Representative Matt Rosendale, from Montana, has introduced the Direct Primary Care Accessibility Act bill. Rosendale helped push DPC laws in his home state recently and this new legislation “would protect the ability of Americans to purchase health care from their doctors without going through an insurance company first.”
“We’ve all heard that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” Representative Rosendale said. “If the law can help people get to the doctor more quickly and cheaply with direct access to primary care physicians, then we have a good chance of seeing healthier Americans. It’s an approach that’s just gone into law in our state that I think will work nationwide.”
We agree with Mr. Rosendale but these bills have been a regular occurrence in Congress and unfortunately go nowhere. Maybe this will be the lucky ticket?
