President Trump’s June 24, 2019, Executive Order on health care transparency contains a key provision regarding direct primary care. Koka and Accad welcome back on the show Dr. Lee Gross, a family physician in North Port, Florida, and a pioneer and a leader in the DPC movement.
Dr. Gross and colleagues 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 discusses this effort and the implications for the growth of the direct care movement.
Dr. Gross 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.
The Mises Institute exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian school of economics, and individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. These great thinkers developed praxeology, a deductive science of human action based on premises known with certainty to be true, and this is what we teach and advocate. Our scholarly work is founded in Misesian praxeology, and in self-conscious opposition to the mathematical modeling and hypothesis-testing that has created so much confusion in neoclassical economics.
