Save your sanity, time & money!

You need to know how to meet your medical and/or mental health needs NOW. You're struggling to survive moment by moment. And you need your dignity.

You're rushing to appointments (the ones you remembered) and/or wondering which treatment to use. Meanwhile, your costs are rising, your needs are changing and you hardly know how to make sense of what to do first, second and later. What about the emotions boiling inside you? How can you calm down with all that's going on?

A former medical coder and medical writer, I've been in your position. I survived a life-threatening emergency with information only a person with my professional experience would know: How to find medical innovators, medical experts and charitable organizations willing to pay part or all of an applicant's specific medical costs, who has software to simplify medical appointment scheduling, a sensible list of items to pack for hospital stays, and more.

I knew that I'd pulled through because of my ability to connect with resources I needed. I knew that most patients lack that knowledge. I decided to provide it, to minimize your suffering.

I believe in empowering terrified, confused and unhappy people with dire diagnoses. I believe that patients should not suffer insults to their dignity in medical settings. I provide information that can help you to manage your problems better, maybe to end them, in the book.

Calm down. Organize your life better. You just might get your grin back.

Fallout is Hitting the Fans Due to the US' ICD10 Delay


Nisan 4, 5774

What does this mean to Americans 
and their medical care?

1) Hampered communications between worldwide medical researchers and medical professionals who've used the ICD10 medical coding system since 1996!!!

2) As for the inevitable crippled ability of US insurance companies: 

  • Americans will receive smaller medical insurance reimbursements than ICD10 could have facilitated.

  • We medical coders and your medical professionals lack the means to prove that your care costs more than it used to, or was invented after the creation of the Internet.

I kid you not. The federal government of the USA tripped up US health care by passing that HR 4302 bill. 

By the way, NOT ONE legislator read the line about delaying ICD10 aloud - during 5 hours of televised coverage of the HR 4302 bill passage event!

Did they sign a contract without reading the entire document? Fail to understand its implications?

Well, no matter what, or how to pin the blame...

You're stuck in 1979's standards of ICD9 medical coding. It will cost America a LOT of money.

The entire medical and medical coding worlds are reeling from that development.
