Overview

With first-hand knowledge of health care intricacies from both the employer’s and employee’s standpoint, Mark F. Herbert presents a non-partisan solution to the health care debate in "Plan B: The Alternative to Obamacare". Herbert posits that current proposals to solve America’s health care crisis (from both sides of the Congressional aisle) have only addressed one component of the problem: point of delivery. Herbert broadens the view of health care to investigate additional issues such as the caregiver shortage, personal competency, social literacy, and adverse selection. Drawing on his years in the human resources field, Herbert gives specific examples of health care management that have succeeded and failed and then explains how these examples can be applied to the national crisis. This ebook analyzes the Affordable Care Act and presents both pros and cons about the individual mandate.
