How to Get Health Care Like the 1%

How to Get Health Care Like the 1%

Sovereign Solutions Editor’s Note:

This linked article highlights some important health care service points:

  1. The importance of patient/customer proactive nature in concerns to individual health.
  2. The real need/usefulness of “health care advocates.”

Per the author, health care advocates are essentially health care quarterbacks. YOU are the GM/general contractor that assumes responsibility to place all of the moving parts and tools so as to achieve desired results.

Would this not work better than a behemoth controlling and manipulating organization(s) and system(s), whether public, private, mixed market?

I bet you have heard of the saying:

Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket!

Do not individuals best understand their physical and financial health and have the greatest interest in it?

The patient in the linked article serves as an excellent example for empowered customer decision-making! Her odyssey could have been VERY quick and without obstacles if ONLY she had known what she knows now!

Being passive and expecting ANY BIG health care systems to just take care of things optimally just does not work. Think about it…the systems in place now do not even permit PRICE DISCOVERY, or transparent prices, in healthcare!

That’s insane, pure and simple.

For those looking to receive help in their personal health care matters, there is a growing trend towards consulting with individual healthcare advocates.


By the time Catherine came to me for help, in the spring of 2012, the health care system had pretty much destroyed her health.

“I’ve been diagnosed with this… condition,” she began. “It’s called Churg-Strauss. They want to do surgery in a few weeks to confirm that I have it.”

Normally, this 53-year-old management professional lights up a room with her grace and vitality. Today was different: Three different doctors had just told her that she likely had a rare and fatal autoimmune condition.

Churg-Strauss Syndrome typically develops in three stages, starting with severe asthma and allergies. Next, the immune system fails, manifesting as fatigue, coughs, abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding. In the third phase, the arteries and veins become so inflamed that blood can’t get to vital organs, causing all sorts of nasty symptoms: nausea, vomiting, chest pain, shortness of breath, numbness in the toes and fingers so bad that you can’t walk. All your major organs, muscles, and joints are attacked. Researchers aren’t sure what causes Churg-Strauss and there is no cure, but treatment—corticosteroids to start and, if it progresses, chemotherapy—can help keep the final stage at bay.

Sitting across from me that day, Catherine seemed confused and exhausted, uncertain of what to do, and fighting back tears every time she said the words “Churg-Strauss.” The process of trying to get better had only made her feel worse.

It was clear that she required more than just medical advice; she needed to regain the courage to take charge of her own medical care. Her history would provide the important clues we needed to get her back on track. “Tell me everything,” I said. “Start from the beginning.”
