Health care law changing behavior
Great!! How does that reduce the 454 billion in debt service payments?
WASHINGTON More than 2.65 million Medicare recipients have saved more than $1.5 billion on their prescriptions this year, a $569-per-person average, while premiums have remained stable, the government plans to announce today.
That's because of the provision of the health care law that put a 50% discount on prescription drugs in the "doughnut hole," the gap between traditional and catastrophic coverage in the drug benefit, also known as Part D.
And, as of the end of November, more than 24 million people, or about half of those with traditional Medicare, have gone in for a free annual physical or other screening exam since the rules changed this year because of the health care law.
It doesn't, but once we lay off all the contractors in the military our debt will drop.
Werent those contractors providing a service that costs less then what the military could do for themselves, or was it the volunteer force that cant produce the numbers for proper logistics?
Yep, I agree. The wait to see a doctor will surpass the waits in other countries.
Do you know what a search engine is?
