Earthquake: How the Ever-shifting Healthcare Model Victimizes Americans
Healthcare in America is littered with confusing rules and unclear systems. The discussion is oft centered on misconstrued facts and downright lies. Some politicians claim that nobody ever died from lack of access, that the Affordable Care Act is unnecessary and American healthcare isn't cost-prohibitive. Some claim no one has lost Medicare or Medicaid coverage and pre-existing conditions don't threaten coverage.
One thing that can't be denied about American healthcare is how often the average consumer is left confused. Earthquake: How the Ever-shifting Healthcare Model Victimizes Americans uses an easy-to-understand metaphor that equates the ever-shifting healthcare system with tectonic plates: just as earthquakes create victims with every shift of tectonic plates, so does the unstable American healthcare system.
Dr. Brian Casull, a physician and physician executive of over 40 years, provides information that will help you escape to solid ground, including discussions about:
- What drives healthcare cost and what you can do about it;
- What the Affordable Care Act does and doesn't do;
- The on-going political assault on your healthcare including pre-existing conditions, preventive care and the 10 essential categories of care you rightfully deserve.
Earthquake aims to give you, the patient and prototype of the healthcare consumer, the information necessary to become informed about America's healthcare system and understand the tectonic plates that make your healthcare shake and tremble. With this book in hand, you can stay up-to-date on America's Healthcare in Transition.
