Have you ever sat in a doctor’s office waiting room thinking how great it would be if the costs for services were posted up front, where you could review them in advance of your visit?

Now you can.

Like Sunset Primary Care, many practices across the country are moving toward a new, revolutionary model of health care – one that offers cash-only or discounted services for cash up front and doesn’t require insurance.

Sometimes called “Direct Pay” or “Direct Primary Care,” these new cash-only, no-insurance-needed modes of healthcare are quickly becoming the preferred option among patients seeking an affordable option to skyrocketing medical costs.

Ideal for patients without health insurance or those with high deductibles or co-pays, direct pay practices provide a great option for those who only need a family checkup, health and wellness visit or some other service or procedure they’d prefer to pay out of pocket for and not have to deal with the hassles and red tape of insurance.

Or, for those with insurance, it can make greater financial sense to go to a direct pay practice that may only charge a fraction of the cost for a procedure or service that might otherwise cost thousands of dollars for that same procedure through a traditional hospital or medical center by the time a claim is filed.

Smarter Medicine

At Sunset Primary Care, we not only offer affordable primary care with no insurance required, visits start as low as $60. And, what’s more, our prices are posted in our lobby and on our website!

Patients may receive discounted cash rates by as much as 50 to 75% and receive a “super-bill” to send to their insurance company if they choose to.
