You may want to add NaviHealth to your portfolio. You got the funds. Behind every cloud………..
>On average, Medicare’s fee-for-service model pays for about 2,000 days in a post-acute care facility for every 1,000 beneficiaries. By comparison, Kaiser Permanente, a provider of low-cost quality care, averages 600 days per 1,000 clients while achieving better outcomes. It’s possible, in other words, that Medicare is paying for 70 million unnecessary days for all of its approximately 50 million enrollees, wasting tens of billions each year.“Even if we’re pretty lousy at this,” Scully said,“even if we only get that down to 1,500 or 1,200 [days per 1,000 clients], we’re going to save them a lot of money and make a lot for ourselves.”<
Make hay when the sun don't shine, they say, or something like that. Conniving Mo Fo's.
You can't make hay in the dark and just so we're on the same page, the Affordable Care Act would not be my first choice for improving health care in this country. That said, something has to be done so that the other 99% of the population has access to the care only 1% of the population can currently afford.

I have a basic problem with a system where insurance companies make more on the care I receive from a doctor the the doctor who's providing that care.

Well, that 1% of payers are being told to go somewhere else. That amounts to a complete Government takeover of the health industry. Is there anything left they haven't got their sticky fingers into? They going to nationalize the insurance companies? Let's do the oil companies. How about banks? Wait, they already did that. How about the utility companies? No wait. That's the EPA. Starting to look like Venezuela. All they need is more people to acquiesce for the good of the other supposedly 99% of takers in this country. Legal or not. Seems like your 1% comes right out of the Administration's playbook. Worker with health plans are not affected. Where's YOUR 99% figure come from? As for the doctors, why are they upset with this latest news that they will could lose millions of their patients? How do you think we found out about it before to hit the papers? They don't like it.

First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they "volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences."

Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.****First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs. Arizona).

And don't forget if you like your doctor and your health plan you can keep it, what a pathological liar.

So, again I ask, How is Obama’s "hope and change" working out for you?

What it amounts to is millions of people insured in plans that won't meet the minimum requirements of the Affordable Care Act. Look, I understand you disagree with me but we don't need to argue about this, like I said...next August I'll be old enough to go on the government teat and I'll suffer the same injustices as the rest of you old men. But to call me clueless you first need to go fcuk yourself cuz the days of $440/mo insurance premiums disappeared back when gas was under a dollar.

You're wrong, poop-for-brains, so wrong. Minimum requirements? One poor man had to give up his $440/mo insurance and pay 400% more to give his 59-year-old wife maternity coverage! Read the papers. I think you're lying about your age. YAK!

Y'know, cigarettes cost $.25 a pack when I started smoking so figure out my age from there. You can also deduce from that equation that I have my own issues with which to deal so tell your neighbor I said mazal tov about the baby but cope with it...

Try not to talk to me until after August, m'kay? I'll be a full time "taker" by then but up until that time I'll still be paying in to the system and will therefore not need to take any of your nonsense. The first step in curing a problem is admitting it exists. Our healthcare system was broken long before Obamacare.

It's quite obvious that you are out of touch with reality for Seniors on Medicare. If I had to pay $440 a month per person, I'd already be fcuking myself. Try $129 X 2 for basic. Then 0 per month premiums for Part B. I opted for for higher co-pays in the event I needed those services. The extra 10-15$$ per doctor visits,(6 per year x 2) is squat compared to $440/month. So why don't YOU go fcuk yuorself until you become of age to know what you're talking about, Sonny. So there.

Final answer? It doesn't really matter since I'm too busy fcuking myself and paying $1,500/mo for two to pay any attention. You old farts have got it going on for tiny money...now I know why the folks in The Villages don't care about STDs.

This whole discussion began with my displeasure with Insurance companies sending out cancellation letters to retirees saying they will no longer service their areas or dropping their Doctors from their individual programs forcing them to go elsewhere. At my F.I. L's age (93) he's lucky to find the car keys. Yup, he's still driving. Doesn't need GPS to find the OTB. LOL But tell him he can't see his Doctors and has to find another Healthcare Company and he goes batshit. Me? I'm good.

The reason for no fear of STD's is because he has to pour in it with a spoon just to have it fall out. All they really care about is that their golf carts start up to go to the activity center or the store for those Depends.

I'm glad you said it. Nobody was screaming about losing coverage until this BS with OUR individual choices of Health Care. I thought exactly the same thing when TRD made that idiotic statement. Let's face it. He's shoveling sh!t against the tide of dissatisfaction in this argument, but, like the people who elected the Dictator, they see nothing but good. In this type of argument, they keep throwing stuff against the wall until something sticks. Uzi, you are a bad boy. The Commander is going to revoke your Pilot Glo Ring privileges.
