In this episode Dave Chase, Co-Founder and CEO of Health Rosetta comes back on the show. Here Dave discusses the story of Forgotten Frank, the hypothetical middle America hardworking guy that has not seen a wage gain in over 20 years. Not because the employer isn’t spending a bunch more money on Frank, but because all of those dollars have been stolen away by the bloat and waste. Dave also does a deep dive into what the waste and bloat is, how Americans are sick of it, and how the pandemic has impacted it. He shares some real rays of hope in that healthcare is fixed, you just have to know where to find the fixes.. Luckily, Dave and Ron discuss where to find them.
