"The cronies and their government pals are increasingly exposed. As the co-founder of the Free Market Medical Association, I am filled with optimism watching the growth and acceptance of market discipline in this industry."

A new world of medical entrepreneurship is growing. Concierge and cash-only practices, walk-in cash clinics, medical tourism, and cost-sharing plans are just a few of the ways free-market approaches are changing the landscape. Our expert speakers will discuss several of these developments, and more.

Recorded in Salem, New Hampshire, on June 17, 2021.
