Health insurance is expensive because healthcare is expensive. A disturbing value equation is formed when consumers are isolated from the actual cost of healthcare. Every healthcare consumer is personally responsible for a small portion of our country’s total healthcare spending, and individual users have the power to turn this troubling value equation around.
