Transforming Health Insurance with Ali Diab, CEO of Collective Health
By The Mission
Ali Diab is the co-founder and CEO of Collective Health, a healthcare technology company that makes employee sponsored health insurance more transparent and simple to navigate. Ali was motivated to start Collective Health after his own medical event. As he was busy recovering from a life saving operation, Ali was served numerous health care bills with no clear understanding of what was owed and for what. He had great health insurance too but even still, the bills were high and not clear or transparent. On a mission to understand the healthcare system, Ali founded Collective Health. “You don't need to know bond math to understand your mortgage, so why do I need to understand every acronym and every medical term to understand my health benefit plan? You shouldn't, it should be plain English. I think that that's intentional. That's the way the industry keeps us out and keeps us from poking at the beehive.” On this episode, Ian and Ali discuss the problems within the healthcare industry, how technology is making a difference, and what Collective Health is doing to move the industry closer to transparency and simplicity. — P.S.
