Obamacare Kicks In. Stoppage Of Care, Higher Premiums.
My mother,who has congestive heart failure, and is on oxygen, as of January 1st no longer has a nurse come and check on her once a week, due to the Medicare cuts. As of August 1st of 2012, when the first round of cuts came, her once a week Physical Therapist was totally cut, her nurse was cut to 1 day a week from 2 days, and her CNA was cut from 2 hours twice a week, to 1 hour once a week. She was told that the CNA might be totally cut too. She still lives in her own home, by herself, sparing the taxpayers the cost of nursing home care. IF she would go into a nursing home, the money available from the liquidation of the few assetts would be gone in a few months, and then Medicaid would pick up the tab.
My older brother was notified by mail on saturday, that the medical insurance premium for his school age son has gone up from $100 a month to $750 a month. That's right, a 650% INCREASE !!! My brother, who was forced to retire early a year and a half ago, was covering my nephew on his work policy. He cancelled the medical insurance, as the increased premium eats up nearly his whole pension check. He called for an explanation, and was told EVERYONE got an increase, whether a retired employee or one that is still employed.
Obamacare has done nothing to help the health care crisis in our country. Instead, it has made health care totally unaffordable, and the rationing of care has begun.

I don't know how anyone can be happy about this montrosity. Obamacare took a healthcare cost crisis and added an more cost to it with a bloated bureacracy to oversee it.

Starting next year, if you do not have medical coverage, you have to pay a penalty.
I have to add that my oldest daughter, who has multiple disabilities, had her medicaid coverage cut off as of January 1st. She was born with mild spina bifida, bilateral hip dysplasia, and is LD, EH, and ADHD. The letter we got in said that she was now healthy. LOL, what a crock. There is no appeal.

Does anyone know how much people are going to be charged that do not have insurance? When this "tax" kicks in.

I have been wondering if all the bums on public assistance are going to have to pay also, or are they going to get a free pass on that too?

Most will get a free pass, IMO. It looks like the only one in my immediate family that will not be paying a penalty, will be me. My oldest now has no insurance, my husband has no insurance, and my youngest daughters insurance expires in February 2014.

Re: Obamacare Kicks In. Stoppage Of Care, Higher Premiums.
Boston Children's Hospital has had to seriously cut back due to Obama care. The nurses told us they have to send children that have just had major, serious surgeries home 3-4 days earlier than they used to due to the new regulations. Also, many surgeries must be done in the home town hospital instead of finding the best MD as you would at BCH. Last year, my son had to have double hip surgery or he would have been in a wheel chair unable to walk in a few years. It was a major 10 hour surgery for each hip. There is not one doctor in our state or region for that matter that could have done the surgery that the #1 children's hip surgeon even dared to do. Glad we got it done while we could but sad for those children in the future.

Obamacare has rules/regulations about re-admitting patients also. If a patient gets re-admitted within a certain number of days after discharge, even if it is for an entirely unrelated event from the previous hospitalization, the hoapital will get penalized.
My middle daughter had years of treatments and surgeries at Shriners Childrens Hospital in Oak Park, Illinois. I wonder how obamacare affects this facility?

She owns her home she lives in. She is very independant. We DO take care of her, but not 24/7. She will not move in with anyone, and does not want anyone staying with her. She will be 90 this coming sunday.
This thread is not about where she resides, it is about what obamacare has done to people who have medical needs, and are paying for medical insurance, and not getting their needed care any longer. This thread is also about how people are getting screwed because of obamacare, with higher premiums, and starting next year, paying penalties because they do not have insurance.

I know. But it is also about how are we going to deal with what is our future.

There is no room for stubborn anymore. Things are going to change and we have to make the best of it. Our paychecks are less now because of more taxes. I can moan about it or can figure out what to do. And yes I did moan and now I have to fix the budget. Your mom is going to have to get real about what life she has left.

I have also heard that whatever a person leaves behind at death the government can claim half of it. I think it is inheritance tax. If I were her I would sell the house now and use that to live on while living with my kids. Or giving what I want to my kids before the government takes it. Make sure she has a good will so the house doesn't get hung up somewhere where no one can sell it. There are a few in my neighborhood this has happened to.

She will not budge. She refuses to live with anyone.

The elderly can be very stubborn but soon they won't be able to afford to be that way.

OP

I posted this a few months ago.

Thread: My sister called me today, she's a doctor.

My sister is an OB, she's been stressed about how this will affect patients.

Re: Obamacare Kicks In. Stoppage Of Care, Higher Premiums.
My mother,who has congestive heart failure, and is on oxygen, as of January 1st no longer has a nurse come and check on her once a week, due to the Medicare cuts. As of August 1st of 2012, when the first round of cuts came, her once a week Physical Therapist was totally cut, her nurse was cut to 1 day a week from 2 days, and her CNA was cut from 2 hours twice a week, to 1 hour once a week. She was told that the CNA might be totally cut too. She still lives in her own home, by herself, sparing the taxpayers the cost of nursing home care. IF she would go into a nursing home, the money available from the liquidation of the few assetts would be gone in a few months, and then Medicaid would pick up the tab.
My older brother was notified by mail on saturday, that the medical insurance premium for his school age son has gone up from $100 a month to $750 a month. That's right, a 650% INCREASE !!! My brother, who was forced to retire early a year and a half ago, was covering my nephew on his work policy. He cancelled the medical insurance, as the increased premium eats up nearly his whole pension check. He called for an explanation, and was told EVERYONE got an increase, whether a retired employee or one that is still employed.
Obamacare has done nothing to help the health care crisis in our country. Instead, it has made health care totally unaffordable, and the rationing of care has begun.

It is going to be called being your own doctor. Learn to take care of your health now because no one else is going to do that for you anymore.
