    HOW ILLEGAL GET HEALTHCARE

    Illegal aliens, here in Nevada, are able to obtain healthcare subsidized by Nevada tax payers through Access to Healthcare Network. Same as what Obama say he will not give them, the Nevada tax payer gives them. Access to Healthcare Network provides them with medical, dental and vision at a discount.

    Nevada Drug Card, government subsidized, provides prescription to them at a discount.

    Nevada Drug Card
    Access to Healthcare Network



    Government healthcare will not work. Private healthcare is not working. But private HC do not cover every one and government HC will. Is we do not pass a healthcare plan that covers every American, it will be the America’s biggest tragedy ever.

    We're spending over 17% of our GDP on healthcare and that number continues to climb. That is unsustainable. Wanna talk tragedy?

    I don't see where the drug card program is government run or funded.

    If you click on the link at the bottom of the page, you get this:

    And the website (Nevada Drug Card) is by these people:

    United Networks of America Networks of America is one of the largest providers of value added managed care products and services in the United States. UNA has more than 240,000 participating Providers serving more than 39.7 million members. Last year we saved our members an estimated $687,850,000.

    In other words, a rip-off. But doesn't appear to be a government program.

    It's confusing. And obviously set up to take advantage of people.

    I don't know for sure; maybe there is some state subsidy there, but I don't see anything but a private company trying to make a buck.

    i understand that it's confusing, but i think that is at least in part because of people who say things they know are untrue...

    yet they keep repeating them.

    I meant the website was confusing. I can see how people would be thinking they're getting some sort of insurance card or state assistance. But down there at the bottom, in little bitty letters:

    Copyright 2005 - 2009

    United Networks of America

    THIS PLAN IS NOT INSURANCE


    And if you google it, there seems to be one for every state... same website for each (different name, of course).

    ah... ok. sorry. i thought you meant the issue of health care... which IS confusing in it's own right.

    I see what you mean about the site, though.

    But it's sad to see so much disinformation around.
