I'm glad. I think our insurance and healthcare providers need to be held accountable. Why should a c-section at one hospital cost 10k and at another it's 16k?! Why should we pay increasing premiums for insurance only to be dropped because of fine print when we need support the most? It's insane.
Hopefully this helps drive more reasonable costs, whether you're insured or not, as well as wellness programs. I currently have a high-deductible plan with a HSA, which works ok for me. Biggest issues are the outrageous RX prices and the inability to predict costs if I require a "non-preventative" office visit or service.
Clearly there is work to be done. I don't see an immediate effect on recruiting until things get a little further along.
