2014: An Empowered Patient’s Guide to Health Care Reform - FREE Report


In a quest to actually understand the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), I researched and then wrote an easy to read report that I am offering to you for FREE. It’s called, 2014: An Empowered Patient’s Guide to Health Care Reform. I personally wanted to get past all the hype and hysteria and I wanted to help patients and consumers understand it, too.

I set a goal to keep politics out of it (there’s more than enough of that out there already). I vetted the final report with readers on both ends of the political spectrum and they told me I succeeded in keeping it apolitical. Do you agree? I hope you will download it and that you will find it helpful. (Please do let me know.)

I wanted to know what the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is exactly, what it is intended to do and how it intends to do it? I learned that, even though it is the law, it is actually more an “idea” than it is an actual “plan”. And, as is becoming painfully clear, all the players – insurance companies, the government, employers, medical professionals, and consumers – are literally just figuring it out as they go along. No one knows how, or whether, it will ultimately work. Like other major health care reforms (Medicare and Medicare, Part D, for example) it has had a very inauspicious beginning.

We all want to know if Obamacare will be a good thing or a bad thing. (Some have made up their minds already.) Will it work – eventually? No one has any way of knowing for sure. There are too many moving parts and too much is still unknown. Inevitably some parts of it will work – and other parts will fail. There are already winners and losers. Certainly the bumbling way it’s been launched has fueled the massive uncertainty that surrounds it. Past health reform initiatives have sorted themselves out eventually. Will Obamacare?

The uncertainty about it has fueled so much political hysteria that consumers looking for strait forward, unbiased information are finding it hard to find. Everyone has opinions, dreads and hopes but very few people have facts. That’s why I wrote this report.

One fact is indisputable. No one – not even the people who wrote the law – can predict the future with certainty. There are just too many unknowns. How will insurance companies adapt to it? Will healthy young people (a backbone of the idea) embrace it? How will the states adopt it over time? Will it be successful at making affordable health care available for all Americans?

Time will eventually tell but that is going to take years, not months. As for all the prognosticators, they are simply guessing. Whether the gloomy or glowing predictions turn out to be true or false we’ll just have to stay tuned. In the meantime, read my report. At least you will know what the game board looks like.
