Care and Cost (C&C) provides a professional forum on the complex issues surrounding employer health benefits. We aspire to a high quality, conversational environment that welcomes all types of ideas from its users, so we’re setting out simple ways we want to do things that are distinctly different from many other health care sites.
Format. A few times a week we’ll run posts – articles, videos, charts, images – on topics from all of health care. We’ve recruited many thoughtful, experienced, authoritative writers who are practitioners and maintain their own blogs, but we think there is value in aggregating experts into one resource. We’ll also publish, from time to time, pieces that were published in the past, because we think they still have something important to say.
Submissions. Articles about any health care topic are welcome. Please send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. The hosts reserve the right to revise, publish or reject any articles. Published materials may be freely reproduced with attribution to C&C.
Comments. Please comment, but also let us know who you are. No anonymity here. All it takes is providing your name and an email address. If its worth saying, then its worth saying openly. (For special circumstances, please contact us.)
Professional Behavior. While healthy disagreement, humor and even sarcasm are fine, courtesy and a respectful tone are still required.
Factual Support. Perspectives that lack substantiation are opinions. If you have a point to make, offer hyper-linked support that strengthens the argument
We hope you enjoy this site as much as we enjoy putting it together. Got a question or comment. Reach out anytime at email@example.com, or send us a tweet at @bklepper1
