What is PPC and how is it different from an insurance plan?
Patient/Physician Cooperatives (PPC), established in 2005, is a non-profit organization of patients, physicians and member representatives. PPC is not an insurance product or discount program; it is a group of physicians who have joined together to give their patients access to affordable, basic health care through mutual support.
How does the program work?
Local non-profit offers array of affordable health care services
Residents of greater Houston have a unique health care alternative to expensive insurance plans or remaining uninsured, and now, this plan offers even more benefits to its members.
At a time when health care is top of mind for members of Congress as well as individual citizens, a non-profit organization in Houston, Texas, has been successfully providing affordable primary care to persons who need it. Patient Physician Cooperatives (PPC) was established in 2005 as an organization of patients, physicians and member representatives, with two clinics. Since then, the organization has grown to 36 clinics which are geographically dispersed throughout the city.
