ObamaCare Takes Full Force in Next 18 Months, Americans Scrambling to Prepare

Barring any new amendments, the massive new healthcare law dubbed “ObamaCare” is set to take full force in the next 12 to 18 months.

Most Americans don’t understand the new law and aren’t ready for its sweeping changes. These changes will impact everyone, seniors, small business, the employed, the unemployed, doctors, and medical professionals.

As a matter of fact, ObamaCare’s numerous provisions will soon alter:

  • The cost of health insurance, medical treatment, and prescription drugs . . .
  • The type and quality of healthcare available in the near future . . .
  • Even the ability to get in to see a doctor (any healthcare provider, for that matter) . . .

In fact, ObamaCare adds more than 30 million Americans to the healthcare rolls.

The program will be a massive tidal wave and experts say it may even cause doctor and nurse shortages.

And one study found that up to 40% of doctors are leaving practices due to the punitive regulations under ObamaCare.

This could result in health-threatening delays just to visit a doctor, as well as potentially substandard treatment. Plus, seniors in particular can expect alarming cuts to their Medicare benefits.

That’s because ObamaCare literally robs Peter to pay Paul by cutting $716 billion from Medicare over the next decade to fund other services under Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

Worse, the law puts Medicaid on parity with Medicare, a fact that will likely weaken Medicare!

Given the election results, Americans are now seeking to prepare for these changes. Those who don’t could be hit very hard.

Right now, millions of Americans are desperately scrambling for answers as the new rules and regulations of ObamaCare begin to take hold.

ObamaCare could degrade the quality of your healthcare if you are not prepared.

H/T to Pepp for the article.

These effects are coming just as predicted, and seemingly right on schedule from the master planners. I do get a little weary of the Left acting as if these are just little hiccups and accidents that can be straightened out… like how they ironed it out originally.

There are those net affects of stealing from Medicare to fund it coming to full bloom. Oh remember how they denied that one? That was at the very same time they blamed the GOP for trying to cut Medicare. All the ObamaCare sound bites — lies as we call them.

Getting and being prepared? Well, that is a little hard for most people given the scope of this. In any other reality this might give birth to the largest class-action lawsuit in history. Barring that, what change will we see brought about?

It’s doubtful they will want to fix anything until we feel the full affects from it. The Obama minions would cry ‘that is hypothetical like the death panels’. So when the naysayers of ObamaCare end up being right, who cares to point it out and correct the record? Think of all the people who were demonized for opposing ObamaCare.

PPACA: built on a mountain of lies that keeps on growing. Politicos always say “next election.” We’ve had 4 elections about this monstrosity but it’s gotten worse, not better.

Access denied: cancer care on chopping block

Nation’s elite cancer hospitals off-limits under Obamacare

By Associated Press – March 19, 2014 | NY Post

WASHINGTON — Cancer patients relieved that they can get insurance coverage because of the new health care law may be disappointed to learn that some of the nation’s best cancer hospitals are off-limits.

An Associated Press survey found examples coast to coast. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is excluded by five out of eight insurers in Washington state’s insurance exchange. MD Anderson Cancer Center says it’s in less than half of the plans in the Houston area. Memorial Sloan-Kettering is included by two of nine insurers in New York City and has out-of-network agreements with two more.

Doctors and administrators say they’re concerned. So are some state insurance regulators.

“This is a marked deterioration of access to the premier cancer centers for people who are signing up for these plans,”  said Dan Mendelson, CEO market research firm Avalere Health.

It is getting very interesting, as those three thousand pages start to speak.

Syrians get medical treatment in Israel

Syrians brave risks to seek treatment in Israel

NAHARIYA, Israel (AP) — It looks like a standard scene in the corner of the children’s intensive care unit at a hospital in this northern Israeli town. The counter is jammed with stuffed animals, and balloons shaped like princesses float against the ceiling. A nervous, silent father hovers over his injured daughter.
But he and the girl are Syrians, spirited across the border by the Israeli military for medical treatment unavailable amid the civil war at home. He is silent because he cannot speak Hebrew, nervous because his presence in Israel, Syria’s long-time enemy, could place his family in danger if his trip is discovered.
He came to the hospital six days ago, following after his daughter. He refuses to say how he arrived, and hospital staff step in quickly to deflect questions about the journey. He has no contact with his family at home. All of this, he says, is worth it.
“For my daughter, I’m willing to do anything,” said the father, who, like his 12-year-old daughter, could not be named because he fears repercussions in Syria. While he was grateful for high-quality medical care, he was visibly afraid of the potential consequences of his trip, speaking in one-word answers and keeping his eyes lowered. He checked footage filmed by an AP Television News crew to make sure his daughter’s face was obscured.
On both sides of the Syrian civil war, militant groups like Hezbollah and fighters linked to al-Qaida are virulently opposed to Israel’s existence. The Syrian regime itself is a longtime Israeli enemy, and its citizens are banned from travel there, facing possible jail time if they are discovered. The two countries have fought two wars, and Israel has annexed the Golan Heights, a plateau it captured from Syria in 1967. President Bashar Assad and his late father Hafez, the former Syrian ruler, have used their anti-Israeli stance as a source of legitimacy and have hosted and funded anti-Israeli militants. Generations of Syrians have grown up under propaganda vilifying the Jewish state.
All of this means that the father’s presence in Israel could mean trouble for his family back home from any number of groups. Those fears, said Dr. Zonis Zeev, the head of the children’s ICU at Western Galilee Medical Center in the city of Nahiriya, are often the hardest for the patients to overcome.
