Bloomington, IN, United States, 2009/08/27 - Author and medical doctor Arndt von Hippel advocates lower health insurance costs in his book, Better Health Care at Half the Cost.
US President Barack Obama has been pushing for health care reform ever since he was elected to office in 2008. As part of his administration's effort to make health care more accessible for every American, the White House is now asking help from doctors in promoting the planned health insurance overhaul.
In the President's proposed reform, health care insurance would be made more available in all its forms, provide more options for the public, and generally lower the cost of medical care. Enlisting the aid of doctors indicates that the administration is depending on interest groups to support the health insurance reforms.
The ongoing health care reform issue is not only a concern for the Obama administration and the politicians who have the ability to approve or decline the proposals, but this most importantly impacts professionals in the medical field, health insurance companies and the American public who is at the receiving end of this conundrum.
There is a need for everyone involved - the physicians, politicians and patients - to know important insights about health care related concerns. Dr. Arndt von Hippel, in his self-published book Better Health Care at Half the Cost, covers health-related topics ranging from the economy, the medical/industrial complex, taxation and outsourced jobs, to inexpensive remedies for certain health issues.
The author explains how cheap and effective treatments benefit the patient while discussing hundreds of ways to reduce health care costs and improve patient outcomes. Von Hippel further empowers patients by reviewing what medical care can and cannot achieve, and why screening tests and biopsies often give ambiguous results.
Better Health Care at Half the Cost will certainly give legislators and laymen the leverage they need to make better decisions concerning health care and eventually pass laws that will not only benefit insurance companies, but more importantly make health care more available and affordable to everyone.
