Obama Backer Finds First 96 DOCTORS She Contacts Won’t Accept Her New Obamacare Insurance…
Rightwing News ^ | April 10, 2014 | John Hawkins

What good is “insurance” if it means you can’t find a doctor to treat you?

-snip-

My shiny, never used Horizon health card is as effective as a dollar bill during the Great Depression. In fact, an expert tells CNN, “I think of (Obamacare) as giving everyone an ATM card in a town where there are no ATM machines.”

I had to contact 5 doctors before one accepted me as a new Medicare patient. I can imagine how much worse the situation is with medicaid and Obamacare.

RENTAL CAR AGENT: Can I help you? Name please?

JERRY: Seinfeld. I made a reservation for a mid-size.

RENTAL CAR AGENT: I’m sorry, we have no mid-size available at the moment.

JERRY: I don’t understand, I made a reservation, do you have my reservation?

RENTAL CAR AGENT: Yes, we do, unfortunately we ran out of cars.

JERRY: But the reservation keeps the car here. That’s why you have the reservation.

RENTAL CAR AGENT: I know why we have reservations.

JERRY: I don’t think you do. If you did, I’d have a car. See, you know how to take the reservation, you just don’t know how to *hold* the reservation and that’s really the most important part of the reservation, the holding. Anybody can just take them.

***************************

Insurance thru Obamacare is kind of like that. You pay for healthcare insurance, but they don’t give you healthcare.

Ninety-six doctors measured the value of my life by how much the government is willing to pay for my preventive visit.

Ninety six repair shops wouldn't fix my car for what my insurance company was willing to pay. What injustice. They should be forced to fix it.

By the way, this person is not getting ObamaCare, she is getting Medicaid. My question is, How much do you value your own life where you are only willing to get free insurance?

If Democrats are not defeated, if Obamacare is not repealed, in 10 years it will be illegal for doctors to refuse treatment of people who have Obamacare.

Ninety-six doctors measured the value of my life by how much the government is willing to pay for my preventive visit. I remain grateful for the Affordable Care Act and understand that we, the people, must continue to fight to make sure that the access it promises to provide can become tangible for all. Though the government, under President Obama, has made tremendous strides in equalizing the divide between the healthcare ‘haves’ and ‘have nots,’ we still have so far to go.

So far to go? Not really. All we have to do is pass laws requiring doctors to treat all comers and forbidding them from leaving their occupation.

Simple

One friend reports having ten doctors tell him they won’t take any Obama patients. They suggested such people go to county hospital emergency since they’d always been available to them at no personal cost anyway.

Ps. Or those wanting free care can keep going to the county health clinics ( and not the county hospital emergency) if they just need regular care or treatment and it’s not an emergency situation. Same deal no charge to the user ( or sacked lie cost services if the user can afford to pay). Obamacare seems to have added little or nothing in the way of additional medical care to these mostly non- paying people, little or nothing more than what they already had for free

"My shiny, never used Horizon health card is as effective as a dollar bill during the Great Depression. In fact, an expert tells CNN, “I think of (Obamacare) as giving everyone an ATM card in a town where there are no ATM machines.” According to a study 33% of doctors are NOT accepting Medicaid. Here in Jersey, one has a dismal 40 percent chance of finding a doctor who accepts Medicaid – the lowest in the country."

Ms. Kimberly, allow me try to explain. There is a shortage of physicians in the United States, as compared to most other developed countries. there has been for years. (This as a result of decisions made during the administration of the previous Democrat president! -- "There are fewer physicians per person than in most other OECD countries. In 2010, for instance, the U.S. had 2.4 practicing physicians per 1,000 people — well below below the OECD average of 3.1.")

Put another way -- your President Obama got elected by promising everyone in the 3rd grade class a pony. Indeed most people actually believed him. The problem is -- there aren't enough ponies around. And even if there were enough ponies, there is not enough money to pay for all the ponies.

This reminds me of the day after obozocare was passed. There were reports of obamaphone people showing up at doctor’s offices loudly demanding “I want my free doctor visit!”

Now that the same people have their shiny new medicaid cards and obozocare insurance cards, they’re back again, still demanding their free doctor visit.

Morons.

If she's expecting much preventative care, she really has a rude awakening. Obama has cut our preventative testing by more than half. Women used to be covered for a yearly Pap smear. Now it is every three years from 18-49. Only every five years for women 49-65. AND for women over 65.......only if you have symptoms. I have friends who have been told by their doctors they won't need a pap after 65. I read those tests. The only reason some women over age 65 survive uterine cancer is the tumor may shed cells WELL BEFORE THERE ARE VISIBLE SYMPTOMS. After symptoms.......much lower survival rate. Also mammograms won't be covered until 50. Most of the women that I have known with breast cancer were nearly ALL under age 50. Good luck to us! This is Obama’s War on Women.

There are towns with no ATM machines. I had a person from my hometown tell me “You can always get $20 cash back when you write a check.”

I said “What if I need more than $20?”

She responded “Why would you need more than $20 in this town?” I couldn’t argue with that.

Good analogy but I like this one...Obamacare is like the Islam promise of 27 Virgins; there may be 27 virgins in hell, but there is no sex in the hereafter so they can not use them. Obamacare gives you many choices for insurance however you can not use any of them even if you have the healthcare card.

The demidiots spent billions, millions just on the website to drive one insane if signing up, with the stupidest healthcare on the planet because people can’t get doctors, or the online info is wrong, the payment did not process, or they end up paying the bill themselves. So much for the honor system.

In the end, if they had given the so called millions uninsured a check for buying their own basic insurance for ten years instead of the debacle, it would have been cheaper overall for the taxpayer, and less frustrating for the Healthcare field. No one could make this stuff up!

One simple solution was a one page law that allowed all citizens to buy health insurance across state lines like car insurance, and the price would have went down with better coverage. Unbelievable. Always the KISS principle!

You’ve got a jerky knee there, FRiend.

Nowhere did I say it was funny. I don’t see a single “LOL” or even a smiley face emoticon.

Obozocare is a disaster and its victims are a looming tragedy - that includes hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people who will be unable to find providers to treat them, or hospitals that are in their network.

It’s going to be the deathknell for this once-great country if it’s not completely repealed within the next couple of years. By then, even those of us who are currently insured are likely to find our coverage cancelled.

I don’t find that a bit funny. I stand by my comment that anyone who believed they were going to receive free healthcare the day obozo signed the ACA was a moron. Some still believe it, and they too are morons. Doesn’t mean they deserve to be laughed at, which I didn’t, nor does it mean they deserve to die (regardless of who they voted for)...which very well may happen.
