The Health Plan Guide for Women: How to Shop for a Plan & Get the Most Value
Todays health care plan is not the one-size-fits-all plan of the past. It covers more ground, offers more choices, and makes more demands on us as consumers. Managed care is the supermarket of health care. To understand it, we need to read the labels, do some research, make comparisons, and ask questions. It includes a historical perspective on managed health care, how to compare plans and judge quality, and what rights you have as a consumer and patient.  (AVAILABLE EARLY 2002)
