Let A Physician - Who's Also a Health Insurance Agent - Show You How To Pick The Best Health Insurance Plan. And Get The Best Prices on Health Care. Open enrollment is here! Don't even think about picking your next health insurance plan without reading what Dr. Kevin Wacasey, physician and licensed health insurance agent, has to say. In his book Dr. Wacasey cuts through the complexity of buying health insurance by revealing the dirty marketing tricks used to sell it, and shows you how spending more on Silver and Gold plans that have "better" coverage often ends up costing more than you could ever save. For example, would you ever put $3,000 into a slot machine that might pay $1,500 back - if you hit the jackpot? No? Well almost 46,000 Texas teachers did exactly that in 2015, when they paid over $3,000 extra in health insurance premiums to upgrade to a Gold plan, that had a $1,000 deductible. When they could have paid $3,000 less for the Bronze plan, that had a $2,500 deductible. Dr. Wacasey takes you with him as he goes shopping for his own health insurance, and with his Equation proves to you in ten different examples (straight from that when it comes to health insurance plans, the Bronze is almost always the best choice. He also provides a fascinating look at the history of how the health insurance industry took over our health care system, what that takeover did to the prices of health care, and how much health care really costs. With the average health insurance deductible in the thousands of dollars, the managed care era is officially over, so it's time for Americans to rethink how we buy health care. Individuals, businesses, and anyone else who pays for health insurance - or health care - will find Dr. Wacasey's book invaluable, as he shows how you can save lots of money - yet receive better care than ever before - in the first, truly consumer-driven health care system our country has ever known.
