  • Afraid that your health care won’t be there for you when you need it?
  • Think your employer might reduce or drop your insurance coverage?
  • Angry at health plans that try to avoid paying claims?
  • Tired of hearing the same old ideas from politicians?

If your answers to these questions are Yes, listen up. Because even though most politicians don’t want to tackle the real problems in health care, there are real solutions, and not all of them involve a government-run, single-payer system.


This book is about one of the alternatives. It requires more government intervention than we’re used to, and it requires everybody—employers and individuals alike—to pay their fair share. But this reform model retains an important role for free enterprise, and if it were adopted, we could have comprehensive, universal coverage for 30 percent less than we spend today.


THIS IS NOT A DREAM. IT’S REAL. THE KEY PART OF THIS PLAN HAS ALREADY BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TESTED IN MINNEAPOLIS.


So, whether you’re an employer, a consumer, an insurance executive, a hospital executive, a physician, or a policymaker, this is a book you have to read. Find out why generations of health care reformers have been unable to change our system, and what’s really driving up our costs so rapidly. Then see how we could overhaul our health care system to provide affordable health insurance for all without a government takeover.

 

   
 
"Rx for Health Care Reform is just the kind of bold analysis needed today to put reason and common sense back into health policy. The bond between primary care physicians and patients provides a basis for sound decision making in the delivery of care. Ken Terry reviews with great detail and examples why so many American proposals for health care reform have not worked. America can afford high quality health care for everyone without massive administrative costs if we return to the best patient-physician relationship. I hope health policy leaders and health care organizations will take a serious look at this book. It does offer a way out of the mess and chaos we are in."

--JOSEPH E. SCHERGER, MD ; Professor of Family & Preventive Medicine, University of California, San Diego

"U.S. health care is a mess. This very readable book hits the nail on the head in terms of diagnosing the problems and in prescribing some real solutions for the future. This book should be required reading for all clinicians, managers, policymakers and especially patients."

--JONATHAN P. WEINER ; Professor of health POLICY, Johns Hopkins University

"A provocative and stimulating book that examines where U.S. health care is broken, and provides concrete suggestions for the fix. In writing this book, Ken Terry has done more than just good research; as a senior editor for Medical Economics, Mr. Terry has conducted in-depth interviews with many of the people at the center of today’s health care problems and controversies. A ‘must read’ for doctors, nurses, health plan executives, health policy makers, and, most importantly, for consumers."

--PETER BASCH, MD, a Washington, DC, internist and medical director for e-health at MedStar Health
