Georgia - expect them to reintroduce prior DPC legislation
Florida - many discussions, expect a reintroduction of prior DPC legislation
South Carolina - very early discussions, difficult to predict
Virginia - will reintroduce, but same Governor & legislature, so repeat veto likely

Non-Legislative Projects I'm working on include:
1) An article (hopefully of the academic variety) about the "Three Villains of Healthcare" - the worst culprits will likely surprise you (the health insurance companies didn't make the list).
2) The theoretical zero overhead DPC practice
3) Clinical Pearls of the DPC variety
Did I miss a state with planned legislation? Is there another project you would like me to consider?

Are you considering hiring another DPC physician? Just send me your ad with a link and I'll get it posted at no cost to you. Merry Christmas!
