Obamacare: Dead on Arrival, A Prescription for Disaster discusses, in detail, the most horrific legislation concerning health care ever to emanate from the bowels of Washington. Encompassed in this work are many first hand accounts how people were hurt and even killed when services were rationed. On demand care will be a memory as this egregious legislation is fully implemented. Scarcities in services and pharmaceuticals will become the norm. As the system is overwhelmed by an influx of patients, limiting services will be the only way to manage the medical system. Dead on Arrival describes a full array of methodologies government will use to keep you from medical care that use to be routine. Costs will skyrocket each year as the system adjusts to the new bureaucracy being fashioned to manage it. Access, as promised by politicians, to the health provider of your choice is a myth. Instead a great bulk of the nation will be assigned to health centers and their various personnel who may not be up to the task of managing your care. The book goes behind the scenes to display why your lifespan could be limited by a series of bad decisions forced on health providers by an out of control government bureaucracy. Wealthy individuals and others believe the new system will not affect them. This is an error on their part. One can be waivered from the economics of Obamacare but not care itself. America has one health system and every aspect of its management could potentially be affected by a legislation that should have died on the steps of the Capitol Building. Each of the books' chapters are replete with information concerning all aspects of Obamacare and how this abomination could potentially affect you. To survive under government intrusion into health care, one must be fully informed. Obamacare: Dead on Arrival, A Prescription for Disaster fulfills that aim and much more. This is one book that will greatly enhance your knowledge and could potentially save your life.

The medical profession and health care in general has deteriorated over the past twenty years. It has become plagued with fraudulent behaviors. It is difficult for individuals to know if they are being scammed. Fraud unfortunately exists in all aspects of health care today. In 2011, $2.27 trillion was spent on health care and more than four billion health insurance claims were processed in the United States. It is an undisputed reality that some of these health insurance claims are fraudulent. No institution has undone more quickly and more completely than American medicine. In only a few decades, the medical system has been overrun by organizations seeking to exploit for profit the trust that susceptible and sick Americans place in their healthcare. No doctor wants to be identified as being out of step with medical practice norms. Furthermore, most health care providers do not want a decrease in profit margins as well. This book is about the millions of Americans who have access to what some would call the best medical care in the world but are being swindled. Of course, there are millions of uninsured Americans whose access to care is heartlessly limited. The problems of fraudulent health care described in this book are less likely to transpire to the latter group, simply because they receive less medical care. This book is about the relentless expansion of medicine and our health providers increasing tendency to only make a diagnosis so that further treatments can be done to increase their revenues. Americans have been taught to be concerned about their health. We are all aware that types of hidden jeopardies prowl inside of us. The conventional wisdom is that it's always better to know about these dangers so that something can be done. That's why we are so enthusiastic about amazing medical technologies that can detect abnormalities even when we reason we are well. That's also why we welcome the identification of risk factors, disease awareness campaigns, cancer screening, genetic testing etc. Americans love a diagnosis so that they can receive attention and health care whether or not it helps them. But it's also true that we do receive too much of it in some circumstances. Some people are diagnosed and treated needlessly by swindlers who do unnecessary or dangerous treatments to increase their profit which is one reason why this book was written. Our legislators have proven themselves either unwilling or incapable of reining in the increasingly outrageous costs faced by patients, and market-based solutions only seem to funnel larger and larger sums of our money into the hands of corporations. Impossibly high insurance premiums and inexplicably large bills have become facts of life. The majority of health care frauds are committed by a very small minority of dishonest health care providers. Unfortunately, the stock in trade of fraud-doers is to take advantage of the confidence that has been entrusted to them in order to commit ongoing fraud on a very broad scale. Another reason for this book is to inform individuals that rewards can be made by reporting health care fraud by becoming a whistle blower. Health care consumers need to identify these health care fraudsters and report them to ultimately attempt to salvage what remains of our health care structure. Fighting Medicare fraud is an important part of safeguarding our healthcare for future generations. Health deception costs Americans billions of dollars. We all must do our parts to reverse this trend. If you suspect that something has happened illegally with respect to medical care, then it is your duty to blow the whistle. Doing so makes you part of the solution. This book addresses the types of fraud which plague the healthcare industry and describes the most common fraudulent behavior throughout this industry and how to report fraud and possibly receive a reward. We must all do our part in trying to save our health care system!

Unable to win a hearing from Hilary Rodham Clinton's Health Care Task Force, Keyser takes his impassioned attack on "managed competition" to the public. PRESCRIPTION FOR DISASTER offers a brief, accessible discussion of where the current system has gone wrong, apportioning full share of responsibility to medical education, the medical & legal professions, the medical-industrial complex, the pharmaceutical & insurance industries, cost shifting & the public itself. Keyser also outlines a framework for effective reform: a single-payer system blending elements of the Canadian & German approaches; major modifications in medical education; significant expansion of outcomes research; a no-fault approach to most medical malpractice; inclusion of long-term care & the medical element of workers' compensation programs; & negotiated pharmaceutical pricing & distribution of high-tech medical equipment. By spelling out in some detail the implications of the approach suported by such groups as Public Citizen, Citizen Action, & Consumers Union, Keyser makes a solid contribution to a critical public policy debate.

Few people realize that prescription drugs have become a leading cause of death, disease, and disability. Adverse reactions to widely used drugs, such as psychotropics and birth control pills, as well as biologicals, result in FDA warnings against adverse reactions. The Risks of Prescription Drugs describes how most drugs approved by the FDA are under-tested for adverse drug reactions, yet offer few new benefits. Drugs cause more than 2.2 million hospitalizations and 110,000 hospital-based deaths a year. Serious drug reactions at home or in nursing homes would significantly raise the total. Women, older people, and people with disabilities are least used in clinical trials and most affected. Health policy experts Donald Light, Howard Brody, Peter Conrad, Allan Horwitz, and Cheryl Stults describe how current regulations reward drug companies to expand clinical risks and create new diseases so millions of patients are exposed to unnecessary risks, especially women and the elderly. They reward developing marginally better drugs rather than discovering breakthrough, life-saving drugs. The Risks of Prescription Drugs tackles critical questions about the pharmaceutical industry and the privatization of risk. To what extent does the FDA protect the public from serious side effects and disasters? What is the effect of giving the private sector and markets a greater role and reducing public oversight? This volume considers whether current rules and incentives put patients' health at greater risk, the effect of the expansion of disease categories, the industry's justification of high U.S. prices, and the underlying shifts in the burden of risk borne by individuals in the world of pharmaceuticals. Chapters cover risks of statins for high cholesterol, SSRI drugs for depression and anxiety, and hormone replacement therapy for menopause. A final chapter outlines six changes to make drugs safer and more effective. Suitable for courses on health and aging, gender, disability, and minority studies, this book identifies the Risk Proliferation Syndrome that maximizes the number of people exposed to these risks.
