Advocacy & Movement Building
The Direct Primary Care movement continues to grow across the United States. While the DPC Alliance’s main focus is on empowering DPC clinics to be successful, we are also growing awareness and understanding of the DPC model more broadly. To that end, the Alliance maintains relationships and works with the media, academic institutions, and other professional organizations.
The growth of the Direct Primary Care model will have far-reaching impacts on our health care system. Scaling it will necessarily force changes to many aspects of the status quo. The Alliance will be on guard to protect the principles and interests of independent DPC practices. This is what we mean by advocacy.
The DPCA does not engage in any direct lobbying activities at the local, state, or federal levels.
