The model they have laid out will reinvest capital that would otherwise go to profits for third-party insurance providers back into their own health plan which will negotiate directly for services.
To many, this is viewed as a pioneering first-step in wresting the control that insurance companies have on costs, choice, and reimbursement rates. But for one company, the Empower Group of Miami, Florida, these measures are only a fraction of the groundbreaking...

Owners of the Least Expensive Homes Gaining Wealth Faster Than Any Other Homeowner
16 02 2018
SEATTLE, Feb. 16, 2018 -- Owners of starter homes across the country are gaining equity faster than other homeowners because demand for entry-level homes continues to grow faster than supply.
The phenomenon – which has become more pronounced over the past few years -- underscores the power of homeownership to build wealth, particularly among the middle class.
For this analysis, Zillow® divided the U.S. housing stock into equal thirds based on value and determined the median value of the most and least valuable homes. Over the past year, homes in the most affordable segment of the market, which are often sought after by first-time buyers, gained 8.5 percent in value, compared to a 3.6 percent gain for the most expensive homes. Over the past five years, the difference is even more noticeable -- people who own starter homes have seen their equity grow by 44.4 percent, while owners of top-tier homes have gained 26.6 percent.
A home is the biggest financial asset and a significant...
