Should you find yourself doing battle with a health insurance company or hospital, I have three words of advice: get this book!
(PRWEB) March 08, 2016
Acclaimed medical insurance advocate Adria Goldman Gross, FIPC, has written a new book entitled Solved! Curing Your Medical Insurance Problems (Outskirts Press), which provides clear, step-by-step guidance through what Ms. Gross calls “our modern medical money maelstrom.” The book is available on Amazon.com, and since being released, it has consistently ranked among the top 100 bestsellers in both the health and health law categories, respectively.
Solved! Curing Your Medical Insurance Problems was co-written by former Harvard professor Douglas Winslow Cooper PhD, and praised by consumer protection advocate Ralph Nader who noted: “Who hasn't been bewildered and outraged by lengthy, inscrutable medical bills and the tricky ways of the health insurers? Learn what to watch out for in this volume by authors who know the inside ways of sellers who try to take you to the cleaners."
Written for laypersons in a clear and engaging style by Ms. Gross, who is the CEO and founder of MedWise Insurance Advocacy and MedWise Billing, Inc., the book covers a broad range issues that are directly relevant to anyone who has ever received a medical bill that they either don’t understand or don’t agree with, or who has inexplicably or unfairly had their insurance claim partly or wholly denied. Key topics include:
- The essential importance of being “fee-wise” about medical bills and insurance coverage
- How to diagnose and reduce medical bills
- Questions to ask after a suspected hospital over-charge
- How to successfully challenge an incorrect or inflated medical bill
- Medicare considerations and appeals information
- Affordable Care Act (ACA, OBAMACARE) appeals
- Out-of-Network protection legislation
- Medicare Supplement (Medigap) and Medicare Advantage plans
- Catastrophic coverage plans
In addition, readers will find many patient information resources, and Ms. Gross shares moving insights about her major health challenges, including beating epilepsy.
“The driving forces behind my work are gratitude for being healthy and concern for those who are struggling,” commented Ms. Gross, who dedicates much of her time to speaking at health-focused nonprofit organizations. “I have decades of professional experience helping individuals and families fight erroneous billing and mistaken denial of medical insurance coverage claims, and it’s my personal calling to protect people from being abused and bilked, when what they deserve from their insurer is to be supported and strengthened.”
"Should you find yourself doing battle with a health insurance company or hospital, I have three words of advice: get this book!" noted Bill Hogan, co-author of Are Your Prescriptions Killing You?
"Much of what Ms. Gross does for her clients, patients can do for themselves with the help of this book,” recommended Andrew Fitch, Product Manager at Nerd Wallet. “This is a must-read for anyone who's felt lost, angry, or confused after receiving a medical bill."
As noted, Ms. Gross’s timely and topical new book Solved! Curing Your Medical Insurance Problems is available now from Amazon.com, and BN.com and retails for $13.95 (paperback) and $6.99 (Kindle). Volume discounts for organizations and associations are available.
