Seattle Hospital Sues After Obamacare Cuts Children’s Access

Comments Off on Seattle Hospital Sues After Obamacare Cuts Children’s Access

Seattle Children’s Hospital filed suit against Washington State’s Office of the Insurance Commissioner this week, after Obamacare implementation caused the hospital to be cut from four of the six insurance plans offered by the Washington Health Benefit Exchange.

As millions lose their insurance nation wide and are forced into plans with significantly higher premiums, the reality of rationed care, initially denied by adamant supporters of the bill, has now hit the country’s most vulnerable, with doctors at Seattle Children’s Hospital speaking out.

“There becomes a point when if you start denying access to care, that you can hurt children and children’s health and that’s what we believe is at risk here,” Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer Dr. Sandy Melzer said.

Although the hospital was included in almost every health plan from the state’s commercial market originally, Group Health Cooperative and Community Health Plan of Washington will now be the only providers including Seattle Children’s. According to the lawsuit filed in King County Superior Court, the legal obligation to provide access to “essential community providers” has been breached.

Those enrolled in one of the five insurance plans that excludes Seattle Children’s who still want the hospital’s care will likely be forced to pay much higher cost-sharing amounts, an impossibility to the almost 50 million American’s attempting to rise above the poverty line.

“The notion that a major insurance plan is going to exclude us from their network is truly precedent-setting and represents a new level of degradation in children’s access to care,” Melzer told the Seattle Times.

Local resident Anne Guadagno is afraid her two young granddaughters will lose their favorite doctor like many others already have, despite President Obama’s promise that everyone would be able to keep their doctors.

“I would want my grandchildren to have the doctor they’ve become accustomed to and are comfortable with. A child that’s been with a certain doctor and nurse and an office needs to stay there,” Guadagno told King 5 News.

With a healthcare website only able to sign up 6 people in its first day, “inevitable” healthcare rationing, millions more set to lose their current insurance and an impending shortage of doctors, the future of the Affordable Care Act appears to be anything but affordable for millions of children and adults alike.

Surprise! Half of all Medicaid recipients in Illinois are not eligible

Comments Off on Surprise! Half of all Medicaid recipients in Illinois are not eligible

 

You know what we need?  A massive expansion of the supremely wasteful and fraud-fraught boondoggle that is Medicaid. Oh, wait. Obamacare’s already giving us that.

We can expect to see a lot more of what’s happening in Illinois, where half of all Medicaid recipients are ineligible for the program.

from KMOV:

The early findings of an ongoing review of the Illinois Medicaid program revealed that half the people enrolled weren’t even eligible.
The state insisted it’s not that bad but Medicaid is on the federal government’s own list of programs at high risk of waste and abuse.
Now, a review of the Illinois Medicaid program confirms massive waste and fraud.
A review was ordered more than a year ago— because of concerns about waste and abuse. So far, the state says reviewers have examined roughly 712-thousand people enrolled in Medicaid, and found that 357-thousand, or about half of them shouldn’t have received benefits. After further review, the state decided that the percentage of people who didn’t qualify was actually about one out of four.
“It says that we’ve had a system that is dysfunctional. Once people got on the rolls, there wasn’t the will or the means to get them off,” said Senator Bill Haines of Alton.

Obama “Changed Names” of Benghazi Survivors, Hiding Them From Congress

Comments Off on Obama “Changed Names” of Benghazi Survivors, Hiding Them From Congress

A new report has come forward that Obama has changed the names of Benghazi victims to keep them from being interviewed by congress. This is yet another illegal action in the cover up dealing with Benghazi. The response shouldn’t just be impeachment. These are crimes worthy of jail time.

This new information is coming from a representative with intimate information on the matter, even though his story is being drowned out by the other scandal reported by CNN that there were dozens of CIA agents on the ground during Benghazi.

The Blaze reports:

The Obama administration is “changing names” of the Benghazi survivors and “creating aliases” to keep them hidden from congressional investigators and the American people, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) told Greta Van Susteren on Thursday night. He also said the administration is “dispersing them around the country” to keep them out of sight.

Gowdy’s stunning claims were overshadowed by CNN’s bombshell report that revealed there were “dozens” of CIA operatives on the ground in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, the night of the deadly attack that killed four Americans. Meanwhile, the CIA is taking “unprecedented” to keep whatever it was doing in Benghazi a secret, according to the report.

“Stop and think what things are most calculated to get at the truth? Talk to people with first-hand knowledge. What creates the appearance and perhaps the reality of a cover-up? Not letting us talk with people who have the most amount of information, dispersing them around the country and changing their names,” Gowdy said.
