Why is America's health care system so expensive? Why do hospitalized patient receive bills laden with inflated charges that come out of the blue from out-of-network providers, or that demand payment for services that weren't delivered? Why do we pay $600 for Epipens that contain a dollar's worth of medicine? Why is more than $1 trillion-one out of every three dollars that passes through the system-lost to fraud, wasted on services that don't help patients, or otherwise misspent? Overcharged answers these questions. It shows that America's health care system, which replaces to make health care as expensive as possible. Prices will fall, quality will improve, and medicine will become more patient-friendly only when consumers take charge and exert pressure from below.

The biggest threat to America's prosperity, and even his solvency, is the mismatch between the amazingly and increasingly competent science of medicine and the amazingly and increasingly incompetent pricing and allocation of it. Here come Silver and Hyman to frighten us with the facts, and to point to ways the biggest player in the healthcare game – the government – can stop making matters worse. – George F Will

Overcharged is a detailed, useful, and timely diagnosis for what ails America's healthcare system from a free-market perspective. Anyone interested in how to bring healthcare coverage to more Americans – without agreeing or disagreeing with the author's view of what ails American healthcare – will gain greatly from their penetrating analysis of every facet of the system.
