Curly Knew…

I contend health plan networks and the multi-industry infrastructure that supports them, are simply a cartel propped up by unwise healthcare policy. They are definitely not part of a healthy functioning free-market.

Look carefully at the characteristics of how health plan networks operate and follow the money flow from start to finish. What holds it all together?  Despite its byzantine complexity and 40+ years of being entrenched into our national psyche, there is one linchpin that holds the whole perverse system together. Any guesses? What’s “The One Thing”?
