Pillars of the FMMA | Free Market Medical Association

1. PRICE

  • PRICE is NOT a product. CARE is the product.
  • Selling access to pricingis anti-free market.
  • Discount brokers” who get paid by selling “savings” are not transparent.

2. VALUE

  • VALUE is established when the buyer and seller agree on a FULLY DISCLOSED, mutually beneficial price for care.
  • If a vendor adds or changes that price IN ANY WAY, those amounts should be truthfully disclosed

3. EQUALITY

  • PRICE EQUALITY is the basis of a free market.
  • Cash is KING.
  • Any willing cash buyer should be offered the same price regardless of any factor.
