Uninformed and wrong podcast. Never gets into personal responsibility. Admits that the problems with insurance only started because of government interference and socialist actions but thinks that more socialism is the answer!

As a “healthcare provider” I have been shielded from the realities of how the system actually works. Exploiting us as pawns and as consumers of the very same system. not only is this podcast informative, it guides listeners on how to advocate for ourselves.. this system can’t continue to work as...Read full review »

This podcast combines horror stories from the U.S. healthcare system with the most inane market-based “solutions” which wouldn’t change anything. Instead of getting billionaires to pay taxes and finance health care, we are told that patients should call their insurance while they are in an...Read full review »

I’m so grateful to live in Australia. Our system isn’t perfect but never would I have to worry about calling an ambulance or getting a scan that costs in the thousands or even just going into any sort of debt for medical procedures. Very interesting but also scary.

Such an important topic. Information provided in an interesting and real-life way.

Having experienced UK (NHS) and decades of for profit American health care for my chronic issues this is my take on this podcast. Focus on anecdotal experiences and graphic tragic outcomes doesn’t illustrate the everyday mindset and relationship with health care of most Americans. To...Read full review »

Validation!! As a registered nurse, this podcast shows the corrupt greed and dysfunction of the healthcare industrial complex. Money, slick lobbyists, and million of dollars buying off politicians keeps justice and equity in healthcare out of reach for the majority of people in the US. People...Read full review »

I just found this podcast and already I’m obsessed. It’s super pro and the audio and editing are amazing. I was an RN for 20 years and worked on a renal unit for 4 years, so the episode on dialysis was very enlightening. I’m now a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and the episodes...Read full review »

As someone who watched a lot of medical dramas growing up (E.R., Chicago Hope etc) I’ve long been intrigued and horrified by a system that allows people to go bankrupt because they happen to get sick, or asks them for their insurance details when they’re first wheeled in to the E.R. from the...Read full review »

Really helpful, but what about addictions?
JJFeler via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/17/21
Excellent podcast about an complex broken system. I will take issue with the idea that the outcomes based payment models described in episode 5 may be a 'long fix' solution to the Fee for Service model. Having worked in primary care with this 'new and improved model', it does...Read full review »

This might be one of the best podcasts I have listened to thus far. Wonderful reporting, insightful stories and deep perspective. I recently went through receiving a medical bill of 16k expenses billed via a less than two hour cardiologist visit for one of my teens. I fought and fought and lost....Read full review »

This is such a hot button topic for me having had a few nightmare billing situations, I was hesitant to listen concerned it would trigger strong feelings back to the surface. Convincing myself to try the first two episodes, I now look forward to the next one each week. Appreciate the case...Read full review »

Thank you for this enlightening series. As a Union-member RN, I knew the hospitals were misrepresenting their Non-profit model to avoid paying RNs what we earn in our blood and sweat, but the veil is off now! Single payor system for all. What waste we trim could pay for all citizens to remain...Read full review »

I own a small business. After Obamacare I could only afford the premium not any healthcare. I’m sorry but it’s unfair that Thst small businesses pay for Medicaid where people can use theER as a primary dr. And I have to think twice if I have a legit emergency. I want poor people to go to the...Read full review »

Thorough, insightful, and definitely worth a listen.
Mavericksmeow via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/29/21
As an American citizen who has lived many years in Europe I can attest how our healthcare system is the most expensive, insensitive and discriminatory. Thank you for digging into this issue and bringing light into a broken system in so much need of a reform.

It’s heart breaking to hear the loss of family members of the host. However, the tragedy has more to do with the genetics makeup and personal responsibility than anything else. Also, when I hear that health care profesional claims “because our healthcare system is no good, so we must rely on...Read full review »

I have only listened to the first in these series of podcasts, but I would recommend everyone who has had any experience of addiction, either personally, or within their family, to listen. Also to any clinicians involved in the treatment of addiction.
SelenaChester via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/26/21
I was really engaged by this series until David Smith blithely justified the rampant greed of health care providers in the most recent episode. He asserts that “any one of us” would do the same were we in a position to make obscene amounts of money from a rigged system that is literally allowing...Read full review »

Appreciate listening to the podcast, on many levels. My mother passed away, 1/8/21, after a life of chronic kidney disease, chronic pain and related mental health illness. I grew up with the specter of suicidal ideation before mental health became adequate enough to start helping. Obviously there...Read full review »

I am a certified medical coder and it breaks my heart to hear these stories. People don’t understand how insurance works and it’s very sad. Not to mention the evil practitioners that over bill.
President Taft's Moustache via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/22/21
Even w insurance, it is all so difficult to navigate, deal with especially when you are sick! I don’t understand why the US can’t get this fixed.

This story must be told and thankfully “last day” brought me here. Thank you David for delivering this storyline, beautifully and thoughtfully told and researched. I am well informed on a lot of these themes and you’ve proven to be an expert in them, both professionally and personally

I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside David Smith for a couple of years and where he goes next always keeps me off-balanced. His knack for story-telling with a purpose in healthcare is unparalleled - this is surely going to keep you on your toes.
GregWill924 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/21
I think healthcare costs and the money-making industry behind insurance is front-of-mind for a lot of folks - sounds like this show will tackle this head-on!

Really looking forward to this show. I’ve been terrified of the healthcare system most of my life, and have family members who were driven to bankruptcy due to medical care for chronic conditions. I can’t wait to listen, and hope this reaches as many people as possible!
iivanku via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/21
I can’t count the number of hours I’ve spent on the phone with insurance companies and billing reps. Our system is so broken! We need solutions now. Excited to listen to this.

I worked with David Smith back in our Leavitt Partners days and his grasp our our nation’s health issues has always been strong. I’m very much looking forward to this project.

From personal experience, yes, healthcare and insurance are confusing! Looking forward to learning why. And what we can do about it as patients. Also the artwork rocks!

usahozierfan2019 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/02/21
Not only is David Smith a phenomenal speaker, but his knowledge of the healthcare industry is extensive. Those things, coupled with his desire to close the gap on health and social inequities are going to make this podcast a hit!
