That happened to my wife. She had to scan and send in a bunch of info on herself and I, which was then lost, so she did it all again. Last week she was finally accepted, and we discovered that staying with what we've got through her employer was what we should stick with.

If I get really sick, I'm probably just going to treat myself with leeches. It's better than visiting the doctor who will order a series of tests, which will be inconclusive and requiring more tests, all of which are expensive.

/But I'll die before admitting that America's healthcare system isn't the best in the world.

No kidding. Here's a gem:

1. You can keep your old insurance at the usual rate.
2. You can keep your same doctor
3. Your premiums will not go up, as more people join the companies, they will have a greater pool of cash for insurance payouts, hence the lower premiums.

Or he's using his work coverage costs as his basis. My work coverage costs way more than the state marketplace (in my case, Covered California), for worse coverage. Catch is, I don't get the money if I decline coverage and it's also tax free if I go through work.

Other Presidents didn't have press agents who stated that they were born in Kenya.

I agree pretty much with the position Breitbart took on this, that BO was born in Hawaii.

The same thing happened to me. It turns out that the only way Experian can verify a person is by looking at their credit history in the last two years. I have not made any new, large purchases in the last two years on credit, so I did not exist for them. I over-nighted my information to an address in Kentucky - I wanted verification it arrived. Three days later, I was in the system.

But it's a really dumb way to verify a person. I pay taxes, and it seems like that would have been a lot more accurate.

I work for a large company and my premiums are about $30 a paycheck. You're doing it wrong.

Do you get paid weekly?

Biweekly.


Seriously, you'd think these people were shocked that shiatting out babies was expensive, or have never had a real job.

I got upset with my employer when it got bumped up by 50%... to 100/mo.

What are you two paying?  I'm genuinely curious.

What's wrong you ran out of excuses for the failing of the administrations crowning achievement. Or is it that you can not blame someone else for the failings.

Questions should have a question mark.

I don't think anyone is happy with the website roll out. Yes, it stinks.

Enrollment came late for Massachusetts when they implemented their Romney's version.  I would like to see how this plays out.

What absolutely astounds me is that Republicans (I'm guessing you are one, apologies if I'm wrong), are against a market based solution--proposed by Republicans in the past! It's a hand out to insurance companies!

And, they still don't have an alternative other than repeal, repeal, repeal.

No, it's not necessarily a crowning achievement, but a good step forward. Hopefully, it will be judged as the stepping stone to single payer.

1) What's failing about it?

1. technical glitches other wise know as a POS website.
2. less than half of the anticipated enrollees signed up. Both federal and state.
3. Complicated website forced the Admin to push back deadlines.
3. Enrollees will have extra time to pay instead of by the 1st they have until the tenth now forcing insurers to cover without payment.
4. Website is still full of glitches and the Admin is going to pay another 50 million to fix it.
5. Half billion dollar web site nobody thought to test to see if it worked.
6. Even the POTUS could not symbolically sign up.
7. Cost will be higher for most and people look at the bottom line, not the package. Subsidizes will be given as tax credits, and for most, end of year credits do not pay bills now.
8. Most top hospitals will not accept ACA sponsored plans.
9. If one could not afford insurance then, how can they afford it now.
10. The ACA broke a system for a few million uninsured.
11. Businesses where given extensions on mandates. I wonder why?

I know this is all Fox News fault and the Republicans also and yea just because I do not agree with the ACA means I am a racists. Your turn, please tell me how it is.

Also these people are stupid, His info is blocked on most databases, because of who he is and not due to his birth, which I still question.

The fact that he's alive pretty much guarantees he was born. Natural birth or c-section is another story. Next question

You have to wonder, why haven't these people questioned the birthplace/lizard-man status of any other president?

Have you ever seen him with your own eyes *not* being a Lizard? Checkmate, QED ex post facto, Dim-o-crats!

No this will not go away. People do not like being forced to purchase a product or service. What is to stop future administrations from enacting laws to purchase other goods or services, say like from a failing GM. Those who can not afford insurance will always be reminded of it every month.

What is it 2015, when the business mandates come online and corporations and business start trying to skate the system, millions more will be reminded of the failed ACA.

Ahh, the f you, I got mine attitude. The circle of life is now complete.

The most radical revolutionary will become a conservative the day after the revolution


No, just tired of the same old bullshiat.  I'm not going to defend the ACA as perfect, but I am confident that it will be better  for everyone once health insurance is more widely held.

This is the free market solution that makes the numbers add up.  The alternative to the ACA is 1) a broken system that provided a worse life expectancy for twice the cost per capita than most Western industrialized nations; 2) straight-up socialized medicine; 3) the end of mandatory treatment for emergency cases at the ER.

Among those 4 options I think the ACA is the best choice we have, for now.

For people who can afford insurance but didn't make it a priority, I'm glad that they are being forced to make decisions that don't socialize the risk in case of a car accident or other traumatic event.
For people who cannot afford health insurance, I hope you live in a state that accepted the Federal government expansion of Medicaid.  Otherwise, vote your pocketbook next time and make that happen.
For people who think they don't need insurance because they live in some heroic Libertarian fantasy, they can go screw.

Biweekly.


Yep, I'm in the same boat.  My premiums went up from $14 per pay period to $26 per pay period (biweekly) this year.

Small, privately held, self-insured.  They averaged 2-3 big payout (cancer-type) over the previous 3 years, last year there were 5.  They re-insure for anything that tops a quarter mil (I think) but that's still a big hole they had to make up.  They also readjusted the balance between the amount paid by families and the amount paid by single-payers (my wife has her own insurance).

Probably the most accurate treatment of the ACA I've seen on Fark. And it explains why none of the Republicans have proposed an alternative to the ACA--because there is no option that doesn't collide with these.

Wait wait wait ... are you implying that there are other factors beyond what people used to pay for the policies that are now considered substandard, the cost of improving their coverage to new standards, what the exchanges quote as the new cost, and the amount of out of pocket expenses people will actually end up paying?

No logical counter points, I am a racist because he is half black, attempts to make me look stupid because I said "birth" instead of "the location of his birth" and statements as to why no one is currently questioning the birth of past presidents. The color of his skin has nothing to do with my disagreement in providing goods and or services to those people who have not earned them at a cost to those that have. It doesn't matter if a person was just born into a rich family and didn't earn their wealth, because at some point in that family someone earned it. The location of his birth I question, because of all the conflicting stories and his youth spent in another country. I find the nature of his birth interesting and not a tool to undermine his presidency.

Your statement didn't really warrant a logical counter point.  Mostly because people still questioning his birthplace have already rejected all evidence presented to them, and everyone else is tired of reiterating things that you are clearly going to ignore since you've made it this far as a birther.

That said, against my better judgement I will say this:  If the ACA works as intended, I.E. giving people access to insurance and doctors they did not previously have access too, and a broader customer base for insurance companies, than the unit price of healthcare should go down, which should impact the cost of even your healthcare.  If you pay for your healthcare than this will still mean less out of pocket for you, but if your healthcare is provided by someone else (like an employer), than they are spending less on your healthcare and can use that money for other things, like better benefits packages, higher pay, better quality equipment, bonus packages, etc.  If they're doing none of that, at least they're more stable as a business because their costs went down so your employment is safer.

Even if *none* of that is true, and the ACA has no impact on you at all, than it isn't hurting you either, and it is providing benefits for millions of people.  If you still oppose it even after that, one has to question why.  It's not fair that people assume racism, but not surprising considering that there are some pretty strong racial undertones among the tea party and the birthers that your views align with.
 
2013-12-27 12:46:03 PM  
Supporting Obama has nothing to do with it. All reasonable people have been made aware that the evidence overwhelmingly supports that he was born when and where he said he was. Continuing to question it at this point makes you an unreasonable person by definition. There's no more point in providing "logical counter points" to your "argument" (which was what exactly?) than there is to trying to reason with people who maintain that the moon landing was faked. Take up a ridiculous argument, get ridiculed.

Do you not understand how ACA works? We are not just adding people to insurance company policy's we are also subsidizing their payment of those policies. You also have to consider all the added costs to care providers that will be passed on to those seeking care. People can live in the land of rainbow dreams and unicorn farts thinking the ACA will lower costs but there is only the reality that it will shift costs. Maybe I will see my insurance premiums go down, but my cost of service will go up and or my taxes. When you break it down and strip away all the fluff it makes sense you can not take one apple and then give 4 people a whole apple you must take four apples.

And Repo Man enough with the birth issue you are not understanding that I am saying I find the subject interesting and that I am not stating an opinion as to one way or the other.

Profedius: you can not take one apple and then give 4 people a whole apple you must take four apples.


That's a bad analogy.  I expect you know it too.  A better analogy would be to suggest that if I take your medical procedure and reduce the cost of it by 75% because they no longer have to mark up the cost of the procedure to make up for a bunch of people coming to the emergency room and not paying, than I can afford to have 4 people get the procedure for the same price.

Yes, I understand that some people will be subsidized when purchasing their insurance.  At the very least it might mean if you should wind up in an emergency room you won't be stuck for three hours in triage behind a bunch of people that could have been helped with antibiotics and a little rest three weeks ago.

But in the end you're right, screw that kid with emphysema, his mom should work harder, you need a new x-box after all.

Repo Man: The subject is interesting in the way it gives away members of the voting public who either have no faculties for critical thinking, or who suspend them on this particular subject for some reason. But you're "Just asking questions" right?


Take it like UFO shows. I enjoy watching them even though I know it is not Aliens. I find his location of birth in much the same way. My questions are more towards the evidence used to prove he was born here in much the same way I question the evidence to prove Aliens are not flying UFOs.

subsetzero: I'd like to remind you Farkers that the bureaucrat that verified POTUS' birth certificate recently DIED IN A PLANE CRASH.  Several people were in the plane but only the bureaucrat died.

Coincidence ?


Are you implying that Birthers MURDERED him!?
