Invent Health - The Future of Healthcare Insurance
November 14, 2019 - HP, Palo Alto
Welcome to Invent Health (#inventhealth), a quarterly twilight salon-styled tech talk and mixer produced by HP, Vator and UCSF Health Hub, where valuable lessons and insights are shared by investors, tech pioneers and adopters. Invent Health is designed to take a 360-degree view of one particular topic.
In this case, the topic is “The Future of Healthcare Insurance." Health insurance companies generated a profit of $24 billion in 2018. The largest eight generated $9.3 billion in Q1 2019. Leading Socialist Democrats want to take that money and use it to spend on care by eliminating public insurance companies and have these services administered by the government.
Good policy? Good for Silicon Valley? Since 2010, there have emerged a number of new insurance or benefits companies, such as Oscar Health and Collective Health.
What's the future of healthcare insurance? We'll discuss at our November salon.
