Patients Rising NOW has joined a coalition of patients, doctors, policy experts, and providers in opposing HR 3708.
HR 3708, the Primary Care Enhancement Act of 2019, would impose price caps and detrimental exclusions on the most successful model extant in healthcare today that offers affordable care with no exclusions for those with chronic conditions. While we appreciate efforts to pass meaningful bi-partisan legislation clarifying the tax treatment of Direct Primary Care (DPC) periodic medical service fees, the recently introduced HR 3708 contains critical flaws identical to those in Section 3 of HR 6199 (2018) which failed during the 2018 legislative session. HR 3708 is a drastic departure from the original Primary Care Enhancement Act of 2017 (HR 365) that had broad bipartisan support and backing of the DPC community and patients alike.
