Dave Chase_280Here’s a description of the film:

The Big Heist is a satirical, follow-the-money film on the destruction created by healthcare’s status quo…. And the redemption that’s coming. It will create hope and catalyze action to thwart the greatest immediate and future threat to our country. We’ve gone to war for less than what the healthcare status quo has done and is still doing to our country.
The Big Heist = The Big Short + An Inconvenient Truth for our broken healthcare system.
The problem: We all know healthcare is broken. But most of us don’t know why, how much damage it causes, or that we can fix it.
The solution: The Big Heist follows the money to answer these questions. A shocking inside look at how healthcare’s financial incentives are bringing our country to its knees by wasting trillions of dollars and how we can fix it.
Existing films don’t follow the money This is why people think fixing healthcare is impossible. Healthcare films are also too wonky or partisan and typically lack the humor to reach broad audiences.
The storyline
  • What: The healthcare status quo has caused widespread damage in every corner of our country and economy.
  • Why: Follow the money. Nearly all damage has been caused by economic rewards that incentivize bad behavior. Some organizations and people have taken these incentives to appalling extremes.
  • How: The replicable fixes already exist and have been implemented by forward-leaning people and organizations.
  • Action: How every person affected by its damage can take action to fix it.
