Session: DPC Practice Fragility
Speaker: Tom Blue
Time: 11:30am PT, September 25
On average, a full-time primary care physician in the U.S. will lose more than $65,000 in revenue in 2020. Overall, the U.S. primary care sector will lose nearly $15 billion. Losses stem from drastic reductions in office visits and fees for services during COVID-19 shutdowns from March to May. Losses threaten practice viability, reducing further an already insufficient number of primary care providers in the United States. Hear from Tom Blue, functional medicine expert as he shares important data from a recent study that dispels these statistics for direct primary care leaders and how this innovative model can lead the way forward.
