If you’ve become a tad tired of the way that big pharma and the government have overpowered how Americans receive their healthcare for decades, then this article may just be what you’re begging to hear! A few major corporations have put their thinking caps on to help their employees get to the doctor with hopefully, a lot less red tape.
Amazon, JPMorgan Chase, and Berkshire Hathaway, have decided to join together and create an independent health care company for their employees based in the United States. Due to factors such as the increasing cost of healthcare, and basic medical treatment becoming more challenging by the second in the states, it is unclear just what the outcome of this possible merger in the works could evolve into in the coming months. What is blatantly evident, is that mega companies such as these are constantly observed from other corporations all over the globe, and if they have found a successful way to crack the healthcare issue here in the USA, others will without question, start to follow their lead.
Since the news broke, stocks for some major health companies have suffered, such as Anthem, and UnitedHealth Group taking quite the plunge on Tuesday. The New York Times recently remarked on how Amazon alone tends to totally disrupt other major industries with their unconventional, yet successful methods. Add in giants such as Chase Bank, who hold the title for largest bank in the states, and Berkshire Hathaway, which is run by billionaire investor, Warren E. Buffett, and health care could very well be in for quite a surprise.
All three companies reported that the insurance initiative would be totally free of profit-making incentives, and constraints. It is unclear at this point if the merger would create a nonprofit, but they certainly have all eyes on them right now, and in the coming months to see just much this announcement could potentially upset the current healthcare crisis in the United States.
