ABSTRACT
The article asserts that direct pay models in the U.S. primary care practice could reset a fractured healthcare system, as well as enable primary care doctors (PCPs) to have more time with patients, thus improving care. Topics discussed include the fundamental problem of a flawed business model that forces PCPOs to care for too many patients that lessens their ability to provide high level care. Also mentioned is the need for PCPs and their patients to force the issue of direct primary care.
