jenny, who is his business partner and the practice manager. As a direct primary care practice, the goal for Story Family Medicine is to provide patients with individualized medical care and better contact with their doctor.
Story Family Medicine is part of a growing network of medical clinics called “Direct Primary Care” that offer an innovative approach to healthcare. Through a single monthly membership cost, patients are covered for all care that a family medicine clinic offers, including procedures and wellness visits. This model allows a family or business to obtain great medical care for a reasonable rate, which also fills the gap with high-deductible health plans.
Dr. Story says this style of practice is taking off. Last fall he attended a conference where 500 new practices were being developed, and that’s in addition to 1,000 that already exist nationwide. Story Family Medicine is allowing him to increase the level of care offered to each patient, without burning out from dealing with insurance and administrative costs. Not to mention they can provide medicines at wholesale pricing through the membership program. And patients love this healthcare model!
