On this week's show, hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field talk with special guests from copatient, Brighton Health Plan Solutions and TASC.
The first guest is Tom Torre, CEO at copatient, a health care expense management company. In this segment, Tom joins the hosts to discuss the big health care trends that copatient is seeing in the market today and why copatient exists. As an industry veteran with past executive roles at FIS Global and Alegeus Technologies, Tom will also touch upon copatient’s medical bill review and negotiation service and out-of-network claims management service and what benefit these services have to health plans, employers, brokers and TPAs.
The second guest is Simeon Schindelman, CEO of Brighton Health Plan Solutions (parent company of MagnaCare). The traditional health care system fails to align the interests of the key players, doesn’t put consumer care first and also underserves other key stakeholders, such as care providers, plan sponsors, families of patients and brokers/agents. Educating plan sponsors and plan participants about options and tradeoffs, while developing trusting relationships so they value advice being offered, will improve their ability to access and use the health care system most appropriately. In this interview, Simeon and the hosts talk about thoughtful approaches to lowering health care costs, improving quality and increasing the satisfaction of all participants in the health care system.
The final guest on this week's program is Jason Westphal, legislative analyst at TASC. As head of TASC’s Governmental Affairs team, a member of ECFC and former chief of staff in the Wisconsin State Assembly, Jason will provide listeners with insights on legislative issues pertaining to compliance for the small employer, document storage, sharing and tracking, the Employer Shared Responsibility Mandate and ERISA.

Our guest, Jim Bouchard, is the Director of Marketing & Development for Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice (AHCH). Your hosts, Burl and Merry, received compassionate support in caring for Burl’s mother, Mary Ann Hall, during the final months of her life from AHCH. In gratitude, we wish to share the empatheic and responsive care Mary Ann and we, as caregivers, received with our listeners.
AHCH “cares for the health, independence, and quality of life of Maine residents and their families in the comfort of their home and community. When a person is ill or homebound, the power to heal involves more than medical treatment. It's also the touch of a hand or the warmth of a smile.” The agency has a longstanding community service mission focused on building and sustaining a continuum of in-home services to address the acute, long-term and end-of-life care needs of individuals and their families.
Hospice emphasizes palliative rather than curative treatment; quality rather than quantity of life. The dying are comforted. Professional medical care is given, and sophisticated symptom relief provided. Hospice affirms life and regards dying as a normal process. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death.
We are especially moved by the final days Mary Ann and we spent at Hospice House, thoughtfully designed to be sensitive to the needs of patients and their families, "allowing family members to be relieved of the role of caregiver and focus solely on gathering together to support their loved one.”

Generation after generation,our Black families have suffered through slavery, poverty, and drug addictions.
With that being said, there have been instances where Black children have been placed in the system under the umbrella of foster care and then sometimes adoption. What is the system like that has been taken from their family? Does it matter that their are cultural differences between what white people think and what Black people think is different such as the way you discipline your child? What is a CASA or Guardian Ad litem?
We will discuss this matter and discuss how we can be more involved in caring for our own.
