    You only get surgery until your insurance coverage flatlines.

    It’s funny because it’s true.

    Actually, you can’t toss somebody to the curb because their insurance is non-existant. Although, the expense comes out of someone else, be it the hospital or the taxpayers.

    Bet me ! Here in Florida, I know of two cases of friends of mine who were "released " from the hospital with serious heart problems because the hospital found out that they had no insurance. One died in the parking lot – True Story !

    too true and not so funny.

    Ooo! An Obamacare strip! I like it!

    Wanna know what we’ve got coming? Look to the UK’s NHS where they put seniors on a terminal plan and folks die of dehydration from neglect in the hospital.

    Or look at the FEMA response to Sandy. LOL I think it’s comical that folks want to entrust your health care to the same folks who run Amtrak and the Post Office.

    If you want free health care just hop in a boat and come to Australia like all the refugees.

    I, too, was released from no less a hospital than Penn State University – Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, PA without proper treatment because I had no insurance.
    I was also misdiagnosed by that hospital with another condition rather than a heart attack. My mom has had both conditions, and she knows what I had was not what they diagnosed for me, but instead, a heart attack.

    Actually, Orion, it’s the opposite. With Obamacare, your insurance cannot flatline like Wiley suggests. However, before the Affordable Care Act, an insurance company was able to put limits on your coverage.

    I think that’s part of the fine print on my HMO

    Put it to bed, Orion. It’s late and your ranting is tired.

    In 1999, I was showing symptoms of seizures and my doctor asked for an EEG to check whether I was epileptic. The (&$& private sector insurance bureaucrats turned down the the request for the test on the grounds that the cost of the procedure wasn’t justifiable. Not long after, I had a seizure while driving, hit and killed a pedestrian, was arrested, lost my job and my home and narrowly avoided going to prison for vehicular homicide. All because some damnable private sector bureaucrat had to get his stockholders another 1/10th cent per share on their dividents and give the CEO a bigger bonus. That’s why I hate private insurance.

    The GOP rants about death panels. We already have them, they are called insurance companies.

    My doc prescribed a med for me that required prior authorization from the insurance company two months ago….I am still waiting for it. Apparently they have nurses employed with them that review each case and ask if other treatments have been tried before deciding to give the okay. Sad, sad, sad. (I don’t see it getting any better because Obama did not enact health care, he enacted mandatory health insurance. Guess who still pulls the purse strings?)
