ObamaCare Implosion: Pay Much More, Get Much Less

Published by at 9:37 am under Obamacare

Alternate Title: There Always Was Going To Be Death Panels

Watching liberal, activist government crash and burn on Obamacare is both laughable and sad. Laughable because of all the snake oil people fell for because they want hand outs. Sad, because the lesson to be learned here will be painful, and may even be deadly.

Seriously did you really believe that to cover the chronically uninsured, the rest of us could:

  • Keep our health insurance premium?
  • Keep our health insurance deductible?
  • Keep our health insurance plan?
  • Keep our doctor?
  • Preexisting conditions had to be covered?
  • ObamaCare was on track for a successful launch?
  • is a secure system and won’t expose our personal information?

Really? Who but the most delusional still buy this?

To cover the cost of 15 million hard to insure people, everyone was going to get hit. Even seniors.

Obamacare has a new message to seniors: Take two aspirins and find yourself a new doctor in the morning.

And why is this deadly? Check out what happened to Edie Sundbury, who is in the fight of her life against cancer:

… all my energies are directed to enjoying life and staying alive, and I have no time for politics. For almost seven years I have fought and survived stage-4 gallbladder cancer, with a five-year survival rate of less than 2% after diagnosis. I am a determined fighter and extremely lucky. But this luck may have just run out: My affordable, lifesaving medical insurance policy has been canceled effective Dec. 31.

Since March 2007 United Healthcare has paid $1.2 million to help keep me alive, and it has never once questioned any treatment or procedure recommended by my medical team.

You would think it would be simple to find a health-exchange plan that allows me, living in San Diego, to continue to see my primary oncologist at Stanford University and my primary care doctors at the University of California, San Diego. Not so. UCSD has agreed to accept only one Covered California plan—a very restrictive Anthem EPO Plan. EPO stands for exclusive provider organization, which means the plan has a small network of doctors and facilities and no out-of-network coverage (as in a preferred-provider organization plan) except for emergencies. Stanford accepts an Anthem PPO plan but it is not available for purchase in San Diego (only Anthem HMO and EPO plans are available in San Diego).

Here is someone who had an affordable plan that was doing everything possible to save her life. Her preexisting condition was not an issue.

But now, thanks to cost cutting measures, she is being DENIED access to the very doctors she’s had by Obamacare. Nothing in that list above is true.

We are all paying a lot more than we were and getting a lot less in return.

So given all the other BS the Obama administration lied about, anyone still want to bet there are no death panels?
