2021 is off to a rough start, but we’ve got a couple of small things that don’t completely suck.
First, a new federal rule could help cut through one completely-ridiculous issue. Then, a listener describes how he headed off an insurance nightmare, using what he learned from this show.
Dan talked about the first story—a requirement that hospitals give us some information upfront about what a given service might cost us (after insurance, if we’ve got it)—in a short conversation with Niala Boodhoo for the daily-news podcast Axios Today.
You’ll find a LOT more detail on that rule in this story from reporter Celia Llopis-Jepsen (whose reporting about a $50,000 “air ambulance” ride formed the core of a recent episode about how we get squeezed by insurers on one side and providers on the other).
Here’s a transcript for this episode.
