I get it.
Even with numerous healthcare advisors, you still want to do your own research.
You still want to read and find out ways on how you can make better personal healthcare decisions.
I have a few books to share with you.
You might scroll through these three choices and think – hah, these are not necessary insurance-related books. Sure, but how are you going to make calculated personal healthcare decisions without knowing what your personal financial situation is?
Consider the three books below.
Let me know if you have others to recommend!
‘Get a Financial Life: Personal Finance in Your Twenties and Thirties’ by Beth Kobliner
While this book says it’s for people in the twenties and thirties, you’re never too late to learn.
This book helps you clean up your act when it comes to your finances. Doing so will help you figure out where you stand and, in turn, make better and more calculated personal healthcare decisions.
The author tackles topics such as finding deals on insurance policies, homebuying, and reining in your spending habits. Very apt for those of you facing challenges in these areas.
‘The Price We Pay: What Broke American Health Care-And How to Fix It’ by Marty Makary
I’m always for transparency and healthcare literacy. I’m always educating my clients on the best ways they can get healthcare plans that are customized to their needs.
This book is a tell-all insight into the world of healthcare in America. It’s a bit of a difficult read, especially for someone like me in the industry. But it’s a great reminder of the need for transparency and trust to actually get what we need versus what is shoved into our faces.
Save yourselves from paying crushing amounts on insurance and getting nothing in return. Know what you have, what you need, and what you can get. You can always give me a call if reading this book is not something you have time to do. My 15-minute healthcare consultation is free.
‘An American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back’ by Elisabeth Rosenthal
This book’s synopsis on Amazon describes it as “investigation into our dysfunctional healthcare system – and offers practical solutions to its myriad problems.”
Which is the very reason why I think this is something you should read before making personal healthcare decisions.
Through this book, you can get a better understanding of what makes the American healthcare system, its pros and cons, and the solutions you can actually take away for yourself and your loved ones.
