Financial Professional’s Guide to Healthcare Reform
John Wiley & Sons is excited to offer a singularly unique book analyzing the legislation that is at the forefront of this year’s Presidential Election and Supreme Court schedule. At a time when many Americans are confused about whether Obamacare is the right choice for the country, two of the nation’s leading healthcare industry consultants offer their unparalleled insights into the legislation and what it actually means for the financial incentives that drive the way healthcare is delivered. Starting with a review of the history of health insurance in America and past reform attempts, the book proceeds to examine Massachusetts’ Romneycare, the model for Obamacare, and then devotes an entire chapter to explaining how health insurance actually works. Chapters devoted to the Medicare and Medicaid programs follow, including modifications wrought by the legislation. The individual mandate at the core of the Supreme Court challenge is then explored, as are insurance subsidies, health insurance Exchanges and the massive restructuring of the healthcare delivery system’s financial incentives.
This book is distinguished from others written by academics and political consultants in that the authors actually work in the industry every day and have more than 60 years combined experience advising physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers as well as negotiating with health insurance companies.
