Making the Case for Primary Care

Research shows remarkable returns on investment in primary care. For every dollar invested in primary care, we can save $13 in downstream costs to the system. Patients who have primary care spend 30 percent less on health care than patients who don’t and they are less likely to suffer from cancer, heart disease or stroke. Family Medicine for America’s Health is making the case for a strong primary care foundation with the work of our seven tactic teams and a national communications campaign called Health Is Primary.
