Informed Decisions: Consumer Health Care Insurance Education Consulting

Why Medical Professionals Love This Book!

We have heard from a lot of doctors and other insurance people that the information in Don’t Buy THAT Health Insurance: Become an Educated Health Care Consumer is really helpful to them. Too often the patients think that you are the monster and they don’t understand how the health insurance companies are really the monsters that are eating their health care.

The Insurance Monster
  • Why do you charge what you charge for your services?
  • Which health insurance plan should I choose?
  • What is high deductible health insurance?
  • Why are you no longer in my network?
  • How does my health insurance work?

You tell me – what is the most important thing you think your patients need to understand, so that they can be educated consumers and be more involved in their health care decisions? You don’t have the time to answer all these questions nor do you really have the answers. The solution to your patient’s problems lies within them. Once they read how we came to have this type of free market system, what your role is and what their responsibilities are in their own health care, they will be able to answer the questions they are asking you all on their own!

Based on the feedback I have received, this book is a resource that can help your patients answer the questions like:

  1. I am new to this country.  I don’t understand your medical system and I need help making choices about my own or my family’s health care options.
  2. How do you set your prices?
  3. Why did you drop out of our network?
  4. Can I see you if I don't have insurance?
  5. Which health insurance plan should I choose?

If you own a company or manage a company benefit plan, you know that renewals are never fun.

Did you know that your employees can help you LOWER your annual renewals?

It can be a team effort!  Your employees can help you control costs!  The first step toward cost control is education and awareness.  Until they know the rules, however, they can’t help you to help them!

Your health insurance broker shops and negotiates your health insurance each year.  They may also be able (on a limited basis due to HIPPA regulations) to manage some help with claim issues.

Things You Should Know About the Affordable Care Act

There are 32 million people in the United States who don’t have health insurance.  They may not be able to get it because of pre-existing conditions, they may not be able to afford it, they may have chosen not buy health insurance and 1 in 4 uninsured is an illegal immigrant.

Many uninsured people use the emergency room as their primary care MD which is an enormous financial drain on our health care system.

Effective 2012, insurance companies will no longer be able to deny or drop sick children from coverage.

Effective 2012, parents can keep their dependent children on the health insurance until they are 26 years old.
