American Healthcareonomics

Why is it that a country that prides itself on individual liberty and free enterprise, should have a health care system that is so expensive, reactive, and restrictive, yet doesn’t keep its citizens healthy?

Well the answer involves something my dad used to tell me – that people will do anything to make a buck.

And there are lots of profits being made off the American health care system as it stands now.

But the problems – and their solutions – are a lot simpler than you may realize.

I’m Dr. Kevin Wacasey, and I want to change health care – by changing the way you think about health care. So join me and we’ll explore the crazy, mixed-up world of Healthcareonomics.


It’s not the COSTS of health care that are outrageous…it’s the CHARGES.

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
