Is Our Healthcare System Working Exactly as Planned?

Today’s show takes us in a different but related direction into the dumpster fire of health insurance pertaining to employer-based care. Joining me is David Contorno, Founder of E Powered Benefits, which itself sounds jargony. Still, I assure you, he’s one of the more controversial and outspoken whistleblowers advocating in the space, and you may be surprised at all of the aha and gestalt moments revealed on the show. Everyone knows that there are benefits when we take a job, but what exactly are those benefits? Do we really read all the fine print? Does the employer genuinely have our interests in mind vs. the overly enticing cost-saving measures that limit your choices? Are we blindly accepting the iTunes Terms Of Service without reading all the fine print? It’s easy to confuse, comport, and conflate healthcare for health insurance. In the end, it all comes down to who writes the check on your behalf. Unfortunately the perversion of incentive-based care too often skews the medical establishment toward making recommendations and decisions on our behalf that are better for them than for us. It’s nice to say the healthcare system is broken, but the real conspiracy is that there isn’t one because this broken system is actually working by design and exactly as it was planned. Buckle up and enjoy the show. Learn more about David on LinkedIn.
