The pack includes: "Patient's Playbook: How to Save Your Life and the Lives of Those You Love" by
Leslie Michaelson and "The Healthcare Survival Guide, Cost-Saving Options for
the Suddenly Unemployed" by Martin B Rosen and Abbie Leibowitz, co-founders of
Health Advocate.

The Patient's Playbook:
Too many Americans die each year as a result of preventable medical
error—mistakes, complications, and misdiagnoses. And many more of us are not
receiving the best care possible, even though it’s readily available and
we’re entitled to it. The key is knowing how to access it.

The Patient’s Playbook is a call to action. It will change the way you manage
your health and the health of your family, and it will show you how to choose
the right doctor, coordinate the best care, and get to the No-Mistake Zone in
medical decision making. Leslie D. Michelson has devoted his life’s work to
helping people achieve superior medical outcomes at every stage of their lives.
Michelson presents real-life stories that impart lessons and illuminate his
easy-to-follow strategies for navigating complex situations and cases.

The Patient’s Playbook is an essential guide to the most effective techniques
for getting the best from a broken system: sourcing excellent physicians,
selecting the right treatment protocols, researching with precision, and
structuring the ideal support team.

Along the way you will learn:
Why having the right primary care physician will change your life
Three things you can do right now to be better prepared when illness strikes
The ten must-ask questions at the end of a hospital stay
How to protect yourself from unnecessary and dangerous treatments
Ways to avoid the four most common mistakes in the first twenty-four hours of a
medical emergency
This book will enable you to become a smarter health care consumer—and to
replace anxiety with confidence.

The Healthcare Survival Guide:
The Healthcare Survival Guide(TM): Cost-Saving Options for the Suddenly
Unemployed and Anyone Else Who Wants to Save Money, winner of the Benjamin
Franklin Award(TM) for Best First Book (non-fiction), contains dozens of
resources to help find affordable healthcare coverage and health services for
anyone who has lost their employer-paid healthcare or who simply want to reduce
healthcare costs. Written in easy-to-read language, readers will learn the pros
and cons of COBRA coverage, how to comparison-shop for health plans, and use
little known ways to lower or eliminate hospital bills, get free medical care
and find low-cost medications. There are even tips to stay healthy to reduce
doctor visits. With important contact websites provided on every page, this slim
but dense book can be a real lifeline for unemployed workers who need healthcare
now. The authors are cofounders of Health Advocate, Inc., which funded the
publication of this book. The authors and the publishing company have received
no funding from any other outside source or any other organization referenced in
the book. A portion of the book sales will be donated to charity. The book's
