bunner: Three examples, so far, and all of them encouraging. Now imagine what it would be like to only have to walk into any medical faility with proof of citizenship and be covered without cutting an extra check every month to some private company.


That would be f*cking fantastic! I would love that. I support that fully.

And I know that with the political situation we have here in this country, we are so very far away from seeing that in our lifetimes, as much as I might want it.

The ACA is not perfect. It's not even great. But it's better than the shiat sandwich we had before.

me!  my wife had kidney failure and all the visits to the specialist and dialysis were covered    no issues with prescriptions...  the only problem we had with insurance companies was office workers typing her name wrong and getting rejected..  once the name was fixed..  paid..

God bless ye.  Anybody else?


Yup, two kids born, one as a teenager had two stays at Boston Childrens, lots of follow up. No problems with the insurance or scripts. She's now a nurse because of the positive interactions she had through all of it.  I have a kick ass employer covered plan that will probably become part of my taxable income down the road.

mrshowrules: meenkya: I know math does not bode well among Farkers, but your total monthly premium payment should include the deductable!
The affordable part of this plan is bull shiat!
Single 42 and I'm in the $500+/ month with a $4,000 deductable. Sorry but that's a tad steep for my financial situation at the moment.

/penalty is much cheaper.
//Healthy until I post this then I'll probably end up with a rare form of cancer.

Well it also depends how much stuff you have.  In effect, health care insurance is covering everything you own (house, car, etc.)


So if my house or car gets cancer, I don't need to worry?

Quick poll: Obamacare was signed into law four years ago yesterday. Are you better off now than you were then?

A bunch of Liberals following a Republican senator on facebook. Seems like a legit commentary from 100% of the country, not a bunch of moonbats who have nothing better to do.

If you had bothered to click the provided link, you would see that those are the top rated comments for his page.
But if a conspiracy is much easier for your simple mind to comprehend then that people actually like the law, go let your freak flag fly.

Oh, I see. That changes things, or it doesnt. Yeah, I am going to just use the same argument I used last time for this post.

/I am guessing you follow Republicans on Facebook.



You do know that some people are so stupid that they allow anyone to post on their feed without necessarily having to like or follow them, right?

/I don't follow, nor like, Cruz and was all over his feed yesterday.

bunner: tylerdurden217: Insurance companies are required to spend at least 80-85% of premium dollars on health costs and claims instead of administrative costs and profits.

This is news to me.  Do you have a cite for this?


Let me Google that for you.


That's not true anymore. The Obama administration quietly waived the 80% rule because the insurance companies weren't making enough profits.

If you ever thought for one second that the insurance industry's profits wasn't going to be the first and only concern of the ACA, you are an idiot. And that's exactly how this is playing out. Medicare's own actuaries have determined that family will pay an additional 621 billion than they would have otherwise due to this law. That's about an additional $7.5k for a family of four, which is about $10k away from the 2,500 in savings Obama promised. So....yeah.

Thanks, Obama!

Tell ya what, I'm saving $3600 a year. I'll send you $300 to get you up to that $2500 that he promised. Deal?

Without being snarky, can you spell out for me how you are saving $3,600 a year?

Sure....

Before the exchanges were opened I had two ways I could buy insurance. 1) On the individual market or 2) Through my employer. I have to cover myself, two kids and my wife. Now, my employer's insurance plan would be equivalent to a Gold plan on the exchanges today. On the individual market, insurance wasn't too crazy, but it wasn't great. If I went through my employer, he would cover me, but I had to pay 100% of the premiums for my wife and kids. That was going to be over 1K a month. So what I did was put my kids onto an individual plan, and put my wife onto my employer's plan. I did the latter for my wife because IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE to purchase insurance individual plans that covered maternity (except for the 'complications' coverage). I could not write a check large enough to any of the providers. Humana, No. BCBS, No. Aetna, Hell No. Cigna, LOL No. United Healthcare, Are you kidding? And, this whole debacle began before we had kids five years ago. So, with the knowledge that kids were coming, I had no choice but to put her onto my boss' plan. So, adding up the various costs, I was paying $475 a month for my wife on a gold-equivalent plan, and $380 a month for the two kids on a bronze-level plan after the 1st of the year (was $330 a month throughout 2013). Our new ACA plan which we've had since Jan 1 covers my wife and kids, on a silver-level plan with maternity coverage included (lord help us if another comes along), all for the grand total of $550/month. Yes, our network isn't great, ...


No doubt this is helpful for some and others not so much. One stop shopping certainly helps with keeping track of bills. What are the deductibles like?

jonnya: I successfully enrolled in a silver Blue Cross plan via the ACA sight last Thursday. The site was fine, but I've yet to receive any type  of confirmation or payment instructions. A littleoff-putting  but I'm figuring they're being bombarded right now. Nonetheless, the Blue Cross has made me a criminal! Don't they want my money?


Weird, I picked a plan Saturday (I know, last minute) and I got a bill from BCBS in email this morning.

Yep. Six high risk pregnancies (two successful) 3 d&c's, much testing including $$$$$$$ genetic testing, frequent sonograms, weekly appointments, referrals to high risk specialists, no problem.

Oh wait. They did at one point send me a letter asking me if I wanted a case manager because my case was complicated. I wrote back and said, no thank you. They said, okay then. Carry on.

BC/BS rocked that way, actually. Then Mr Namegoeshere left that job to start his own company and we could no longer afford them... : (

no way!!  330 million people without a dime?  screw that..   its impossible to fund

you know the government would hire a private company or companies to provide healthcare..  usually to the lowest bidder with small business set-asides..  it would be a major disaster we are just too large and corrupt  of a country to have one place dealing with it.

False!  The law allows the government to adjust this ratio as needed.  Since the insurance companies had higher expenses this year due to the set up of the insurance exchanges, the ratio was adjusted by 2% points to help cover the added cost.  Next year it will be back to 80/20.

Now back to your regularly scheduled derpfest.

Soup4Bonnie: WiredMann: I applaud you debate skills.

You should.  I am infinitely better than you at it.

Your post assumes that nobody has ever heard of let alone had to pay a high deductible before.  It fails to address that many people could not even get coverage before and are happy to pay the deductible just so they can get the treatment they weren't getting before.  It also doesn't mention the cap on out of pocket expenses, creates an imaginary scenario where the government is bailing people out and treats "Obamacare" as if it is thing that can be sold or used by hospitals and not a law that creates exchanges for private insurers to offer a product.

And this isn't an "epic fail".  Millions of people now have insurance that couldn't get it before.  There are a bunch of other new benefits, too, but again, I don't have time to explain to you what you should have been learning over the past four years.


You do know I was kidding, right? I think  you are as dumb as a brick.  From what I can tell you just seem to be here to promote ObamaCare despite the facts, but that's ok, it's problably your job.  The evidence is not quite in how big an epic fail ObamaCare is, but all of the signs are there you just have to open your eyes.   The facts are that this was all built on a lie.  We are already know that the "If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor" and "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan" were outright lies so anything else said by this administration is basically without credibility. The website is still a disaster, doctors and hospitals aren't taking the insurance in any large numbers, healthcare cost are going up and on and on.  But people who could never afford insurance before are going to gladly pay for a 5,000 deductible?  How?  Far too often they won't pay the deductible and the rest of us will be bearing the cost.  I could go on and on about how delusional you are but I am sure it wouldn't matter.

Don't try and be to specific in your refutation of my point.  Would you agree the biggest problem before was not being able to get insurance if you had a pre-existing condition, some people not being able to afford insurance and others just not getting insurance?

Why was the biggest problem with private insurance before Obamacare IYHO?

Please provide any citation to your claim that the minimum medical loss ratio has been waived. I know people who have gotten checks already (my former employer for one) to cover the difference. I call bull shait! Also I think the ratio actually is going to 85/15 in the near future for some or most of the insurance carriers rather than 80/20. If anything even more has to be paid as medical claims not less.

Here's an idea.

GE and all the other corporate whorehouses pay their taxes or GTFO and leave their assets here as attached by the IRS.

This influx of money pays debts, creates some alphabet soup programs that rebuild cities, infrastructure and help wire the whole joint with g/b fibre.  Also more jobs.

Medicine is nationalized, hospital CEOs and executive boards are kicked out with no parachutes, single source contracts are established, big pharma scales to something less than "vomit inductig avarice", everybody with a tax bill receipt is covered for whatever goes wrong and all the leviathan corps who are just milking the cow without feeding it get all "I never liked you anyway!". finish f*cking off to China and aunt Matilda gets her new hip without losing her house.

Duhh!!!!   I am talking about any plan that is bought through the health care exchanges.  There is a big problem with any of these "plans" as far as what doctors will take those plans.  Same things goes with hospitals.  But then again you probably chose to ignore that.  My doctor won't take any plan from Aetna, but will take Cigna.  He also won't take any plan associated with ObamaCare as well.  How good is the insurance if few doctors or hospitals will accept it?  Wake up and smell the failure/

Duhh!!!!   I am talking about any plan that is bought through the health care exchanges.  There is a big problem with any of these "plans" as far as what doctors will take those plans.  Same things goes with hospitals.  But then again you probably chose to ignore that.  My doctor won't take any plan from Aetna, but will take Cigna.  He also won't take any plan associated with ObamaCare as well.  How good is the insurance if few doctors or hospitals will accept it?  Wake up and smell the failure/

And doctors dropping out of insurance plans and going non network never happened before the ACA went into effect?

namegoeshere: I am and will continue to be in favor of socialized medicine. But I am well aware that I will probably be dead of extreme old age before we ever see that here (thanks obstructionist GOP)


Not one member of the congressional Republicans was required to pass anything. Using the tactics they used, the Dems could have passed damned near anything they wanted. They could have set up Medicaid for all (or whatever you want to call it), or a National Health Service, or whatever, and would have been able to pass it without the support of a single Republican.

Playing along...

Why won't he take anything but Cigna? Did he sign an exclusivity agreement with them, or does he work solely with Cigna?

Just call your doctor and ask them if they take ObamaCare.  Chances are they don't.

I can't tell if you are completely stupid, or utterly brilliant.

I think it is the latter actually. But that one tipped his hand.

It's like... Oh gods, I know I'm an optimist because I'm betting it's the latter...

That was well done. Hook, line, sinker, and even with the hand being tipped PEOPLE ARE STILL BITING.

Oh he good, watch how he walks it back:

He's walking it back, but isn't Cigna like Kaiser? When I had it, all my doctors were Kaiser employees working in Kaiser buildings.

Not a situation introduced by Obamacare.

Obamacare will go down as one of the most successful social welfare programs in this country's history, much like medicare and social security. You should get comfortable with this now.

Brilliant of course, and of course you are utterly stupid.

Breaking character like that is going to cost him a few points from the judges. Let's see if he regains his composure.
