Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Clear and simple, an invaluable primer on health insurance. The Silver Lake editors aim to educate consumers on all types of insurance, and health insurance is surely among the most baffling. Furthermore, as the authors point out, a result of changing employer/employee relations has been a change in how people get—or don't get—health insurance. Readers must be prepared to understand options and make informed choices—with the help provided here, this is not an impossible task. The authors begin with basic mechanics and key definitions, then go on to cover the various categories of insurance, from traditional indemnity (or fee-for-service), through major medical, managed care ("known for its atrocities"), Medicaid/Medicare, workers' compensation, and special coverage (for example, in case of cancer). They then explain in detail how to choose insurance for individual situations. As they realistically point out, when it comes to insurance, "problems don't surface until you make a claim which is denied or underpaid"—and for that inevitable occurrence, here is help sorting it all out. Most importantly, the authors advise, be ready to review health insurance coverage annually: no matter how onerous the task, it's the only way to maintain adequate coverage in a fast-changing field. A timely lesson, then, on an important subject.
