Reducing Medical Costs (At the Cost of Health)

by Reynold Conger

(Kellan Publishing maintains author pages on its web site. Learn more about Reynold and his book by going to Reynold's Author page.)

Traditionally, healthcare decissions were made by the patient, and his or her doctor. With the advent of Obamacare, more and more decisions about treatment are being made for you by the government. This novel points out the dangers we face when a government agency what treatments you are qualified to receive.

To make the story more exciting, I added one more dimension. In the story, Medicare is running out of money. This agency must find a way to cut costs, especially on those patients who need expensive treatments. Mercy killing is out, but what if. . .

All but one member of the Conway family are engaged in one or another medical art. Now the entire family finds itself in danger. They know too much about plots to limit health care costs by making sure high cost patients die early. They have evidence that two members of the family have died at the hands of medical murders.

Thugs have been following them and threatening their lives. Now two of the patriarchs are hiding in the mountains. Can they survive both the thugs and winter in the mountains, or will the information they have be lost if they die?

Obamacare May Be Replaced

President Trump has promised to replace Obamacare, but that will not solve the problem.

Projected release date is January of 2018. I will keep you up to date on progress.

Stoned for His Faith, is a Christian novel about an American pastor who writes a book instructing Christians how to witness to Muslims. Mullahs are angered by the book. They seek justice as required by sharia.

Read how Pastor Randy Koenig responds to this threat to his life.
