From the Inside Flap:

It's no secret that the health care system in the United States has spiraled so far out of control that many within the country cannot afford the cost. The fact is, health care is all about money—how much we spend, where the money comes from, and who controls it.

Nobody understands the challenges this situation presents better than J. Patrick Rooney, former chairman and CEO of Golden Rule Insurance Company, and Dan Perrin, one of the nation's top Health Savings Accounts experts. For nearly two decades, they have worked to inject key market-based solutions into a health care system that has been increasingly supported by government financing, which doesn't seem to be improving the situation. Now, with America's Health Care Crisis Solved, Rooney and Perrin reveal a sensible solution to the difficult dilemma of how to get care for everyone at reasonable costs.

Engaging and informative, this book highlights the major pitfalls of our current health care system and shows why, without changes, health care costs will soon demolish the American economy as well as the opportunity to receive quality care. However, contrary to the increasingly popular idea of a government health plan, the alternative presented by Rooney and Perrin brings the self-interest of you, the American consumer, into the equation.

Rooney and Perrin succinctly explain their innovative plan for reducing the cost of health care—which includes an approach known as Fair Care—and examine how this system will put our government in a better position to effectively finance the health care process. Topics covered include:

  • An in-depth look at the essential elements of Fair Care health financing

  • Why Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), one of the most effective devices for controlling health care spending, work

  • How hospital prices are driving health care inflation in the United States

  • How the uninsured can defend themselves from excessive charges

  • What it takes to create a national marketplace for health insurance

  • A new phenomenon known as quick care clinics, which enable people to get essential medical care without the high price of emergency rooms

  • And much more

In the coming years, various financial and political factors will shape the way the American health care system is reformed. Taking the time to understand these issues today can help you as a health care consumer tomorrow. Read America's Health Care Crisis Solved, and discover the practical solutions that can change this system—and your life—for the better.

J. Patrick Rooney is recognized as the pioneer of Medical Savings Accounts—now known as Health Savings Accounts—and is the former CEO of Golden Rule Insurance Company for over two decades, building the organization into the largest insurer of individual health insurance policies in the country. Even Paul Elwood, the father of managed care, has acknowledged Rooney's influence, telling Rooney, "we are in the age of the rise of Health Savings Accounts."

From the Back Cover:

Praise for America's Health Care Crisis Solved

"All Presidential candidates—as well as everyone else—must read this insightful book. Rooney and Perrin brilliantly show how the health care crisis can be positively solved in a way that will give the best of all worlds—more health care at less cost."
—Steve Forbes, Chairman & CEO, Forbes

"Pat Rooney is the man who came up with the concept of Health Savings Accounts as a way to cut medical costs, give power to medical consumers, and provide health coverage to rich and poor alike without either bankrupting the nation, ruining the best health care available anywhere in the world, or forcing providers and patients alike to dance to the tune of bureaucrats with little empathy for either. This book analyzes the health care 'crisis' so much on the lips of politicians these days and provides a solution that reasonable people should ponder as they work their way through the overheated and often wrong-headed solutions advanced by leading politicians of both parties."
—David A. Keene, Chairman, The American Conservative Union

"Rooney and Perrin have changed the course of health care in the United States, and they did it by bringing Americans the best tax break in the code: tax-free deposits, tax-free withdrawals, and tax-free interest—in the form of Health Savings Accounts. Anyone who is going to be involved in the second great health care debate (the first being HillaryCare) should read this very readable book."
—Grover Norquist, President, Americans for Tax Reform

"J. Patrick Rooney and Dan Perrin know that much of what we call the health care 'crisis' would go away if we transferred direct control over the flow of health care dollars from big institutions to individuals and families. How? Enact a refundable health care tax credit for every American; introduce medical savings accounts into Medicare; and make health care prices, especially in hospitals, transparent. An excellent, hands-on guide for consumers and voters, this book comes just in time for the 2008 Presidential elections."
—Edwin J. Feulner, PhD, President, The Heritage Foundation
