In Priceless, Dr. John Goodman takes the Affordable Care Act to task, rejects the Obama Administration’s vision, and offers a no-nonsense approach to health care reform. Arguing that the United States should create a market for sick people, in which health plans vigorously compete to solve the problems of diabetics, asthmatics, heart patients, cancer patients, and others with high expected health care costs, he maintains that every example of a center of excellence – producing high-quality, low-cost care – originated from the supply side of the market, not the demand side. With practical advice on how typical employers can cut employee health costs in half, Dr. Goodman also examines a variety of health-related topics, including malpractice, insurance reform, and the institution of a privatized Medicare program.
