I was glad that you answered the phone. I know I made a good choice choosing you as my broker and applying with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona. The more I think about it, the more I want to be with a company that has widespread recognition and is everywhere. So thanks again for everything!

Thank you.

ObamaCare, Study Misrepresented


President Obama and Peter Orszag said many times before the new law was passed that cutting health care spending will actually make people healthier. The reasoning is that by cutting out ineffective treatments and standardizing care that works, many will be healthier. We were told that there is a lot of waste in health care, maybe as much as $700 billion a year! Imagine 700 stacks of $1000 bills each 364 feet up in the air, that’s $700 billion. Does anyone actually believe there is so much waste? No. It’s a made up number to help sell ObamaCare.

Dartmouth Atlas Health Care did a study which was quoted time and again by the president and others while selling ObamaCare. It compares regions of the country and the costs of similar medical care, and prices vary widely. The president argued that these widely varying prices are proof positive of  the best and the worst care in the system. But the truth is that the study had nothing to do with quality of care, https://higginscompanies.com/health-insurance/a-few-thoughts-on-health-insurance/. It was a study about varying costs of similar procedures within Medicare, nothing to do with quality of that care. In fact, the study actually shows the opposite of what President Obama was saying. Cutting funding will result in worse outcomes for patients, not better.
