The purpose of this book is to effectively untangle and expose nearly all of the deceptions that occur in medical billing, prescription drug pricing and the health insurance industry in the U.S. Throughout the book I use actual medical bills and receipts along with data I’ve obtained from the financial disclosures of hospitals, insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies and government databases to back up each and every claim I make.I guarantee this book will make your head spin because, as bad as you think our healthcare system is, it’s actually far worse and this book will show exactly why and how that’s the case. Also, even though many people think they know what the health insurance companies are attempting to do, they’re probably wrong.David Belk got his medical degree from the University of Southern California School of Medicine and has a solo practice in Alameda California. He began exposing irregularities in medical billing and prescription drug pricing with his website The True Cost of Healthcare in 2011.His brother Paul Belk got his PhD in medical physics from a joint program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard Medical School. He works as a senior scientist in the medical industry.
