In the United States, we are privileged to enjoy some of the best medical care in the world. But the system is financially broken–a bipartisan assessment shared across political and ideological lines. In 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower coined the phrase “military-industrial complex”. What nobody saw coming was a veritable “medical-industrial complex” whose lobbying dollars now eclipse every other industry. We do not use provocative terms lightly, but the medical industry today operates as a genuine cartel, in which insurance companies and large health systems collude to maintain artificially high prices, all with the help of government regulation.
At Veritas, we pay our providers well and treat them better than the insurance companies do. We cut out the value destroying middlemen of insurance carriers, their lobbyists, and the administrative bloat that invariably follows. We are committed to posting honest and transparent prices for all services offered; what you are quoted is exactly what you pay.
