A debate on reimagining health insurance: Video from MedCity Invest Digital Health

The INVEST Digital Health Virtual conference, held in partnership with healthcare industry association Medical Alley, included conversations spanning behavioral health, the future of health insurance and how hospitals are addressing the pandemic.

We recorded each session and now you can check it out on video!

The latest installment focuses on the future of health insurance in the panel: VC Versus Entrepreneur: A Debate on How the Future of Health Insurance Can Be Reimagined

In this debate, an entrepreneur argues that consumers are ready to be active healthcare consumers, and better insurance design – one that illuminates treatment options with clear prices so consumers know the cost upfront and can make better decisions in advance of care – is the way to get there. A venture capitalist maintains that the world of insurance is indeed so complicated that no amount of improved design will do and that consumers need advocates to make prudent decisions that ultimately lower costs overall and for them.
