What is direct primary care, and how can it help patients?

The fee-for-service model of healthcare has been reexamined over the past few years, with alternative models increasingly gaining traction.

-The benefit for health systems
-What about specialty care?
-Employers are starting to explore new options 
-Should insurers be scared?
-The difference between this model and the ACO REACH model
