By Mike De SistiMedical News TodaySeptember 19, 2018″The average person has no idea how much money they spend on healthcare,” says Dr. William H. McLean, MD, associate professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
“It’s not something people can easily think about.
The people who are most susceptible to this are the people who need care the most.
They’re the ones who are struggling the most.””
Most people are willing to take on a burden,” McLean adds.
“The cost is not a barrier.
People think, ‘I can’t do it.
I don’t have the income.
I can’t get the help that I need.’
They can’t even imagine how much more it would be if they had the resources to get that help.
But, if you have enough money to cover the cost, the only thing that will be left is you and your family.
This is the most challenging and expensive part of healthcare, because it requires the most effort to make sure that we get the care that we need.”
McLean’s study looked at the costs of healthcare across the country, and his research has shown that for every dollar that healthcare providers spend on salaries, the amount that people will receive in benefits is only slightly greater.
That means that the average healthcare provider spends roughly $15,000 per year on salaries alone.
“People don’t think of healthcare as being a one-size-fits-all industry,” Mclean says.
“We’re just starting to see this, and the way that we think about it is: Is it going to cost me more to do this or to do that?
Is it better to pay my doctor more or to pay more for my care?”
The study found that when the researchers looked at a number of factors, including whether or not a person had a high school diploma, the biggest financial benefit was to have the right type of health insurance.
This means that people with health insurance, whether it’s through their employer or a self-pay plan, are able to afford their medications, which may save them up to $100,000 in out-of-pocket costs.
“Healthcare is so expensive because of the nature of it,” McLeod says.
“You have so many different things that are out there that you need to think about when you’re choosing a provider.
The number one thing that is out there, and this is just a tip of the iceberg, is that the cost of insurance can be anywhere from $500,000 to $2.5 million, depending on what you’re looking at.”
McLeod says that even though the number of people getting healthcare has skyrocketed, there are still some providers out there who don’t make enough money that people can’t afford to pay.
For example, when he first began working in the field of health care in 2011, he says, “there was only one provider that had insurance.”
“That was the insurance that I was insured through my employer,” McLee says.
That was a small insurance company in Pennsylvania.
“And that was the one that I could afford to go to, and I thought, I’ll do it,” he says.
But he soon found out that the insurance company that he was insured with, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, was losing money.
“Blue Cross and the insurance industry is a very complex business.
It’s a business that is very profit-driven.
If you’re paying $10,000 for an annual policy, you’re going to lose money.”
So he changed his mind and decided to go with an out-call health insurance company.
The reason he did that was because he knew he would never be able to make a living as a doctor.
McLean says he realized that people who work in the healthcare industry are often in the lowest-income bracket in the country.
“There’s no way that I’m going to be able make a decent living as an independent contractor, so I decided to change careers,” he explains.
When he started working in 2014, he was in the top one percent of earners.
Now, he’s one of the top 10 percent of income earners in the United States, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
And he’s making over $100 million a year.
“It’s hard to say, ‘Oh, I could have made more money if I was an independent consultant.’
I’m so fortunate,” he tells Medical News Daily.
“I have so much money, and now I can help other people in need.
But I do want to make it clear that I don.t think that working in healthcare is going to help me be successful in my career.
I’ve never been able to get the kind of support I need to be successful.
But it’s the best of both worlds.”
McLennan says that people should think of their healthcare needs as a “big-picture” issue, not just a
