State of the State RI

Guest: Ted Almon, CEO-Chaflin Co., Member: Working Group on Health Care
Host: Richard August Time: 30 minutes
With over twenty-five years of studying the health care field, Almon brings a wealth of knowledge with a businessman’s perspective. He questions if cutting health care cost will result in any substantial savings, especially where Medicaid is concerned given the role of Obamacare. He points out that health care is both a cost center and a revenue generating center. Having studied many models, he doubts if the free-market approach can effectively cut cost and he is coming to believe that health care perhaps should be treated as a utility.
