MBN feat. Dr. Brian E. Hill - Hip Nation

Dr. Hill is a partner and practicing physician with Urology Specialists of Atlanta, is on the board of the Medical Association of Atlanta and is a delegate to the Medical Association of Georgia annual House of Delegates. He has been selected to the League of Leaders with the Institute of Healthcare Consumerism and service on the IHC editorial advisory board. Dr. Hill is the author of Stop the Noise: A Physician’s Quest to Silence the Politics of Health Care Reform as well as numerous articles on healthcare reform. In 2014, Dr. Brian Hill, Dr. Hal Scherz, Dr. Jeff English, and Davis Butler, an attorney specializing in healthcare, came together to form HIPnation. HIP stands for Healthcare Impact Partners—coming from the idea that we want to directly partner with our members in order to make a positive impact on their healthcare. Nation was added because it is our hope that this new way of healthcare will have an impact on our entire nation. The problem: Healthcare has become more about the insurance industry than the patient-physician relationship. Physician interaction with this system has become exorbitantly expensive and becomes more so every year. These costs are passed along to patients through higher prices that do nothing to help make anyone healthier. The system has become a distraction, an added burden without corresponding value. Physicians and insurers hire a multitude of people to manage the current system. This is reflected in high healthcare costs that then make health insurance expensive. This same interaction also distracts physicians, making them focus on meeting the regulations of the insurers as opposed to the needs of their patients. Our assessment: Insurance should be used only for the high-cost health events—not things like physicals, the management of ongoing medical conditions, or the common cold. Our treatment: Redesign the healthcare ecosystem to place the patient back in its center and put insurance in its proper place. Our design: We developed an innovative delivery solution based upon a membership model that removes insurance and its valueless distractions from the primary care office. Patients now have 24/7 access to their Primary Care Physician who is focused exclusively on helping them maximize their overall wellness. Studies show that patients with access to a personal 24/7 primary care physician experience: We expanded the model to include significantly reduced True Cost prices for payment at the point of service for outpatient healthcare services including labs, imaging, specialty consultations, minor procedures, and ambulatory surgeries. Then we partner with a sharing or indemnity product (for individuals) or a sharing product or a level-funded plan (for employers) to help manage the high-cost healthcare events. The effect of this approach: Individuals can reduce total healthcare costs by as much as 60% and employers can reduce total healthcare costs 30-50%, while accessing concierge-level primary care. It’s time for change. We invite you to “join the nation.” Sponsored By & Part of Medcare Staffing Placing MD's, DDS, Pharmacists & Advanced Practitioners in Positions of Success Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

MBN feat. Jacquel Tucker & The J Tucker Group

Jacquel Tucker Coach Jacquel Tucker is full of passion and fire and it's easy to understand why. If someone had told her when she was a little girl growing up in rural Jamaica with her parents and 8 siblings that one day she would feed up to 2,000 families monthly in the USA and it would happen during the worst pandemic, she would have laughed, told them no way - her family could barely afford dinner or even a tube of toothpaste. Even though she was growing up in a Christian home with her dad as a Pastor and her mom as a Youth Director, it all seemed impossible! But that was all about to change and it started with her "Lazarus story" when she was almost six years old. It was enough to solidify her faith and trust at a young age that if God brought her back to life from the the dead, then surely, he must have big plans for her life. Today you can find her fiercely and faithfully walking in her calling. But this was not always the case. One of her earliest big breaks came in the form of a full academic scholarship to study at the University of Maine. God showed her that even though there were thousands in Jamaica who applied for this scholarship, it was in his perfect plan for her to be one of the 20 students awarded. This incredible opportunity launched her successful career in Hospitality where she worked in Jamaica and subsequently returned to the USA where she consistently advanced to Executive Leadership positions in Sales & Marketing. Have you ever felt like you were caught up in the hamster wheel of life? You are working very hard but not sure where it's all going or it doesn't feel very rewarding? Sadly, this was how Jacquel felt about her life. However, it was all about to change. In 2016, she could no longer deny the call of God on her life to serve others in a major way. She walked away from her successful career and launched her non-profit The Jamaica Project USA with a mission to transform rural schools and communities in Jamaica and serve families in her state of Georgia, USA. She became about her father's business and there was nothing more rewarding and fulfilling. Every sacrifice was worth it. With her 25 years of leadership experience, Jacquel also launched her consulting company in 2016, training numerous hospitality employees and managers in the areas of sales, customer service and leadership. Her purpose was set on fire and God wanted her to do the same for others. Since then, she has been helping numerous individuals discover, ignite and launch their true kingdom purpose with influence and impact. She is the ultimate Purpose on Fire Launcher, Chief Encouragement Officer and Chief Motivator and it's quite contagious! Jacquel currently lives in Georgia, USA with her best friend and fellow entrepreneur Shun Tucker and serves as a Lead Coach over the Children's Ministry at Victory Church in Norcross GA. She firmly believes "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" and her greatest desire is to hear from our Heavenly Father "Well done good and faithful servant".
