Re: My sister called me today, she's a doctor.
I assume Europe has something like what Obamacare is going to look like.
Any EU folks willing to chime in?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3461132


Basically every country in Europe has some sort of universal healthcare, most of them for many many decades. Germany actually has had an universal healthcare system for over a century!
The way it works in Germany is, that everyone with an income pays a certain percentage of their wage to an insurance company. Children and people who can't afford paying the rates are insured for free.
Btw the rates are way lower than what you pay in the US. Also spending per capita is way lower in Europe (only half or even lower) than in the US, and the quality is on average much better. We have more doctors per capita than the US, life expectancy is higher, infant mortality rates are way lower, waiting times are shorter etc.
Also every single person I met, who was misfortunate enough, to get seriously ill in the US, and had to cope with the their ludicrous healthcare system was shocked how bad it is compared to European standards.
The only people profiting from the american system are the owners of the insurance and pharmaceutical companies.

Re: My sister called me today, she's a doctor.
It's B.S. that no one wanted to look at the bill or cared what was in it. People screamed, "Change!" and any kind will do. Now they have what they asked for.

I loved being called names for reading the bill and warning people about the super-bads contained within. Now the same people have their panties in a bunch because they just awoken and groggily realized their mistake - except it's not their mistake. They blame Obama. LOL. I must be a freaking rocket scientist to have had so much insight 3 years ago!

When will people learn to think critically and independently and make choices instead of running with the herd and trying to trample anyone not running to the same slaughter house?

Aw fucking boo hoo doctors actually have to practice medicine. They can no longer run patients through like cattle. They can't just glance at a chart and dash off an expensive prescription. They can no longer cheat medicare. They are finally held accountable. And that what a lot of those whiney ass dotors are really complaining about.
 Quoting: ruxpin


another do1984

I'm sorry that you are uneducated and label the medical field in this way. Before you open your mouth you should do some research. I am not a physician but work with physicians and hospital staff on the administrative side. I've been in this business for 20 years and the medical community is suffering from "Healthcare Reform". This simply means TPTB are imposing severe guidelines and lowering payments severely. Many doctors genuinely went in this field to help people. The healthcare reform has so much that is unseen by the patient community. EVERYTHING is required to be entered and stored electronically and the medical practices will have to report certain "quality measures" that pertain to YOUR DIAGNOSIS to the government payers. The doctor's will be Penalized if this is not done in the upcoming future. The insurance companies are already dropping their payments to extreme levels for Medicare and Medicaid members. So much so that they can't even cover the overhead. The welfare patients have it freakin made!! Doctor's do not profit at all from welfare cases. These are basically charity and most of their cost is written off as a loss with no profit. Medicaid patients cannot be billed anything further. Actually the average family doctor does not make alot of money. Think about the cost of leasing an office, staff salary and not to mention the cost they pay to obtain malpractice insurance. Billing and postage. On top of that the government now wants to control and access patient record keeping. The average cost to install an "APPROVED" EHR system is upwards of $18,000. Our little family practice doctor's are'nt going to be able to continue their practices that serv you! They will be forced into a larger hospital doctor group which leads to another disgrace as the hospital's are starting to bill office visits as outpatient hospital stays which relates a higher cost to you. An office visit copay will not apply in these cases. You will be billed for your portion of an outpatient visit. Do a google seach on EHR/EMR and PQRI. Look it up!It's only going to get worse.

Re: My sister called me today, she's a doctor.
My sister is a doctor (OB), she called me today and said she had been crying since last night. She is beside herself. Now that the final nail has been driven into the US medical industry it's hit her hard.
Main issue for doctors is that they are being mandated too and regulated like never before. Most of Obamacare focuses on regulations, not the patient. That's what most people don't get. It's all about reporting back to the government. They will be determining your treatments and watching every facet of your "care".
This is scary. Take some time and dissect the bill. It's a whopper, makes our tax code look like 1st grade reading.

Re: My sister called me today, she's a doctor.
I and my family are learning everything we can to take care of ourselves as much as possible. I almost threw away some crutches I found and then thought better of it. The cost of even these simple things are becoming outrageous. I tried to find insurance that only covers injury not illness and its almost impossible. I only go to the Dr. for injury. I turned down Cancer treatment 15 years ago and studied allot. I am now very healthy. The medical establishment had to go by what treatment for cancer was approved. When I asked about an alternative treatment, the Dr. said he couldn't discuss it. I asked what would you do and he then told me, I followed his unadvice and had a really great recovery.
People need to learn the old ways, except for the cleanliness part. Americas addiction to fast food is killing us, just slowly. I smoke but do everything I can to counteract the damage. I have been smoking for 41 years and my last ex ray(when I had insurance) the Dr. said "well you must not inhale" the smoke. Of course I inhale, or why bother.

Wasn't this thing supposed to FIX the health care problem in this country not make it worse.
I am a Human first and foremost.

The same type of "service" you now get from any governmental agency (municipal, state, or federal).

If you want a image of what to expect, think of the driver's license bureau...or the tax collector's office....now that you have them in mind, try and remember how "efficient" and "timely" they were in helping you...

Re: My sister called me today, she's a doctor.
It will be funny when all the libtards realize that by law they have to buy health insurance and if they don't pay up they are fined a minimum 695$ or 2.5% of their income whatever is higher. Then they are going to realize that their taxes are going way up in January and that medicare is getting robbed and many hospitals cannot afford and will not accept new medicare patients.

These are just a few things that the libtards voted for. We'll they got them and they have no one else to blame except themselves. Most of the libtards have no clue what they voted for, they are in for a very rude awakening.

I would wager a bet that at some time during the next four (4) years, there will be a lot of doctors that start making house calls again for the following reasons.

> No paperwork record of an appointment that the Feds can track.

> Pay the Doc with cash or barter (No credit card or check tracking for D.C., er, I mean Kremlin to see).

Added bonus: People would only see a doctor when they really need it. No hypochondriacs burdening the system. I know a lot of mothers who take their kids for every sniffle; since they are on Medicaid it's "free."

What a load of BS. I have been through two major illnesses with family members and I couldn't be happier with the care we received and our insurance company's treatment of things.

My sister has cancer and no insurance and she is also being well taken care of.

There is not a healthcare crisis there is a healthcare COST crisis and there are means to fix that without a bloated bureacracy taking over the whole damn thing.

By the way, my sister-in-law has lived in Germany for 12 years and she says the healthcare is terrible. She tells me all the time how bad it is for the locals, it's better for her in terms of getting in quicker, but they keep making mistakes with her kid's care. She has had to fly back to the US twice with them to get them taken care of.
