Summary

Summary

The health care industry has undergone so much change since 1990 that the rules that apply to buying medical services for the past hundred years are useless. Managed care makes doctors commodity laborers. Workers comp becomes the last haven for chiropractors. And HMOs deny bone marrow transplants while encouraging acupuncture. Schlank offers readers tools for untwisting some of the worst complications.

Medicine and Money is a consumer advice title on paying for health care. It includes diverse perspectives, from alternative medicine practitioners to insurance executives, to reach comprehensive conclusions without pushing any agenda.
