Re: Actuaries' study predicts Obamacare to increase claims costs by 32 percent
that is one major reason why taxes are high up here. Healthcare for the masses is a bith. We pay through taxes. You will through your ins premiums. So everyone can have access to some kind of care. Welcome to socialism.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 36835398


oh like with capitalism you don't have to pay for heath care because the rich can write the cost off their taxes.

Being a doc myself, the answer is yes you are a fast food customer, due to the high cost of overhead and diminishing insurance reimbursements since the late 90's we have to see 3-4 times as many patients to break even (my particular field is even worse because we dont have alot of billable codes to use per daily patient visit so we are hurt even harder), so you get seen quickly if we catch something major you are luckily passed to the next provider in a round robin fashion in the hopes they will nail it down. Individual private practices are at huge risk so you are milled through like cattle to ensure we dont lose our entire world through bankruptcy. Sorry but that is what insurance carriers have done to this profession that used to be based on trade and a handshake in the 1800's. I hate it so very very very much, but my student loans, practice loans, and necessity to provide employment to my staff take precedent if it didnt you wouldnt even have offices to visit. Word to the wise we are fucked way beyond repair.

If I had to do it over, I would have just returned to being a janitor (my favorite job I ever did in life). Or opened a dance studio to teach people how to get down and be funky for a living. Worst mistake of my life, but occasionally I do see some life changing results and feel good, ohhh but then comes the billing of the patient for that little miracle, then I go back to being sad again.

However back to the original poster who was quoted, leaving a scathing review of a doctor who cant resolve your minor health issue does not hurt them one iota. Your health is your responsibility, not theirs, they are placing band aids on the guaranteed fact you will detoriate and die. They toe a daily line between good care and malpractice with every decision. I hear plenty of complaints from patients about horrible decisions made on their behalf, I have made a few of my own. You cannot hit home runs daily, alot of foul tips in this game. Some do well others get buy, and plenty are quacks. Plus in this society their a million sick folks just like you who will take your place, negative comments used to bother us, then we stopped giving a shit and realized this is survival society time not do an amazing job 100 percent of the time. The population of docs are overworked, manipulated for disability and handicap parking benefits by patients, scammed for personal injury and workers comp claims by faking patients, manipulated for pain killers to suit patients addictions. We are lucky if we get appreciative patients who dont treat us like a server at Denny's. So it is a snake eating its own tail. We do what we have to do to survive, maintain an income, not risk or licences, and not burn out within 5 years of practice.

Communicate with your provider let them know in a nice genuine tone your issues, we tend to shut down when we get the first whiff of discontent. We didnt go to school for 8 years with 200 grand in professional debt to put sprinkles on your ice cream for you.

If a corporation has a $100 increase in expenses and has a 40% tax rate, that gives them a $40 deduction.

In other words they still lost $60 in profits due to the $100 extra they paid for insurance coverage!

the truth is in the early seventies and prior i could go to my family doctor and he could treat so many different things i didn't need a specialist at every turn. it was a cheap visit. oh and medicines w/o a prescription worked fine. if he did write a prescription it was cheap. i had insurance if i needed hospitalization and such and it was pretty cheap. we can thank Nixon for fucking up a system that worked. oh and employers would put you on health care day of hire..

These thunder cunts will not make me get into this system of death. They can attempt to tax me to death, literally, but I will not be made ill or dead at the hands of doctors that they themselves do not deserve to live. I haven't even had a cold in over two years and I never go to doctors.

 Quoting: No Dhimmi


And forcing FT workers to QUIT (like me) when it will cost you 1/2 your net pay (based on age/income) between premiums and deductibles; then the other half goes for transportation, and getting pushed into a higher tax bracket if you're a working couple, with kids' raised, no debt and have no deductions, well guess, what, there goes the OTHER half of your net pay.

I am literally quitting my job, no joke.
I will not work just to pay taxes, insurance and transportation. See other post.

Have to keep income under $15k for ObamaCare to be free.
Well, I guess I'll have too; because I see that insurance companies may very well deny the spouse coverage under their spouse's private plan when this goes into effect. I'd be forced to Obamacare if my husband's company doesn't force all into it anyway...it's coming; I'm not going to delay the inevitable.

Screw it, I'm done. Gave employer notice 3 week's ago; Friday my last day.

Already worked 37 years FT; I'm tired anyway, and to work so others can game the system at my expense? Don't think so.
I'm just not going to work to feed the beast while I kill myself in the process; I can kill my OWN self supporting my husband instead of the system and that's what I plan on doing.

It's outrageously cost prohibitive. I don't know how dual working couples with kids are going to do it even with exemptions and deductions and this/that. I just don't.

Re: Actuaries' study predicts Obamacare to increase claims costs by 32 percent
I seen this story and wanted to share...not sure how to post a link.
WANT A FREE HOUSE ?
I was in my neighborhood restaurant this morning and was seated behind a group of jubilant individuals celebrating the coming implementation of the health care bill. I could not finish my breakfast. This is what ensued: They were a diverse group of several races and both sexes. I heard a young man exclaim, "Isn't Obama like Jesus Christ? I mean, after all, he is healing the sick."
A young woman enthusiastically proclaimed, "Yeah, and he does it for free. I cannot believe anyone would think that a free market wouldn't work for health care."
Another said, "The stupid Republicans want us all to starve to death so they can inherit all of the power. Obama should be made a Saint for what he did for those of us less fortunate."
At this, I had more than enough I arose from my seat, mustering all the restraint I could find, and approached their table. "Please excuse me; may I impose upon you for one moment?"
They smiled and welcomed me to the conversation. I stood at the end of their table, smiled as best I could and began an experiment.
"I would like to give one of you my house. It will cost you no money and I will pay all of the expenses and taxes for as long as you live there. Anyone interested?"
They looked at each other in astonishment. "Why would you do something like that?" asked a young man, "There isn't anything for free in this world." They began to laugh at me, as they did not realize this man had just made my point.
"I am serious, I will give you my house for free, no money whatsoever. Anyone interested?"
In unison, a resounding "Yeah" fills the room.
"Since there are too many of you, I will have to make a choice as to who receives this money-free bargain."
I noticed an elderly couple was paying attention to the spectacle unfolding before their eyes, the old man shaking his head in apparent disgust.
"I tell you what; I will give it to the one of you most willing to obey my rules."
Again, they looked at one another, an expression of bewilderment on their faces.
The perky young woman asked, "What are the rules?"
I smiled and said, "I don't know. I have not yet defined them. However, it is a free home that I offer you."
They giggled amongst themselves, the youngest of which said, "What an old coot. He must be crazy to give away his home. Go take your meds, old man."
I smiled and leaned into the table a bit further. "I am serious, this is a legitimate offer."
They gaped at me for a moment.
"I'll take it you old fool. Where are the keys?" boasted the youngest among them.
"Then I presume you accept ALL of my terms then?" I asked.
The elderly couple seemed amused and entertained as they watched from the privacy of their table. "Oh yeah! Where do I sign up?"
I took a napkin and wrote, "I give this man my home, without the burden of financial obligation, so long as he accepts and abides by the terms that I shall set forth upon consummation of this transaction."
I signed it and handed it to the young man who eagerly scratched out his signature.
"Where are the keys to my new house?" he asked in a mocking tone of voice.
All eyes were upon us as I stepped back from the table, pulling the keys from pocket and dangling them before the excited new homeowner.
"Now that we have entered into this binding contract, witnessed by all of your friends, I have decided upon the conditions you are obligated to adhere to from this point forward. You may only live in the house for one hour a day. You will not use anything inside of the home. You will obey me without question or resistance. I expect complete loyalty and admiration for this gift I bestow upon you. You will accept my commands and wishes with enthusiasm, no matter the nature. Your morals and principles shall be as mine. You will vote as I do, think as I do and do it with blind faith. These are my terms. Here are your keys." I reached the keys forward and the young man looked at me dumbfounded.
"Are you out of your mind? Who would ever agree to those ridiculous terms?" the young man appeared irritated.
"You did when you signed this contract before reading it, understanding it and with the full knowledge that I would provide my conditions only after you committed to the agreement."
The elderly man chuckled as his wife tried to restrain him. I was looking at a now silenced and bewildered group of people.
"You can shove that stupid deal up your a** old man. I want no part of it!" exclaimed the now infuriated young man.
'You have committed to the contract, as witnessed by all of your friends. You cannot get out of the deal unless I agree to it. I do not intend to let you free now that I have you ensnared. I am the power you agreed to. I am the one you blindly and without thought chose to enslave yourself to. In short, I am your Master."
At this, the table of celebrating individuals became a unified group against the unfairness of the deal.
After a few moments of unrepeatable comments and slurs, I revealed my true intent.
"What I did to you is what this administration and congress did to you with the health care legislation. I easily suckered you in and then revealed the real cost of the bargain. Your folly was in the belief that you can have something you did not earn, and for that which you did not earn, you willingly allowed someone else to think for you. Your failure to research, study and inform yourself permitted reason to escape you. You have entered into a trap from which you cannot flee. Your only chance of freedom is if your new Master gives it to you. A freedom that is given can also be taken away. Therefore, it is not freedom at all."
With that, I tore up the napkin and placed it before the astonished young man. "This is the nature of your new health care legislation."
I turned away to leave these few in thought and contemplation -- and was surprised by applause.
The elderly gentleman, who was clearly entertained, shook my hand enthusiastically and said, "Thank you, Sir. These kids don't understand Liberty ."
He refused to allow me to pay my bill as he said, "You earned this one. It is an honor to pick up the tab."
