Publisher Comments:

Now that the health care reform bill has become the law of the land, millions of Americans will need help figuring out exactly how the new system will work and how it might affect their lives.  

This guide will teach people how the new health care exchanges are supposed to work.  In an easy, conversational manner, David Nather makes a complicated system easier to understand by answering all your questions.  Such as:. 

*How to apply for help in paying for insurance?

*Will your healthcare change if you work for a big company or a small company?

*How will the legislation affect you if you receive individual insurance, if you're uninsured, or if you are

on Medicare?

*What new protections are you supposed to get from the worst health insurance practices?

*Why did Congress decided everyone should be required to get health insurance?

For people who arent lawyers or policy wonks, but simply want to make sense of what to expect in their own lives, this book will be a must-read.

Review:

"Providing clear, concise answers to countless questions about sweeping health care reform signed into law by President Obama in early 2010, Nather, a senior writer for Congressional Quarterly, has created an indispensible guide. From changes in Medicare and Medicaid to issues of long-term care, from health insurance exchanges to financial assistance for premiums, Nather's handbook addresses all essential topics in a manner more thorough than anything provided so far by news sources. With easy-reference headings, tables for coverage dates, numerous web and phone resources for further facts, and more, this will be a valuable resources in the coming years as the law's changes roll into effect. In addition to the mechanics of reform, Nather addresses preventive care, medical decision-making, cost-cutting, and even paying for health care reform. His efficient, humorous, nonpartisan prose - succinct yet highly detailed - makes this an indispensable guide for anyone unsure of what 'The Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act' will mean to them."
