Healthcare Administration, Healthcare Insurance, and Drug Prices – Twitter Roundup

As most of you know, I like to occasionally go around the twittersphere and highlight some interesting or thoughtful tweets that are shared. Plus, I like to add a little of my own commentary to each tweet to provide some quick analysis on what they’re saying. We hope you enjoy this quick Twitter roundup.

I’m surprised this tweet didn’t also include the chart which shows the growth in the number of physicians and the growth in the number of healthcare administrators. It would fit perfectly with these tweets. The real question here isn’t if there’s a problem. The real question is how do we roll this back?

This story has been all over Twitter. However, I was fascinated by Roman comparing healthcare insurance to other insurance like home and car. It does seem to be very different. I wonder if there’s some important lessons we can learn here.

This was my question when I heard about Alex Azar as HHS Secretary. Will Alex take the side of the people or will he take th side of his buddies? He can say what he wants on air. We’ll see if he can deliver on lowering prescription prices. He’s definitely got an uphill battle.
