In my healthcare opinion...

I work in the healthcare industry as the practice administrator for a family practice clinic. I've had the pleasure of being in healthcare for more than eight years.

I started a receptionist, then did billing, then became an assistant administrator and in 2005 was promoted to Practice Administrator.

I love my job. And I really enjoy working in healthcare.

This blog is dedicated to all things healthcare. My hope is that through my posts, you (the reader) can become a better patient and ultimately, a better consumer of healthcare.

I'll help you understand how insurance works (or, doesn't work in some cases), why healthcare providers do what they do, how you can get the best bang for your healthcare buck, and what you can do to improve your health and the health of those you love.

Every once in a while, when I'm feeling particularly frisky, I'll throw in some of my thoughts on healthcare policy (which is the topic of the day most days).

My main objective, though, is to educate.
