HAMPDEN, ME (April 28, 2014) – Do you remember a day when you could see your doctor and your doctor could take care of you? No red tape. No government bureaucracy or insurance company “middle man” telling you which doctor you could see, where you could receive your care, which medications were “authorized” and how often you could receive treatment.  Well, that day has returned.

The Osteopathic Center for Family Medicine is excited to offer a revolutionary change to the delivery of healthcare, one that puts you the patient back in charge. Decisions about your medical care should not be driven by the government, insurance companies or the burden of costly out-of-pocket expenses. That is why we’ve developed a low-cost, comprehensive plan called the Direct Care Plan where preventive healthcare visits are complimentary and office visits are only $35. In addition to a list of other benefits, members have access to low-cost medications and lab testing. At the heart of the plan is wellness care, which includes comprehensive annual examinations, lifestyle evaluation, review of applicable preventive healthcare and treatment options and a written plan for each member of your family.

The rules and regulations imposed by the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare), other government programs, for-profit insurance companies and large hospital systems are coming between physicians and patients, making it increasingly difficult for independent private physicians to practice medicine.

Fortunately, we can work together to eliminate these obstacles—and the unnecessary cost, paperwork, stress, and uncertainty of government and corporate healthcare—and put the focus back where it belongs… on improving your health.

While the Direct Care Plan does not replace insurance for major medical and catastrophic care, it does reduce co-pay and out-of-pocket expenses for many patients.

For more information, please visit our website at and feel free to join us at our upcoming Question and Answer Open House forum on May 3, from 11 am-1 pm at The Church of the Open Door, 270 Main Road, North Hampden, ME 04444.
