The Empowered Patient: How to Get the Right Diagnosis, Beat Your Insurance Company, Buy the Cheapest Drugs, and Get the Best Medical Care Every Time, by Elizabeth Cohen

(Ballantine Books Trade Paperback, $15.00)


This book is loaded with practical, useable information, from how to communicate effectively with your doctor to how to buy health insurance to how to use the Internet wisely for medical information. Cohen, a medical correspondent with CNN, uses dozens of patient stories to illustrate her points, and often offers a health care provider’s perspective or insights as well. She ends each chapter with a “checklist,” which makes the book very easy to use.

 

This book would be a good resource for any of us, whether we are dealing with a chronic illness, caring for someone with a chronic illness, or just looking to become wiser about the health care we receive and the medicines we take.
