Cracks in high-deductible/consumer-driven health plan models November 29, 2011

I’ve always been confused by the values highlighted by proponents of HDHPs. My logic has consistently been: (1) 75% of healthcare payments are made as the result of treating chronic diseases and, if/when, caught at the earliest stages can be cured, or mitigated. (2) Shifting initial plan expenses to patients, in the form of high deductibles, tends to prevent doctor visits/medical treatment thus negatively impacting the early discovery and treatment of disease. (I understand wellness checks are paid at 100%)

Here’s some real evidence our physicians will be the keys to unlocking our national health care cost/quality problems: http://tinyurl.com/7acns8o

I find it difficult to believe the authors of our upcoming healthcare reform could have crafted a worse future by design. This author has our coming reality zeroed in, the “change” of healthcare as we currently know it! http://tinyurl.com/86kkua2 This will not be the change we were looking for. Change isn’t always good, as the passengers and crew of the Titanic discovered on the night of April 15, 1912.

Can we change/amend this future?

My personal experiences in providing care for, and knowing the journey faced by, cancer sufferers is truly humbling. Under the term “courage” in the dictionary, an example should describe challenges faced by cancer patients undergoing cycles of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Cancer patients exhibit amazing courage in battling cancer.

Many times we see an exact opposite behavior exhibited by heart disease patients so clearly stated by this doctor.

Not to compare our coming health reform to Greece, however this describes the difficulty of “absolute equality” between the various elements of society.
