CASH ONLY FOR HEALTHCARE. Doctor Lee Hieb on Stossel yesterday suggested that we need cash only healthcare. Will she take a chicken if you don’t have cash? How can most people that live pay check to pay check pay cash for healthcare. $40 used to be the going cash price for a routine office visit. Then a lab test, a prescription, a medical procedure, medical supply. If is impossible for a doctor to practice cash only medical care without Government assistance payments. $40 a visit would not began to pay for office space and it still would not eliminate paper work. She said she has 5 people just to do paper work? She is Obama bashing extreme. Americans cannot afford to pay cash for medical care and doctor cannot afford to provide medical on a cash only basis . Case on point: I had a bladder infection that cost me two urgent care visits, one office visit, one ER visit, four antibiotics ending with a 10 day infusion of an antibiotic. All this over a six week period. Paying cash for this would be an impossibility for any middle class worker. Americans are have trouble paying premiums, co-payments, deductions required with their private healthcare plan. That not affordable healthcare. That criminal. Doctors are charging Medical and Medicaid as much as $ 350 for a routine 10 minute office visit. If cash only for medical care was so cost effective why aren’t the wealthy dropping their healthcare plans and congress opting out of their Government healthcare plan for cash only medical care plan. Did Cheney pay cash for his heart transplant? Oh, yes the doctor say we should only have medical coverage for major illnesses. WTF?. Now she want us to pay cash and them pay a premium for a plan that provide long term major illness. Am I missing something? Obamacare is cost effective affordable healthcare if we just gave it a chance. If is was called Romneycare instead of Obamacare it would be acceptable. Dr. Lee Hieb could not practice medicine on a cash only basis. So shut the fuck up and go on taking private healthcare plans that pay more than Obamacare for a routine office visit. By the way her plans is call the three “C's” Cash, charity catastrophic healthcare. Wake the f*** up lady. Stossel have you dropped your private healthcare plan and offer your doctor, it you can find one, cash only for healthcare? I didn't think so. How many doctors would practice medicine on a cash only basic? LMAO The major reason docotors oppose Obamacare is because it would not pay $350 for a routine office visit.
