11:48 “I think the trend is going to be the direct contracting in their own networks. I think that allows you to get better unit price cost, allows you to dictate care better than what a BUCA can do.”

16:20 “What are we trying to do for the member, which the DPC and those kind of physician things are important, and then what are we doing for the plan? And that’s when you need to attack the unit cost at the facilities.”

18:19 “It just seems like healthcare is one of these things where you don’t want to tell people what to do but it’s just getting to the point now where it’s just so unaffordable.”
