Does Crowd-Sourcing Democratize the Health Care / Insurance System?

Where Wall Street’s Legends and Financial-Technology Pioneers Unite

[By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA]

DEM white shirt

As a health insurance agent for more than a decade, certified planner and financial advisor for 15 years, medical provider for more than two decades; and Jesuit trained public health advocate throughout my entire career; I understand the concept of health, economic, education and working-class disparities. This includes utilitarianism, healthcare rationing and the allocation of scare resources [time, treasure, and talents] in society.

Yet, there is a new and emerging related ethical concept which no one seems to address. It appears to be a public “good”, but upon deeper reflection may achieve just the opposite effect as the law of unintended consequences takes sway.

So, am a “thought-leader” and early idea-adopter; or just a moral and philosophical luddite?

***

Today, we in the healthcare industrial complex stand on the precipice of our next frontier in finance – one that is aimed at instilling a culture of internet connectivity, crowd-sourcing and health care finance.

As opposed to relying on large private health insurance, state institutions and/or government entities like Medicare, Medicaid, SHIPS, and/or the PP-ACA for capital; SOME private citizens, non-insured patients, and even emerging business entities have begun turning directly to individual investors to fulfill their healthcare financing needs.

Shifting trends in mass communications, advancements in technology and regulatory overhauls have now made it possible to raise large sums of money by pooling it from the masses. This new “crowd-finance” constitution is not only resolving inefficiencies and inequality in conventional capital market business structure, it is empowering a new generation of retail products and trading platforms that are essentially reuniting the “people’s capital” with growth, yield and innovation. I believe this democratization is a good thing.

And, online marketplaces are presently revolutionizing the way people invest, and making it easier for the common-man-in-the street, patients, or other investor to obtain the yield typically swallowed by insurance and banking establishments as well as to access the deal flow previously only attainable through brokerage or insurance company relationships.

For example, the SEC’s recent promulgation of Reg A+ coupled with a sound venture exchange framework is leading us toward a more level playing field for both smaller issuers and investors. Instead of serving as an exit strategy for the financially privileged, through Reg A+, the investing public will once again be able to partake in the appreciation of coveted growth stocks; or personal aggrandizement to pay off medical providers, hospitals, or insurance companies or various health insurance debts.

New micro-investing apps are now emerging to help even minute sums of capital invest in institutional-grade products via retirement vehicles – ultimately helping convert a nation of spenders into a nation of savers. OR, are they?

Assessment

And so; does crowd-sourcing REALLY democratize the health care / Insurance system? OR, does it promote a type of moral hazard, risk tolerance, or a certain loss of “herd-immunity” against the purchase or proper use of health insurance; when others are desperately trying to pursue personal responsibility.

In other words, insurance is based on the law-of-large-numbers. And, this idea may disrupt that mathematical actuarial concept; thus skewing the bell-shaped-curve and hurting us all.
