SimpleCare Story


Knowledge Is Power... 
C. Everett Koop, MD

MISSION: The American Association of Patients and Providers is a non-profit, non-partisan group of patients, physicians and other health care providers creating   solutions to America's health care challenges. Through synergistic efforts we are implementing common-sense health care programs and services designed to empower patients and protect the patient-doctor relationship. The AAPP is inspired to Transform our current healthcare system by creating an alternative option for those who choose to access it.


PROGRAMS: The following programs have been developed to facilitate the mission of the AAPP.

  • The SimpleCare program educates patients and their providers that the best price occurs when patients pay in full at time of service - PIFATOS.
  • The Cares For America program provides opportunities for those who are financially destitute.  Care is given and patients are given 90 days to give back their time and energy to the community by volunteering at a participating program. 

  • The Doctor, Heal Thyself program is directed to all providers of health care.  This program is a dynamic and expanding array of ideas, tools, techniques and resources designed to enhance the quality delivery of health care and promote clinical excellence.  The AAPP appreciates the diverse and creative endeavors of like minded organizations and uses the Doctor, Heal Thyself program to spread the word about these innovative solutions. 

PHILOSOPHY: Our philosophy is built on a vision to heal our health care system by working together, both patients and their various professional health care providers, including both traditional and alternative medical practitioners. 

  • Doctors of Medicine - MD, 
  • Doctors of Osteopathy - DO, 
  • Podiatrists - DPM, 
  • Chiropractors - DC, 
  • Doctors of Naturopathy - ND, 
  • Psychologists - PhD, 
  • Massage Therapists - LMT, LMP, M-LMP
  • Physician Assistants - PA-C, 
  • Nurse Practitioners - ARNP
  • Other dedicated health care professionals. 

The AAPP acknowledges that a spectrum of health care services exists from which our patients can choose.  These various physicians and health providers are trained for their specific needs. The AAPP appreciates that each health care domain offers a unique perspective to aid the patient in need and can co-exist when patients are allowed to choose their preferred form of health care practitioner. The AAPP believes that by empowering patients with the financial incentives to be responsible for their choices in health care, the country can return to a patient-focused, principle-centered health care system.

GOAL: Our goals are to return to a simple system of healthcare. The programs and services created and implemented by the members of AAPP are designed to cut the vast administrative expense which currently exists in the health care system.  Our programs are promote trust and facilitate releasing our nations health care providers to have the freedom to practice the art in which they have been trained.
