twihl 5x5For our Diamond Podcast, our guest is Russell Korobkin, Vice Dean and Richard C. Maxwell Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law, where he teaches ContractsNegotiation and Health Care Law. Russell has published more than 50 law journal articles in the fields of behavioral law and economics, negotiation and alternative dispute resolution, contract law, the health care law and stem cell research, and has also published several books.

In the lightning round, Nic focused on the AARP’s challenge to wellness programs, and further empirical research on the Oregon experiment. Frank discussed news coverage of past guest Ameet Sarpatwari’s work, and a study on the use of scribes to promote better data gathering and analysis (and relieve physician burnout).

Our discussion with Russell focused on his article, Relative Value Health Insurance. We discussed the benefits and drawbacks of tiering in health care, and how consumers’ price sensitivity could promote more valuable care plans.
