Smart Patient (Paperback)
Did you know that 95 percent of people surveyed by the Kaiser Family Foundation don't have basic health insurance knowledge? This important information isn't taught in school, and the trivial amount of training from employers is not enough. It's no wonder that 57 percent of Americans cited medical debt as a contributing factor to bankruptcy, says the American Journal of Public Health.
Smart Patient - What You Need to Know about the U.S. Healthcare System combines real stories of patients, professionals, and entrepreneurs, revealing the problems encountered in the American healthcare system and speaks to those looking to get the best value for their medical visits. Did you know that much of healthcare is set up to stifle questions concerning bills and insurance coverage? Would you be shocked to realize that one in three medical bills have errors?
You will learn:
- Ways to save the most money on medications or medical visits
- How to negotiate medical bills
- What you must know about health insurance and its benefits
Smart Patient offers practical guidance on how to avoid the "potholes" to get the most for your buck in an entertaining, easy-to-read, and to-the-point style.
