What Happens Now with Healthcare? An Interview with Dr. Kris Held – Episode 249

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young invite Dr. Kris Held back onto the show to discuss the future of healthcare reform now that Trump is in office. They talk about what went wrong with the recent bill that went through Congress and what President Trump and the rest of America needs to do to get a workable, affordable system in place for the country. It’s a critical issue that citizens must act on to prevent the government and insurance companies from controlling your health.

Kris Held, M.D. is a board-certified ophthalmologist and ophthalmic surgeon who is in private practice in San Antonio and maintains an academic affiliation as a Clinical Professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

Dr. Held has read, reported on, and participated in tweeting about the entire Affordable Care Act. She is co-founder of AmericanDoctors4Truth, co-creator of, and a member of the Physicians’ Healthcare Workgroup working with physicians from across the country, including physician Congressmen, to draft a template for true patient-centered, market-driven healthcare reform.

In addition to her recognition in Best Doctors in America, Dr. Held has been named to America’s Top Ophthalmologists, Texas Super Doctors, and San Antonio’s Top Doctors. She also received The Shining Scalpel Award from The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons “In recognition of her outstanding service to the American people and the profession of medicine by ‘cutting’ through the political rhetoric regarding ‘healthcare reform.’”
