I chuckle when I hear someone say "Everyone knows that _______". And if you repeat it enough times and send it in enough chain emails it must be true?
Here's one: 'The government cannot run anything well". Then comes out this report. Turns out the VA delivered health services with cost increases of .3% annually per enrollee . Medicare's increase was 4.4% per year. And how much have your insurance premium's been rising? Employer's went up 5% last year. Worth a closer look.
Here's another one: "Healthcare in Canada is so bad, a large number come to the US for treatment". Turns out that isn't true.
Before you make assurtions take the time and go through multiple sources. You will make better business decisions. Getting to the root causes and solutions is time consuming, but well worth it.
