That was 22 years ago. Today, Human Nature are … [Continue reading...]

AMAC founder Dan Weber gives the amazing back story details of how physicians were polled and asked what it would take to be willing to treat patients for free, and overwhelmingly they agreed to do so if they only could catch a break from the government, as in a tax break.
What's more, the other concern doctors had with regard to taking on a larger caseload was the additional exposure to potential malpractice lawsuits since their insurance rates are already sky high.
Weber proposed to give them a Good Samaritan exemption wherein … [Continue reading...]
