The issue of Healthcare in America is front and center again just in time for the 2020 election. The Affordable Healthcare Act, known as ObamaCare, has turned out to be anything but affordable for most families. Skyrocketing costs, combined with high deductible and limited choices have made the plan unusable for many Americans. So, where do we go from here?
To answer that question, I have joining me a national and renowned voice, Dr. David Levien.
David Levien M.D. has been a leading surgeon for 33 years, and a teaching fellow, author and (MBA) economist. Dr. Levien describes the structure for the future of healthcare and lays out concrete solutions to this complex and daunting issue.
What is the difference between HealthCare and Health insurance?
How will technology improve the healthcare system?
How can we lower costs?
What is the future of Healthcare?
Some of the proposals by Democrat candidates could even eliminate the healthcare system as we know it. A single-payor (Government) System would eliminate Medicare, Medicaid, Employer plans, Insurance Companies, and put a wedge between healthcare providers due to the reduced government reimbursements. We will examine the Bernie Sanders proposal of “Medicare for All” and provide insight into what needs to be done to resurrect the delivery of quality healthcare to bring greater satisfaction in the patient experience as well as providing new technology concepts to lower the costs of healthcare.
