The home of Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson just took a major step forward on behalf of its citizens, in the realm of health freedom.

A bill has made it out of a committee in the Virginia house that would help make health freedom a reality, by essentially nullifying provisions of the federal Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

As noted by the Tenth Amendment Foundation, which focuses on and promotes states’ rights concepts like nullification, the bill, HB 685, introduced by Rep. R. Steven Landes earlier this month, “specifies that direct primary care agreements (sometimes called medical retainer agreements) do not constitute insurance, thereby freeing doctors and patients from the onerous requirements and regulations under the state insurance code.”

The practice is also called concierge medicine.

The measure passed unanimously out of the House Commerce and Labor Committee, 22-0, making it eligible for debate and a vote on the full chamber floor, the foundation said.

As reported by Michigan Capitol Confidential, removing a third-party payer from the doctor-patient relationship enables medical retainer agreements to help both by minimizing costs.

Finally: cost-savings that Obamacare promised but did not deliver
