Hint: single-payer won’t fix America’s health care spending. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Americans don't drive up the price by consuming more health care. They don't visit the doctor more than other developed countries: http://international.commonwealthfund.org/stats/annual_physician_visits/ But the price we pay for that visit - for a procedure - it costs way more: http://static1.squarespace.com/static/518a3cfee4b0a77d03a62c98/t/57d3ca9529687f1a257e9e26/1473497751062/2015+Comparative+Price+Report+09.09.16.pdf The price you pay for the same procedure, at the same hospital, may vary enormously depending on what kind of health insurance you have in the US. That's because of bargaining power. Government programs, like Medicare and Medicaid, can ask for a lower price from health service providers because they have the numbers: the hospital has to comply or else risk losing the business of millions of Americans. There are dozens of private health insurance providers in the United States and they each need to bargain for prices with hospitals and doctors. The numbers of people private insurances represent are much less than the government programs. That means a higher price when you go to the doctor or fill a prescription. Uninsured individuals have the least bargaining power. Without any insurance, you will pay the highest price.

In which John discusses the complicated reasons why the United States spends so much more on health care than any other country in the world, and along the way reveals some surprising information, including that Americans spend more of their tax dollars on public health care than people in Canada, the UK, or Australia. Who's at fault? Insurance companies? Drug companies? Malpractice lawyers? Hospitals? Or is it more complicated than a simple blame game? (Hint: It's that one.)

“America is a place where people have freedom to move where they want,” says filmmaker Jason DaSilva “At least that’s how it’s supposed to be.” But as DaSilva shows in his new Op-Doc, “Mapping the Disability Trap,” the way healthcare works in the United States can end up denying people with disabilities that freedom. The film follows DaSilva on a spirited investigation of a maddening Catch-22 that prevents him from moving to another state to be closer to his son — and still get the care that his multiple sclerosis requires. In a sense the film is a heartbreaking expansion of DaSilva’s previous Op-Doc, “The Long Wait,” which showed in excruciating (and humorous) detail how hard it is to get around New York City in a wheelchair.

The lower house of US Congress is due to vote on a Republican healthcare bill on Thursday. Many conservatives are against the proposed legislation because they say it doesn't go far enough in repealing President Obama's signature healthcare plan, the Affordable Care Act. But opposition Democrats say it goes too far, warning it will leave tens of millions of Americans without access to affordable medical care.

When I consider purchasing an individual health insurance plan for myself or my family, do I have any financial obligations beyond the monthly premium and annual deductible? Answers: It depends on the plan, but some plans have the following cost-sharing elements that you should be aware of. Co-Payments: Some plans include a co-payment, which is typically a specific flat fee you pay for each medical service, such as $30 for an office visit. After the co-payment is made, the insurance company typically pays the remainder of the covered medical charges. Deductibles: Some plans include a deductible, which typically refers to the amount of money you must pay each year before your health insurance plan starts to pay for covered medical expenses. Coinsurance: Some plans include coinsurance. Coinsurance is a cost sharing requirement that makes you responsible for paying a certain percentage of any costs. The insurance company pays the remaining percentage of the covered medical expenses after your insurance deductible is met. Out-of-pocket limit: Some plans include an out-of-pocket limit. Typically, the out-of-pocket limit is the maximum amount you will pay out of your own pocket for covered medical expenses in a given year. The out-of-pocket limit typically includes deductibles and coinsurance. But, out-of-pocket limits don't typically apply to co-payments. Lifetime maximum: Most plans include a lifetime maximum. Typically the lifetime maximum is the amount your insurance plan will pay for covered medical expenses in the course of your lifetime. Exclusions & Limitations: Most health insurance carriers disclose exclusions & limitations of their plans. It is always a good idea to know what benefits are limited and which services are excluded on your plan. You will be obligated to pay for 100% of services that are excluded on your policy. Beginning September 23, 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (health care reform) begins to phase out annual dollar limits. Starting on September 23, 2012, annual limits on health insurance plans must be at least $2 million. By 2014 no new health insurance plan will be permitted to have an annual dollar limit on most covered benefits. Some health insurance plans purchased before March 23, 2010 have what is called "grandfathered status." Health Insurance Plans with Grandfathered status are exempt from several changes required by health care reform including this phase out of annual limits on health coverage. If you purchased your health insurance policy after March 23, 2010 and you're due for a routine preventive care screening like a mammogram or colonoscopy, you may be able to receive that preventive care screening without making a co-payment. You can talk to your insurer or your licensed eHealthInsurance agent if you need help determining whether or not you qualify for a screening without a co-payment. There are five important changes that occurred with individual and family health insurance policies on September 23, 2010. Those changes are: 1. Added protection from rate increases: Insurance companies will need to publically disclose any rate increases and provide justification before raising your monthly premiums. 2. Added protection from having insurance canceled: An insurance company cannot cancel your policy except in cases of intentional misrepresentations or fraud. 3. Coverage for preventive care: Certain recommended preventive services, immunizations, and screenings will be covered with no cost sharing requirement. 4. No lifetime maximums on health coverage: No lifetime limits on the dollar value of those health benefits deemed to be essential by the Department of Health and Human Services. 5. No pre-existing condition exclusions for children: If you have children under the age of 19 with pre-existing medical conditions, their application for health insurance cannot be declined due to a pre-existing medical condition. In some states a child may need to wait for the state's open-enrollment period before their application will be approved.

If there's one debate you can't avoid today it's what do about the US health insurance. While many countries around the world have some form of nationalized, government run healthcare most people in the US have their healthcare provided by their employer. Why is that the case? Well the answer has to do with a strange history of the marketing of makeup, the wage and price controls instituted by FDR during World War II, and the threat of Communism during Truman’s Presidency and the 1950's.

The CEO of health insurer Cigna, David Cordani, says the problem with America's healthcare system is that most of the money is being spent on intervention after people already are sick. Cordani believes we need to spend more money and resources keeping people healthy in the first place. Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, science, retail, and more. Subscribe to our channel and visit us at: http://www.businessinsider.com/ BI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/businessinsider/ BI on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/businessinsider/ BI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider -------------------------------------------------- Following is a transcript of the video: Sara Silverstein: And do you think it makes sense at all for healthcare to be tied to employers anymore given how much our workforce has changed? David Cordani: Yeah so in the United States greater than 50% of Americans today get their health services support through an employer. That, that is a manifestation from a long time ago post World War II wage controls that existed, but, but we are where we are. Answer to your question is yes, I do. And the reason why is: an employer actually has a vested interest in helping to keep their employees healthy, and productive, and present from a work standpoint. Two, the worksite and the culture of an employer create some mechanisms to engage an individual, ways to communicate, ways to provide on-site care, ways to provide peer support, program support, etc. So there's incentive alignment, there's culture you could pull against and support it, and then there's delivery mechanism. So we think the answer is yes, and we have a ton of bright spots where we could point to employers that have innovated with us and we've innovated with them. And their employees and therefore their business is better off and those employees family members are better off because they're getting better, more comprehensive healthcare. Silverstein: And what do you think makes America different? Why are we spending so much on healthcare? Can you point to one thing that like our policies, or something in America that is a problem? Cordani: Yeah, so our system is quite different, right? We're a global company, we do business all over the world. So we're able to see systems in the most developed OECD countries and developing countries around the world. There's multiple differences. First and foremost, the United States is the largest sick care interventionist system in the world. We spend the majority of our money and resources addressing people once they're sick. We need to spend some more of our resources keeping people healthy in the first case, and identifying people who are at risk of health events and lowering those health risks. Some other countries do that better through social service support, poor community based health support, etc. Secondly, we have more specialists and more hospitals per capita than any other OECD countries and less primary care, be it OBGYN, pediatrician, family practitioners, and, and we need to moderate that a little bit, to, again, help coordinate the whole person on the front end. There's trade-offs in the way we've built our system. As a company we've had great success partnering with physicians through what we c--all, “Collaborative Accountable Care” relationships, we have 375 of which that are up and running with physicians, and another 125 with hospitals, and working more comprehensively. But in a nutshell, we wait too long in terms of trying to fix somebody once they're sick, as opposed to engage on the front-end and keep people healthy in the first place, that's where Cigna expends a lot of resources. Secondly, we spend a lot more money on the high cost intervention, as opposed to enabling the primary care physician, the geriatrician, the pediatrician, to have more resources to help to coordinate care for individuals. And we have a different pricing scheme relative to some of our services, be they pharmaceutical or otherwise, versus other parts of the world.

please subscribe to our channel for more videos! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUT2dLC-nsm36IzOkemXRbA Why health insurance is so expensive? Individual medical policies are like individual life insurance policies—they generally become more expensive with age, and with health care costs skyrocketing, so are the health insurance premiums. But that’s not the only reason that drives the health insurance premiums up. Medical Costs are the main factor that drives the premium of health insurance up. For example Federal government spent 23% this year on healthcare cost and only 14% on education. So it's no surprise that along with increased health care cost comes increased health insurance premiums. But why? Why health insurance and healthcare costs are so expensive? Let’s start with the basics. Insurance is a bit like a gamble between you and the insurance company. The company bets that they'll take in more money in premiums than they have to pay out in benefits. You're paying a premium every month just in case something happens. If there are many sick people that buy insurance and use the benefits, what happens is the insurance companies have to pay more than they get in premiums. As a result, the insurance companies have to increase the premium so they can keep up with paying the claims. Now, let’s look at the fact why the healthcare costs are expensive. There are so many reasons why health insurance is expensive, but let’s start with the fact that the cost of medical school training and education is ridiculous, putting up a huge barrier to entry, essentially making it required that doctors are paid extremely well in order to justify the high price of the education. Other factors that make health insurance so expensive include the demand for the latest technology and the high cost of malpractice insurance that medical providers must purchase. Another reason for the expensive health insurance is that healthcare providers game the system to earn even more money than they already do. For instance, drug companies are giving co-pay coupon cards to patients to lower their out-of-pocket expenses so that they choose the drug companies' brand drugs over generic prescriptions. In most cases, the patient generally chooses the drug with the lower co-payment even though it costs the insurance company a lot more when the patient uses name-brand drugs over generic versions, which will eventually increase the cost of insurance premiums that these patients, or their employers, will have to pay. –Health insurance providers have to share the cost of preexisting conditions. Due to the Affordable Care Act ruling, no one can be turned away from getting health insurance due to a preexisting condition. As I mentioned in the beginning of the video, this means the cost is distributed to everyone. It also means that everyone need to buy health insurance. On the other hand, I personally believe that in the long run, if everyone buys health insurance, this should normalize the cost and stop it from going up every year. Also, let’s face it - whether people have health insurance or not, if they get sick where do they go? ….. Most likely to the emergency room. Emergency care is very expensive. In most cases this is not even necessary. And here goes the cost of health care--- up, up and up. There are other factors that contribute to the expensive health insurance costs. If you would like to add other reasons to the list, please feel free to comment under the video! As always, thanks for watching and please consider subscribing to our channel!

George Halvorson has seen a lot of what works -- and what doesn't -- throughout his career in the American health care system. Most notably, he's been the CEO and chairman of Kaiser Permanente, the huge not-for-profit insurance plan that includes its own hospitals and clinics, for more than a decade. Throughout his tenure at Kaiser Permanente, which just ended in December, Halvorson talked bluntly about the deficiencies of the U.S. model, particularly with its costs, its "perverse incentives" for providers and whether those incentives lead to bad choices -- and sometimes worse outcomes -- for patients. Halvorson is known for trying to put into practice what Kaiser and its leadership preach: He put an emphasis on prevention (with a special focus on the epidemics of obesity and diabetes), coordinated care for some 9 million consumers, electronic medical records, and limiting patients to seeing doctors and specialists only within the Kaiser network HMO plan (which includes 37 hospitals and 17,000 doctors in more than half a dozen states). It's the largest plan in California with 40 percent of the employer market and it's earned revenues of $50 billion a year. In many ways, Kaiser has been seen as a pioneer in the battle over health reform -- and a model for some of those very reasons. But Kaiser has also been the subject of serious criticism with some who have been worried about their limits of choice (including for specialists) and, more recently, for the costs of its premiums. And it, too, has not been able to hold its overall costs down as low as executives had hoped. Halvorson's new book "Don't Let Health Care Bankrupt America" examines the health system and tries to offer solutions based on what's he's seen over the years. In this extra online conversation with Judy Woodruff, Halvorson discusses some of the big differences he sees between the U.S. and other countries around the world. Halvorson also wrote about this topic in his book with sections like "We Pay Primary Care Doctors Half as Much Money" and "We Have the Highest Hospital Costs in the World." You can watch that conversation here.

Well, we already know the answer. Just ask America’s veterans—they’ve had government-run health care for decades. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (known as the VA) runs the largest hospital and health care system in America. The VA employs over 340,000 people—twice the size of the Marine Corps. And it has a $180 billion annual budget, making it the second largest department in the Federal Government. Only the Department of Defense budget is bigger. The VA is a true single-payer health care system. It runs over 150 hospitals and 1,400 community-based clinics across all 50 states. The doctors, nurses, administrators – everyone that works for the VA – is a government employee. The system actively serves some 7 million patients—one-third of the 21 million veterans alive in the U.S. today. Sounds impressive, right? But for the past few decades—and especially for veterans of the war in Vietnam, as well as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, where I served—the VA has been an abysmal failure: inefficient, bureaucratic and sometimes deadly. Among veterans, horror stories about the VA abound. These stories were tragically brought to light in 2014, when whistleblowers in Phoenix revealed that 1,700 veterans there had waited an average of 115 days just to receive an initial appointment. According to the VA’s official policy, that wait time should have been no more than 14 days. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the Phoenix VA then lied about it, releasing falsified waiting lists to the public to cover its tracks. Phoenix turned out to be the norm, not the exception. The VA’s inspector general found systemic problems across the country. In Fort Collins, Colorado, for example, clerks were instructed to falsify records to show that doctors were seeing more patients than they actually were. In Columbia, South Carolina, delays in diagnosis and treatment directly led to the deaths of multiple patients. The VA program there had nearly 4,000 backlogged appointments despite a $1 million grant earmarked to reduce delays. And in the VA’s hospital in Pittsburgh, in 2011 and 2012, there was an outbreak of Legionnaires’ Disease that officials knew about for more than a year before informing patients. At least six veterans died as a result. The Obama Administration’s own Deputy Chief of Staff, Rob Nabors, revealed that VA health care has a “corrosive culture” with “significant” and “systemic failures.” The politicians’ response to this debacle? Spend more money -- a lot more money. The VA’s budget has almost doubled since 2009. They’ve hired 100,000 new people in the past decade. Wait times have actually gone up, yet not one administrator was fired for the wait-list scandal.

The United States health system falls short, bluntly declares the Commonwealth Fund in its recent report, “Mirror, Mirror 2017: International Comparison Reflects Flaws and Opportunities for Better US Health Care.” The study compares the US to ten other high-income countries. The US is by far the top spender, but sinks to the bottom when it comes to measures of outcome, access, and equity. The three nations that rank highest in overall health system performance – United Kingdom, Australia, and the Netherlands – all provide universal coverage. In contrast, poorer nations such as Rwanda show dramatic decreases in child and maternal mortality and increases in life span. What can the US learn from other approaches?

What you need to know about how women fare under the Republican healthcare plan. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Republicans in the Senate are doing their best to repeal and replace Obamacare, as they've promised to do for years. But the bill they put out this week would hurt many of the people they vowed to protect, especially women. The bill slashes Medicaid funding and defunds Planned Parenthood-- both of which would take away prenatal, maternity, and reproductive care from millions of women. These cuts couldn't come at a worse time-- the United States is one of the only developed countries in the world with rising maternal death rate, with more than half of childbirth deaths coming from easily preventable conditions that would become even more widespread if women on Medicaid lose their coverage.

Runaway U.S. healthcare costs are reflected in the annual premiums of employer-sponsored health insurance plans. The average premium for family coverage was nearly $19,000 in 2017 — more than triple the premium in 1999. The worker’s share jumped from $1,500 to $5,700 — almost four times higher. In the non-group insurance market, the Affordable Care Act shifted some of the cost of private insurance to the federal government. That helped millions of people but did little to control overall prices that had been skyrocketing for years. Learn More Here: http://www.connectthedotsusa.com/medi...

Finding low cost Health Care Insurance is now easy. With http://BetterHealthInsurancePrices.com/compare you can instantly view plans side-by-side so you can choose the best option that meets your needs and budget. Learn about the 5 quickest ways to lower your health care insurance premium. 1. Adopt a healthy lifestyle Living a healthy life has many benefits. Your healthy lifestyle can easily help you in bringing down the health insurance premium. Exercise regularly, eat healthy diet, avoid smoking and heavy drinking — and your visits to the doctor will surely be minimized. The healthier you are, the lesser you are represented as a risk for the insurance company. 2. Shop for the best available price One of the best options to keep your premium lowest is to go out and shop around for the health care policy. This will ensure that you find the best available policy that fits in your budget. Do a thorough research before investing in any policy. You can get information from your friends and relatives or even Internet. 3. Take up plans with higher deductibles Insurance plans with higher deductibles tend to have lower premiums. Typically, deductible is the amount you are expected to pay toward hospital, doctor, and other medical bills. Taking up a plan with a higher deductible may not be a universally applicable idea. If you're generally healthy and do not fall ill very frequently, then you can take up this plan. This way you can keep your premium at a lower rate and avail basic health care facilities as well. But, if you have a history of some major consistent illness, avoid taking this plan. 4. Take up a policy early in your life The premium varies to a great extent with the age of the person. Try and get a policy as early in your life as you can. For example, if you buy a policy at the age of 25, then you'll have to pay lesser premium but, if you go for the same policy at the age of 50 you'll end up paying a raised premium amount. 5.
