On this podcast, Ron talks with Eric about the direct contracting movement. How it involves millions of patients who are employees at small, medium, and large corporations. He estimates that direct contracting for health services comprises maybe 10% of the US population or about 30 million. But it is hard to get an exact count because it depends on your definition of direct contracting. Sometimes, just negotiating with a separate pharmacy benefits manager (PBM) or laboratory is what is done by a company. Some, however, have gone all in and are putting their employees in direct primary care offices or virtual services and contracting separately for nearly every contact their employees have in the health care environment.
This event is the largest physician innovation conference. The event is from August 2-8 in San Francisco, CA with online participation options available. Specifically, Ron will be presenting on Saturday, August 7th, 2021.
