FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

By Concierge Medicine Today | The Direct Primary Care Journal

May 12, 2017 –  The Direct Primary Care Journal and its sister publication, Concierge Medicine Today (CMT), the premier trade publications in Concierge Medicine, free market healthcare models and direct primary care, released a statement today into the hands of physicians and lawmakers which discussed the Support for laws that encourage patient choice and physician independence.

Concierge Medicine Today (CMT) believes the American consumer (i.e. patient) should have access to the widest range of services made available by licensed physicians and healthcare professionals. CMT supports laws that respect and enhance consumer choice in the marketplace. State laws should support an independent physician that is unencumbered by controls imposed by insurance company regulations, large healthcare systems, and which ensure access to market for all doctors wishing to provide Concierge Medicine and direct-to-consumer healthcare programs to his/her community at-large. For smaller Subscription-based Medical Offices, the ability to be unencumbered by these market forces is essential to practice business survival.

EDITOR’S NOTE on the ABOVE INTERVIEW:
“What we’ve learned in healthcare innovation of the past decade is that when new terms are introduced into the marketplace, the terminology that the ‘media’ uses mosts, wins.
