Congress and Direct Primary Care: An Interview with Senator Bill Cassidy
In Episode 1 of the Direct Primary Care (DPC) Startup Show, Dr Landon Roussel interviews Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. Both doctors from Louisiana who have practiced in an area of limited healthcare access and lower than average health outcomes, both Dr Roussel and Dr Cassidy understand first-hand the importance of improving access to primary care. While both joined the DPC movement at very different points in their careers, they understand as physicians that the more patients and physicians are given control over their own decisions through a direct relationship (without un-needed third party involvement), the happier both will be and the better the health outcome for the patient. In the interview they discuss the importance of educating the political community about the value of DPC, why DPC has yet to become mainstream, and what policy measures lie on the horizon for promoting the DPC movement. While this interview itself was recorded before the failed passage of the American Healthcare Act, their discussion bears much relevance to future potential political measures to reform a broken healthcare system and (hopefully) make DPC a reality for most Americans.
