About Patient / Physician Cooperatives

OR-BadgePatient Physician Cooperatives of Portland is a locally managed non-profit Oregon Cooperative, formed in 2011 by citizens and volunteers in the greater Portland area, interested in making a positive impact on the health status of the uninsured in Oregon. By offering direct access to medical care and wellness education programs, members can experience a healthier life. Early diagnosis and treatment of chronic illnesses, also means fewer emergency room visits and hospital stays.

PPC is not an insurance product or discount program; it is a group of physicians, health practitioners and patients working together to improve the overall health and welfare of the community. Contracts for medical services are made directly between the patient and physician members. And, unlike most insurance companies, PPC has no exclusions for age, income, or pre-existing conditions.

This is a great alternative to expensive insurance for individuals or small businesses that want to provide healthcare for their employees. Our co-op includes Over 80 Providers that are offering care and healing to co-op members right now!

RX Discounts Worth the PPC Membership

“PPC/PDX has been a great experience for me. Their patient advocacy, discounts on prescription drugs and network of providers is well worth the monthly charge. You get access to whole range of naturopaths, massage therapists, chiropractors, dentists and general medical doctors that truly care about people. PPC provides a platform where patients and health professionals can really work together and not become just another number. It’s been one of the best choices I’ve made in the last 2+ years. Thank you for being there, PPC.”
