The third taping of the Atlas MD podcast is live. You can stream it on iTunes. Drs. Josh and Doug focused this week on dispensing prescriptions from your own office. The team goes over everything you need to know — state legislation, permits, etc. They also offer some tips about what’s realistic to prescribe and what prescriptions you’ll want to coordinate with local pharmacies.
Dr. Doug also shares the story of a patient who would LOSE MONEY if they weren’t an Atlas MD member. The reason is that wholesale prescriptions can offer such significant savings, they offset a $50/month subscription fee. This is why we encourage direct primary care physicians to dispense prescriptions. You can cut out another middleman, the pharmacy, and foster an ongoing relationship with your patient. Because they can identify the short-term value, savings, they’re likely to stick around and enjoy the longterm benefits of seeing a DPC physician regularly.
