About Patient / Physician Cooperatives


•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 most insurance companies, PPC has no exclusions for age, income, or pre-existing conditions.

•How does the program work?•

Through the concept of cooperative purchasing, the members function as a group to obtain access to health care and association 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 100 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 located at convenient locations throughout the greater Houston area and beyond, including clinics & employer groups in Arizona, New Mexico & Oklahoma.

The PPC is sponsored by 501(c)(3) charity Tomorrow’s Bread Today.

…Honest, Compassionate and Accessible…

I am a healthy woman who has been without health insurance for about 12 years because of rising health insurance premiums.  I had it most of my life, but could no longer afford the monthly payments and that has been a source of panic and anxiety as I got older.  This year I enrolled in PPC and it has been such a luxury to be able to get free lab work and imaging.  I’ve also been able to create a great, ongoing  relationship with a primary care Doctor due to the availability of free visits.  I can’t tell you what peace of mind this has given me.  I feel powerful and taken care of in the area of health care and that has enriched my life greatly.  Everyone whom I’ve dealt with has been honest, compassionate and accessible.  It is an amazing program for people and I am happy to share this with everyone.
