  1. What a cool video!

    The biggest point that stuck with me was the statement that “if we were transparent and open with pricing we wouldn’t even need networks.”
    That would be awesome for the patient.
    Also, the example about ACA that the top cancer treatment providers being MD Anderson and the Mayo clinic would be out of pocket expenses is a catastrophe.

    This is a movement that I think a lot of people can get behind both healthcare professionals and those who just simply have a vested interest.
