Introductory Profile: About Sam Pagel

My interviewee is Sam Pagel and I know him because he is my uncle. He works at a healthcare company and he has a Master's in Business Administration and a Master's in Healthcare Administration. Sam has been happily married for 22 years and has a son and a daughter. He is down-to earth, and speaks his mind, which added an element of passion to the podcast.

Discussing healthcare issues can be tense as people have strong personal, political and economic opinions. This podcast, however, was calm and cordial. We discussed HMO plans, managed care plans, saving for healthcare, and the other options available to people in the United States. Sam's thoughts were not only based on his education and experience in the health insurance industry, but also as a husband and father with a family.
