Unrivaled Resources and
Relationships for Managing Risk
there is a lot we can learn from each others’

The Price We Pay
Dr. Makary’s newest book is an eye-opening, timely, urgent critique of America’s broken healthcare system. Drawing from on-the-ground stories, his
research, and his own experience, The Price We Pay paints a vivid picture of
price-gouging, middlemen, and a series of elusive money games in need of a
serious shake-up. Dr. Makary shows how so much of healthcare spending goes
to things that have nothing to do with health and what you can do about it.
Dr. Makary also untangles medical bills that are so confusing most doctors
can’t interpret them and challenges the medical establishment to remember
medicine’s noble heritage of caring for people when they are vulnerable.
The Price We Pay offers a roadmap for everyday Americans, as well as business
leaders, to get a better deal on their health care, and looks at the disruptors
who are innovating medical care. The movement to restore medicine to its
mission, Makary argues, is alive and well—a mission that can lower costs and
save our country from the crushing cost of the medical industrial complex.
