Library Journal - Library Journal
This book, written by the directors of the Peoples' Medical Society, gives instruction on how to ask logical and informed questions about medical treatment, how the medical system works, and how it bills for services, to help people become active participants in their health care. It covers choosing a form of health care and a provider, medical insurance policies and payments, and dealing with Medicare paperwork and co-payments. The nursing-home and alternative-care section answers what questions should be asked about services and payments, and saving money when making a selection. The book is filled with useful tables, which include medical abbreviations, insurance and Medicare work forms, names, addresses, and toll-free phone numbers for support organizations; medical, dental, and nursing-home licensing offices; state health departments; and Medicare carriers. A list of books on varied medical and health topics is followed by instructions for using local library resources. Recommended for public and health-care libraries.
