DPC is often a more affordable choice particularly for the uninsured or high deductible insured or for those with a healthshare plan. It may even be cheaper for those with "good" insurance when all the discounts and cost awareness are taken into account!

Direct Primary Care is NOT Health Insurance and some form of health-insurance or healthshare plan is advised for the big items like hospitalization or surgery - but this type of insurance can cost far less 

even with DPC costs added in!

DPC can be more affordable when coupled with right insurance or Healthshare plan!

A Word to the Wise

1. We DO accept Medicare patients but not Medicare insurance. As of July 1, 2021 we now offer all services to Medicare patients as Dr. Robiolio has opted out of Medicare participation. This means that Dr Robiolio can still order x-rays and other services outside of DIME Medical for which you can still use your Medicare insurance if you wish.

2. We DO Accept HMO insured patients (but do not accept the insurance; remember we are a cash only / cash equivalent accepting Direct Primary Care business), FURTHERMORE, as a NONparticipating provider, our doctor's orders for tests, medications, or care provided OUTSIDE of DIME Medical will NOT be honored by the HMO for payment. For this reason we do NOT recommend coupling HMO insurance with a Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice such as DIME Medical.

3. We can accept patients who have Wisconsin Medicaid (Badger Care, Forward, etc) HOWEVER, we do not use the insurance and so one would still have to pay all fees. Furthermore, as a NONparticipating provider, our doctor's orders for tests, medications, or care OUTSIDE of DIME Medical will NOT be honored by Medicaid for payment.
