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 drw@healthcareonomics.com.

    I was going to send this message as an email but for some reason it said that there was an error with it going through so I’ll just post it here:

    Dr. Wacasey,

    My name is Connor, and I am a junior in high school. I just finished your book “The Guide to Buying Health Insurance, and Health Care” and I thought it was fantastic. I picked up the book after I became very frustrated with my family’s poor heath insurance and expensive health care costs, or should I say charges. I am very interested in the economy and politics so naturally I wanted to find out why this was happening. My mom had talked to you before on Twitter, and you even helped her pick her health insurance plan last year so she told me that you’re book might be a good read. Even though I personally haven’t bought health insurance, nor do I even receive our health care bills, I was still able to fully understand the problem and the solution in your book, so fantastic job there.
    I feel like you discovered what should be the obvious solution to health care and health insurance, but most people for some reason can’t see it. The news, the consumers, they all get it wrong, most of the time. I only hope that your book reaches out to more people so that as a society we can fix this.

    In short, I just wanted you to know that your book has educated me, and I plan to educate others especially since I run a politics club at my school. You’re doing the right thing here, so keep up the good work. Soon enough there will be more people like me who will listen.


    • Hey, Connor,

      I think we need to send you to Washington to have a little reality chat with the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. But be careful, it’s a swamp! But keep spreading the word.

        I’ve been there, done that. I worked an internship last summer with the GOP and I’ve seen my fair share of Tom foolery. Politics is a whole different world. For now, I’ll stick to speaking out to my fellow classmates in my club.

        • Yep, I am afraid that whether it’s Democrats or Republicans ruling, Washington is still a nasty swamp. You’re probably right about communicating your message to your classmates. You can be the grassroots movement.
