- (7:47) How would companies with less than 50 employees benefit from Direct Care but companies w 100+ employees might not work with DPC?
- (11:11) Will you tell our audience about IRC 213d involving FSA, HSA, and HRA and how that might allow DPC to expand?
- (12:31) The news has been talking about co-ops closing up shop. Please share your theory why this is happening.

- (18:33) If you were the “healthcare Czar” and could magically replace the ACA, how would you redesign the healthcare system?
