Tate provides a clear and non-partisan assessment of the so-called Affordable Care Act. He provides succinct explanations of the impacts--both positive and negative--of the act on different groups and outlines some of the hidden and not so hidden costs of the act. He accurately cautions the reader that all of the implications and effects of the act will not be know for a number of years to come and as the regulations that derive from the act are written and gives a timeline for the implementation of the act. Tate's book was very illuminating to me and I have recommended it to family, friends and my physician.

The book gave a clear and easy to understand explanation of what the law will mean to various people and how it will work. It also explained that the details of the exchanges are yet unknown. It detailed the tax changes for various income levels. But as of yet, the cost of the insurance and what will be available are unknown. To me, the bill as described in this book, will be a very expensive nightmare for the country.

I bought this guide expecting to learn what ObamaCare's effects would be on those living within states refusing to create "exchanges". My question remains unanswered...tho' it is probable that the ObamaCare law is so murky that no answer can be humanly discerned. Overall, this guide appears a fairly good summary of what is currently known regarding the new taxes referred to as ObamaCare.

I got quite a lot of information from the book. I still would like to know just how as a senior my health care will change. Will I get the treatment I need, Will we as seniors be cast aside as to old and not deserving of care. Will be we given care as needed or will we be put on a list and have to wait? Will the board have all the say and not my doctor. Does anyone really know what is to come?

It is all very frightening. My husband is a cancer survivor. Could they decide, if he needs more treatment, that he is out of luck? I never thought that our United States of America would come to this. We do need reform in healthcare, but not this.

It ended up being more geared toward fear mongering than useful facts. I don't think I would recommend it for it's actual content.

I'm glad I purchased and read this book, but was surprised at repetition in the book where it appears that whole paragraphs are just copied and pasted... The "Did you know" segments are a rehash of information previously read a page or two earlier, or info you will read in a page or two.. This certainly isn't reason enough to avoid this purchase. I believe this is an essential read for all Americans.

I was really disappointed in the book Obamacare and had been looking forward to reading it. I had hoped that it would have some specific information but it was just "double talk" about the information already out there. On the one hand it gives "dire information" and then writes "wonderful advantages to some" but then also "excludes others". So what does all this mean? My husband took a "crack" at it and found it uninformative as well. Thankfully it was a small book and not the "bible size". I am half way through it and still haven't gotten any information that is really specific. Wouldn't recommend it unless it need something to make you sleep!

Nick Tate has done an excellent job in translating all of the legal language of the bill to common language that all of us can understand. It is well worth the cost of the book and more. He also offers a website of his where you can sign up for an email newsletter to receive any updates that come out after the publication of the book. I would recommend this book to everyone who wants to know just how ObamaCare will affect you and your family.

I was hoping to extend my knowledge of the Affordable Healthcare Act which would help me help others. I just completed reading "Understanding Health Policy, Sixth Edition" which is a text book for healthcare professional. I was hoping for more specific information about the Affordable Healthcare Act. This book is about rehashing political propaganda. As a retired CPA and Auditor of Veterans Healthcare operations, I find the book misleading in several respects. ObamaCare Survival Guide

I assure you having lived in England with nationalized healthcare the ACA is not what is being sold. At least not in the long run. Additionally, having attended the London School of Economics studying health economics and comparative health systems, and I assure you that the bill as currently written definitely benefits some and penalizes many. Don't look to those who hold political beliefs similar to your own to learn about the ACA, read the bill yourself and make your own judgements. Also realize that the bill is implemented in stages so the world won't end on January 2013, but the effects of the bill will slowly unfold through the years. I suspect what we will end up is exactly what the government has done to Social Security and Medicare, fix what doesn't work with short-term patches rather than addressing the real structural problems within a policy. This is clearly a book for those opposed to the ACA, but don't fool yourself that some of the information it contains is not true because it comes from a conservative news outlet.
