The Guide to Buying Health Insurance, and Health Care
The health insurance industry has changed. Gone are the days when you paid your premium, and your plan picked up the tab for all your health care. Nowadays the average deductible is over $2,000, which means that you will have to pay for most, if not all of your health care in any given year. Even worse are the dirty marketing tricks used to sell health insurance. You can spend thousands of dollars a year on a policy that you'll most likely never use, or you can spend even more to get a lower deductible that only gives you the illusion of better coverage. In this book physician and licensed health insurance agent Dr. Kevin Wacasey shows you how to save money on health insurance, and health care. First he cuts through the complexity of buying health insurance, by proving that upgraded plans with supposedly better coverage often end up costing more than you could ever save. Next Dr. Wacasey takes the reader along as he shops for a health insurance plan, then using a simple formula to compare ten different scenarios (pulled straight from healthcare.gov), Dr. Wacasey demonstrates that - in all ten cases - the Bronze plan will end up saving the consumer the most money. Both in sickness, and in health. Finally Dr. Wacasey reveals how much health care goods and services really "cost," and offers tips on how patients can save money on everything from ambulances to operations. Individuals, business owners, and anyone else who has to pay for health insurance, or for health care, will find Dr. Wacasey's book invaluable as he shows how to save lots of money - yet receive better care than ever before - in the first consumer-driven health care system the U.S. has ever known.
