Gay community ‘Coming Out’ to enroll in Obamacare
FOX-2 St. Louis ^ | October 11, 2013 | Staff Writer

Posted on 10/11/2013 9:14:23 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Jeff Jones started shopping for health insurance as soon as the Obamacare insurance marketplaces opened on October 1.

The Kentucky resident is like a lot LGBT citizens who have not had access to affordable health insurance in the past. If Jones, 47, had been able to legally marry, he would have immediately been eligible for coverage under his partner, Nathan Walker’s, policy. Walker has domestic partnership benefits at work, but the couple haven’t lived together long enough to qualify for them.

“I’m a diabetic, so I do want to make sure I’m covered,” Jones said.

As a whole the LGBT community has less experience with insurance than the general population. A survey done by Out2Enroll, a group that focuses on helping the LGBT community with health issues, found that about a third of respondents were uninsured. It’s estimated some 16.3% of the general population is uninsured.

In honor of National Coming Out Day on Friday, Out2Enroll’s “Be Out. Be Healthy. Get Covered” campaign has launched a new LGBT-friendly website with advice about how to navigate the insurance marketplace.

Wait until the HIV positive community is given morphine and a cot instead of more life prolonging therapies. Those courses of treatment do not fit into the cost/benefit matrix the government wants.

This was one of the goals of ObamaCare, to have homosexuals with their astronomical health costs covered by the taxpayers. Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco district will have 100% participation, no doubt.

I’m glad they are coming out to register. It will be good to have a national register of homosexuals. It will make it easier in the future.

You've got to be kidding. Homos will get whatever meds they need even if the government has to kill children to do it.

And as an active homosexual, he is almost guaranteed to have some chronic health or mental issue to deal with, which is related to “the lifestyle.”

NEVER give the government any information you wouldn't give your worst enemy.

A totalitarian government that has a list of every single homosexual is a very dangerous place to be gay. Ask any Cuban homosexual, or any one in an islamist country.

Not if the homosexual community is a reliable voting block. Without risk of losing them to alternative political groups they serve no purpose and the level of commitment to them is all mouth and no fist. (no pun intended)

The people who have the most need for medical care will rush to be the first to enroll.

It’s like finding your barn is burning and calling the insurance company to cover it. Can it be done?

Sure, if the insurance company can charge other policyholders enough to pay for all the burning barns that will need to be covered.

In effect, we, the taxpayers, are going to be subsidizing these burning barns. And it will be sold to the public as something that a caring nation should do. (Not that we don’t already furnish public health care through local governments and charity from hospitals and doctors)

The problem will arise when you don’t get enough taxpayers without burning barns in the program to spread the cost around.

The gay homosexual guys will cost a lot to extend their lives a few years, like 50k to 150k per year.

Then, the lesbian women, who live to their 60-70’s will take their turn re eating up the health care $’s with severe mental illness and depression and long term chronic diseases.

I will be the WWII vet needing a heart valve that will get the shot and a cot. He is more likely to not be an Obama supporter, so his health needs are a lower priority.

Right on cue, that basketball player is now claiming that homophobia is preventing teams from picking him up.

It's not "insurance" anymore, but a wealth redistribution scheme. In their more unguarded moments, this illegitimate government has admitted as much.

Insurance is managing risk, nothing more.

When an outside party dumps an inordinate amount of risk into the equation, and then demands the same coverage, management becomes an extinct species.

The gays I know are very pro Obamacare.

Their health is such a mess from their promiscuity and their weird sexual ways that a lot of them have terrible diseases. It is worth it to them to pay anything for some sort of health care. I remember one I knew who had resistant gonorrhea in his throat from the things he did. But he died from AIDS. People like that will pay the overpriced, insane Obamacare prices for problems like that.

Obamacare is PC, they don’t care if people who live right and take care of their health have are punished by subsidizing these jacked up plans.

That should really help the cause. A population known for perverted sexual activity that spread a modern day plague all across American and Europe is in favor of ObamaCare. Right. Keep in the good work. Every time the fags “come out” to support it, 1 million more Americans will reject it.

A sizable number of gays are HIV positive and “uninsurable” because of pre-existing conditions. I would expect a high percentage of them to sign up for Obamacare because they were rejected from most private health insurance plans.

Why would you insure an expense? People need to get to the basic foundation of government run healthcare systems. You do not prolong or sustain an expense side of the balance sheet. You sustain and help the net credits (producers) of the balance sheet.

When progressivism meets this reality of Obamacare, the 2013 version of pitchforks, tar, and feathers will show up. It will happen.

The poor, unemployed, blacks, hispanics, and middle class are going to get bitch slapped and beaten under Obamacare. They are just too dazed, confuzed, and stupid with an obamaphone in one ear and en EBT card in the hand. What they won't have is their monthly cash premiums paid and their copays and coinsurance met. All the free mamagrams, colonoscopies, and yearly check-ups don't mean squat once you're sick or broken. Then it's time to drain the cash which they will refuse to do because they thought obamacare was just like food stamps and phones.

They need to give up their risky lifestyle choices for coverage.

Drug abuse (poppers, meth, cocaine, X, alcohol abuse...), random hookups with high risk partners, bug chasing, unsanitary practices...
