MONROE, N.Y., Dec. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- It's a cycle we keep feeding year after year: Americans indulge over the holidays and then make New Year's resolutions to get healthy. The great majority of us also tend to overlook something else that needs to be healthy – our health insurance plans. Sometimes it isn't even our fault. The maze of confusion in our healthcare system can more often resemble a sad joke instead of the safety net for good health that it is supposed to be.

Adria Gross, FIPC, founder and president of MedWise Insurance Advocacy, is the co-author of "Solved! Curing Your Medical Insurance Problems." The book helps people figure out complicated medical bills, educates them on how to deal with unexpected medical expenses and clarifies the mysteries of the American health insurance system. Whether they have a private health plan, Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, or employer provided medical insurance, many Americans don't take advantage of the coverage they have and the benefits they are supposed to receive because they aren't familiar enough with how to work within the system.

"People sometimes feel powerless when they get stacks of paperwork from their insurance company for the simplest procedures. America's healthcare system can be a nightmare of a maze that seems impossible to get through without getting screwed," said Gross. "I've seen how hard life can be for those with aggressive medical conditions, who, lacking critical information, struggle to understand when they are being overcharged or abused in their weakest moments. My goal is to keep that from happening to everyone."

"Solved! Curing Your Medical Insurance Problems" is available in paperback on Amazon.
