The healthcare problems in the USA are much bigger than insurance, but politicians mostly focus their energy and anger at insurance companies. Why? I asked Ben Krambeck, CEO of ClaimDoc.
First, consider how insurance works. No one expects their rusted-out Ford Pinto to be restored to its original state once they sign up for an auto insurance policy. No one buys a fixer-upper house, assuming their insurance policy will make relevant repairs, but health insurance is viewed differently. Why do we hold healthcare to a different standard?
Health insurance seems to be looked to as the primary method to make healthcare affordable, but that’s not insurance’s role. Why don’t we hear about hospitals charging $600 for latex gloves or medical providers inefficient billing methods? Why don’t we hear about bloated government programs and the FDA’s direct impact on our costs?

Ben Krambeck, CEO of ClaimDoc knows the inside of the healthcare system better than anyone. I asked him what is behind the increasing costs of healthcare? His deep knowledge of the industry shows that insurance is only a tiny part of the problem. He exposes the players, shows who is making record profits, and who is footing the bill (it’s you).
