We try to include a lot of different voices on the  ShiftShapers podcast, and we have been missing an actuary’s perspective. Our guest on this episode, Hobson Carroll, is the President of Medrisk Actuarial Services. As you guessed from the headline, Hobson is a bit unorthodox and creative, but that is what makes him an intriguing and provocative thought leader in the industry – and a great podcast guest!
 
Hobson joins us today to explain why he describes a part of the current system as “organized crime” and why networks are like “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” He also shares his views on self-funding and why it is viable for small groups, in addition to exploring reference-based pricing and transparency in the marketplace. We will discuss strategies that you can use to help your clients navigate the current healthcare system.
