Could Direct Primary Care Be An Answer to Post-Obamacare Access Problems?
Even after Congress passed the Affordable Care Act in 2010, the Show-Me Institute continued to point out the problems that the ACA not only created, but also the fundamental health policy problems it left unaddressed. Among the problems the law substantively failed to address, one of the biggest was the supply of primary care doctors. That's why it's my pleasure to share with you our latest research paper, "Where Obamacare Leaves Questions, Direct Primary Care May Offer Answers."
Along with explaining what direct primary care is and the advantages it may offer patients and doctors alike, the paper also walks through many of the problems of the ACA and outlines why those problems need to be addressed sooner, not later, if health care in this country is going to improve over the long haul. We'll have more on the contents of the paper in the days ahead.
