Our health depends on good medical care. We all have our opinions about how medical care should be dispensed, but more and more our medical options are being preempted by government programs and government regulations. We are increasingly at risk of having government regulations force us into undesirable healthcare situations.
I mentioned in my post, Publishing Activities, that my latest book is now under contract with Kellan Publishing. The medical thriller, Reducing Medical Costs (At the Expense of Health), is now in production. It will be released in late May.
This book is about a family that finds both government bureaucrats and insurance company underwriters forcing them into medical options they did not want. That theme alone would probably not have given me enough material for a thriller but the plot includes a conspiracy. In spite of their best efforts, bureaucrats, in this book, are having difficulty keeping Medicare within budget, and secondary insurers are losing money as well. They must find a way to further reduce costs. In particular, they ponder how they can reduce the cost of the very expensive patients.
I will not be a spoiler at this time except to tell you that the bureaucrats and insurers get desperate enough to have to resort to illegal activities. The Conway family blunders into the middle of the conspiracy that is intended to reduce medical costs. Now they know too much. Family members are stalked. Strangers are listening to family meetings. Bullets fly. The risk to family members continues to increase.
In future posts. I will introduce you to the Conway family. I hope you enjoy the book once it is released.
