Benefits with Friends - E14 with our guest Aaron Witwer
Manage episode 348879775 series 3423178
Lou and Aaron had a great conversation on the topic of the 'Functionally Uninsured'.
Managed Care's promise of enhancing care and controlling insurance costs clearly expired long away. Instead, it was replaced with Pay More, Get Less and numerous flawed strategies. Employers and their members fell victim to a health care and insurance system that on the surface seem broken. A keen eye understanding that they are, in fact, working exactly as designed to the benefit of these two monopolies.
Aaron discussed the distinction between equity and equality and how the plans offered by many employers today leave the lowered earners in dire straits.
In fact, an overwhelming majority of hard-working Americans have less than $1,000 in the back, yet they have deductibles and out-of-pocket costs 5 to 10 times that each year.
One solution that Aarons firm, E Powered Benefits, has had great success with is Direct Primary Care which eliminates barriers to care and offers a superior patient/doctor experience.
Thanks for listening!
