Episode 62-Shane Foss on meeting the healthcare needs of the underserved-Building My Legacy with Lois Sonstegard

Welcome to Episode 62 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast Hooray Health founder and CEO Shane Foss talks about how the lack of transparency in healthcare hurts part-time workers without health insurance as well as the many insured employees with high-deductible plans. To meet these needs, Hooray Health has created a national network of retail clinics and urgent care providers to offer affordable basic healthcare services for everyday medical needs.

“One in five Americans is sent to collections every year for an unpaid medical bill less than $600,” Shane explains, pointing out that the real problem is access to basic everyday and urgent care. With the COVID-19 pandemic, more employers have come to realize that, if their employees can’t afford to go to the doctor when they’re feeling sick, it creates problems for everyone.

So if you want to know:

  • The real issue that the Affordable Care Act – and even a single payer system – doesn’t address
  • About new options for healthcare coverage for your part-time employees and why it’s something more employers are considering
  • How “bundled” care can reduce employer costs by as much as 60 percent
  • Why telemedicine has become one of the biggest trends in the healthcare industry
