How do businesses purchase healthcare services for their employees? What are the factors that bear on their purchasing decisions? These important questions are rarely part of the policy conversation. Our guest on this episode is Jay Kempton, President and CEO of the Kempton Group, helping employers obtain and administer health care benefits for their employees. He relates his professional journey, shares his insights as a third-party administrator, and tells us about his recent efforts to turn employers away from the wasteful and corrupt health insurance benefit model.
Mr. Kempton is one of the founding members of the Free Market Medical Association, a board member of the Society of Professional Benefit Administrators, and a member of the Health Care Administrators Association. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Oklahoma State University and holds Life, Health, AD&D, and Property and Casualty Insurance licenses in multiple states.
