I’ve been saying since Obamacare passed that the best and brightest in the medical field will set up offshore, likely in the Caribbean, to cater to wealthy Americans who want to avoid the Death Panels.

Those enterprises will also provide some useful job opportunities for capable grunts.

Got my eyes opened when one provider offered to bill me $500 via insurance or $180 cash.

John DeWitt needs a reality check, as he is using gmail, that divulges every word in each message to anyone who can pay for “marketing tools”.

This is a reality I’ve been pondering. Started to look into alternative diabetes care yesterday morning, before reading a thread about Laurie Roth’s news that Obamacare means that senior diabetics are being denied coverage of their diabetes meds.

Looks like maybe I need to get as much testing done ASAP - stuff that HAS to be done by the medical community, and should be utilized while it is available to me - even while checking into alternative ways of managing diabetes. What’s difficult is the money crunch. They know they have to milk us dry of money at the same time as we need to be preparing for what they’ve got in store for us.

A question I have: If a family bought with cash a small piece of remote farmland on which they could camp out in the event of a catastrophe like an EMP attack, would that land be taken away if the economy fell through to the point that we couldn’t keep paying on our home mortgage and had to do the bankruptcy thing?

Been paying out of pocket for HC for eight years now and couldn't be more satisfied. My plan of care is asserted betwixt my doc and yours truly, not some mindless headset-wearing-by-the-policy-manual drone shivering in some cubicle in MN who couldn't give a fat rat's butt about me, only the bottom line.

They'll squeeze NOS delivered, no matter how vital, if it saves the payor a few cents. If they don't reject treatments outright they'll delay, dispute, demand endless documentation, and delay some more hankering to tucker out the provider into giving up pursuing just reimbursement. And they're incentivized to do just that. No thanks-- not fair to the practitioner or the purported beneficiary.

Retain major medical/catastrophic if you must; probably wise, just choose carefully.
