•What is PPC?•
Patient/Physician Cooperatives (PPC) is a comprehensive healthcare system, starting with a group of physicians, health practitioners and patients working together to provide access to affordable, basic health care. Contracts for medical services are made directly between the patient and physician members. By creating this comprehensive system, incorporating medical discount programs & a variety of Association Group or Employer Sponsored insurance plans, we have effectively eliminated the red-tape that acts as a barrier to providing patients with high quality care. Unlike insurance companies, PPC has no exclusions for age, income, or pre-existing conditions.
•How does the program work?•
Through cooperative purchasing, the members function as a group to obtain access to health care and association and employer sponsored group insurance at affordable prices. Primary or basic medical care services are provided to members with no co-payments or $25 co-payments for primary care, labs and imaging. There are no health qualifications. Currently, members may select from more than 200 primary care physicians. Each member signs a monthly payment plan agreement with a primary care provider through which the availability of the physician and his or her services are paid in full. Primary care physicians are at convenient locations throughout the service areas, including clinics & employer groups in several States.
The PPC is sponsored by 501(c)(3) charity Tomorrow’s Bread Today.
