Big companies are teaming up together to tackle the issue of health care head on
Many people have been waiting for Amazon and other corporate giants to announced that they will be tackling the issue of health care; the time has come.
Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, and JPMorgan Chase & Co. have just announces that they are teaming up to address the issue of healthcare for their U.S. employees. Their goal is to improve employee satisfaction and reduce costs of health insurance. The three mega companies plan to use an independent company that is free from profit-making incentives and constraints.
“The initial focus of the new company will be on technology solutions that will provide U.S. employees and their families with simplified, high-quality and transparent healthcare at a reasonable cost,” the companies said.
JPMorgan’s Dimon said, “The three of our companies have extraordinary resources, and our goal is to create solutions that benefit our U.S. employees, their families and, potentially, all Americans.”
