SEA 303 clarifies that direct primary care agreements between doctors and patients are not considered insurance policies and are not subject to insurance regulation. Direct primary care agreements are contracts between health providers and patients that provide primary care medical services to the patient in exchange for a set price over a fixed period of time without the involvement of insurance. State Sen. Eric Koch (R-Bedford, seated left) authored the bill.

"Direct primary care agreements are a relatively new practice model existing outside of traditional insurance," Koch said. "Removing the third-party payer from the room frees doctors to focus on patient care and squeezes cost out of the system. While Washington is in gridlock over healthcare reform, Indiana has passed a bipartisan solution for Hoosiers."
