Obamacare docs ‘just say no’

Obamacare docs ‘just say no’

“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan. Period.” Repeated for more than three years by President Barack Obama,  this is a phrase nearly everyone in America now knows.

Obamacare, McKee, Cagle, Nov. 11, 2013

The problem is, for millions of Americans, it is not true. Millions of previously insured Americans have received cancellations from insurance companies. Doctor groups are not part of the exchanges.

And the problems are only getting worse — now you may not be able to keep your prescriptions.

“If you like your medicines, you may not be able to keep them under Obamacare,” health policy analyst Scott Gottlieb wrote in Forbes. “Health plans are cheapening their drug formularies — just like they cheapened their networks of doctors. That’s how they’re paying for the benefits that President Obama promised, everything from free contraception to a leveling of premiums between older (and typically costlier) beneficiaries, and younger consumers.”

The Affordable Care Act is one big ponzi scheme.

Doctors ‘just say no’

The system won’t work without doctors.

“An estimated seven out of every 10 physicians in deep-blue California are rebelling against the state’s Obamacare health insurance exchange and won’t participate, the head of the state’s largest medical association said,” the Washington Examiner recently reported.

“California offers one of the lowest government reimbursement rates in the country — 30 percent lower than federal Medicare payments,” the Examiner said. “And reimbursement rates for some procedures are even lower.”

Doctors can’t work for free. Many doctors run small businesses. “We need some recognition that we’re doing a service to the community,” California Medical Association President Dr. Richard Thorp told the Examiner. “And we can’t do it at a loss. No other business would do that.”

One California doctor said Medicare reimburses a return doctor office visit at $76 in San Diego, California. The Medicaid reimbursement is only $24. Medicaid is government health coverage for low-income and welfare recipients.

Covered California has been secretive about its plan reimbursement rates, and doctors now say rates will be close to the Medicaid reimbursements. Doctor networks cannot afford to work for a fraction of the cost.

Another ‘glitch’ — Phishing for personal data

IT experts are now warning the Healthcare.gov Obamacare computer system directs users to fraudulent health care websites.

Some Healthcare.gov users are reporting they were told their user password was incorrect, and then the website directed them to a “forgot password” page — which asked for highly personal information.

Politico reported The D.C. insurance exchange where thousands of Hill aides are shopping has confirmed that an outside scammer is redirecting customers to a fraudulent website.

“Some shoppers are being directed from the insurance website to an outside site that appears nearly identical to the real exchange, officials confirmed Friday,” Politico reported. “The fraud is widespread enough that they’re considering adding disclaimers to its website to warn users against divulging their check card or PIN numbers.”

“Yes, we have heard of it. There is definitely a phishing scam from an outside source,” said Richard Sorian, a spokesman for D.C. Health Link.

notice on the exchange’s website warns consumers against being “fooled by fake websites claiming to help you.”

How do you know if you are on a fake Obamacare exchange website? If it doesn’t crash.

    Lying and fraud has practically become a common business practice with this administration.

    Who would have thought 30 years ago that a President could lie through his teeth to pass major legislation that would have widespread and unprecedented impact on all of our citizens and get away with it?

    Did you read about his latest 2 fabrications, re: the revelations by Seymour Hersch (one of the last real MSM investigative reporters still alive in America) about the Obama administration ‘cherry-picking’ military intelligence about the use of lethal gasses Syria and, re: Obama’s illegal alien Uncle ‘Omar’ who testified under oath at his recent deportation hearing that our President lived with him in his apartment while Obama attended Harvard Law School after our President claimed he’d never met Uncle Omar before after Omar was arrested for a DUI in 2011? lol. So Obama’s uncle opened up his home to Obama when he needed it then Obama threw him under the bus 20 years later! lol.

    Oh, did you read that top US hospitals are refusing to accept ObamaCare patients, to include Cedar-Sinai in Los Angeles, Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC and MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston? lol. You’ll have to be one of the chosen elite or an Obama insider with an exemption to see a doc at one of those top-rated hospitals. lol.

    What a con-artist he turned out to be. I remember when he ran for office and claimed to be a champion for all the little people. lol. In the interim, he’s taken millions of “donations” from Wall Street, eroded the middle class to unprecedented levels, created a health care system that champions the rich and punishes the working middle class, loaded up the banks with trillions in taxpayer money and QE, bails out the public employees and leaves the private workers who fund the system twisting in the wind, etc…

    Boy, has he taken us for a ride, or what?

    Do any of you who voted for him publicly regret it today? Or does your pride preclude you from admitting it?

    “The system won’t work without doctors.”

    This is why phase two of Obamacare implementation will involve mandatory doctor participation. Doctors will be dragooned into the system whether they like it or not. The nature of Obamacare requires ever increasing amounts of force and coercion which will lead inevitably to what the leftist control freaks really want – a totalitarian Cuban style government healthcare system.

    No wonder our Supreme Leader had such a warm smile and enthusiastic handshake for his ideological soulmate, Raoul Castro.
