In Closing 

Dr. Stephen Schimpff

The first of a 13 part series, Dr. Stephen Schimpff describes how America has both the best and worst healthcare system in the world.

These Doctors Got Fed Up With Insurance

The Affordable Care Act drove thousands of independent doctors to throw in the towel and join large hospital networks. However, a growing movement of doctors are fighting back against the bureaucratic system.

A Response to Naysayers

Dr. Paul Thomas responds:  This week, JAMA wrote an article on Direct Primary Care. One of my colleagues in medicine wrote me to ask a few follow up questions about DPC. If more doctors leave fee-for-service medicine and transition into DPC roles, will there be less capacity for patient care? ie will there be more patients without a dedicated Primary Care Physician? What about Medicaid and Medicare patients? Many medical students, residents, and practicing physicians feel an obligation to care for Medicaid/low income patients. As a DPC physician, are you abdicating your responsibility to these patients?
