Best Answers: Thousands of doctors dropped from insurance plans...?
Out of scrutiny & skepticism that came out of this roll out, they couldn't avoid having to acknowledge the failure which they tried to paint as a minor glitch. They tried to blame the insurance providers which were only following the guidelines & spent billions to follow the stipulations put forward by the ACA bill. Now they want to veto the Upton bill to make it seems that they taught of it first in the executive level, neither of which is going to fix the mess cause a delay is just a temporary patch. The Imperial administration had 3 or 4 years to put this to work but all they did is delay the implementation from 2012 to 2014. That alone implicates that they knew what was going to happen. In order to win re-election they had to delay it & hide the consequence from the sheep. The administration need to force the mid class into more costly insurance plans that covers services & treatment they don't need. To do that, world class doctors & Cadillac coverage which the mid class pay for out of their own pocket would now be illegal cause the plans don't cover services & treatment they do not need. They can look for & buy Cadillac plans in the ACA website but it's going to cost them triple to quadruple the price, & it will not guarantee to bring back their world class doctor & their old insurance provider. If the mid class don't like it, they must learn to cause the imperial administration knows best. Its like forcing somebody to buy supersize meals when all they want is the burger. It's like forcing somebody to buy a Ferrari when all they want is a KIA. The Admin's scheme seems to be to maximize AARPs, PHARMA, & other Cronies' membership, bottom line/profit margin with crony website contractor & government or the admin getting half if not more of the cut. When the Cook won't eat what the Cook cooked up says a lot about ACA, cause the cooks that cooked up the ACA Exempted themselves from it (Reid, Pelosi, Senate, Congress, WH, Local & Fed Gov.), their staff, & supporters, Bundlers (George Kaiser, Pat Stryker...), Big Business (Google, GE, Honeywell, W Buffet, Hollywood Studios & Producers...) Big Union supporters through exemptions, ACA subsidies, delays & waivers for their 1%-er supporters. To provide free coverage (Cadillac?) to Illegal immigrants, felons, & those dependent on government who are all ready getting free SSI, Section 8 Housing, medicaid, SNAP, WIC decades before retirement age, who aren't exactly contributing any taxes cause they simply get more than 100%, if not more than triple, in tax return from limited or little work to keep all the gravy handed out for their unconditional support. In order to slow down the economy have greater control of the public you have to discourage their ambition & self reliance. The Mid class would just have to sacrifice double if not quadruple to provide to those milking the system for more generous gravy that still wouldn't be enough for them until the mid class gives up & join the gravy train. Where People who dedicate & sacrifice their time, mind, & savings to acquire & apply abilities/skills far beyond that of those that did not are reduce to the same level. Doctors, Rocket Engineers, Engineers, Physicist, Electricians, Test pilots, Burger flipper, Teachers, Professors, Chefs, Architects, Janitors, Athletes, Window Washers, earning equal pay (minimum? +/- 5%-10%) wage living in public housing where health care, food supplies, & energy are rationed except for important people. No businesses, no Supermarkets, No Shopping Malls/Plaza, just Government Commissaries & Soup kitchens. 1/3 hard working out of habit or force end up making less for they put in twice or triple the hours, higher quality & faster completion. 1/3 are sloth incapable of quality work, half of whom are arrogant narcissist egotist (bigoted, thuggish, or delusional). 1/3 are moderate workers but milks the work, skate, & escape putting in long hours of work as side kicks, by licking, kissing, & greasing bottoms or dingle berries. If the Administration really want to hurt the top 30%, they would be the one hurt by this instead of the mid 50%. When the dollar is dropped by the world for international trading & collapses The bottom 15% has nothing to loose with the top 30% to 1% having everything to loose, why quantitative easing is in overdrive under this Admin. When it comes to socialized medicine & social welfare, the USSR, China, & Japan not spoil their citizens rotten. Their system provides assistance only to seniors of retirement age, the permanently disabled incapable of light duty (desk jobs, messenger, parking/toll attendant, etc.), & limited children. Their system doesn't allow, patronize, tolerate, & encourage fraudulent abuse by the physically able to riding & milking Gov. Assistance, even if their missing a finger or a limb. No life supporting aid or care for the physically abled, just life threatening emergency care cause they conserve their resources for the masses from catastrophic disaster (natural, terroristic, or military attack) to keep their independence of being in-charge of their own destiny rather constantly begging, giving other countries control of their destiny. http://www.nytimes.com/1996/09/10/world/... http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?... http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?...
Ultimately, you are the one who determines the affordability of your health insurance plan by deciding how much you will participate in sharing the cost of your health care with your insurance company. You decide what the right balance is between affordability and policy benefits. If you choose a plan that covers everything i.e. doctors office visits, prescription drugs, preventative health benefits, maternity coverage as well as low deductibles and low co-pays your monthly premiums will be significant. Adding optional dental benefits will increase the cost further. On the other hand because you are young, presumably healthy and probably use the health care system sparingly you could consider a high deductible health plan that covers only the major health catastrophe. The cost will be much lower. Ask your agent if, in conjunction with a Health Savings Account, this approach might be right for you. If you'd rather have more comprehensive approach consider a PPO or HMO plan. Consider higher co-pays for doctor's office visits and perhaps not cover prescription drugs. Either of these approaches will result in a lower monthly premium. You then can use the monthly premium savings to pay for the occasional doctor visit or prescription and still come out ahead. You need a trusted adviser to help you through the process of purchasing health insurance so that you understand what you are purchasing. That adviser can answer questions as to what is and is not covered by the policy, explain deductibles and co-pays and show you the hospitals and doctors that participate in the network. Check with the agent that writes your home or auto insurance he/she can provide you a health insurance proposal that takes into account your budget and health situation. Some are going to suggest you go to their web site so that they earn a few pennies on a "click through". Some may suggest going on line to get a quote but you probably already know that there is more to a good health insurance policy than price. P.S. Health insurance does not cover dental procedures unless the cause of the damage is accidental
You failed to realize those Baby Boomers who are enrolled in Medicare Advantage, are nothing more than Leaches, according to liberal thinking , so if the ACA severally cuts Medicare funding, its ok because those people were getting additional coverage , and why should we subsides them? Since the ACA needs that money to subsides the state exchanges instead
I can't tell if you're seeing 20 different doctors because you're having symptoms and are looking for a diagnosis, or if you're meeting these doctors in the course of your volunteer work. The situation in which you're seeing these physicians may make a big difference. There are people with psychosomatic illnesses (physical symptoms resulting from emotional causes) that go from doctor to doctor insisting that they have cardiac disease, lung disease, digestive disease, etc., when their symptoms may actually be caused by anxiety, stress, and depression. It's understandable that doctors can get impatient with people who they see as "not really sick" by their definition. These specialists are trained to look for physical causes, not mental ones. This isn't to say that psychosomatic illnesses aren't real. Anxiety and stress can cause physical damage, but these specialists look for organic causes and do not have time to counsel patients who are "just depressed." They specialize in their area, and that's it for them. I have met many specialists who were impatient jerks and have been told myself, "There's nothing wrong with you, you're wasting my time". And I have met specialists who undersood the mind-body connection and have said tactfully, "There's no organic cause and no disease--you may be stressed." When a specialist does tests and finds that there's nothing wrong with you in his/her specialty, that's all he/she can do for you, and there are hundreds of patients waiting to see him/her. So you get dismissed. If you're meeting these doctors in the course of your volunteer work, they may not want to treat homeless people because they may not get paid and because homeless people can have a wider variety of medical issues that can be hard to untangle. I've worked at a hospital, and I've worked in home health care and have worked with many doctors. Just like non-doctors, some are jerks and some aren't. Bless you for volunteering. It's easy to write a check for a charity, but your time is much more valuable than any amount of money.
Those doctors were sales people working for United Healthcare not treating patients for United Healthcare who does not employ doctors. Read the article.
As lalalareallynutz says, you can run Windows on the new Macs. You can boot into Windows via Bootcamp. That is free, but you can't jump back and forth between Windows and OS X in real time, you need to boot into one, then boot into the other. To use both at once, get Parallels. http://www.parallels.com/ http://www.apple.com/macosx/bootcamp/ By the way, you can also use Linux on a Mac, so they're the only computers that can run all three: Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows. Having said all that, OS X is the best OS out there, and Windows is the worst, so start by using just OS X and then use Windows for anything that you haven't found an OS X equivalent for yet. It probably won't be long before you quit using Windows altogether.
