Why is more than $1 trillion-- one out of every three dollars that passes through the American health care system-- lost to fraud, wasted on services that don't help patients, or misspent? Silver and Hyman reveal a system that performs as if it had been designed to spend as much money as it can, and to be as confusing and unfriendly as possible, with no accountability. They detail real reforms, showing how health care can become more efficient and pro-consumer, and will only get better and cheaper when consumers exert pressure from below. –Summary from back cover of book
