Correct, which means that Medicaid covers more than mothers with children. There are a host of others who also qualify for and receive Medicaid in our state.

And there would be far more if Scott would stop playing politics.

I read this morning that "the average" ACA subscriber in FLA is paying $68 per month in premiums.

I once made an inquiry for a friend who retired at 62, thinking he could qualify for Medicaid because he lives on social security and he was denied.
The income levels for qualifying are really low, plus he owned a home and two cars.
Another friend who had a terrible biking accident and couldn't walk for 6 months, or work, had been self employed, same thing. He tried to apply for disability, it's not an easy task as many claim on here. He gave up and survived by the help of friends till he got on his feet and went back to work.
The Medicaid expansion would allow those who fall between the gaps to buy insurance that would otherwise cost them $700 plus a month. Let's see if Rick Scott does something about it or gets voted out and Charlie Crist does.

Death penalty would have been more appropriate for this deviant.....
A Dallas man who knowingly transmitted HIV to an underage girl received 75 years in jail from a jury on Wednesday.
Matthew Reese pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child with a deadly weapon, aggravated sexual assault with serious bodily injury and sexual assault of a child on Monday.
Reese got 20 years and 55 years for two of the charges and could face and additional 20 years in prison if a third count is added to his sentence on Thursday.
He was 30 when he had a seven month relationship with the 15-year-old girl. Reese had been aware of his HIV status since 2006.
On Tuesday the victim took the stand and said he changed her life forever.
"I do blame him because he knew it. I feel like if he would have been upfront with me and told me I wouldn't have made that decision to actually be with him. I'm still young. I don't want to have to take medicine every day. If I forget I get paranoid," she said.
Mathew Reese is black! If he was white; it would be alright:

Call it “Affluenza”, call it whatever you want, but Samuel Curtis “S. C.” Johnson III, the 59-year-old billionaire heir to the S. C. Johnson & Sons (formerly Johnson’s Wax) fortune, is only going to do four measly months behind bars for his sexual assault of his underage stepdaughter.

Johnson confessed to repeatedly sexually assaulting his 12-year-old stepdaughter. Now his prison sentence of only four months from Racine County, Wisconsin Circuit Justice Eugene Gasiorkiewicz, has been justified citing the Johnson family’s importance in the community.

How much is the government paying?

How to quality for a government health insurance subsidy
July 23, 2013|By Kimberly Lankford
As health care reform kicks into high gear, many Americans are asking: Will I qualify for a government subsidy to buy health insurance under the new health care law, and when do the changes kick in?

Eligibility depends on your income, family size and the cost of coverage in your area. The biggest changes from the health care law take effect on Jan. 1, 2014, when insurers will no longer be able to reject people for coverage or charge higher rates because of their health.

The law also sets limits on how much insurers may charge older buyers (for example, premiums for a 64-year-old can be no more than three times as much as they are for a 21-year-old). The law requires individuals to have health insurance or pay a penalty, and it gives people the opportunity to buy coverage on new state health insurance exchanges.

Many middle- to low-income people who buy coverage through the exchanges will also get government tax credits to help pay for their health insurance.

You can qualify for this subsidy if your income is less than 400 percent of the federal poverty level, which is about $46,000 for an individual and $94,000 for a family of four in 2013. The subsidy represents the difference between the amount you're expected to contribute based on your income and the cost of the benchmark plan for someone your age in your state.

If your adjusted gross income is $70,650 for a family of four, for example, you're expected to pay 9.5 percent of your income for the benchmark plan's premiums. If your family's premiums for the benchmark plan are $12,500, you'd be expected to pay $6,711 of the premium and would get a tax credit worth about $5,790, according to Families USA.

You could buy a plan that costs more or less than the benchmark plan, but your subsidy would remain the same. You can run your numbers through the Kaiser Family Foundation's health insurance subsidy calculator. You'll also be able to get details about your subsidy through your state's health insurance exchange as the sites are launched in the next few months (see HealthCare.gov for more information, including links to state exchanges.)

You can only get the subsidy if you buy your coverage through the exchange, and you can't get a subsidy if you have an offer of insurance from your employer that meets certain standards. Open enrollment for the exchanges begins on Oct. 1, 2013, for coverage beginning in 2014. The subsidy is sent directly to your insurance company and applied to your premiums when you buy the coverage through the exchange.

A recent study by Avalere Health estimates that 40 percent of individuals who currently have nongroup health insurance (and 46 percent of people who are currently uninsured) will qualify for the subsidies, and about two-thirds of young adults (age 30 or under) who are currently uninsured or have nongroup health insurance will be eligible for the subsidies.

Many early retirees are likely to qualify, too, especially if their income drops after they stop working (subsidies are only available if you are under age 65). For more information about coverage choices for early retirees under the new health care law, see New Health Insurance Options for Early Retirees.

Asked Wednesday if he had any response to criticism by Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz that no president had done worse in office than Barack Obama, White House press secretary Jay Carney delivered the perfect reply.
"Which president was he talking about?" he deadpanned at his final White House briefing.
"It's always good to hear from former Vice President Dick Cheney," he added

Even Carney doesn't want to acknowledge O'bama. Who can blame him?

Government, organization it doesn't matter.
Your idea that we can say anything is the same as something else because it might change in the future is a stupid argument.
Stupid.
I'm thinking today., You are making up sh*t about tomorrow.
Canada has had single payer since 1984. Is it the same as the VA?
Stupid argument? It could be. Can you guarantee that it won't once the national government is charged inclusively with public health? No one can predict the future. You said congress can do what it wants.

We are more diverse and complex than Canada. Canada's population is about the same as California. If California had the ability to eliminate Medicare and Medicaid and initiate a single payer system for everyone for itself, I wouldn't have a problem with that.

The European Union has a parliament in Brussels, yet all the nations in the union have their own healthcare plans.
