“Since Dr. Davis doesn’t participate in Medicare or Medicaid, he is able to do charity work he wouldn’t be able to do otherwise. The Affordable Care Act has pushed many people to work for bigger and bigger hospitals and health systems. Hoping to become an orthopedic surgeon myself, I was afraid of what the employment landscape would look like by the time I get out of medical school, out of residency, and into the workforce. Dr. Davis’s story gives me hope for a rewarding career outside of a hospital where I can give patients the best care I know how.” ~Brennan Wright, BRI-President, The Ohio State University College of Medicine
“Price transparency is the first step toward establishing a true healthcare market. The next steps will likely include tools that help patients shop safely, then return patients’ money to their own pockets so that they can decide how best to spend it. Patients have been operating from within the proverbial cave for too long, and they are on the verge of seeing the light.” ~John Flo, BRI-Chapter President – St. Louis University School of Medicine
“By offering transparent costs of all medical services, a reduction in healthcare spending across the board would become inevitable. The reason that some entities are against transparent pricing is because they currently stand to gain from these market inefficiencies. These misalignments are often shielded from the public eye and are therefore not well understood by the majority of companies and individuals who purchase insurance.” ~Kristy Lynn Hawley, BRI Leader Emeritus, George Washington University
