    Other difference: In the first you are going to get more for less, in the second you are going to get less for a lot more!

    ^Three weeks ago, the rest home called to ask what funeral parlor my mom had lined up, as she was “going downhill fast”. Per her pre-arranged care, they took her off all her medications, except for pain, and O2 as she needed.

    Since taking her off all the meds, she’s sitting up again 6 hours a day, her edema is so reduced her feet are almost back to normal, her overall condition has IMPROVED, which at 101 years of age, things DO go “up and down”.

    While they’re still waiting expectantly for her passing, it may just be all that expensive medicine might have been the CAUSE of her decline???

    End of life care can be extremely expensive, my brother’s last three days after a major stroke ran into hundreds of thousands, paid for by his insurance, and Medicare. Other examples of extremely old folks on “extraordinary measures” , likewise increase cost tremendously, with NO POSITIVE PROGNOSIS POSSIBLE!

    It’s NOT a “death panel” but counseling folks on “end of life measures”, paid for by the ACA, makes perfect sense, as many elderly don’t understand their options, and are often put through additional suffering, with no benefit, except increasing “profit”.

    The Tea baggers love to scream death panels by the Government! Just what the heck do they think Health Insurers do? They deny Coverage for any reason, drop some clients before and after they are sick. They toss critically ill patients out after their plans reach “max coverage’s has been reached –Now that is a real Death Panel.

    Insurance companies currently use third party companies to “review claims”. A friend of mine owned a company in our same office building and revived a major health insurance companies claims They were only paid for CLAIMS THAT THEY DENIED- Guess what the ratio was for denials were in that office.

    That’s just plain silly. I’m an “elderly Citizen” as you call us. I’ve been on Medicare about a year and a half now, and my medical care has been wonderful. Indeed, I’ve had two annual “wellness exams” that have discovered and treated a couple of ongoing conditions. I had NO healthcare because I couldn’t afford it, for 4 years before I got to Medicare. And from what I understand, the covered wellness exams at no charge would have cost me more than I could have afforded had the ACA not been passed.

    Try not to get too crazy about fairy tale “Death Panels.”
