Dear Readers; This is what one Publisher's Weekly reviewer had to say about my novel, BMM, "This dystopian screed against government-run health care is as hyperbolic as it is tedious. The author makes do with bare sketches of characters to illustrate the paranoid depiction of a future where the government lets children die when families have exceeded health care quotas and then mercilessly hunts those who go outside the system" I have not revealed this before but now the case of Charlie Gard in England makes it a timely statement of the naivete of so many in this country - .

So on November first I received my new health insurance premium - my 565 per month went to 900.80 per month -that's with 6550 deductible - so I am downgrading to an HMO - for that I will be paying 646 per month also with a 6550 deductible. My guess is thatn eventually we will all be down to medicaid - so quality of care is no longer the highest priority.

I figure I'll be buying my own healthcare on the black market soon - should have placed my novel in current time

I feel like I'm about to go over a cliff - CF sent me a note saying your new health ins rate is coming. Just send it already. When I try to go online, well you know...

Remember when the gov't told us we had the worst healthcare? If that was the worst what do we have now?

already hearing of 65% increase in health insurance in MD woops we are headed over a cliff

Gov. Dayton now saying what the public already knows or will know very soon. The ACA is not affordable.

"Through EHR's a dr is pushed to start a 'preferred' med or not to order a testthe computer deems unnecessary" Dr. Gardner, Dr.Levinson

Study now showing Solo practitioners do a better job of taking care of patients than "groups."

Patients enrolled in Medicaid have same outcome as those w/ no insurance. second class healthcare is on the rise

So now one of the crafters of the ACA is admitting that studies show that solo medical practitioners give better and more efficient care than groups. Sad - as so many solo physicians have given up - retired or become administrators

Please someone explain to me why it is ok for the hospitals to have gov't approved medical doctor groups with various specialties called "medical homes" but when doctors do it it's called "fee splitting?"

Thought it would be fun to show original artwork which served as basis for cover art for Black Market Medicine!
