If you read anything this year hopefully before the November election, it should be the Affordable Health Care Bill. Yes, It will not be the most exciting reading, but if you choose to be informed, it is mandatory and shocking reading.
Look online to read these facts for yourself. This is taken from the website:
http://housedocs.house.gov/rules/health/111_ahcaa.pdf It is so important for people to read this document. Look on the pages listed as 1583 to 1686 with the title Payment of benefits in life independence account.This refers to funds that include non medical services and supports that the beneficiary needs to maintain the independence at home or other residential setting in the community.Don't stop reading yet! Continue to read the electronic management of funds. There will be debit cards that permit daily cash benefits. Institutional beneficiary benefits allow the person to retain 5 % of the beneficiary's daily or weekly cash benefit. There is much more to read!
If you or someone you know is receiving medicaid. the following is too important to go unread. Look to this document once again.
http://housedocs.house.gov/rules/health/111_ahcaa.pdf Then scroll down to the items discussed on 1588 labeled Social Security Act under state plan called PACE.The beneficiary (You) will retain an amount equal to 50 percent (50%) of the daily or weekly cash benefit.The remainder of the cash benefit will be applied toward the cost to the state providing such assistance. It is further mentioned that shall not be used to claim Federal matching funds under Medicaid. There is more to read when you enter the website stated above.This is too important not to read!
The secretary is mentioned to set standards in all the written material. As this secretary is carried into who sets the medical standards and and the determination, the secretary is again mentioned. The beneficiary (you) is evaluated every year. The secretary then compiles the data, checks the functional status of the beneficiary (You) and makes applicable changes.This sentence mentions the Secretary of the Treasury in coordination with the secretary so don't think the Secretary of the Treasury is the one labeled "Secretary" in all these clauses.It is a presumed guess by the author that that label secretary refers to the Secretary of Health and Human Services.You should read the entire few pages from 1589 to 1595 if you want to be well informed about your status and to answer your person questions.
CDC or the Center for Disease Control and prevention will be referred to as "Office". See the connection in the government links? The director will be in charge of women's health. Prevention programs, public and professional education, service delivery, training and treatment will be the office's responsibility.When reading this there are numerous references to other established sections so going back and forth to read for good understanding is a bit time consuming, but well worth the effort.Mental, health, substance abuse and other health points are addressed from 1614 to at least 1624.This could be a vital spot for all women to start reading.
It has to be mentioned here that the United States government has been in charge of the United States postal system and it is nearing bankruptcy. The United States Government has been in charge of the Social Security system since its inception and the government claims it is nearing collapse because the funds are depleted so low it cannot survive enough years to have all who have paid into it their money out. Over the course of 10 years or more the United States government has claimed to have "lost" trillions of dollars, bailed out sinking businesses that when given tax payer money have often left the country; like GM to China.Do you think the United States government can handle medical care in a good financial way? When the executive branch cannot even keep track of guns to Mexico, what makes Americans think they can trust the government to make medical decisions for millions of people?

Absorb it and discuss it with your congressman or congresswoman.In the video below some key senior points are made by doctors in the medical practice.
Very helpful list about this thought provoking topic. Great comments to think about on this list. H5
Those who are reading the over 2,000 page bill are finding more and more out. After all, you have to read it to find out what's in it...everyone except those who passed it. The government is too big to do this right. Anyone who has had to deal with a government agency will tell you about the run around. It takes months to get approved for anything. We tried to help my WWII vet dad get hearing aids and disability. The VA made us jump through hoops for 18 months before it was approved. Unfortunately my dad died a few days before we got the letter of approval. No to Government Health Care! Well done list.
informative list...but I have a mixed reaction. People think it is never a good idea to have someone who is not a doctor deciding on care...but if we are really honest, doctors are making as many financial decisions as they are medical decisions these days...so that is a two edged sword to me. H5
