Thread: ...talking about National Healthcare...!

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">I don't have a problem with the quality of care here just the expense and inefficiency of the system. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    That's the problem, Brittie. With all the free-flying malpractice suits, the doctors are paying too much for malpractice insurance and thus pass it on to their patients in need plus the mark-up. It s.ucks. The Dems and Repubs have to come together on this one to come up with a plan that works for all. A very difficult task. We can't expect the rich people of the country to pay the price for this (and mind you I am not in the suggested category to foot the bill). But, there has to be a more fair way to distribute the expenses associated with his proposed plan.

    Hawkins receives special treatment, just like all the other rich people and politicians. If he weren't world famous, he would have been left to die.

    It isn't just the malpractice insurance though. It'll always be more expensive for malpractice insurance if you work in a busy metro area like NYC or Miami for example vs rural Nebraska. Insurance is a risk-assessment business. Remember many of those multi-million dollar lawsuit wins often end up being substantially reduced on appeal or never get paid out because of ongoing challenges by the insurance companies. Frankly any reform on this front will be a drop in the ocean.

    How is it possible for the average medical insurance premiums to rise by 87% in a 10yr period? It's runaway cost and it's not getting cheaper. Need to look at the 46 million uninsured. That's where the real cost is coming from. All of us with insurance are paying for the uninsured.

    So much for Palin's shrill talk on "death panels" The private insurance companies do it too:

    Terminally Ill Denied Drugs for Life, But Can Opt for Suicide

    The news from Barbara Wagner's doctor was bad, but the rejection letter from her insurance company was crushing.

    The 64-year-old Oregon woman, whose lung cancer had been in remission, learned the disease had returned and would likely kill her. Her last hope was a $4,000-a-month drug that her doctor prescribed for her, but the insurance company refused to pay.

    What the Oregon Health Plan did agree to cover, however, were drugs for a physician-assisted death. Those drugs would cost about $50.

    Death Drugs Cause Uproar in Oregon

    Don't ever assume the insurance companies have your best interests at heart.

    I'm not unsympathetic to those with no coverage. I guess I'm middle-of-the-road on this issue. With Obama's proposed plan, I'm safe because no matter where I go, my insurance goes with me. It retired with me, but I think of other people who lose their jobs and have to resort to a government health plan? This isn't a country that's ready to support that. Clinton tried it - it failed. And Obama is working hard for it and look at all the protests? Not all Repubs either. Nothing is in place here to support socialized health care.
