I don't support Obamacare because I think its long-term effects will be negative (tax spikes which hurt the economy, ridiculous waiting lines such as those in the UK under the NHS, etc.) its constitutionality is highly dubious, and the majority of Americans have stood against it; but there is no doubt that health insurance company execs need to be held accountable for the unethical and tyrannical way they operate. People on the Left and the Right can unite in agreement over the need for reform.
Well you know I work two jobs. One is supposed to give me benefits, but not until they hire me permanately. I'm just a Temp now. So I need a second job, and I don't get any benefits.
Maybe I'll try to work for the Government so I can get coverage.
FUCK PRIVATE INSURANCE COMPANIES! I HOPE THEM PEOPLE WILL ROT IN HELL!
Deny care or dump the sick, just to maximize profits? That could never happen in America!(Irony if you don't get it, so no flamming please)
Healthcare is too important to be manipulated by private health insurance companies. Some (or most) might say that they would never allow the government to stand between them and their doctor, but that is exactly what the private insurers do – for profit. In addition to eliminating private insurance, we need to determine WHY healthcare is so expensive (something rarely – if ever – discussed in Congress) and find ways to reduce those costs across the board.
Why is healthcare so expensive? How else would an insurance executive afford to live in a gated community similar to a redoubt in enemy territory? A lot want to protect their looted wealth. Because slavery is illegal corporations need to find another loophole to reduce workers' spending power and potential to improve one's position, and one such loophole is big insurance. It is meant to be a pretext for siphoning off the working and middle class' wealth.
DO NOT LIKE OBAMA HEALTH CARE ? TRY GOP NO CARE !!!
Ed Hanway is guilty of crimes against…
@ahoog69 I agree. The right-wing propaganda machine, while fighting healthcare reform, tried to convince people that there would be "death panels". Those death panels did and do exist in the offices of insurance companies not the government. People accept from the private sector what they fear from the government. I also agree that insurance is a secondary problem to the out of control costs of direct healthcare. But gee, the free market will take care of it. Right?
Pathetic.. Truly pathetic… Mr and Mrs politician…. You know it's pathetic because you have government run health care… pretty much sums it up.. Can you say contradicting … Jokes on the American people…. PROBLEM is the joke is not funny and people are dying….
THANK YOU DAD, THAT YOU EMIGRATE TO CANADA NOT USA.
I WOULD BE DEAD LONG TIME AGO DUE TO MY PRE EXISTED CONDITIONS
You could also call this "Death for Riches!" Fucking murderous CEOs. Good work BNF. I like real people telling real stories.
I just recently lost my job. Without insurance my 3 monthly rx are arouned $2,000. Who can afford that? I can't. I have 4 more days of rx left. Missing 1 day of rx may cause me to go into a condition known as status epilepticus–that being have a seizure over and over and over until you get treatment or die. I've been there once. Luckily I was at work when it happened.
Healthcare is a human right!!! Canada can do it. France can do it. UK can do it amongst others. Why cant the US?
Gold plated flatware??? F YOU!!!
I will never give private health insurance a dam penny of my money… Go @#$^ yourselves you greedy pigs…. Doctors and hospitals also need to start charging less.. .. Problem is these greedy bastards OWN our politicians … THAT IS THE PROBLEM!!!!
Why are American health insurance companies stand alone business models?
Taking your insurance from your job was your 1st mistake. I have my own, personal policy for years, as I am self employed. But after the crash, my business gets too slow, so I go back in, and out of the workplace, as necessary. I NEVER take employer insurance, because I would be fucked. Sorry you are fucked. But, you made choices.
I have health insurance from work, but its still not good enough. I have a $1,500 deductible before work pays anything, and even after that they only pay 80%. Some might say, 20% is not so bad. Well it all depends on the procedure being down. That 20% can be $5,000. I mean who has the money to pay that?
I use the Brit NHS on average we pay in taxes some $3500 a year to help pay for it. The average US citizens pays around $8500 to pay for their private /tax based HC programs. In my 70 years I've never received a NHS bill be it a simple visit to my Dr or a stay in Hospital. No co-pay, no deductibles, no pre-conditions, etc. Being over 60 prescription drugs are free same for children including Uni students or certain medical conditions including cancer drugs. Cost per prescription drug $10
Workers compensation insurance is just as bad if not worse. I am an injured worker who has been the target of heinous crimes including the intentional maiming of my body during workers compensation medical procedures. At the 3RD lumbar epidural that took place on June 6, 2013 under the care of Dr. Thomas J. Phillips, Orthopedic surgeon, through Employer's Compensation Insurance Company of Nevada, I was brutally forced against my advance directives under anesthesia. My body was maimed from my skull down to my tailbone both physically and medically. I was injected throughout my back and other parts of my body with some sort of chemicals that corroded and dried out the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves in my back, neck shoulders, legs. Knowing that I would contact law enforcement and many others, they also maimed organs in my body INCLUDING my liver, esophagus, heart and nervous system. I believe that this was done to paint me as a person who abuses alcohol. I did drink however, I stopped knowing that something horrific had been done to my body. After the above, I had realized that I have been intentionally harmed several times before. I thought that I was accidentally being harmed at a previous lumbar ESI procedure. I have had intrusions into my home, my food and drinks, protein powder, mouthwash was all tainted with some sort of chemicals that affected different parts of my body. My car has been vandalized, I believe that my dog has been poisoned, documents related to my workers comp claim and medical history were stolen out of my home. I discover that documents were altered over and above my signature, medical and surgery reports were falsified and much more. My employer, Metropolitan Home Mortgage, had informed Employers Compensation Insurance Company that I had not been hurt at work but was hurt at home. That is a flat out lie. I have since learned that maiming injured workers and targeting them through relentless crimes – some heinous in nature, is a common strategy of corporations including insurance companies, law firms, employers, government (rogue government officials) and many others. The plethora of relentless crimes is often referred to as "organized stalking" AKA "group stalking" – according to the National Center for Victims of Crimes. Other names are "gang stalking", "cause stalking" and "government sponsored stalking". Yes, our government at all levels including federal, state, city, county, local levels do participate in these crimes for various different reasons. I now suffer in chronic pain and disability. My workers comp attorney told me to file for permanent disability back in 2013 as a result of the maiming. I have done so but am unable to qualify for disability because my medical records and studies inside and outside of workers comp are falsified to hide the muscle, nerve, ligament damage. I have since spoken to many attorneys who can't seem to help. Not just workers comp attorney but also litigation, medical mal practice, etc. I've even spoken to other insurance carriers. One medical mal-practice insurance carrier informed me that a medical mal-practice insurance carrier would not cover what has happened to me because what was done to me is known as "medical battery". Medical battery is an intentionally act whereas medical malpractice is not intentional. Next month, I have a hearing with the social security Judge. I don't expect a miracle since I have also found out through injured worker activists that maiming injured workers has been going on for years. However, their intent is to mar your credibility by having the injured worker submit to a psych evaluation wherein yet another medical report will be falsified to protect the defense in the workers comp claim. The psych report will indicate that the injured worker is delusional or mentally ill and that their claims of being maimed during workers comp medical procedures are part of the delusion. In my case alone, I have met more corrupt people than I knew existed. Not only medical professionals who are willing to falsify medical reports but also surgery centers, hospitals, elected officials at many levels, attorneys… the list goes on and on. If these crimes have existed for decades in the workers compensation system, then, why aren't we as citizens of the greatest country in the world warned? No one warned me about what I have dome to know are the most common crimes in the workers compensation system and those are the crimes that are facilitated against injured workers! HEINOUS CRIMES!
You need to to a current video on insurance. Like how now many companies are making necessary drugs on new teirs that they cover less and less
My cigna ins costs $740 per mo for family and my deductible is $4k per person! It is useless! I live in fear of having to go to Dr! This aint F'n right at all! I would smash whoever has caused this
