How a Switch From Managed Care to Direct Care Improved Earnings and Satisfaction

Dr. Kara Ramsey Foster talks about direct care
Dr. Ramsey Foster

Kara Ramsey Foster, OD, opened EyeCare for You in Apex, North Carolina, in 2015. A few years later, she was stressed by feeling like she was working for managed vision companies rather than herself. So she changed to a direct care, fee for service model. Hear her explain how she did it and how she’s sharing the idea with other doctors through her directcaredifference.com website and program.

Learn more and see Dr. Ramsey Foster explain the start of Direct Care Difference in this short video.
