Marion Mass (@mass_marion), MD, practicing pediatrician and co-founder of Practicing Physicians of America, joins the show to share her unique ideas about how to reduce healthcare costs while simultaneously improving access to care. She describes her “sentinel moment” in which she realized that physicians are no longer the primary medical advocates for their patients and how this led her to founding a grassroots physician organization dedicated to patient advocacy. The conversation takes interesting turns into hospital fines for price transparency, patient copays and premiums, Medicare, direct primary care, pharmacy benefit managers, and so much more.
