Are you confused by Obamacare and all the political heat it's generated?
Obamacare For Smarties helps you choose a health plan so you don't buy more insurance than you need – or less.
But it's not just another guide to the Affordable Care Act "for dummies" – nor does it dwell on the politics of Obamacare, which can distract you from your best choices to comply with the law while protecting yourself and your family.
In addition to helping you determine any benefits you're entitled to under Obamacare, it also guides you on how to deal with your insurance company – from understanding what their plan does and doesn't cover to appealing denied medical claims. It helps demystify insurance so you get the full value of what you're paying for.
But that's just for starters. The health plan you choose will shape how you use the healthcare system itself. But it shouldn't dictate it.
It's important, therefore, to look beyond just insurance premiums – because they're just the tip of the iceberg. You need to understand deductibles, co-pays and co-insurance to really appreciate what you're healthcare will actually cost beyond your insurance premiums.
That's why Obamacare For Smarties isn’t just a guide to getting the most from Obamacare, but a challenge to its fundamental premise that greater access to healthcare is always a good thing.
America’s healthcare system is riddled with inefficiency, lack of coordination, and perverse incentives to over-treat patients with often dangerous medical interventions that aren’t always needed.
This isn’t an environment for careless reliance on doctors and hospitals, but rather one requiring extreme caution and even skepticism.
Obamacare For Smarties helps you rethink your healthcare needs – because a third or more of our healthcare isn't needed in the first place.
Obamacare For Smarties prepares you for the pitfalls in our healthcare system once you have health insurance.
We all need to become smarter medical consumers – because much of our healthcare is bad for our health.
And isn't protecting your health the whole idea behind health insurance?
By avoiding unneeded healthcare, you both save money and avoid medical injuries that are a hidden scandal.
Only dummies buy the conventional wisdom that all healthcare is good without taking the precautions outlined in this book.
