About the Book

In an emotional story that details one woman's struggle within a medical organization that was filled with massive illegal billing, her faith shines through.

Healthcare Under Duress:An Inside look at the University of Washington Billing Scandal presents one woman's personal account and experience within a prestigious University Hospital (UWP).

This case is unique, representing the issuance of the largest fine ever given to a medical teaching institution within the United States for billing fraud.

For years, Swannee Rivers maintained hope of one day seeing justice served. In 2000 the FBI arrived, giving her that opportunity.
