Product Overview

From the highly praised former New York City Public Advocate and author of "The Consumer Bible," a one-stop guide to everyone's rights and options to protect their health, their money and themselves--complete with real-life examples, practical advice and resources.
Patient, client, employee, taxpayer, consumer--it's time to defend yourself! Why should anyone tolerate an HMO not paying for his wife's emergency surgery because he didn't give notice beforehand, or accept a higher insurance rate because she lives in a low-income community, or be charged a "restocking fee" for returning defective merchandise?
A large body of laws and regulations exists to give average workers and consumers the tools to talk back and fight back. "Defend Yourself" is a detailed guide to help readers navigate:
- Health care (fight big insurers and obtain life-saving prescription drugs)
- Employee rights (fight discrimination at work and protect unemployment benefits)
- Consumer laws (shop safely on the Internet, assert your rights when a product is recalled for safety reasons)
- Financial services (avoid unfair banking fees, prevent identity theft, deal with debt)
- Taxes (filing, dealing with audits and collections)
- Investing (fight broker or corporate fraud)
- Small business, community organizations and much more
In a world of powerful big business and ineffective big government, "Defend Yourself" is an invaluable guide for everyone.
