The Obamacare Steamroller
I have posted about the medical care my mother receives being cut, previously. Now it has been cut entirely. One year ago, my mother had a pacemaker put in. A week later, she was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, and sent home on oxygen.
She had a Physical Therapist coming in twice a week. The PT was cut entirely in August. She had a nurse come 2 times a week. The nurse was cut to 1 time a week as of August. She had a nurses aid coming 3 times a week. The nurses aid was cut to 2 hours twice a week, as of August.
Now, as of the 1st of January, her nurses aid has been cut totally. She has been retained, but as an out of pocket expense at $15 an hour. The nurse has been cut to once a month, and told my mother it might be cut to once every 2 months.
The nurse and nurses aid both told my mother that the cuts were the result of obamacare. They both told my mother that their agency has cut half of their staff. Medicare no longer pays for these services, except in very limited cases and time thresholds.
According to the nurse and nurses aid, this is only the beginning of the cuts to care for the senior citizens.

Re: The Obamacare Steamroller
These cuts in care do not affect just the elderly, it affects everyone. Many people, besides my mother, are having a hard time with their prescriptions. Certain medications seem to be not available anymore, or there are strings attached, like limited refills, smaller dosages, and mandatory blood tests every 2-3 months.

Re: The Obamacare Steamroller
Worse comes to worse, she will end up in a nursing home. The taxpayers will end up paying her bill, as the only assett she has is a simple ranch style house.
It is so much cheaper, and better for her, to continue to live in her own home. Obamacare has almost totally taken that away.

Sorry, Tiger. The crooked bastards. I just heard they closed the "pre-existing condition" enrollment. If you didn't get in, you're sol.

Going to hell in a handbasket.

All best to your family. Keep showering your family with love. Stay strong.

Obama also said that a family's healthcare premium would drop by $2500 a year in his FIRST TERM. They didn't, they went up $2400. This guy is such a liar, and the media gives him passes on it.

We are doing the best we can. Our goal is to let my mother live in her own home until she dies. That is all we want, and is all that she wants.

my elderly mothers home nursing was literally cut in half, my medications are more expensive..

At my small business our payroll tax skyrocketed, and every employees cost of health insurance shot up. Was going to hire, but can't afford any more on the pay roll.
