Skip to comments.The Obamacare Scam
Posted on 02/05/2014 2:59:40 PM PST by TurboZamboni
Many health plans are smiling. We've essentially been forced by Congress to buy their catastrophic policies at first-dollar coverage prices. But because many Americans don't remember catastrophic policies or know what real insurance is or how much insurance should cost -- or how low cash-based medical prices could be -- they don't know badly they're being scammed.
To be clear, this is not the first act in this Congressional scam. True insurance got more difficult to buy after Congress favored first-dollar health plans with the HMO Act of 1973. Most employers were forced to offer HMO plans. Like the frog being slowed cooked, people began to think of prepaid health care (HMO/health plans) as health insurance when it actually was a corporate version of socialized medicine with centralized pooling of dollars and centralized control over medical decisions. Obamacare is not a gift to the uninsured. It is a gift to health plan corporations. They get: · BOATLOADS OF CASH - 98% of all new spending in Obamacare - $1 trillion - goes to health plans through the Obamacare exchanges. · FEWER BILLS - Deductibles are huge, so health plans in the exchanges won't have to pay most health care bills. · REDUCED COMPETITION - True catastrophic policies were outlawed for people over age 29, forcing many traditional health insurers to stop offering their policies or go out of business.

I add democratcare to keywords, because it is a more appropriate term in this election year.
Hi there congress ... ain’t gonna see no more damage done. Ain’t foolin’ around!!!
Actually, the remaining “catastrophic” health plans for under 29’s aren’t true catastrophic plans either. They have all the Obamacare coverage mandates and cost only a bit less than the other plans.
“Its time to end the Obamacare scam. The ACA-mandated grip of health plans on our wages, our personal health and Americas wealth must come to an end. Obamacare must be repealed. Insurance must be put back in its proper place. Cash payments for routine and minor care must become the rule, not the exception. And charitable care must be re-established for the poor and needy. With or without Congress, the American people must begin now to build the post-Obamacare health care system.”
Crapcare like climate change AKA global warming scam is a way to destroy whats inplace and works with no plan in place to replace it just a way to siphon hugh amounts of taxpayer monies to themselves thier friends and family
Quote of the Week:
“So how did we decide on our initial prices? I asked the surgeons how much they would like to be paid for the procedures you see on our website...After adding [anesthesia charges, facility charges and] what seemed to be an appropriate profit margin and an allowance for equipment purchases and upgrades, we had prices that were one-sixth to one-tenth of what many ‘not for profit’ hospitals in our area were charging for the same procedures. Our price was half what Medicare paid these same hospitals...” - G. Keith Smith, M.D., co-founder of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma where he practices anesthesiology, Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, Winter 2014.
Not to mention another invasion of privacy.
Winter 2013 edition of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons detailing exactly how “The Affordable Care Act Destroys Privacy.” In the article, Brase scrutinizes historical privacy infringements within HIPAA, HITECH and Electronic Medical Records, and points to the ACA’s exchanges as simply a master control and surveillance system of health information:
...but did they include paperwork prices for government reimbursement.
