    TWENTY EIGHT CENT TOO MUCH

    Medicare works until. If you make .28 cent over the amount to qualify for assistance from Medicaid, you will have to pay a premium for a Medicare Advantage plan, a $10 co-pay for doctor visits, $40 for specialist, $100 premium for Medicare deducted for you social security, 30% of hospital bills and $50 ER visits and I don;’t know how much for MIRs, CATscans and lab test. Still this is better than private HC coverage and no coverage at all. And some seniors opt out for Medicare because of the $100 deducted.

    For someone who makes 28 cent too much, hundreds fo dollars make them choose between living and not living. What is the suicide rate among senior citizens? This does not make much difference for a person who makes hundreds of dollars too much. There are people who have medicare and still cannot afford to use it.

    When it comes down to our a-- or his a--, Obama (and congress) opts to save his own.

    Interesting.

    What amount must one make (plus 28 cents) does one have to make before these charges are applied?

    Just wondering.
