Health care reform terms

A new edition of the plain language dictionary covering terminology not ordinarily found in standard medical references, such as the definition for "cherry picking" (when an insurer covers people who are healthy, and drops anyone who gets sick). The entries include acronyms and organizations, and the volume also features four appendices supplying a timeline of US Health Care, advice on tracking down medical information, issues in health care reform, and a bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
