This week in MedCityNews SingleCare’s CEO Rick Bates discussed the obstacles that consumers face in getting access to affordable healthcare coverage and his motivations for championing SingleCare’s mission.
“When we looked out across the market, most people have insurance, but there are much broader needs,” he told MedCityNews. “We have tried to put together a comprehensive suite of products that we can bring to the marketplace.”
There were nearly 30 million people uninsured in America, according to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau data. And those numbers are only expected to rise.
