Washington, DC --The Independent Institute is pleased to release the compelling new book Priceless: Curing the Healthcare Crisis by John C. Goodman, renowned “Father of Health Savings Accounts” and leading expert on free-market healthcare solutions, which demonstrates how market forces have been driven from the American healthcare system. Priceless is the first book to attack these misguided practices at the fundamental level and demand that patients and their providers, not policy-makers, be empowered with the freedom to chart their own healthcare map.

In Priceless, Goodman cuts through the party politics and proposes bold reforms that would liberate patients and caregivers from the traps of a third-party system. Rather than pursuing programs that encourage overconsumption and mandate citizens to participate, Pricelessshows:

  • The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—a.k.a. ObamaCare—is the result of a special-interest feeding frenzy.
  • Patient safety could be improved by allowing patients, doctors and hospitals to enter into voluntary, no-fault contracts.
  • True reform requires liberation — freeing doctors, patients, and the American workforce.
  • The widespread adoption of Health Savings Accounts would cut costs by 30 percent or more.
