Healthcareonomics for Employers – Episode 2

IN THIS EPISODE: Tom DiLiegro joins me to discuss where Armour thyroid medication comes from, and how the price of this all-natural substance gets outrageously inflated when bought using a health insurance plan.

We also take a look at the folley of corporate wellness programs, and how employers who offer Biometric Screenings to their employees are handing health insurers the data they need to raise premiums.

Tune in to the Healthcareonomics for Employers series to hear health care expert Dr. Kevin Wacasey interview health insurance and employee benefits specialists.

This episode’s guest is Tom DiLiegro, the owner of Benefit Advisors of Charleston, South Carolina. Like many other employee benefits experts who are disrupting the traditional health insurance model, Tom is dedicated to helping employers make better decisions when it comes to saving money on both their health care, as well as their health care coverage.

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
