As I write this in early 2017, there is much chatter about the potential repeal and replacement of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) commonly known as Obamacare. I was motivated to read this book to get beyond the myopic hysteria a...
oposing real-world, implementable solutions. In her new book Urgent Care, Wilson offers ten cures for America’s ailing healthcare system. The truth is, that in trying to ensure access to high quality, affordable healthcare for all Americans and improve the healthcare delivery records of underperforming hospitals, we have sacrificed many of the things that made America’s health system the greatest one in the world. What is the future of healthcare in America if we don’t change our current trajectory? Our current path leads to a future where fat, rich insurance companies continue to squeeze service providers and suppliers, where middle class people cannot afford to pay for care, and where the reality of doctors struggling pushes them to seek better opportunities outside of medicine. Urgent Care examines where we are, how we got here, and the future of healthcare delivery if we do nothing. It speaks to a wide variety of issues including: Up to 95% of every dollar you spend on insurance goes to fund insurance company costs, not patient care; shouldn’t it be the opposite? This year, depending upon where you live, insurance companies are raising policy rates for families between 10% and 40%. While insurance companies are having record years and senior executives are getting record bonuses, healthcare suppliers and providers are being told they should not expect to receive any portion of this premium increase. How our current system will bankrupt our middle class. With insurance covering less and less, the cost of premiums escalating each year, and the cost of administering healthcare plans skyrocketing, why would any company continue to offer health insurance when the penalty under ACA guidelines to not do so is far less? Insurance models that work; catastrophic coverage for $5 a month with a $500 deductible—why is no one holding big insurer’s feet to the fire to match this? Solutions that address tax benefits, gifting programs, a realignment of Urgent Care Center function, medical services to incarcerated populations, as well as other programs and processes. How consumers can take back their power, and more. Healthcare in America can be fixed. In Urgent Care, combining healthcare law and practice with proven business strategies, and joining policy with the practical, Minda Wilson tells us how.
