Physician speakers from across the country (see conference details here) come to the Marriott Minneapolis on Friday, May 9, to describe from their own experiences one of the fastest growing trends in the provision of health care - the rapid growth of Direct Pay Independent Practice medicine.

Physicians and surgeons tell their personal story of why and how they built cash practices, and threw off Medicare, Medicaid, and the insurance reimbursement system. This conference is a continuation of a narrative that is growing among physicians who are increasingly tired of government and third party payer interference in their encounters with patients.

The first session keynoter is Richard L. Reece, MD, of Connecticut, former editor of the Minnesota Medical Journal, blogging now at Medinnovation and Health Reform.

The evening dinner keynoter is Texan Merrill Matthews, PhD, Forbes contributor and Resident Scholar at the Institute for Policy Analysis.

Media is welcomed at the conference. If you want to arrange an interview in advance of the conference with one of the speakers, contact Dave Racer. 651.705.8583

My new E-book Understanding ObamaCare: Travails of Implementation: Notes of a Health Reform Watcher is now on Amazon. The Kindle edition sells for $3.99.   You may be interested in reading it since ObamaCare may determine  the outcome of the November midterm elections.  You may also order the book from Westbow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson Publishers,  or from its 35,000 outlets, which include bookstores, who  can help order the book for you.   This is the first of 3 E-books on ObamaCare,  the second book will be called ObamaCare Revealed,  and the third will be ObamaCare: Dead or Alive.
