Hmmm..NPR is normally pro Democrap, whatever the cause, now it seems they have found that the Obamanation/Pelosi nighmare hand in your pocket, has those same people we got "change" at gunpoint to help, looking for ways to survive, and they are punishing the same people they pretended to help. Maybe the sheeple need to question these good deals before they cheer them on...
All the pro-Ocare folk I know are just beginning to get it and that is only because the unthinkable (for them at least) is that it is affecting them. Isn't it astounding that so many otherwise intelligent people actually thought life would go on as usual?
At the end of 2015 my medicare carrier left the state and I had to sign up with a new carrier. At the end of of December, I got a coupon book to send in $1.40 a month on my penalty. Apparently that penalty is supposed to follow me the rest of my life. At $1.40 a month, they have already deducted the next 3+ years. And I am back to the appeal process.
I believe Highway (Clint Eastwood) from Heartbreak Ridge (1986) had a term specifically for what you are going through.
for a thousand dollars' worth of meds in 2015. . we

Don't know if you are eligible but:
What was really weird was I put in " US insurance company that sells policies that pay for (non-emergency) treatment overseas" in google and 1 page come up, but this thread was on the bottom, first time I have ever seen a GG thread in a google search...
No help there.
Would it not make some sense for a company to reduce costs on non-emergency treatment? Medical care in some overseas locations is 50% to 80% less than in the US and the care is comparable. Including the cost of transportation and recovery in a local apartment there is still substantial savings. Wonder if there are regulations that prevent it or if the market is just too small?
I pay 40% on average of what you pay for medicine for the same or better quality and I pay about 30% for pharmaceuticals.
Same stuff your getting.
the only real difference is liability protection and the cost of lawyers and courts.
My obobo carless weapon, however is the good ole VA in which I only have a yearly check up...wouldn't dream about bothering them about much more than that.
I still can't find a plan or organization that would help if I broke a leg or somethin...Most are too expensive for what I might need. until then I best watch where I walk...
Check the alternatives it's like checking faulty premises.
Mercy First Care clinics are far less expensive than emergency rooms for another option..
OK the rest of you. Chip in with some ideas. Patient for students in a Medical school?
As for pain...don't do drugs...can't, my body does not tolerate them.
