No article I have written has awakened more people than this Forbes pieceĀ Have PPO Networks Perpetrated The Greatest Heist In American History? — including benefits brokers who are supposed to know this stuff.

Countless benefits pros have told me this article changed the trajectory of their career. They couldn’t un-see what they’d read.

There’s lots of talk about surprise billing. Makes for good headlines but it’s chump change compared to UNsurprise billing enabled by PPOs that have enabled the greatest wealth transfer from the working & middle class to the wildly under-performing status quo healthcare system.

A dose of good news I wrote about in my book: In the real market, healthcare costs are flat. “Real” = the massive, growing direct contract and cash pay market thanks to PPO abuses and high deductible health plans (over half the workforce has >$1000 deductible — i.e., greater than the entire savings of over half of households).
