Is CMS “DPC” model headed wrong direction?

The RFI goes on to explain the CMS vision of, “direct provider contracting (DPC), through which CMS would directly contract with Medicare providers.” Obviously this interpretation of “DPC” turns the true meaning of Direct Patient Care on its head.


A primary care physician by training, my passion is researching and writing about the importance restoring patient centered care, supporting independent private physicians, promoting free-market solutions and seeking sustainable fiscal policy in healthcare.

  1. You (and yes, I mean YOU Dr. RN) 🙂 should write a balanced op/ed on your blog here for docs to read … I’d put it up on DPC Journal and elsewhere. I think a balanced, seasoned Physicians perspective on this, not an emotional response is what is needed … just a thought. 🙂 I think you’d be great at writing this. 🙂 ~m 🙂
