I'm sick of talking about healthcare. Maybe you are, too. It's in the news nonstop, and it's in that stack of bills and insurance company denials on your desk. At least income taxes are only a head-splitting problem once a year. Healthcare has become a chronic, 12-month ache.
But we both know that we've got no choice. It's too important to ignore. Not like the old days when you just put yourself and your family in the hands of an all-knowing doctor and thought you had done everything you could. Of course, it was never that simple, and some of those docs were better off being second-guessed. Today there is certainly more of a burden on the consumer to help find the best experts and the best outcome, but there is also more information to guide you. Smarter patients can make doctors better. A few doctors are even willing to admit that.
