Format: Paperback
As someone whose family is between jobs during the Open Enrollment period, I found this book very helpful in wading through the waters of health insurance options. The author seems to speak to most every topic related to the new health insurance laws, and her answers were easy to understand. Due to its recent release, all of the web sites listed were functional which was definitely a plus for me. I actually found this book at my local library and so did not purchase it here, but I wanted to review it because it was very useful to me. It is offered for $13.59 at amazon as I write this review. If I had had to purchase it for that price, I would not have been disappointed.

For anybody concerned about health, who has health insurance or is planning to buy it, or who wants to understand the Affordable Care Act (ACA), this book is a must-read.

Author and nurse Michelle Katz currently works as a health care advocate on ABC World News, and she proves herself here to be an amazing interpreter of a program that for most of us is all but indecipherable. Her objective explanations of all aspects of the new insurance programs established by the ACA are succinct and comprehensive.

This 230-page narrative is presented almost entirely in a question-and-answer format that simplifies the reader’s search for specific questions. The book is divided into four sections. The first explains the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare; the second explains how to choose a health plan; the third describes how to use your benefits; and the fourth explains how to control health costs.

That all sounds dry and sterile, but Katz does a wonderful job of making the book read as if it were written by a favorite uncle giving solid advice. It seems that Katz is the kind of person who is capable of deciphering any unreadable contract.

-Key Questions Answered-

The author starts off by briefly describing the 10 essential health benefits of all plans: ambulatory services, emergency services, hospitalization, maternity, mental health, rehabilitation, laboratory services, wellness, pediatrics, and prescriptions. Katz describes the bronze, silver, gold, and platinum health plans Obamacare forces all insurance plans to conform to, and she simplifies topics ranging from exemptions in coverage to the rare cases where old plans can be grandfathered in and retained.

I checked this book out from my local library.

This book does a really nice job of making the issue for health care a little more understandable and a little less confusing.
The book is broken up into 4 parts
1. How the Affordable Care Act Affects you
2. How to Select the Right Healthcare Plan
3. Using your Health Insurance Benefits Wisely
4. Controlling Your Healthcare Costs

I have health benefits through work but I wanted a basic understanding of what the ACA entailed and this book does a really nice job of explaining it. It also helped me to understand what essential things are mandated coverage in health plans now, something you never really had explained to you. The book is written in a Q&A style, and in doing this it keeps you realize questions you didn't know you wanted to ask, but are glad to find answered. I am a note taker when reading a book like this and found it really nice that within the text websites etc. were listed with more information. What really surprised me is at the end of the book there is a bullet list of the important topics and websites mentioned throughout the book. Not just a mile long list of references to muddle through. If nothing else if time is limited you can get a really quick summary with this list of online references to explore.

So I think this is a book that anyone will find useful information within, written in an easy to understand manor.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a small business owner with an individual healthcare plan. My plan this year went up 160% (as compared to 8,12% in the two previous years). So, I am now forced to shop around with no real knowledge of what to do. What I liked about the book is it is set up with FAQ sections. It reminded me of Steve Jobs giving us things we didn't know we wanted. This gives answers to questions we wouldn't know to ask...or even know at all. It gave me the information I needed to shop around and find the best plan for me. I just did and saved myself real $$$$. Worthwhile investment and easy to understand.

I just saved $10,000 off my last medical bill by putting into practice what Michelle talks about in this book! I wish I knew about this book earlier!!!! Her tips are amazing and they work and I have the websites she mentions all book marked on my computer. I was also super confused and overwhelmed with all the Obamacare stuff and this book makes it simple....I found out that I qualify for an exemption by following her advice and using the website she provides in the book. Thank you Michelle!!!
