Why did Jug Ears take all that money out of Medicare?
I'm glad you asked, Harry.
It went into the part of Obamacare which now permits seniors, such as yourself and your spouse, to obtain, free of co-pay, yearly phsyical exams, pap smear, breast exam for your spouse, prostate exam for yourself, mammograms and colonoscopies.
LOL her whole post is conjecture without any actual research and intellect...
Interesting, yesterday I got mocked for doing research - today I get mocked for not doing research.
Yes, I asked a few questions - I asked them because they don't have answers from Romney or Ryan yet. I think they need to be answered before people can make an informed decision. Are you not the least bit curious?
What part do you think need "research," Khayos? What part do you disagree with?
The part that says Ryan will take the second highest bidder and take a yearly bid?
Here ya go, straight from Breitbart, so I know you won't question it.
But in addition, each year private insurers as well as a federal fee-for-service insurance provider would submit bids to the government to provide that same coverage at the lowest cost they could charge.
Or do you disbelieve the part where Romney + Ryan will repeal Obamacare, which contains the law which mandates health care coveage for people with pre-existing conditions?
Frankly, I'm at bit surprised you haven't heard that one - but here you go -
“What the Court did not do on its last day in session,” adding, “I will do on my first day if elected President of the United States. And that is I will act to repeal Obamacare.” He doubled down on the rhetoric in a new campaign ad with the slogan, “Day one. Job one. Repeal Obamacare.”
What happens to those millions of married couples who are going to have one person in both age groups? Does that mean they will no longer qualify for a "family plan" after retirement? When both my parents were alive and on Medicare they, like every normal married couple with the same group insurance plan, payed a lower rate.
However, if the older spouse is covered under the guaranteed traditional Medicare plan he/she's been promised but the younger spouse is covered under the voucher plan, won't they both be paying the higher individual rate for their obviously different plans?
Also - Paul Ryan's plan calls for contracting the voucher plan to the second lowest bidder - subject to change yearly.
I don't know how many of you have dealt with insurance companies but they pay slowly sometimes....sometimes it takes more than a year. There is a huge potential for bills to become lost in a system in which the carrier change yearly - if you were hospitalized in November and the bill hit the insurance company in late December and the carrier changed on January 1st, I can pretty much assure you, based on years of medical billing experience, that bill is going to become lost and remain unpaid and eventually it will end up as the patient's responsibility because both insurance companies are going to deny responsibility for it.
How many old people are going to be able to keep up with, not only a yearly changing premium (which makes it hard to budget your limited funds) but also with changing carriers, changing forms, changing benefits and changing addresses?
And what happens if there are no bidders? One of the reasons Medicare was formed in the first place was because no private insurance company wanted to cover senior citizens. Face it, they're the most expensive people to cover. If they didn't want them then, when medical expenses were much smaller, what makes Romney and Ryan think they're going to want them now? Especially if they abolish ObamaCare as promised. Without ObamaCare there is no guaranteed coverage for people with pre-existing conditions anymore.....that means no insurance company, even those bidding for a Medicare voucher plan, needs to accept anyone with a pre-existing condition....show me a 82 year old without at least one pre-exisiting medical condition and I'll show you a one-in-10 million 82 year old.
Do you really think Mitt and Paul have thought this through?
Better yet, has anyone who thinks Romney/Ryan has got the answer thought it through?
Doesn't any of this concern any of you?
Y'all know that post I made in the other thread about what happens when a strong, decisive leader like Paul Ryan steps up and proposes a plan we NEED to save our country? You how I said that strong, decisive leadership is met with nothing but hate and venom from the left?
