My insurance, once “good,” is being accepted by less doctors now. It used to be a given you could see anyone- not anymore!
I laugh when people talk about how we had such a health care crisis that Obamacare was an attempt to deal with it. Any problems we had were because of prior government meddling. I was born in 1944 and when I was a boy the doctor came to our house to see me when I was sick and my parents had no problem paying the bill even though we were far from well to do. When I reached adulthood I could drive to the same doctor’s office, sign in, sit down and see the doctor within an hour, no appointment necessary. A person with no insurance who had to go to the hospital would have a more affordable bill than the copay for the same visit would be now even for those who have good insurance. The real problem with medical care is and has been govenment meddling and it is all done to force eventual adoption of “single payer” medicine. Once that is accomplished you will be better off in most instances to consult a shaman or “root doctor” than to go the emergency room. Once the government achieves that and the other major goal which is total control over the food supply then we will all be slaves.
