Obamacare: Government Decided, Government Provided
In 2014 your healthcare will change. Your doctors and hospitals are all planning changes right now to comply with the PPACA (Obamacare) so they can remain in business.
Did you know that in 2011 your W-2 will have to include the value of employer provided healthcare benefits? Not taxed…yet.
Did you know millions of low income Seniors, income under about $20,000 per couple, will be forced onto Medicaid?
Did you know that 17% of hospitals may close due to PPACA (Obamacare) per the CBO (Congressional Budget Office)?
Did you know a physician shortage of 63,000 doctors is estimated by 2015 as doctors retire and move into other medical roles to escape PPACA?
Did you know that all insurance companies will provide only those treatments approved by the Secretary of HHS or the company will be OUT of the insurance exchange and OUT of business?
Did you know what happens in your doctor’s office no longer stays there? Your medical history, procedures, medications, conditions, will be available to your dentist, therapist, any medical professional treating you and various government workers overseeing the database.
Did you know that in 2011 cuts to Medicare home health care are denying basic services such as physical therapy and home health aides?
Did you know that in 2012 Medicare cuts to dialysis treatments begin?
Did you know that in 2012 cuts to Medicare Hospice begin?
Did you know in 2014 government IPAB begins submitting proposals to cut Medicare?
Did you know in 2014 the government will impose tax on nearly all private health insurance plans.
Did you know in 2017 all physicians must use pay-for-quality programs where your doctors receive more for following government treatment guides and are penalized if they do not?
Did you know that doctors are now combining into large medical centers so they can comply with the complex mandates and stay in business?
Did you know Obamacare relies on ACO’s (remember HMO’s?) to take care of us as our “medical home” where we can be tracked and provided ONLY THAT CARE the government’s Independent Payment Advisory Board determines should be given?
Any of these changes by themselves is detrimental to our healthcare and in combination will destroy America’s healthcare…the finest in the world. Notice everyone wants to come here for their care.
PPACA ( Obamacare) will take away access to healthcare with rationing by waiting.
Just having insurance does no good, if there are no providers because they have been driven out of business by Obamacare. Americans will be begging for any medical care and this administration would use that crisis to provide government chosen and trained doctors, nurses, etc.
Every facet of your healthcare: Doctor, hospital, dialysis, stents…
Government Decided and Government Provided.
