Hopefully most of you received my most recent DPC Frontier Newsletter. There are few additional updates worth mentioning. Check out the states page for a summary (click on each respective state for details). Twenty three states have DPC laws on the books, two more (MT and MA) have friendly insurance commissioner guidance, three others have formal proposed legislation under current consideration (PA, WI, FL) and groups in many other states are organizing official efforts. I think it is fair to say that we have reached a tipping point!
The DPC mapper has been designed to be more useful to both patients, physicians and policymakers. Each practice now has the ability to provide more details and may easily make updates on an ongoing basis.
What are your DPC Resolutions for 2018? Here are three to kick things off:
1) 30+ states with DPC "not insurance" laws
2) Equal Tax (HSA) Treatment
3) Over 1,000 practices in the DPC Mapper
