2014- The end of the world again?

The Shakers believed the world would end in 1792 (so why have kids?). People affiliated with various religions have predicted the end of the world many times. The latest end of the world prediction focuses on December 21, 2012, based on the Mayan calendar.

End of the world predicitons trigger fear, skepticism, and debate. In health care we have our own “end of the world” scenario for 2014: the federal health care reform calendar brings mandated health care exchange system implementation. Various authors and experts identify doomsday scenarios that frankly seem plausible: employers may drop employees from employer funded health care coverage; states may or may not participate in the health care insurance exchange system; contrarians hope that litigation or politics will kill or modify healthcare reform. 2014 is certainly triggering interest, fear, skepticism, and debate. And that’s interesting (but probably not interesting enough to trigger a disaster movie with colossal special effects like “2012” released in 2009).

The next two years will yield interesting challenges as we all ponder whether US healthcare reform will survive legal challenges, become broadly implemented, overwhelm health care providers with demand in excess of capacity, and/or lack sufficient resources to fund mandates. With Medicare reimbursements scheduled to drop, and health care insurance reimbursements unlikely to increase, we are entering into a period of ongoing uncertainty as to how or where US health care will evolve. Since US employer funding of employee health care significantly contributed to the development of insurance-based medical services delivery, the advent of US employers lawfully dropping employee health care coverage seems cataclysmic.

Why should I join AAPP?

The American Academy of Private Physicians (AAPP) is a nonprofit organization for the purpose of supporting and fueling the growth of medical practices that provide concierge and other forms of personalized, value-based medical care.

Since its founding in 2003, AAPP has expanded its member and sponsor base, and AAPP members are united by their common efforts and dedication to making medical care more accessible and convenient to patients by redefining medical services in ways that are not possible for medical practices that rely solely on insurance payers for their revenue.

The AAPP is what it is because of our members, but what benefits do our members enjoy for being part of this prestigious group? […]
