Dr Jonas, the host of the Dr. Synonymous Show, will review the DPC Ohio "Unsummit" that was previewed on last week's show. Lots of energy and ideas flowed as the enthusiastic participants shared their situations, dreams and plans. The Presdent Elect of the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians, Ryan Kauffman, MD announced his DPC leanings and represented the OAFP well with an update of OAFP DPC perspectives and acting as the "price police" for our meeting. He introduced the rules about prices being taboo and clarified, a couple times, the importance of the rules for fairness and protection of all involved in meetings and presentations.
Dale Bellis, Executive Director of Liberty Direct was a well received participant who had a back end plan that's affordable and off the grid of ACA administered by Liberty Healthshare, a non-profit organization of Gospel Light Mennonite Church Medical Aid Plan, Inc. that is recognized by the US gov't as a healthcare sharing ministry, exempt from the ACA.
Mike Strickland, MD, trained in the AtlasMD DPC system, and Ryan Kauffman, MD, soon to go to Brian Forrest, MD's bootcamp for DPC presented about "pure" DPC practice while Phil Whitecar, MD and Dr. Jonas presented about their hybrid practices in Beavercreek. Will Sawyer, MD from Cincinnati, who operates a subscription practice in Cincinnati, reviewed the legislative situation in the nation and Ohio for DPC.
We had fun. Dr Jonas will also add some comments and review the Dr. Synonymous blog about "Grain Gonads".
