Required Reading About Healthcare

As a financial planner, I talk to people about saving up for emergencies, and having adequate insurance coverage.  There are situations where all the prudent planning in the world won’t help you.  We don’t talk about it much, because it’s an extremely uncomfortable truth.  That’s why I’m asking you to read “Bitter Pill: Why Medical Bills Are Killing Us” by Steven Brill at Time Magazine.  It’s an astonishing exposé on medical billing practices, and why getting sick in the U.S., for many, also means getting a bankruptcy.
