Jay Kempton, president & CEO of The Kempton Group has been described as “the personification of a disruptive force in the self funded world.” In this episode’s wide-ranging discussion, Jay talks about everything from what buying a truck would be like if we applied today’s insurance purchasing rules to why Health Savings Accounts do not represent a real long-term solution.

We also explore the gap between the insurance provider and the consumer of the health goods and services, how it has grown over the years and how that gap has affected buying decisions. Jay also shares his views about how PPACA has strengthened TPAs and increased interest in self-insurance.

Whether you are currently discussing self-insured funding strategies with your clients, or you are new to helping employers become insurance owners rather than insurance buyers, you won’t want to miss this episode.
