  • Napkin #1
  • Health care in America is a business governed by a simple equation: I get sick. My Doc fixes me. My Doc gets paid. 3
  • In the last several years there’s been a shift in the equation: Insurance jumped in between me and my doctor. Insurance now rations my treatment and health costs. 4
  • That happened because health care is really two different businesses: There’s the business … and then there’s of providing health… the business of providing payment. 5
  • I’m in the middle. Me, my health, and my money sit in between these two businesses. 6
  • When I’m healthy, insurance loves me: I pay premiums that insurance collects, and they don’t have to pay anything back. 7
  • When I’m sick, providers love me: Through my insurance, I pay Doctors, hospitals, and pharma for their products and services. 8
  • These two businesses hate each other. (Ultimately, I’m the only source of money for both.) 9
  • They have conflicting interests and fight over my money. (It’s a zero-sum game.) Providers like to prescribe Insurers charge more new and expensive (and allow less) to keep treatments to keep money money flowing in. flowing in. 10
  • As the providers and insurers fight, my costs keep going up. (Bankrupting me and my employer.*) I’m the only one adding money INTO the equation, so I get squeezed. *more on this later. 11
  • Now government steps into the picture: Government is worried: people and businesses are both too squeezed. 12
  • Government thinks most of the changes are on the insurance side: Almost all legislation being debated impacts the insurance side of the equation. 13
  • Next napkin: What health care reform is really about. (It isn’t health care.) 14
