READ THE CASE!!! The Nestor's decision was based solely on the fact that he had been deported.
From the Decision (which you obviously haven't bothered to read):
"THE INTEREST OF A COVERED EMPLOYEE UNDER THE ACT IS OF SUFFICIENT SUBSTANCE TO FALL WITHIN THE PROTECTION FROM ARBITRARY GOVERNMENTAL ACTION AFFORDED BY THE DUE PROCESS CLAUSE."
SUCH IS NOT THE CASE HERE. THE FACT OF A BENEFICIARY'S RESIDENCE
ABROAD - IN THE CASE OF A DEPORTEE, A PRESUMABLY PERMANENT RESIDENCE - CAN BE OF OBVIOUS RELEVANCE TO THE QUESTION OF ELIGIBILITY."
"APPELLEE, AN ALIEN, IMMIGRATED TO THIS COUNTRY FROM BULGARIA IN 1913, AND BECAME ELIGIBLE FOR OLD-AGE BENEFITS IN NOVEMBER 1955. IN JULY 1956 HE WAS DEPORTED PURSUANT TO SEC. 241(A)(6)(C)(I) OF THE
IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY ACT FOR HAVING BEEN A MEMBER OF THE
COMMUNIST PARTY FROM 1933 TO 1939. THIS BEING ONE OF THE BENEFIT
TERMINATION DEPORTATION GROUNDS SPECIFIED IN SEC. 202(N)."
Decision means that there are no individual property rights in Social Security, regardless of contribution history.

The Agriculture Department has paid millions of dollars to dead farmers over the last several years, according to an audit released Monday.
The Government Accountability Office estimated in a new report that agencies within the department may have paid more than $30 million to thousands of deceased recipients between 2008 and 2012. The findings come as Congress tries to pass a new farm bill, and could stir concerns among conservatives that the government's many subsidy programs are not being carefully managed.

Part of the cost is the processing of penny-ante claims for office visits, costs incurred by clerks in the doctor's office and clerks at the insurance company or government. Carry a larger deductible, eliminate small claims, and costs might be significantly reduced.
Not charging $100 for a toothbrush,$30 for one Tylenol and $40 for one gauze pad might also significantly reduce costs.

A one-night hospital stay shouldn't require insurance companies to pay thousands of dollars and the patient to pay the remainder also in the thousands of dollars.

Tests and procedures are off the charts. One expects to pay for services received from specialists in fields of expertise, but the medical profession has become more like crooked car mechanics charging you for parts and labor you didn't need rather than honest and caring people who have "a calling" to that profession.

Thx to O'Kennedy pilfering a SS number in the name and residence of his Kenyan father for him maybe.
WTH is with that stuff anyway--Hawaii had the number system implemented in the last part of the 50's..and aren't SS numbers SUPPOSED to originate in ones state of birth, and/or at least have similar geographical references?
Some flocked up stuff there-right on par with o'kennedy and his wide open swining door of libuhrulTic (NO) Immigration policy of the mid 60's.
Damn demoncrat mess maker.
Social Security numbers are geographical (and time sequenced), but based on wherever one happens to walk into a SSA office to apply for a card.

Why would anyone go to an emergency room for a headache or a sprained ankle?
Take two aspirin and call your doctor in the morning.
You might do that and I might do that but a lot of people don't.

There has to be a complete overhaul of the system. And if this sounds uncaring, so be it.

But after attacking the real culprit of rising health costs which is hospitals and clinics ripping off insurance companies and patients, there has to be two separate medical care facilities. Those who refuse to buy AFFORDABLE insurance and who can afford it must go to a medical facility that provides basic care and nothing more and pay the crux out of pocket before receiving the care.

Those who do have AFFORDABLE insurance can be seen at higher care medical facilities.

Those who can't afford even AFFORDABLE insurance will be provided care at the former facility for free.

This is the only way to spur people who abuse the system at other's expense to afford their own insurance if they want the best health care and still provide free health care for the truly needy.

You get what you pay for is a truism in every other profession and business except the medical profession. That has to change.

It's now a free-for-all for some and outrageous costs bordering on insanity for others.

Here's some math for YOU, smelly redheaded pigcnt:

1 skinny, diseased & doped up tranny

+

1 ghetto-dwelling, pants saggin, ebonics-speaking homeboy

=

1 dirty little mulatto baby born to a worthless single mom

\

the failure rate of such progeny in America

=

1 soon-to-be welfare recipient

That will be $42.50, for professional accounting services rendered. Cash only, no EBT card accepted.

My post is accurate___the lying piece of chit formerly known as Carol was telling tall tales per usual.
My son was delivered c-section in 1973, BlueCrossBlueShield paid most of the bill which was $1816. I paid for the upgrade to a private room which was just $150 ($50 per day).
Over 40% of all personal bankruptcies are due to medical bills such as childbirth.

So, how much do your think a skilled surgeon should earn?
