    This is going to be a great venture. I am excited to see where it goes. Been following since the announcement. I also follow other companies in the healthcare sector like this one. http://bitly.com/2FRn2Wh
    According to [1] Deloitte, global health care spending is projected to reach $8.7 trillion by 2020. This growing, multi-trillion-dollar industry is evolving to meet the demand of global consumers. The way people receive health care is evolving. Advan

    How do you make healthcare more affordable while working with the for profit Insurers and PBMs? There are far too many adding costs to what should be a relationship between you and your physicians. How much do you think we save if the Insurers and PBMs are taken out of the delivery of healthcare? The US Congress has thrown the American taxpayer under the bus and kicked most seniors to the curb with egregious corruption. U.S. citizens pay more than twice as much for health care and common prescription drugs than in countries like Canada, Germany and Australia. Average HC costs in America are about $10k per person and that puts us on track to spend almost $45T/10 years. While HR676 would cost about $32T/10 years. Do the math.

    I would be interested in learning how Haven plans to combat the biggest problem in health care - rampant litigation with exorbitant settlements.

    problem is employees of Buffet and Dimon make big money. The people who will really need help are average working stiffs.
    but I hope they are successful.

    I wonder who will make up the shortfall for the projected 1.2 million workers leaving the for profit insurance company's ? That's right, you guessed it. The remaining people on those insurance company's books. And I thought last years 62% increase was bad. lol

    This will not end well. Amazon does nothing unless they can line their pockets with a fistful of cash...Health care rationing for procedures will be the order of the day.

    They say they want to work with existing players. I say this likely is a mistake. These people for years have been conditioned to believing their out sized salaries from the grotesquely bloated healthcare industry is what they deserve. A system without caps on costs and caps on benefits WILL NOT work.

    I have not been to a doctor in about 40 years because I go only when I am sick. I am 72 and still shovel my own Wisconsin snow and cut 3 acres of lawn with a walk-behind mower. I have never had health insurance except for the mandatory Medicare I must now have. I am sick of people wining about the cost of health care when they waste their money going to the doctor for little things like colds. Grow up, folks!
