Details: The Financial Consultants’ Guide to Healthcare Reform provides an historical backdrop on how the healthcare system got to its present state including the Massachusetts Reform and Medicare Advantage along with an explanation of the principal types of health insurance in the United States and how “insurance” actually works.Â A review and explanation of each of the reform provisions follows, including an analysis of what the implications are for providers, consumers, businesses, and what responses each of these communities might have to the reform. Using the authors’ insights and firsthand experiences in US healthcare finance, this book explains the new healthcare law for individuals and businesses alike, what to expect from it, and what actions they need to take to comply. The Financial Consultants’ Guide to Healthcare Reform provides a complete handbook to healthcare reform for financial consultants, both for understanding this important legislation as well as for planning responses to it.
