On Tuesday November 27, at Java Live, Faribault, MN, I introduced Kip Sullivan to a local gathering of citizens. He presented for about an hour on many topics of current and future health care issues. These topics included:
…A history of the U. S. Health Insurance System
…Waste, Fraud and High Fees within the Health Care system
…Debunking the myth that the rising cost of health care is a result of malpractice suits
…Why high-deductible policies and tax credits won't work
…Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) – and why they are not the answer
…Why Medicare for everyone is the best plan
The discussion after was lively and diverse, Rep. Patti Fritz was present also and talked about the good work she has been doing in the area of long term care and thanked Kip for his work.
Kip Sullivan has dedicated his life to these issues and is extremely well versed in the history of health care insurance. His predictions give fair warning and should be considered. His ideas give legislators a lot to think about.
His book, "The Health Care Mess – How We Got Into It and How We'll Get Out of It," is a good read loaded with information. READ THE BOOK! It will open your eyes and move you to action.
