We've got a lot of questions marks ahead of us this year when it comes to healthcare. What will happen with the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, Medicaid, Planned Parenthood, etc. etc. The future of healthcare under the new administration is a big unknown. But one thing we do know - healthcare costs far too much. One of the key contributors to these costs is the over $200 billion per year in unnecessary medical care. In today's episode, we dig in to the reasons for these costs, and more importantly, we talk about the things we can do as healthcare consumers to reduce unnecessary medical care in our own lives.
