    Thanks to the new Health Care Bill
    Medicare is not paying our Dr.'s the amount that they should be getting.
    First off you now get semi- annual bill records. Really good! now fraud will not be reported right away,you don't get your bill till 5 months later.
    What my Husband had done in Feb. and March of this year, we just received what was paid to his Dr.
    In Feb. he had an appointment for blood work. the Office visit was 25.00 and the blood work was 10.00. A total of 35.00. Medicare paid the Dr. 5.89.
    No Dr. can afford this. This is why they will not take Medicare or Medicaid. Our Seniors are totally screwed.
    That you very much Dem's and Obama. :evil:

    Not to worry, the libs will look at this as an opportunity to take failing minority students, place them in college ahead of non-minority students that actually worked for grades in school, pad their grades, then graduate them as doctors.
    Of course over time those untrained and uneducated minority doctors will demand equal pay to their competent counterparts, so the cost will go back up.

    They knew what they were doing too, and now the assholes want to say the Republicans are pushing grandma over the cliff.. seniors will be working hard to get the truth out this year. There's a reason they stole 960 billion dollars from medicare.

    I thought the whole health care bill cost 960 billion. Which we can't afford to begin with.
    They took 500 billion from Medicare.
    The yearly premiums rose by 30 to 50 dollars depending what ones you have and we have shitty payments like this to our Doctors.
    This monster has to be repealed.

    the monster doesn't have to be replaced, what needs to be done is to have the government get out of the way, and at the same time reduce payoffs for malpractice.
    FDA needs to get out of the way of drug manufacturers and let them do what they know how to do.

    As always, the government causes something, then complains about the outcome and blames others, then jumps in again to fix it and in the process screws it up even more.

    You watch, you are going to end up fighting for benefits with some crack whore turned medical evaluations specialist. God help you if she is a racist of the same level as obama and you happen to be white. This whole scam is nothing more than another minority give away.

    They didn't pay the full amount for many things before the health care bill. ;)

    They paid more that half of it last year (19.95) and the year before that they paid a little over 23.89
    But is was still enough for the Dr's. to take some of the hit on it.
    This is outrageous.
    Making excuses for this shitty bill is not going to cut it.
    Remember you all are going to get this when you reach retirement age.
