Do You Know How To Deal With Long-term Care Under Obamacare?
We face some dire changes in the world of health care. I want to share with you what to do to insulate yourself against the effects of Obamacare. I’m going to explain the Achilles Heel of Obamacare and why preparing for long-term care should be your top health care priority right now. Originally, we were told Obamacare would solve our long-term care problems. Then – in the shadows of the night – Congress passed and Barack Obama signed a complete repeal of the provisions in Obamacare intended to help families with long-term care.
The message from Washington is clear: You are on your own.
They don’t want to help and they have gone back on their pledge to help with long-term care.
In addition, Obamacare slashed funding to Medicare, a program passed with bipartisan support to help the elderly secure medical insurance. That’s bad news for all Medicare participants.
Congress has proposed many changes to the program, the worst of which is lower reimbursements to doctors for their services. This means more everyday care will be administered by nurses and practitioners – not doctors.
Look, Medicare reimbursements are already shamefully low. They barely cover doctor’s costs.
If payments are cut further, doctors could actually lose money when they treat some Medicare patients.
The next logical step is that doctors will refuse to treat Medicare patients at all.
I don’t mean to scare you. I know you’re probably already afraid of losing coverage or struggling to find participating physicians.
But this isn’t even the worst crisis of Obamacare.
Within the next year, practically all of the elements of Obamacare will have taken effect.
