Change Health Care Providers

While unemployed I used to get my health care through a combination of Primary Care, and a High Deductible Health Plan.  My total cost was $120. I got better service than what our District pays $850 plus our out of pocket for.  "Qliance Chief Executive Officer Norm Wu wants to combine the group’s primary care with high-deductible insurance plans that cap patients’ out-of-pocket fees for services that Qliance doesn’t cover. He says such a package could be sold on the state exchanges that, under the 2010 health reform law, are supposed to be running by 2014. Such an arrangement could save individuals in the Seattle area 40 percent to 50 percent, vs. today’s comprehensive plans"… http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/qliance-concierge-health-care-for-t...

We could avoid the health insurance monopoly through a combination of employer/employee contributions for Primary Care, health reimbursement accounts, and high deductible health plans.   It won't work for everybody but if 2/3's of North employees opted to go with the plan we could save over 1,000,000 dollars per year and potentially get better service.  Qliance has offered free services to a dozen of our highest users of health services to test it out.  Let's take them up on their offer and see if it is something we should consider!
