EP328: An Interview Specifically for Health Care Executives, With Marshall Allen, Author of the Best Seller Never Pay the First Bill: And Other Ways to Fight the Health Care System and Win
Here’s another signal with implications. In this health care podcast, I’m interviewing the incomparable Marshall Allen. That’s not the signal. His book, Never Pay the First Bill: And Other Ways to Fight the Health Care System and Win, a book with that title being on the New York Times best seller list, is the signal. Marshall’s book is an instruction manual for patients on how to fight back against unfair and/or egregiously inaccurate bills.

Stacey, host of the Relentless Health Value podcast, highlights all aspects of health care and more in this can’t miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!
Intelligent and needed
I’ve been listening to Stacey’s podcast for a year and while it competes for a dozen others that I want to listen to, here’s is one I always keep up on and go back and find a trove of topics from the past. Her exploration of the nuances of the healthcare industry allows her to make connections in a siloed industry that few notice, which means the questions she asks and the conclusions she draws are of the most informed in the industry.
I especially like that she begins her podcasts now with her main takeaways. That makes the first 3 min of this podcast the most worthy use of your time.
Best way to understand what’s going on in healthcare
Anyone, even lifelong healthcare professionals, can learn something because of the way Stacey goes deep into a subject with her guests. She does a great job of keeping it topical and not commercial.
