San Diego is the “HMO Capital of the World”. Our San Diego marketplace is truly unique because whether you are Sharp, Scripps or UCSD, you have tremendous Doctors and Hospitals available to you.
In an effort to drive out high-cost waste in our healthcare system we have to be better consumers of that Healthcare. Many folks don’t prepare to use their plan in advance of having something happen.
