Ep. 6 - Big Insurance
The FLATLINING Podcast
This week on the FLATLINING Podcast, Matthew and Ron discuss the nature of Big Insurance. You hear about Big Tech, Big Pharma, and, especially if it is an election year, you probably hear about Big Insurance. How did BlueCross and BlueShield, Cigna, UnitedHealthcare, and Aetna get to be as big as they are today? Are their sizes and profit margins driving the costs of healthcare up? What if we redistribute those profits? Listen to this episode of the FLATLINING Podcast to find out.
