BUFFET BEZOS AND DIMON: Healthcare disrupters?

A corporate dream teams joining forces to try to tackle what billionaire Warren Buffet calls  a “hungry tapeworm” feasting on the U.S. economy--health care.

Amazon.com, Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. said they plan to collaborate on a way to offer health-care services to their U.S. employees more transparently and at a lower cost. 

The three companies plan to set up a new independent company “that is free from profit-making incentives and constraints

The companies did not say whether the project would expand beyond Amazon, Berkshire or JP Morgan. 

Shares in health care companies took a big hit in early trading Tuesday, hinting at the threat of the new entity to how health care is paid for and delivered in the U.S.
