"Maura, thank you for letting me review a draft of the book. I couldn't stop reading it. I am so grateful for all the help and support you gave me and my children during such a devastating time in our lives. Your words brought me right back to the time when we were struggling to maintain our family unit after David's death, and the frustration we went through with our health insurance being canceled. Thank you again and again for all that you did. I hope that our story will spare a widow or widower's family from being confronted with the same termination of coverage problems that we experienced." --Luci Watson, Darien, CT
"Maura Carley has written an important book for anyone who has to navigate our nation's fractured, fragmented, inadequate health insurance system. Case studies, drawn from years of experience helping individuals and families, provide insight into how these defects can affect us. No one will emerge from reading this book without a deepened understanding of how today's insurance model leaves us vulnerable to tragic medical and economic consequences." --David M. Lawrence, Chairman and CEO (retired), Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, Inc., San Francisco Bay Area, CA
"Today we have many new, convoluted health care laws, ever-changing health insurance Plans, and eligibility/enrollment rules. Making the best choice is akin to finding the proverbial needle in a haystack. But help is here--Maura Carley's book, Health Insurance: Navigating Traps & Gaps, is a must-read reference. It will inspire you to take action to protect your family's savings, medical coverage and peace of mind." --Peggy Fleming Jenkins (and husband Greg Jenkins, M.D.) Olympic Gold Medalist in Figure Skating, San Francisco Bay Area, CA
