President Trump’s June 24, 2019 Executive Order on health care transparency contains a key provision regarding direct primary care. We have the pleasure of having back on the show Dr. Lee Gross. Dr. Gross and colleagues in the DPC movements were instrumental in getting the White House to clarify a prior ambiguity regarding how direct primary care membership fees ought to be considered from a tax standpoint. Dr. Gross will be telling us about this effort and about the implications of that change for the growth of the direct care movement.
Dr. Gross is a family physician in North Port, FL. He is a pioneer and a leader in the DPC movement. He is a health care consultant to physician practices, medical organizations, insurance groups, hospitals and private businesses. He founded and serves as President of the Docs 4 Patient Care Foundation and he is chairman of a new lobbying organization called DPC Action.
