How To Navigate the American Healthcare System

This week on I Don’t Care, Host Kevin Stevenson sits down with an author that has made it his mission to teach people how to navigate the healthcare system, arming patients with the proactive education needed to shop around for the best healthcare and insurance options while preventing unnecessary or overly costly treatments.

After 28 years working within the American healthcare system, Dr. David Wilcox has seen enough in the medical field to realize that it truly is a “business” as opposed to the kind-hearted healing service that most people might imagine it to be.

His new book reveals some unsettling facts and offers information, facts, and tips for patients and family members who are navigating through this morass. Along with revealing what he has learned over the last 28 years, he also offers helpful hints on how patients can avoid becoming victims of an industry that seems intent on profiting at all costs rather than providing quality care for its clients. 

 This book is a wake-up call for all of us who are taxpayers, or soon will be. It provides the tools needed to avoid being caught in this system that unfairly targets certain groups and takes away our rights as consumers without providing necessary care.

Dr. David Wilcox wants people aware so they can protect themselves from getting netted into an unfair spiral – having their lives negatively impacted by high premiums with no options; denied coverage because you have pre-cancerous cells or “preexisting” conditions; over treated until you’re a candidate for hospice rather than making more money for the same incompetent doctors who read MRI’s upside down and prescribe meds that most people wouldn’t dose their dogs with.

He also goes into what most of us wish we had known before our experience with US healthcare, including how to deal with a surgeon who is drunk or high on the job, or why some doctors and hospitals just don’t care.
