‘Mr. Trump has widened the gulf between people who pay full price for their coverage and those who get generous subsidies or free Medicaid. That, in turn, has deepened the resentment that has long simmered among many who do not qualify for government assistance toward those who do.’
What they don’t tell you is that the people who are getting it for free get what they pay for. A lot of them are getting worthless Health Care.
When dealing with the NYT, you have to always ask yourself: what is the narrative they are pushing.
In this case, its likely single payer.
hate to tell you this, but if your policy is $1200/mo with a 6K deductible, it really cost you $1700/mo. barkie care.
A plan I looked at had a $2500 per year deductible before the 80/20 coverage/payment split kicked in. It cost nearly $800 a month. I am better off saving the $800 a month and adopting a lower risk lifestyle. If I save $9600.00 a year towards medical expenses and pay for routine doctors visits out of pocket then in ten years, if I need an ankle transplant or heart surgery I’ll have at least $150,000 (including interest) for the procedure. If I don’t need the medical procedure I have the cash for the down payment on a Ferrari.
Some of the best alternatives are the Christian cost sharing plans such as:
Samaritan’s purse, Medi-Share, and Liberty HealthShare.
The costs are often less than half of comparible insurance plans.
Anything, ANYTHING, in the NY Slimes is not about truth—it is about their agenda, which ever way their wind is blowing on the day they publish. Nonsense!
Trump has nothing to do with your problem lady. Your vote for the Kenyan brought on this problem. You believed his lies; too bad for you.
These rate hikes and deductibles were all predicted by those who saw the real truth but a lot of the population were too stupid or too democrat or both, to see the truth.
The natural result, as in all oppressive socialist systems, will be first, to lie and cheat (about income, taxes, whatever the government force you into), the second will be a black market.
The NYTimes suddenly doesn’t like Obamacare? They blame Trump but Trump contributed to Hillary, not Obama.
Ah, the wonders of Government Run Health Care and Socialism.
I’ll bet Gwen supported Obamunism and hates Trump, too.
I love how she’s blaming Trump for OMAMAcare.
The New York Times, All The News Five Years Late.
Insurers were all in, now we know why. A guaranteed revenue stream, first from the govt, then from the working class. The exemptocrats in congress, well they don’t have to worry about that. It should be unconstitutional for legislation to create a law, then exempt themselves.
I was under the impression that the state would take it out of your hide after you die. After you die your children only get to inherit what’s left after the state gets paid back from the Medicaid funds you used.
That’s why I’m going to die when it’s my time. I can’t afford health insurance or Medicaid.
Family coverage for us would have been a thousand a month through exchanges, $1200-1300 for COBRA.
We switched to Medishare. $350/month for a $10,000 deductible. It is essentially catastrophic health insurance.
However, it does provide negotiated discounts for a number of services. I’ve noticed that the major hospitals and medical “chains” give you anywhere from a 30% discount to a flat copay.
This means the dentist I like isn’t in network but the pediatrician in the Children’s Health network and the strip center dentist chains all accept it.
My only frustration is that because it isn’t legally insurance, I cannot contribute to the HSA anymore and cannot deduct the “premiums” from the HSA.
It seems to me that people who earn nothing and contribute nothing get everything for free, said Ms. Hurd, 30. And the people who work hard and struggle for every penny barely end up surviving.
We were in the gap for several years here in MO where they didn’t do medicare expansion. Didn’t make enough to be eligible for “the marketplace” and made too much for free insurance.
Our choices were, both of us work and send the kids to public school or do without insurance. We did without. That second person working would have been working for nothing but insurance costs.
