HSA’s, and Why Health insurance Can’t Be Sold Across State Lines

Did you know that a Health Savings Account is the most tax-advantaged account that you can get nowadays? It is, because you fund it with pre-tax money that can earn tax-free dividends over time. And best of all – you don’t pay any taxes on the money you withdraw from an HSA, to pay for health care. And given today’s high deductibles and out-of-pocket responsibilities that most insured patients face, it makes sense to have an HSA.

In this HEALTHCAREONOMICS podcast, listen in as Dean Clancy (the founder of HSA’s For All) and I discuss HSA’s, as well as three very good reasons why health insurance should not – and indeed, cannot – be sold across state lines…

Physician. Health Insurance Agent. Author. Health care humorist. Medical satirist. Disruptor. At your service. My name is Kevin Wacasey, and I’ve been practicing medicine since 1994. When I graduated from medical school, I took an oath to do no harm to my patients. To me, that includes financial harm. But since health insurance took over health care over 40 years ago, health care prices have skyrocketed. And despite what we’re told by the media every day, it isn’t the costs of health care that are outrageous; it’s the charges. So if you’ve ever wondered why we spend so much on health insurance and health care, then come along and join me as I explore the crazy world of Healthcareonomics. Health care doesn’t have to be expensive. Let me show you how. For speaking opportunities and to pass along your questions/comments, please email me at drw@healthcareonomics.com.
