Evolve Direct Primary Care
How It Works

“Direct Primary Care allows us to focus all of our attention, time and effort on caring for our patients instead of worrying about insurance administrators or checking off boxes.”

DPC definition: “A meaningful alternative to fee-for-service insurance billing that covers all or most primary care services including clinical and lab services, care coordination and comprehensive care management.” – American Academy of Family Physicians

Evolve Direct Primary Care

How It Works?

With or without insurance: Save Time & Money.

Evolve Direct delivers the best Primary Care in Maryland.

Designed to be fast, easy & affordable, Evolve helps you and your family save money on health expenses and get better care at the same time.

How is it possible?

Evolve is a Direct Primary Care. By cutting out all the insurance burdens, our providers can double the time they spend with you — and focus on just you and your health, happiness and well-being.

What if I already have insurance?

Our main goals are to keep you healthy and to save you money.

If it saves you money to get testing done or refer you through your insurance company, that is what we will do. But rest assured, Evolve will never submit any charges to your insurance–and you simply won’t need it with us.

If you have a higher deductible and don’t want to spend $1,500 on an MRI, we can get it for $400. If you need labs and don’t want to spend $300 towards your deductible, we can save you 85% on lab costs. The savings go on and on!

What’s different about Evolve?

Evolve Advocacy

Evolve is on YOUR side.

Our providers don’t answer to Medicare, Medicaid, insurers or even a big corporation. 

At Evolve, YOU are the focus — not your insurance company.

We Respect You and Your Time

Stop waiting hours — just to be rushed!

At Evolve Direct, we will spend as much time as is necessary with you to get to the bottom of things. Instead of feeling rushed in and out, you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions and be sure you understand any diagnosis and plan. 

Wait times at Evolve are rarely more than 15 minutes. Each visit is scheduled for 30 minutes to allow plenty of time for questions and answers. 

We are all tired of waiting for an hour in a dirty, crowded waiting room. Don’t be left to sitting in a cold sterile exam room–and just for a rushed 6-minute visit.

At Evolve Direct, we respect you and your time!

Already Have Health Insurance?

Evolve fits perfectly with higher-deductible plans. Most of us never reach our deductible.  Evolve can save you hundreds to thousands of dollars.

Use your health insurance like always — you just won’t need it at Evolve.

Use your insurance for catastrophic care, expensive testing or Specialists.

But when you are getting your primary or urgent care, you’ll only pay $25. Evolve Direct Primary Care will help you budget and saves you from unexpected of charges $250 or more.

With or without insurance, Evolve can save you and your family a lot of time and money. 

Evolve Direct Primary Care strongly encourages all of our patients to carry at least catastrophic health insurance for emergencies and major health expenses.

“Smart CEOs of companies are recognizing that there’s no insurance-based, insurance-centric solution for their healthcare problem,” Blanchard says. “Their problem is they’re footing the bill, in large part, for health care for their employees, but they have no control over its quality or delivery.”
DPC for County Employees in North Carolina studied: “In the first year, 44 percent of the county’s employees went with DPC—and to good effect, according to an analysis by the John Locke Foundation, a North Carolina research organization. As a group, the employees who used DPC incurred 23 percent less in medical expenses and 36 percent less in prescription expenses than their peers in the traditional health plan.”

“Paired with a reference-based pricing health plan for catastrophic care, the employer will gain control of their healthcare spend and improve the quality of care for employees.
