    All these people who wanted obamacare never ask what the actual cost would be,per week or month. It is like looking at a menu with no prices on it. It’s too expensive for you. Find out what the cost is before you condemn or compare private health insurance.

    Just tellin in like it is!

    I’ve already been watching the rationing and basing of care on what a bunch of bureaucrats have predertmined, AND based on how salvageable you are, decline the quality of healthcare here in CA for YEARS already. Doctors here have already been stopping to take medicare, and there is no medicaid here because it’s put directly into the absolute disaster they call medi-Cal, the state welfare program.

    And with this new healthcare bill, our healthcare disaster is now going nationwide. It’s all because THE MOST important thing that the healthcare bill was/is based on, is what they call “outcome based” medicine, and IT IS THE DRIVER of rationing. Basing medicine on how your outcome looks ON PAPER, how healthy you look on paper, and/or the totality of the “outcomes” of any doctor’s patients, is exactly HOW THEY GET PAID. Your best healthcare options, what’s best for each individual patient, are not part of any equation. You are particularly unlucky if you or your symptoms don’t fit in their pre-determined/pre-decided/pre-required, mold.

    I could, and should, write at length on this very subject…the effects on the patient. I am the one in the family, and of friends (I take care of my elderly mother right now), that can handle the medical community and wade through the bureauocracy when somene gets sick. So they all come to me for help. I have been through it, watched the decline, know their tricks, seen it all first hand. And it’s not pretty. Unfortunately, it’s been getting much much worse, FAST. And it’s coming to all of you. If you think cadillac plans are the answer, I assure you, you are sorely mistaken. Perhaps if you are rich and pay cash, you may be better off for now, but sooner or later, it will infiltrate every part of our system.

    They keep talking in the news about how pre-existing conditions are now covered, and they keep saying the doctors/hospitals/etc are doing all these unneccessary tests, but I am telling you…I have already seen FIRST HAND, doctors telling you that you DON’T NEED certain tests, or not tell you about your condition at all, so you don’t even know that you’re being denied or not getting care you need. There are all kinds of ways they get around it, they don’t write certain symptoms in charts, or refuse to operate based on minor things, or wont take certain patients, they find any number of excuses to keep you from getting medical care you may need or might be helpful.

    When it come’s to “outcome” based medicine, exactly what the new healthcare bill is based on, that’s the only way any of them get paid. If they decide you need a test that’s not on the list handed down from bureaurocrats, then it is deemed unneccessary and refused payment. Whether it’s medicare or an insurance company, you end up paying for it yourself, out of pocket, and the doctor gets dinged for not adhering, so they stick to the list of care they are allowed to offer you. Or better said, they just don’t tell you about helpful things that are NOT on the list. It’s all “Outcome” based medicine. The less they do, the healthier you look on paper, the better looking the “outcome”. The new “outcome” based healthcare bill equals rationing, period. No if’s, and’s, or but’s.

    Like I said, I could write at length on this and give detailed specific accounts of first hand experiences of what I’ve seen, but I’ve rambled long enough for a comment section. I could just cry.
