Healthcare is Broken Too!

Topics today:
* Understanding the new Medicare "Physical" program
* Insurance Denials - Critical information for patients and providers

My guest today is Tom Force, Esq. He'll be talking to us about how both patients and providers can join forces against the insurance companies to make sure they pay for legitimate medical services. Contact information for Tom is:
