Wisconsin faces some of the worst physician shortages of any state in the nation. A major reason why there are so few physicians serving Wisconsin’s health care needs is because our current third-party insurance system imposes a heavy financial toll on doctors.
The Direct Primary Care (DPC) model is successful at providing better access to better care at a better cost because it does not need to engage in the insurance industry. Fortunately, DPC would make it far easier for physicians to deliver care directly to patients.
This subscription-based health care service is affordable and family-friendly, with no surprise bills or exorbitant fees. Wisconsin families should have the choice of a transparent and reliable health care plan that works for their needs. However, along with several others, Governor Evers has vetoed this bill as well. Urge Evers to reconsider his position on this important health care reform in the future.
