On August 6, 2014, Sean Parnell took part in The Heartland Institute's Author Series on to discuss his new book The Self-Pay Patient: Affordable Healthcare Choices in the Age of Obamacare.

The Self-Pay Patient reveals secrets to taking control of both your healthcare and your health costs, explaining how to find affordable care outside of conventional insurance, how to escape bureaucratic medicine, and how to opt-out of Obamacare.

This Book Explains:

  • How to exempt yourself from Obamacare without having to pay a tax for being uninsured
  • How to find alternative types of coverage that are far less expensive than conventional insurance
  • How to find doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, and other medical providers that provide big discounts for cash payment
  • How to avoid the sky-high healthcare prices that unsuspecting self-pay patients are often charged 

The Self-Pay Patient is a resource for anybody who wants or needs to pay directly for their own health care, including people without insurance, with a high-deductible health plan, or who want to see a doctor out of the insurance company's network or get treatment not covered by their insurance. It's been called "the unofficial guide to opting out of Obamacare" and can save families and individuals thousands and even tens of thousands of dollars a year!
