Compassionate, timely, content heavy, and incredibly well written… After reading it, one hopes that Robertson, one of the true expert voices in health law and policy, continues engineering creative ideas for years and years to come.—Isaac D. Buck, Journal of Legal Medicine

An important addition to a debate that is sure to be front and center in the 2020 elections.—Glenn Altschuler, Florida Courier

Read this important and timely book. Then send it to every politician and health policy wonk you know. Your financial solvency and health depend on their learning what this book teaches.—Arthur L. Caplan, NYU Langone Medical Center

A masterful forensic dissection of the self-imposed plague of health care financing, and options for potential cures. A must-read for all health care students, leaders, and elected officials.—Richard Carmona, 17th Surgeon General of the United States

In this sweeping and superb book, Robertson exposes the dark side of an appealing American narrative: that giving insured patients ‘cost-sharing’ responsibilities is good for us all. Exposed reveals that doing so creates problems much bigger than the one it aims to solve.—Michelle M. Mello, Stanford Law School

Exposed forcefully and persuasively demolishes the shibboleth that the so-called ‘cost-share’ elements of insurance in the U.S. cut costs and improve healthcare decisions and outcomes. A must-read for anyone interested in making sense of the morass of U.S. healthcare.—George Loewenstein, Carnegie Mellon University

A powerful argument against patient cost-sharing. Through extensive data, international experiences, and a deep dive into theory and philosophy, Exposed convincingly demonstrates that charging sick people is not only a blatantly unfair practice, but one that also has little financial benefit and risks further health impairment.—Thomas Rice, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health
