A Second Opinion with Senator Bill Frist, M.D.


Aug 25, 2021

Today we’re having a compelling discussion about pricing in healthcare. I’m joined by three thought leaders who are disrupting the status quo in both the business and policy arenas. 

By popular demand, we’ve invited back my longtime friend and colleague, Professor Larry Van Horn.  Larry is a renowned expert and researcher on health care management and economics at the Vanderbilt University Owen Graduate School of Management.  Larry served as an advisor to the Trump Administration on healthcare price transparency and on the Health and Human Services Quality Summit Panel. 

I’m also joined by Patrick Quigley, co-founder and CEO of Sidecar Health, an innovative new health insurance model that gives consumers the ability to pay directly for care — often at steep discounts to the prices that patients would be charged through traditional insurance plans.

And by Paul Ketchel, Founder & CEO of MDsave, a company whose unique bundling technology makes medical procedures price transparent, shoppable, and instantly transactable – ending surprise billing for consumers.  

In our discussion today, we ask the tough questions regarding how to reform our healthcare system to make it more transparent and affordable and look at some solutions geared to better serve the patient.
