Health care in the United States is complex, hard to navigate and doesn’t always work the way it should. The good news: So much has changed over the last few years. Leaders inside and outside of the health industry are rethinking how to deliver care and support to meet all people where they’re at.

When it comes to your health, everything is connected. So, taking better care of it needs to go beyond the physical to include mental, emotional, social and spiritual health. And to look at the full picture, health care needs to give more consideration to where you are born, live, learn and work, too.

In Season 3 of “Until It’s Fixed,” we’ll talk with thought leaders and advocates working to solve the health industry’s biggest challenges — as well as personal stories from people who live with these issues every day.

We’ll have deep conversations about opportunities to make the current system work better for everyone, including talking more openly about the role that gender, sexual orientation, race, income and other areas of your life play in accessing and receiving health care.

This is where change starts. Join us on the inspiring journey to create a healthier world — and make health care simpler and more effective for everyone.

    One Thing Today: Green Flags

    One Thing Today: Green Flags

    When it comes to any relationship, it takes two people to make it work. And, a doctor-patient relationship is no different – both people have a role to play in communicating, which helps build trust. This week, we look at how you can create or improve a relationship with your doctor by talking with guests from both sides: Dr. Maria Hale, a patient experience expert at Optum, and Omase Lassey, a patient and health advocate.

    Why The Right Doctor Matters

    Why The Right Doctor Matters

    Many studies show having a strong relationship with your doctor really matters. People who like their doctor report fewer health issues and a higher quality of life compared to those who don’t. That’s because the more comfortable you are with your doctor, the more likely you may be to follow their advice – or go to them when you’re struggling. We talk with Dr. Soo Rhee from Healthgrades (part of RVO Health,) the #1 platform for finding a doctor and a leader in health care transparency, about how to not just find a doctor but the right doctor for you.

    One Thing Today: Understanding Medical Expense Accounts

    One Thing Today: Understanding Medical Expense Accounts

    A side of your health and well-being that may be top-of-mind is health costs and how to save for or manage them. Health insurance can play a part, but there are other financial tools that could be available to you. Author, podcast host and financial influencer Michela Allocca from “Break Your Budget” joins the conversation to break down a common, yet often underutilized, benefit for managing health costs—medical expense accounts. While you may be familiar with HSAs and FSAs, a recent survey* found roughly one-third of Americans who were eligible for an HSA did not have one. And, of those who did, roughly half had not contributed in the last year. We’ll talk about how these accounts can help you—and your loved ones—save money on health care costs.
