Restaurant Worker Referral Program, Inc. (RwRp) is a not-for-profit charity program that offers refers uninsured restaurant workers FREE access to a medical doctor. Founded in 2007 by David J. Ores, MD in New York City, there are no share-holders and no profits. RwRp is a micro example of not for profit medical care.
We are NOT health insurance or any sort. RwRp is a health care cooperative created by a doctor and restaurant owners to begin to address a severe defect in health access for many thousands of restaurant workers. RwRp was created by us and for us.
RwRp engages medical doctors to provide services in their existing medical offices and this which makes our overhead very close to zero. Some RwRp funds are used for administration, needed materials and necessary expenses as warranted. All our accounts and activities are open at all times to member restaurants and to our accountant. We have a policy of full financial transparency.
As a RwRp member restaurant, you are a partner in this health and wellness enterprise. Not a customer. We are all in this together and the mission is to provide the best possible access to health care for all your valued uninsured workers. RwRp depends on your advice, support and input. Not only your financial support. Your suggestions, ideas and your expertise help RwRp function as effectively as possible.
How RwRp WorksThe restaurants contribute into a common fund. $50.00-$400.00 per month, the price depends on the number of uninsured workers in each restaurant. The RwRp fund pays an honorarium to the physician, in the range of $60.00 to $125.00 per visit. (See basical mechanics for RwRp Contribution Schedule.) The uninsured workers sees a RwRp medical doctor at NO CHARGE to the worker. Doctors receive funds ONLY if and when they see a restaurant worker.
There are no middle people, profits or dividends. There are no hidden charges.
RwRp is now ready to engage medical doctors in other cities throughout the USA as RwRp providers.
