They’re already getting health care via emergency rooms and Medicaid. Nobody is getting refused healthcare in America.
Only 3 to 7 percent of uninsured claims are paid by the consumer - this stat came from a hospital biz consultant I know.
46% of healthcare in America is funded by govt: Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans, etc.
I got a letter from the VA telling me that since I am in the VA health system I need do nothing when Obamacare hits. I also have a civilian plan with Humana that administers my Medicare benefits that I prefer since I can see doctors much more quickly than with the VA hospital. According to the letter, that also fulfills the Obamacare requirement that I have health insurance. So I will wait and see.
