guide to understanding
What's the difference between understanding the health care system and understanding the stock market?
Well, if you get the stock market wrong, you only lose your money.
Unfortunately, almost everyone is getting the health care system wrong these days. Depending on where you're sitting, the problems we're experiencing with American health care are caused by the heartless HMO's, the overzealous regulators, the greedy doctors, or the overly demanding patients. And while there's some truth to all these explanations, none of them really hits the mark.
This lack of understanding is anything but benign. Until we grasp the true causes of our growing health care crisis, we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes; the crisis will continue to worsen, and eventually we'll all pay the price, deeply and personally.
That's why telling the health care story in a new way, advancing the debate, and - we fervently hope - moving us all closer to a real solution, is a major aim of YourDoctorintheFamily.com.
But that's not our most immediate concern. Our immediate concern is you.
Today in the American health care system you're more alone and more at risk than you probably realize. This is a system growing more dysfunctional - and more hostile - by the day. You need to learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones.
YourDoctorintheFamily.com explores the truth about the American health care system. We'll show what's really behind all the apparent chaos, and help you develop strategies to maximize your benefit, and minimize your risk, whenever you need health care.
We'll explain the
health care system in a way you've never heard it explained
just like a
real doctor in the family
we'll try to provide you with the guidance you
need when the
time comes - as it inevitably will - to make those critical decisions
about your own health care.
