“Third party payors (insurance companies and governments) reimburse for procedures performed rather than out-comes achieved, and patients bear little responsibility for the cost of the health care services they demand” Harvard Business Review, Sept. 2011 The Big IdeaLet’s examine that statement for a minute, because I have seen and heard it for a while and it is base on a false assumption. I work for a Fortune 100 company and they provide excellent benefits, it’s part of my total compensation package. In other words, it is how I get paid. Part of the benefits I receive, as part of my compensation, is excellent health insurance. The company that I work for pay two thirds of the cost of the insurance policy. The other third comes out of my pay check in weekly installments. But because this is part of my total compensation (how I get paid) I am really the one who works for this coverage. I am responsible for it’s costs. Furthermore, money gets taken out of my paycheck every week to fund Medicare and Medicaid. So it isn’t the government who is funding these insurances. That money is coming from me and all the other taxpayers in America. We bare the responsibility for the costs of that coverage. I would really like to see the lie that we demand health care, but expect someone else to cover its cost die a quick death. I need health care and I am responsible for its costs, so I pay for insurance by working.

"More than 250,000 deaths occur each year as a result of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). In fact, SCA claims one life every two minutes, taking more lives each year than breast cancer, lung cancer or AIDS. To decrease the death toll from SCA, it is important for the U.S. public to understand what SCA is, what the symptoms and warning signs are and how to respond and prevent SCA from occurring."
