Dear Librarians,

It's a great time to need medical care. Doctors can offer an endless array of medications, surgeries, and tests that would have been hard to imagine even a decade ago. But there's a catch. The cost of this care is skyrocketing, and treatments are growing out of reach for many of us. What's more: The money that you can save on health care could go toward your many other household needs - or just other stuff you'd rather be spending your money on.

To add insult to injury, about $700 billion of the annual healthcare tab in the United States is wasted on unnecessary care, medical mistakes, preventable conditions, and lack of coordination between health providers. And though we read a lot about the big players in health care could do differently to cut healthcare costs, virtually no one is talking about what the public can do to save money.

Other countries show us that more medical care doesn't mean better health. Join me as I reveal some of the most egregious problems with a medical system gone awry, showing you how to better navigate the system and the upcoming changes. I offer you cost-effective and potentially life-saving ways to get more out of health care while using less of it.

To your health,
Dr. Cindy Haines
