Hour 1 – BJ Lawson on Solving the Health Care Crisis for Those That Want Primary Care Physicians…
Our country’s healthcare — and health — crisis is amplified by a primary care crisis. Independent primary care physicians are facing economic extinction largely due to the unsustainable economic burden of dealing with the third-party payer system of private insurers and government payers. As a result of declining reimbursement and rising overhead just to get paid, good doctors are being forced out of business or into becoming employees of large corporate institutions that further drive up costs and limit treatment options.
The average American medical practice has a staff to provider ratio of 4 to 1 — that means one provider seeing patients is supporting payroll for five people. Most of that overhead is directly due to the costs of coding, billing, and collecting from the third party payer system. The truth is that good primary care does not need to be expensive — it’s just the way that we pay for it that makes it expensive. And not only have third-party payers added unnecessary costs into the system, doctors have been coerced into meeting the needs of insurance companies and government bureaucrats instead of the needs of their patients thus destroying the doctor-patient relationship.
Physician Care Direct (http://physiciancaredirect.com) was created to restore the doctor-patient relationship, and allow any physician to offer his or her healthcare services as an affordable subscription much like a gym membership to individual patients as well as local employers. Physician Care Direct’s Simplicity Platform is an online private contracting and payment platform that bypasses the costs and unnecessary complexities of the third-party payer system so that doctors can again focus on the health and well-being of the one other person who matters — the patient.
Excellent physicians across the country are taking this opportunity to serve their patients instead of a flawed system, such as Dr. Mark Holthouse of the Center for Integrative and Holistic Medicin in Cameron Park, California (https://pcdsimplicity.com/medical_homes/center-for-functional-integrative-medicine). Dr. Holthouse is a great case study of the power of changing how we pay for primary care to make truly exceptional medical care affordable and accessible to anyone. His practice combines allopathic with functional and holistic medical diagnosis and treatment, and offers membership plans from $49 per month.
Simplicity also separates primary care from the artificial constraints of the medical coding system, which allows providers to offer their unique value propositions to their patients and communities. As a result, patients and employers have increased options for high-quality health care at a more affordable cost.

I will be going over it the second time with my wife very soon. Great work! I was wanting a more cogent and hard hitting approach, but as I listened and considered what you were doing, I think it is genius! So many are unaware, and have not any understanding of these things; They need time to process the vast amount of information. Not to mention what you two took so great care in doing to transition people from vaccine delusion, to vaccine truth.” – John Barker http://programs.webseed.com/Vaccines_Armed_and_Dangerous.htm
