I totally agree that DPC needs to be Bi Partisan but even that doesn't seem to get the job done. We all know that it is a simple solution when you put the patient first. Tom Price has claimed this and preaches this with each interview. We must realize that the argument is not the care of heath care but who will pay for it. Our country has been trained to believe that the ONLY way to secure care is to have that third party payor. When a patient calls a NON DPC office, the first question is "What type of insurance do you have?" As if to say, do you have the credentials needed to warrant a response. A DPC first question is "What can I do for you today" By removing the bureaucracy we can concentrate on care.
But... this the debate. As long as we have multiple "NON CARE RELATED" groups that want to be fed through health care, we are going to have a struggle with this system. Julie Gunther related that for every one practicing physician in the US there are 16 managers for a health care system.
We also have to be able to have politicians that will be able to vote for the CORRECT solution rather than to stick to party lines. It is absolutely juvenile what is happening in our government right now. Making decisions based on what have you done to help me or what have you done to go against me rather than choosing a solution that makes sense for all.
We can only continue to hold DPC up as the solution where Patients come first and our efforts are to provide care to all at a reasonable affordable price and making health care better in this country
