“Direct Primary Care”
and The Affordable Care Act

The ZüpMed membership program in Memphis, Tennessee meets the definition of a Direct Primary Care (DPC) medical practice model. DPC has been called “the epitome of value-based medicine” and is growing rapidly across the country.


DPC is explicitly mentioned in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as an acceptable option for receiving medical care services without insurance, and we believe that membership in the ZüpMed program meets the current ACA requirements. To be certain that these rules apply to your particular situation, however, please check with your accountant or with information available at healthcare.gov.
