Transparency and Access to Healthcare
Health Law Talk Presented by Chehardy Sherman Williams
Two of the most prevalent issues in healthcare are transparency and access to care. The direct primary care model attempts to solve these issues by making primary care affordable, transparent, and accessible by allowing patients to contract directly with the primary care physician for a low monthly fee, who in turn does not bill or invoice the patient’s insurance company. Therefore, patients can take advantage of a low-cost/transparent primary care model while enjoying the benefits of a primary care concierge type practice. In the latest episode of Health Law Talk, healthcare attorneys Conrad Meyer, Roy Bellina, and Chris Martin sit down with special guest Dr. Karl Hanson, a specialist in Family Medicine and founder of Infinity Health, a direct primary care practice in Kenner, Louisiana, to discuss the direct primary care model, how physician can start a direct primary care practice, the advantages and disadvantages of direct primary care, and the regulatory issues involved in direct primary care. This episode should not be missed for those who are interested in learning about an alternative model that provides transparency as well as patient access to care.
