Note to our followers: Our nearly 13-year run of daily publication of new content on HealthNewsReview.org came to a close at the end of 2018. Publisher Gary Schwitzer and other contributors may post new articles periodically. But all of the 6,000+ articles we have published contain lessons to help you improve your critical thinking about health care interventions. And those will be still be alive on the site for a couple of years.

It works for rap, why not for health care speak?

Health Care Reform Gangnam Style,” is the headline of a clever column by Lisa Suennen on The Health Care Blog.

Her premise:  if a company can get a $15m venture fund investment to interpret rap lyrics, why isn’t anyone hitting on what she calls the “number one market opportunity: explaining healthcare speak to the masses.”

“Have you ever seen an Explanation of Benefits from your insurance company?” she asks. She also cites as examples a document for public comment issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, and the AMA website’s FAQ about HIPAA.

Read it and weep.
