Direct Primary Care

Introduced on Jan. 11, 2021
Status: Signed into Law




Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a growing direct care model where Montana patients bypass insurance entirely to pay doctors, in the form of a membership, in exchange for unlimited access to primary care services for as little as $70 per month. SB 101, proposed by Senator Cary Smith of Billings, follows the Frontier Institute’s recommendations to permanently authorize DPC and other direct care arrangements, creating a definition for DPC in state law.
