ATLANTA, GA (Monday, June 21, 2021) – He’s led Team TGM to IMSA Michelin Pilot Championship success; he’s earned the driver’s championship crown in the Mission Foods GT3 Cup – now Ted Giovanis has his sights set on becoming a best-selling author.

On June 22, Giovanis’s book will be released, BEYOND FEAR: How I Fought The Feds For Six Years and Won – providing a front-row seat for how he – a self-employed healthcare finance and regulatory consultant – overcame extraordinarily long odds in his six-year battle with the federal government.

The court battle culminated in one of the largest court settlements in the history of Medicare for all hospitals across the country.

Giovanis is the first to admit the issue at the core of the litigation is complicated; however, the lessons are not unlike those learned in racing.

“More than anything, you learn a lot about yourself. You learn about the team; you learn the importance of your team and the team members,” he said.

“You learn that you’re going to have disagreements with your team and your team members, and you need to be able to accommodate those differences and still be able to work together. But it starts with a good team and individual members.”


When asked about the message BEYOND FEAR delivers and why it’s so engaging and readable, Giovanis said, “The book tells a story about taking on the government – it describes what they will do, if they don’t want to concede. They have unlimited resources, and there is no time penalty on them, and there are people within the government and bureaucratic processes that may have reasons not to let it move forward or settle.

“You want to read it because there are situations where you’ll encounter defeat, which we did at the district court in Washington, DC. Then you have to be prepared to make the call on whether you’re going to appeal to the circuit court.

“And you have to know that every time there is an appeal, it means more money (personal costs), more time. So you need to very clearly assess whether it is worth the time commitment, which could be two or three years. It was a lot of soul searching, trying to figure out if we were right.”

As if he needed more to do, once the dust had settled on the litigation, Giovanis founded and is President of the Jayne Koskinas Ted Giovanis Foundation for Health and Policy. Although the Foundation serves many purposes, (visit the website one of its main focuses is research on metastatic breast cancer and treatments. All profits from sales of BEYOND FEAR will go directly to the Foundation.

Giovanis will next be at the track for this week’s IMSA Tioga Downs Casino Resort 240 at Watkins Glen International Raceway in the Michelin Pilot Challenge. His involvement in the IMSA series is one of Ted’s main focuses and enjoyments.

IMSA President, John Doonan commented, “The IMSA family is made up of so many tremendous people who have brought so much worldly experience and success to our series as they enjoy competing with us. When members of the IMSA family excel on or off the race track, we do our best to join in celebrating their achievements.

“On behalf of all of us at IMSA, I want to congratulate Ted on his new book. Throughout his career, Ted has been a tremendous resource for so many people across a variety of industries and we are proud to call him one of IMSA’s own.”

The release of Giovans’s book BEYOND FEAR will be commemorated on Team TGM’s race cars for the upcoming event at Watkins Glen in an updated livery.
