"Bill Please": Consumers Driving Health Care
(Coming Soon!) Fill The Gap: Saving Consumer-Driven Health Care
Inspired by the Choose Your Adventure® books I read as a boy, I decided to write two books with two different calls to action in addressing consumers driving health care:
1) “Bill Please,” which calls for consumers to create a “Bill Please” Revolution by posting their medical bills & stories, and all the health care players to join in the conversation.
2) Fill The Gap, which calls for employers as well as consumers to fill the gap caused by Consumer-Driven High Deductible Health Plans with inexpensive gap insurance to ensure we keep moving towards the transparent, accountable, affordable health care system we all desire. (Coming soon!)

Bill Please: Consumers Driving Health Care
There are hundreds of books out there by economists, policymakers, journalists, and even doctors trying to fix health care. They are all urgent and necessary because spending over 19% of our GDP on less than the highest quality health care is not sustainable - and, frankly, American citizens deserve better.
Rylan Klaseen has a different take than most. As an entrepreneur, and business owner, leading a group employee benefits firm, he’s out in the trenches daily assisting employers and employees in riding the waves of health care reform, while innovating the most cost efficient, high quality health plan blends he can.
The current state of Americans’ health and health care is covered, but there is no blame game here, just very specific calls to action - exactly the type of pragmatic approach you would expect from someone in the thick of it who has to make it happen.
In this book, he reveals how we all had a hand in creating our opaque $3 trillion health care system - and how we can all fix it.
He proves why consumers must take the wheel if we are to achieve the transparent, accountable, affordable health care system we all want and desperately need.
-He calls for consumers to start a “Bill Please” Revolution, enabling all to post medical bills in a collective forum, creating a grassroots push to immediate transparency and accountability.
-He calls for providers, and pharmaceuticals to post their prices, their research, and their outcomes in easy-to-understand language.
-He calls for insurers to post their premiums and their coverage clearly.
-He calls for employers to post their benefit successes.
-He calls for entrepreneurs to post their health care innovations and achievements.
-He calls for public servants (politicians and academic policymakers) to listen and engage with we the taxpayers, we the consumers, we the people.
-He calls for all to join the conversation, leaning forward until we reach our goal.
This book is a must read for consumers and imperative for all of the players in our U.S. health care system.
The exciting news is that the consumer-driven health care train is leaving the station. Get on board or be left behind.
