Healthcare Stole the American Dream. Here’s how we take it back.
In this session, David introduces the idea that employers around the country, from all industries, are engaging in the healthcare business whether they know it or intend it. He will discuss the real reason employers are struggling to keep their business financials in check – healthcare. The rate of rising deductibles and out-of-pocket exposure far outweigh the wage growth for the average American and as healthcare costs continue to rise we do nothing to assist our populations with being able to afford their coverage, both in payroll contributions and cost share liability at the point of service. Contorno goes on to share that he and his colleagues are part of the problem. The insurance industry is at the crux of the problem and this session will dive into the details.
