The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act for 2014 -5
Oct 14th, 2010
It is really difficult to read and try to decipher what is meant when this health insurance bill and The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act were not written in clear, decisive language. There are so many areas that are based on the assumption of what will happen as if the government were reading an encoded message locked inside a crystal ball.
1. Pay for new spending, in part, through spending and coverage cuts in Medicare Advantage, slowing the growth of Medicare provider payments, in part through the creation of a new Independent Payment Advisory Board, reducing Medicare and Medicaid drug reimbursement rate, cutting other Medicare and Medicaid spending
Now it is common knowledge that these health insurance benefits have billions worth of fraud and abuse running through the Medicare and Medicaid programs. However, would it not make more sense to address the abuse and fraud in this part of the health insurance system? Would it not make more sense if you were going to appoint an Independent Payment Advisory Board that you research and try to pin down exactly who is committing the fraud?
Why does our government want to punish the poorest of the poor and other healthcare individuals who are extremely disabled? Is it that anyone who is not able-bodied and able to carry their weight is a burden in the eyes of the government? This is not the path that this government or any government should be traveling down in the name of health insurance reform.
The attack on Medicare is uncalled for as well. The majority of the people who are currently on or will be on Medicare are our parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. Have they not spent their entire lives working, producing, and helping to contribute to making this the greatest country on earth? Is our government going to attack the very citizens that contributed to making this country as safe at it now is?
Eliminating the Medicare Advantage health insurance program is disgraceful. Yes, it is true that not everyone over the age of sixty-five can afford the average monthly cost for health insurance, but why must everyone be punished? The government attack on Medicare has been absolutely relentless and you have to wonder why?
As a result of the passage of this health insurance bill, many of the medical health care physicians who were treating those individuals on the current Medicare health care system are now refusing to see new patients and have already cut back on many of the Medicare patients they were currently seeing. Who is this suppose to help because it is evident who it is suppose to hurt.
