Book Description

2 Oct 2012
When President Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, he handed Americans one of the most sweeping pieces of social legislation in U.S. history. Now that the Supreme Court has upheld ObamaCare, it is imperative that the American people understand the overwhelming impact it will have on their lives. The Affordable Care Act totals more than 2,700 pages and comprises nearly 500 provisions. For the first time, Humanix Books provides an easy-to-read guide to the law and its implications for every American. The ObamaCare Survival Guide: The Affordable Care Act and What It Means for You and Your Healthcare is the first guide book to help Americans understand the intricacies of ObamaCare. It serves as a valuable resource for those currently insured, those who are not, and the tens of millions of seniors, youth, business people and others who will be affected by the new law. The ObamaCare Survival Guide reveals: · How the currently insured will be affected, including rising premium costs · Medicare shocker: cuts in benefits, new rules · New protections for the uninsured · Hidden fees and levies · New taxes for the affluent · Small businesses, new requirements, tax credits · Prescription drug users: new fees · A timetable for each part of the healthcare plan · Essential benefits insurance companies must provide · ObamaCare’s impact on long-term care · Your responsibilities and penalties under the new laws · How to maximize your healthcare dollar on the new plan · The cost to you as a consumer · And much, much more… The ObamaCare Survival Guide is undoubtedly the most important book you’ll read this year as you prepare for the upcoming changes under this new legislation. Newsmax says, “The ObamaCare Survival Guide is the first and best road map for you to understand the new law. Every American is affected by ObamaCare — making this book essential to you and your family.” About the Author: Nicholas J. Tate is an award-winning journalist and editor who has written extensively about health and consumer affairs issues. After a fellowship at the Harvard School of Public Health, he authored “The Sick Building Syndrome.” His work has also appeared in the Miami Herald, Sun Sentinel, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Boston Herald, Newsmax and other publications. The ObamaCare Survival Guide is terrific. It lays out the truth about ObamaCare. A must read for anyone who is worried about getting good healthcare for themselves—or their employees. - Donald Trump “It’s a powerful guide showing you what Obamacare really means for you personally. I was amazed that so much of the information in this book has yet to be reported. Get informed, read the Obamacare Survival Guide – it will help you protect yourself from this new law.” Michael Reagan “If you really want to find out how Obamacare affects you, your family, your business, there is just one book to read – The Obamacare Survival Guide by Nick Tate. It reveals the shocking impact of this radical plan.” Dick Morris

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Synopsis 26 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wish more people would read this book, instead of relying on sly-innuendo and second-hand information from the various "news" channels and websites and blurbs about. It gives a straight account of what is happening, to who and when, and what to expect. It's not as complicated as some people would lead you to believe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cliff Notes, Dummies Series like - overview of 2700+ pages of changes 12 Oct 2012
By syberlane - Published on Amazon.com
I read this at a Barnes and Nobel because open enrollmenet season is upon us and have noticed several trends that appear to be troublesome over the past 2 years. In short, this "guide" explains somewhat potential and current changes to health insurance and its implementation. Though I never purchased this piece of literature, I did read it cover to cover and do recommend it for anyone who wants a heads up with regards to what to expect and why. There are a series of laws, fees, penalties, surcharges, and requirements that impact everyone from the self employed, unemployed, small business owner, corporation, LLC, and retiree that rolls out over the course of about 8 years and for 11 bucks, a quick stop at the local library or book store will give just about anyone a heads up of what's to come.

The 1 negative review I read indicated that if you are a right winger this book was for you and if you were a left winger forget it. Sorry, but in my opinion information is information whether you like it or not, I suffer through MSNBC, PBS, CNN, and Fox that way I can decide, not let someone else do it for me.

All the best

5.0 out of 5 stars OBAMACARE FOR DUMMIES 101 7 Nov 2012
By Letty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had heard many stories about ObamaCare and I wanted to know just how it would affect me and my family, personally, step-by-step. I needed a "Dummies" book and found this book to be very helpful in finding out more about that dreaded subject. The chapters are organized so that I can refer to the ones I most need at the moment. There are blank pages where I have documented what I must remember. It is easy to read and the quality is exceptional. Thank you, Nick Tate, for clearing up some questions for this "dummy" and presenting others to think about. The price is good and no one should be without it as this thing will affect everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gives pros and cons 6 Nov 2012
By Txkittiehawk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a nurse and over 65 and wanted to know more about what the law entails and the timelines that are coming. Regardless of your politics, this explains the law in simple English. It's a good idea-trying to get everyone healthcare, but making it a law-and government forcing me-leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
There will still be large groups who we will have to pay for as they go to the Emergency Rooms-the homeless, illegals, those who can't afford to buy the insurance.
Bottom line you and I will pay for ourselves and those that can't/won't.
The crooks in Washington have exempted themselves from the law.
As a senior, I will be watching the committee IPAB, that will be "Assessing and Evaluating Treatment Options" under Medicare and so should every other other person on Medicare.I prefer to make my medical decisions with my Physician, rather than the federal government.
Get a doctor now before they stop taking Medicare or Medicaid.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected. 19 Feb 2013
By Renman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am in the medical profession and was hoping for a more detailed outlay of information as to how the new health care laws will effect our office practice and patients care. I was hoping for specifics with regards to how and what changes commercial insurance plans will implement. We know that for example that Medicare coverage will most likely see broad changes that will effect both the patient and practitioner. Most of what I read in the book was information that has been available to the general public, and discussed at great length by the media; at least the media I listen to and read.

3.0 out of 5 stars ObamaCare Survival Guide 8 Mar 2013
By M. Reynard - Published on Amazon.com
Ok, to preface, I feel I should disclose that I am all over the place when it comes to politics. Pro-Gun, Anti-GMO, etc. I kind of just bounce around depending on the topic. I do believe everyone should have the right to affordable Healthcare though. So while this book isn't really directed at me in that regard, I actually found a lot of useful information in it. And I didn't even read it by choice, my boss had me read it as background for part of a blog post he wanted written for the company website.

The ObamaCare Survival Guide isn't really a Survival Guide. So I do think it's misnamed. But the sub-title of "The Affordable Care Act and What It Means for You and Your Healthcare" is actually a little more accurate. This is a brief (although biased) guide to the new Healthcare laws coming into effect. There are several different sections; "Welcome to ObamaCare", "ObamaCare: What It Means for You", "ObamaCare: A Multiyear Timetable", "Heath Insurance: Radical Changes Ahead", "The Individual Mandate", "The Expansion of Medicaid", "Health Insurance Exchanges", "Incentives for Small Businesses", "More Benefits, Higher Costs", "Turning the Screws on Medicare", "Cost Control Experiments", "Making Americans Healthier", "Long-term Care", "ObamaCare, Etc.", "ObamaCare's Price Tag", "Protect Yourself Against ObamaCare", and the appendices. As you can tell from the titles of these chapters, the books tries to go into explanation on each part of the new Healthcare law. A lot of it is summary and supposition, but there are genuine facts from the law in here. I especially found the section on Long-Term care to be informative. Especially where it described the new laws that would monitor care at Nursing Homes and make a report available to the public. Every section had charts showing the allocation of pay, the differences in income for applying for help at the new Healthcare exchanges that will be set up, and current Insurance enrollment figures.

Ultimately though, this book is biased. And it's ok to write a biased book. Even though I may not agree with the author, I still appreciate the fact that he did include real facts with his opinions. He just has a different interpretation than I do, and on some things, I actually even agreed with him. I do commend the fact that he took time to point out good aspects of the Healthcare bill, in addition to his complaints and theories on the problems of the bill.

The format of the book was easy to read, and in language that most anyone could understand. The subjects were sorted neatly and transitioning from chapter to chapter was seamless. While it wasn't the Survival Guide the title says it is, this is, as said before, a brief summary of the Healthcare act. I do like that the book was separated into Parts, then into chapters, and then within each chapter it had certain sections highlighted so you can easily find what you are looking for. But don't go looking on strategies to get around the new Healthcare Act in this book, that's not what it was designed to do, despite the title. I think there will be a lot of disappointed people who pick up this book expecting it to be something it isn't. I do have to say that I would have liked to see more information. I know I said there was some in here, but it had the capacity for being much more informative than it actually was. A little less personal opinion and a little more facts would have really made this book a force to be reckoned with.

This gets three stars from me. It was a nice brief overview splattered with personal opinion. But at 200+ pages it could have contained more factual evidence than it did. But it's still a good beginner's book for those looking at the Healthcare law and I can see it being very popular with those people who are not enthused with the new policy.
