Shopping for Health Care: How Consumer Can Use Purchasing Power to Get What They Need with Deb Gordon
"Welcome back to the outcomes rockets Sal Marquez here, and they have the privilege of hosting for the Second Time Miss Deb Gordon, she's spent her career trying to level the playing field for health care consumers haven't listened to the first podcasts with DAB. You've gotta go listen to it. It's all about the consumer and healthcare. She's all about you. She's all about your employees and how you can get the most for your healthcare dollar. She's the author of the healthcare consumers manifesto how to get the most for your money based on research she conducted as a senior fellow. At the Harvard Kennedy, School Center for Business and government she's a former health insurance executive and health care CEO. She's an aspen. Institute health innovators fellow and an Eisenhower fellow, her research and commentaries have appeared in USA Today, the Harvard Business Review blog, and on network open. She holds a B A in bioethics from Brown University and an MBA with distinction from Harvard Business School and I'm excited to dive into her work again around the consumer's manifesto deb such a privilege to have you back on. Hey, saw. Thanks so for having me back. Yeah, absolutely. So you've been busy. I have been busy. That's true. I spent probably a year doing research for this book and another year writing a not exactly that split but I spend a good two years of my life producing this baby and it is exciting to come back and tell you about it because when we first met, I was just starting to think about it. I was just starting the research and listening to what consumers had to say. So I'm excited to be back to talk more about it the same here and so dab you know obviously. So listeners goal isn't a DEB's podcast. This you get a deeper appreciation about her time as an insurance executive and what has inspired her work and focus in the consumer sphere but a little bit about the book. Dab. You know what's the focus area? What are the takeaways at a high level? Sure. So I wrote the book mainly to expose the human side of healthcare costs like what is really going on for people when we go to the doctor or were phasing an insurance decision and we have to pay. For it and I was really taken with the fact that so many people of all walks of life come to me and say because I used to work health insurance they know I know something about it and they just say what should I do and you know the most extraordinary people who've accomplished so much in their lives walk into my office at the Kennedy School at Harvard and alike, what health insurance should I buy and I. It just dawned on me that if people like that need help and it's Legitimate that they do. It's very confusing and can be overwhelming like what chance is you know everyone else have of making sense of these decisions. So that's the motivation that I I brought into the book and then in doing my research for it, I heard story after story of consumer. So real people who are trying to get value for their healthcare dollars whether they use those kind of terms or not I say like shopping for healthcare is a thing we could do people don't use those words and they don't even. Know what I'm talking about. But you know I interviewed people about their experiences spending money on healthcare and what I learned is that although it feels really foreign to put that into shopping terms or you know we know how to buy things but we don't know how to shop around in healthcare and. It doesn't mean we're not able to. That's I think the biggest takeaway is that we do actually have more power than we might even realize and that the first step is to just ask the question, what if what, if I could get what I needed? What do I need? Why do I need this? Is there an alternative and just almost like re imagine ourselves as a customer when it comes to healthcare this is Dr is nervous and unhappy by the way, but it's not a slight against doctors. It's just you know what I think consumers need for whatever reason we need permission almost to think of ourselves as entitled to get value for our healthcare dollars.

It has the word influenza because it used during the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic. It was aronie sleep thought this was a bacteria caused fluence and not the virus. We note today, but it turns out causes a terrible disease. And I would have to do the spinal tap on those kids, the lumbar punctures, you would see the poss coming out where Cerebrospinal fluid should be. And these children had terrible outcomes. They were either Daf or permanent intellectual injuries and some of the kids didn't make it and this took a tremendous emotional toll on, on the on the pediatric how staff as well. And that was a nineteen eighty seven nineteen eighty eight. By the time I finished, my residency a new vaccine at come online. That was developed in parallel at the national institutes health and in, in Rochester by another group and within three years that disease had vanished from the United States. It was a disease that we divide talked about to the next generation, a house staff purely for historic interest, so like the old timers would talk to me about the theory TATA's.

"Not if you remember. Brad, try the president is paranoid schizophrenic. Paranoiac? What are you gonna do? Oh, Lenny league. Thanks bye. People the way Mucci for six months. Okay. Now as far as what we do for a living. Yes, there's none better than the mooch. It's a whole lot entertainment. Oh, yeah. But if you want the White House to run a specific way, I don't know if mooch is your guy. Hey, if you saw this sort of new agreement that he wanted with the press. It seemed like he really wanted when he was the communications guy for a week and a half. Yeah. He wanted to sort of repair, whatever broken relationship. There was I don't know if you can repair it at this point. Between the press wants this guy. They're gonna do everything they can to try to get Trump out of office. That's their mission right now. And Trump loves to play ball with them. And it's just it's a it's a mutually beneficial hostile working environment between these two folks. And so I I don't know, man. I think it's time to consider bringing back to mooch why not just blow up the entire thing. Let's just have a complete circus. Whatever at this point. There's more to get to on that later on. What about the American couple stuck in Cuba dole? Gosh. Okay. So Kevin and his girlfriend. They went on vacation to Havana. They went on a cruise ship. Norwegian cruise line. There's a four night sale in the Caribbean. It's nice now they were going back to the doc what they thought was more than our ahead of the departure time, they get there though, and the ship is gone. Whoa. Bar said a wrote a complaint to the cruise company saying it was a frightening situation. We exchanged money, and we took a taxi to the airport. American Airlines told us they wouldn't take credit card quoted us four hundred sixty five dollars. We didn't have that much cash. They weren't they wound up being able to book a flight home. And so they're going after Norwegian cruise line now. But it seems like they're out of luck. Because Norwegian cruise line. They say we made multiple notes of the departure time changed because there was schedule. But we let everybody know multiple times in advance of this crusade, by the way update your schedule and the company's terms and conditions also point out that well shipboard time may differ from the port of call. And it's the responsibility to pay all expenses incurred all rejoin the ship in the event, they are left behind magic being left behind in Cuba, though. That's gotta be terrifying. Little dicey. Yeah. Well, they say this is why you want to get a good travel agent. You know, the other thing sometimes you look at a story like this. And you might have the reaction. How can you be that stupid? Yeah. Or maybe the reaction I could see that happening to me. Like what just happened? They did they told us. I didn't even hear it. Oh, wow. Well, this sucks help. No. Because I'm I'd be so paranoid that I'm going to get behind Cuba that I would probably just not even I'd get off the boat for about thirty minutes. Run back on wouldn't do that. Go have a sandwich and I'll go back on the boat. Have you ever been on like that? We got the stops in different places for a while never really wanted to be on a cruise. That's fun. Did at one time. Yeah. I had a good time. I just think it's a floating Petri dish. Okay. Well, I had a great that was the best week of eating in my life. The food was incredible. Isn't it on average you gain ten pounds on a cruise easily gain ten? It was I mean fantastic. And as much as you want it. Yeah. It was really good. Good time. Okay. Gotta get to another story. This is not a big surprise. I don't think we're talking about heavy screen time impacting children's brains. They're spending three hundred million dollars on a study. Now National Institute health, and it is showing that nine and ten year old kids spending more than seven hours a day using devices show signs of premature thinning of the cortex. The brains outermost layer, the processes sensory information. So it's actually had not just a emotional or mental wellbeing. Effect. It's actually damaging physical brain. Yes. Yeah. One of the doctors working on the project said, we don't know if it's being caused by the screen time. We don't yet know if it's a bad thing. The fact that it shows signs of premature thinning of the cortex from every other study we've had is not good. Yeah. That's sorta seems like those those words altogether in a row are not a positive thing. No. I mean, it if you have kids this is one of the things that gives you pause study after study after study. It also showed the kids who spend more than two hours a day on screen score worse on language and reasoning test. There's a whole thing on sixty minutes about this last night, which I usually DVR just haven't watched it yet so much good football. Anyway. Study involves scanning the brains of forty five hundred kids. And it eventually aims to show. Whether screen time is addictive. I would guess it is the researchers said, you know, we need several years to understand the long term outcomes. Yeah. So what do you do that? If you get a kid right now. Try to limit the screen time as possible. Yes. In many ways, the concern that investigators like I have is that we're sort of in the midst of a natural kind of uncontrolled experiment on the next generation of children. It's very true. Yes. Do you ever feel a just from video games just screen time? But from video games when you were the heaviest into it. This would Ben like what ten twelve years ago? Yeah. Maybe a little bit longer than that. Probably fifteen sixteen years ago. Looking back at it. Now, would you said you were addicted? When halo. I came out probably. 'cause I think I'd probably burned to summer playing it on all the difficulty levels. And then when I went outside and saw the sun for the first time in a week. There was like man I needed. Maybe I noticed it when I started having dreams about it. Maybe I needed it cut back on this. I mean, it's like fortnight right now. Which is I do believe bigger much bigger than halo was at its height. Yeah. Probably. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, you have professional athletes now getting minor injuries because they keep playing it so much. Yeah. Insane. I still think though man that that's it's even the video game thing is a little bit different than the social media because with social media paid social media, and you love video games. Well, no. But it's yes. Part of in part. But I think a lot of it is because you're interacting with other people more on social media. And now, I mean with video games. It's probably true to you.

Mitch shed lock is his name. He's an investment adviser. And he said on the air, tell me your secret because you shouldn't be looking the way you look tell me your secret. And of course, I didn't tell him everything. But he wanted a whole list of supplements. What do people do in your opinion to get started? In a program if they've never supplemented before. Well, some education they need to listen to George Noory needs to listen to dead doctors don't lie. The CD watch the DVD read the book. And of course, we have fourteen bestselling books. We have an issue. We have one of these some drives now was forty three CDs on it, and Tim DVD's, and we have a new documentary called the density in health, the doctors all Wall Street goes our research fifty years, very proud of that and professionally done by producers of documentaries and that just came out a couple of days ago. Good. And so it's a matter of education has invest a little time going to meetings and educate their families have little family meetings once a week just don't talk about bowling, and and scores it all games and that kind of stuff because you will add twenty five to fifty years.

It's a terrible thing and presented the original research on the opioid nineteen sixties when I was in Africa tranquilizing rhino and elephant because only five milligrams five milligrams. Okay would knock down eight six thousand pound white. Rhino bull and ten milligrams knock down fifteen thousand pounds, excuse me, African elephants, and I learned about all the antidotes and how to wake him back up and all kinds of stuff after we branded them and so forth. Two hundred of them using these opioids chase or overdosing on two milligrams. They should not be prescribed for human beings. Got the Email from Karl who said, George I cannot call in please ask doc wallet. For my uncle. I'm very concerned about him.

"And shadow. No, Kelly, Dr price. Thank you so much for joining us here on health talk. How are you today? I'm great. How are you doing wonderful? We're going to talk a little bit today about metabolic syndrome, but your natural pathway physician. I and tell us about that practice and tell us about your training, and more importantly, tell us how you got interested in love that question, especially the last one. So I come to naturopathic medicine from research science. I'm a biochemist, and I came to Seattle, and I think the late not the early nineties and notice that a lot of people here were using some kind of a strange medicine called naturopathic medicine. And I thought, you know, does this stuff really workers it wou- and the the question kept ringing in my mind. And I I really wanted to know, but people were using it in consistently using it. So. So I actually after I actually was in the peace corps. And I came back from the peace corps, and I applied to steer university and nine hundred ninety four and I got accepted, and I thought that I would get out and do research, and so I waited for the H to come and they didn't come. So I had to accept they did come in two thousand ten and when I was a became a National Institute of health research fellow. Oh, I see. Okay. I was I was gonna ask what NIH what does that mean? Research health fellow. Yeah. So so the NIH or the National Institute of health has many many grants for research, and one of those grants was I got one of those grants to look at the immunological effects of natural product medicinal mushroom on folks that were healthy had healthy immune systems, and folks that are burdened with cancer or breast cancer. And so that's what I studied from two thousand and five to two thousand and ten with the university of Minnesota and then also best year university. Wow. Interesting. You have quite a background. Don't you? I kinda do. I find it interesting that having a bio chemical background is about chemist and then going into the natural Pathak area. That's interesting because what you're doing a natural path is using natural herbs. And what do you want to call it a supplement? The natural products. Yes. To provide healthcare right affect health. And so my curiosity was again does this work. I am Catholic until I have Catholic guilt about things that don't work. And so I wanted to before I even entered into a field in in administered health or facilitated health. I wanted to make sure that it worked actually did something. And so and that was skeptical. Yes, I was skeptical. And so again, my research background took me into or allowed me to ask. The question does this work, and how does it work? And then when I had the NIH or the National Institute health. The question was does this natural product is medicinal mushroom work. How does it work on immune cells? And so so it incorporated my biochemical research background with this interest in in health. Interesting interesting, did you find out does it work? Absolutely. And so the university of Washington to vaccine center has been also doing research on the same product for a tumor vaccine. So and we weren't the first to study it's been studied for about forty five years. But we were some of the first to study study for breast cancer, where's the mushroom? Come from it. It's everywhere. It's a funny name. I'm going to tell you the the the because I don't want it to sound. Woo. I'm going to tell you the scientific name is true media. I the color, but the combination is Turkey tail and it's found all over the world.

There's definitely people, who are struggling to meet their basic needs, and who are the people is it just people. Who have low incomes or is this recent. Into the middle class well it's it's reaching into the middle class I mean a lot of the people were the. Highest rates of these, problems occur among people who are in poor health or have chronic health conditions but it definitely made. Reaching into the middle class families where there where there's a worker in the family. It the adults are still basically saying about thirty five percent of the time they're having some, problems about thirty five, percent. Of those adults report having some problems meeting their basic me it's worse for families. Without workers Fifty five percent of those adults report having. Problems paying for these basic needs but definitely were reaching into the. Working I into the working families so. Where and how does this end Well, we're in how. Does this end, is a good, question I mean I think that you know it it, probably doesn't end completely there's, always, gonna be some people in an economy struggling but it probably but when the, if the economy if they were more, support for people who are. Struggling then it might be that uh It would help but the idea of it ending. Is probably not something that you can really be thinking about did some of this surprise us some of these numbers are what were you. Expecting when, when you went into it well, I mean I think we. We our expectations were that you know that we're always, going to be. People who were having some of, these problems and I think we we went into this, because we knew there was, a Fairly significant policy debate going on right now about Considering enacting policies that could actually cut back, on, some supports and we. Were thinking to ourselves well the economy is strong I think people are looking at that and thinking that maybe you can cut back on some of the, supports for healthcare for food assistance for housing assistance and, we wanted to see before? Those policies get implemented what what things look like what is the current situation in the current situation is a little bit leaks Steve at the at the very beginning of this show, we raise the question is the American dream dead and it, sounds like maybe it is because in the past each generation had the expectation that it would do better than the generation that came before it is that no longer the case Well I don't know from generation to generation you know, how, whether the study really. Speaks to that but what I think it's really showing is that there's a great deal of inequality that people who are at you know at or near, the bottom and not even that far to the bottom. I mean are are struggling? So it's it's not necessarily the American dream is dead but there's a lot of people that are not yet probably at a point where they feel comfortable with their circumstances on a, day to day basis that's Steve Zuckerman co-director of senior fellow, the urban institute's a health policy center co author of this study KNX in-depth continues front-page news takes cover well explain that one When posting, on most, jobs sites you get candidates I'm the sales the director.
