@j.glover1 That's great! That could really make a difference for patients interested in DPC.
@rocky_mountain_group This is something for us to keep on our radar. Especially as we look at what being a "network" entails. From what I've heard about other states looking at DPC wrap around plans, what we have to be careful about is keeping our contracts as non-specific as possible. For example, they might want us to sign that we will "always see a patient same day for urgent concerns" but then that could be interpreted as someone who calls with 2 weeks of sinus symptoms on a Friday at 4:30 pm has to be seen rather than wait for Monday (you and I know that it's not urgent but insurance companies don't). Or they might want us to sign that we will maintain our own magical list of affordable specialists (which is outside of our control when the specialists have to contract directly with the insurance).
So...I'm optimistic but we just need to watch out for our own interests when the time comes. Ideally, they will simply let patients use any DPC.
