Episode 31

Getting Down to the Business of Healthcare

Hey Yah, No friends, we’re back, and we’re ready to get down to business! Business and healthcare, that is.

Miya and Tina are kicking things off this season with a spirited discussion about rising healthcare costs and how employers are starting to get creative in footing the bill. What are the pros and cons of these new models? What’s best for the patients/employees? Who’s going to take care of the population outside of this system? And what about employers having access to your health data? (Miya is creeped out by this, Tina disagrees!)

Tina and Miya take a moment to break down what these models look like and who stands to gain from them- or lose out completely.
