I never once mentioned hospital in my message.
The local hospital here has a tradition.. come in with a cold, go out
with a toe tag.
Great place to be treated for a knifing, shooting, or overdose.
This was not an emergency.
This was not life threatening.
But it needed to be taken care of in less than two weeks time.
She was in a car accident and complaining of neck problems, right? Your
solution was to put her in a car and drive for several hours, because you
(with all of your knowledge as a medical professional) determined that it
would be better not to risk taking her to an emergency room. What did I
Well, I guess I'm lost. Why did you post that you were "so much for USA
medicine"? Leaving us the impression you could not get medical care for
your daughter after an accident? Were you slightly misleading us
One incident does not prove or disprove the reality of medical treatment.
Doctors in regular practice don't keep open time just in case someone wants
to walk in the next day. You did get to see someone and if an emergency,
you could have gone to the ER. In the case of an auto accident, usually
an ambulance can be called at the scene.
My wife has a heart condition. When needed, she can see a doctor in
minutes. Non emergency can take days and is no big deal.
That has nothing to do with the fact that death panels were not
mentioned in the bills. Republicans brought them up to discredit the bill.
Nonetheless, what makes you think the US is different than other
countries? Insurance companies already decide what procedures they will
pay for and whom their patients on a particular plan may see. And people
without health coverage don't less care. And when they visit an
emergency department, they don't get primary care.
Unless there is unlimited coverage, people won't get unlimited care.
Not mentioned in the bills?? How stupid jeffy is? Or believable
naivety by so called dr(?) jeffy. Which is it jeffy? Your mom and pop
happy you will be weaning off of their health insurance till you are a
ripe old age of 26? I bet their premiums will rise because of you.
You are wrong again, my Health Insurance provider Keystone Senior Blue,
allows me to visit ANY Doctor or Specialist I choose that accepts Medicare
If anyone requires major surgery as a result of the Emergency Room diagnoses
it is provided, whether they are insured or not. That's the law, ask you
doctor for the truth, WBMA.
A local "Doctors Hospital" and all of its doctor partners, that opened in
1999, has never accepted Medicare reimbursement, because they did not want
to subject to the provisions of the Hill-Burton act.
You might note that some pharmacies are no longer accepting Medicare
reimbursements because of the new law. Walgreens is the latest one to
Good point. More accurately, there are over 50 Medicaid programs. Each
state has a different one. Walgreens is not accepting new patients in
Washinton state. Patients already using Walgreens will be able to
continue to use Walgreens, as well as patients in other states.
The reason Walgreens gave is that the state reimburses less than the
cost of the drugs for 95% of the drugs. In other words, 19 out of 20
times, they lose money selling Medicaid drugs to patients.
