Interesting copy and paste:

Interestingly, the Affordable Care Act, requiring individuals to purchase health insurance, could actually drive the growth of direct primary care, which bypasses insurance. The Affordable Care Act allows direct primary care providers to participate in the insurance exchanges with the requirement that providers must be coupled with an insurance policy covering non-primary care services.[viii] In the wake of the Affordable Care Act, when many patients are facing the perils of high-deductible policies or else the threat of an IRS penalty, the opportunity to receive personalized treatment for less than $150 per month, in addition to a wrap-around policy, may become very appealing. As of yet, however, direct primary care has not taken off through the health insurance exchanges. This may change if entrepreneurial physicians find ways to partner with insurance companies to bring patients both high-quality and low-cost out-of-pocket direct primary care, with the assurance of cost certainty in the event of the need for specialized care.

I (think) that I like it

anything to cut out the 30% profit and overhead  to insurance companies drives down cost to the consumer and increase profits to the physician
