VC Versus Entrepreneur: A Debate on How the Future of Health Insurance Can Be Reimagined

In this debate, an entrepreneur will argue that consumers are ready to be active healthcare consumers, and better insurance design – one that illuminates treatment options with clear prices so consumers know the cost upfront and can make better decisions in advance of care – is the way to get there. A venture capitalist will argue that the world of insurance is indeed so complicated that no amount of improved design will do and that consumers need advocates to make prudent decisions that ultimately lower costs overall and for them.
