How to Survive a Stroke and Your HMO

by Russell Wright
How to get the best possible post-stroke care from a managed-care provider

Written for stroke survivors and their caregivers, this guide offers practical solutions for working with HMO health-care providers to get the best possible after-stroke care. By learning how HMOs work, stroke victims can avoid many of the problems that others encountered with them. This manual concentrates on recovering from a stroke in a managed-care situation rather than on listing the shortcomings of managed-care providers so that stroke victims can concentrate on getting the best possible care from their HMO and getting on with their lives. This handbook also details the lifestyle changes that can reduce the likelihood of additional serious health setbacks.
