“Maura Carley has written an important book for anyone who has to navigate our nation’s fractured, fragmented, inadequate health insurance system.  Case studies, drawn from years of experience helping individuals and families, provide insight into how these defects can affect us.  No one will emerge from reading this book without a deepened understanding of how today’s insurance model leaves us vulnerable to tragic medical and economic consequences.”

“There is no clearer explanation of how Medicare works than Health Insurance: Navigating Traps and Gaps by Maura Carley.  Every person going onto Medicare should read it and every person on Medicare should read it.  Throughout the years Maura Carley and her colleagues at Healthcare Navigation have always given me and my family terrific advice regarding my choices in health care.  In Navigating Traps and Gaps Ms. Carley also explains that in addition to understanding Medicare it is imperative that you understand your retiree medical benefits and how they can change or even be eliminated. Read this book.”

“I have built several companies and always made sure that I had excellent healthcare coverage. When I sold my last company, I was faced with a transition to Medicare. This was a traumatic, processing nightmare.  Medicare choices used to be simple, but not any more. I received invaluable expert advice and guidance from Maura Carley and her staff at Healthcare Navigation and I recommend that anyone dealing with healthcare decisions especially Medicare, read Health Insurance:  Navigating Traps and Gaps.”

“I was stunned when my wife and I were denied insurance and truly flabbergasted when my infant granddaughter was also denied insurance.  Fortunately I was referred to Healthcare Navigation and they resolved our problems.  They are the experts.  Now Maura Carley has written Health Insurance:  Navigating Traps and Gaps.  If you want to protect your family and learn about our broken healthcare system, read Maura’s book.”

“I read about Healthcare Navigation in the Wall Street Journal.  That was a lucky find.  They helped my wife and me with several coverage transitions including relocation.  I had no idea the extent to which moving affects your health insurance and the bureaucratic headaches one can face.   The next best thing to Healthcare Navigation’s skillful support is Maura Carley’s book, Health Insurance:  Navigating Traps and Gaps.   I recommend you read it.”

“Healthcare Navigation was an important part of my support team that helped me with the challenge of recovering from pancreatic cancer.    They were there at every step of the way during my illness. I don’t know what I would have done without them.  I handed-off much of the burden I was dealing with to their skilled staff.  If you’re going it alone, I highly recommend you read Health Insurance:  Navigating Traps and Gaps.”

“Maura Carley’s firm, Healthcare Navigation, is an indispensible part of my family’s (three generations) life.  Now, through her book, Health Insurance: Navigating Traps and Gaps, she can also be an indispensible part of yours.”

“Maura Carley’s book, Health Insurance: Navigating Traps and Gaps is an indispensible guide to the arcane world of health insurance.  The most precious asset anyone has is their health.  Biomedical research is accelerating and remarkable new treatments are being developed but without understanding how to maintain proper health insurance, those treatments may be beyond reach.  Maura Carley has spent most of her career understanding the complexities, technicalities and irrationalities of health insurance. Her book is full of wisdom that comes from decades of practical experience. Obtaining the right health insurance is critically important and Carley’s book is the best source of information on that vital topic.”

“Maura Carley’s enlightening book, Health Insurance:  Navigating Traps and Gaps, should be in the horror section of the bookstore. These real-life stories tell the chilling tales of coverage gaps and insurance disputes that kept patients in a perpetual state of pain. As a private Emergency Medicine physician, I want my clients’ pain and heartache to heal ASAP. It’s troubling to think that medical insurance coverage, or lack of it, can extend this heartache. Maura has helped many of my clients avoid or recover from such events. In Health Insurance: Navigating the Traps and Gaps, she offers clear and common sense steps that would benefit anyone, particularly in the dynamic time of shifting healthcare policies.”
