1. Never Pay the First Bill: And Other Ways to Fight the Health Care System and Win
Author: by Marshall Allen
Portfolio (June 22, 2021)
From award-winning ProPublica reporter Marshall Allen, a primer for anyone who wants to fight the predatory health care system-and win. Every year, millions of Americans are overcharged and underserved while the health care industry makes record profits. We know something is wrong, but the layers of bureaucracy designed to discourage complaints make pushing back seem impossible.
At least, this is what the health care power players want you to think. Never Pay the First Bill is the guerilla guide to health care the American people and employers need. Drawing on 15 years of investigating the health care industry, reporter Marshall Allen shows how companies and individuals have managed to force medical providers to play fair, and shows how you can, too.
He reveals the industry’s pressure points and how companies and individuals have fought overbilling, price gouging, insurance denials, and more to get the care they deserve. Laying out a practical plan for protecting yourself against the system’s predatory practices, Allen offers the inspiration you need and tried-and-true strategies such as: Analyze and contest your medical bills, so you don’t pay more than you should Obtain the billing codes for a procedure in advance Write in an appropriate treatment clause before signing financial documents Get your way by suing in small claims courtFew politicians and CEOs have been willing to stand up to the medical industry.

Author: by Carol Kranowitz
The groundbreaking book that explains Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)-and presents a drug-free approach that offers hope for parents-now revised and updated. Does your child exhibit… Over-responsivity-or under-responsivity-to touch or movement? A child with SPD may be a “sensory avoider,” withdrawing from touch, refusing to wear certain clothing, avoiding active games-or he may be a “sensory disregarder,” needing a jump start to get moving.
Over-responsivity-or under-responsivity-to sounds, sights taste, or smell? She may cover her ears or eyes, be a picky eater, or seem oblivious to sensory cues. Cravings for sensation? The “sensory craver” never gets enough of certain sensations, e.G., messy play, spicy food, noisy action, and perpetual movement.
Poor sensory discrimination? She may not sense the difference between objects or experiences-unaware of what she’s holding unless she looks, and unable to sense when she’s falling or how to catch herself. Unusually high or low activity level? The child may be constantly on the go-wearing out everyone around him-or move slowly and tire easily, showing little interest in the world.
