President Obama is trying to resell healthcare once more. The election coming up in November 2010 will be important. President Obama knows this. Maybe that’s why he’s trying to resell healthcare again.
President Obama made an appearance in Falls Church Virginia. Obama has said some healthcare benefits have kicked in for many Americans already. The healthcare law President Obama signed six months ago is set to start today. The patients bill of rights ensures patients get what they’re paying for.
One requirement is that children under age twenty-six stay on their parents healthcare policy. Co-payments are no longer charged for preventive care. No denial of coverage for children with preexisting conditions. Tax credits for business covering employees. Seniors receive rebate checks for prescription drugs.
President Obama is having difficulty selling the healthcare plan to Americans. Could it be President Obama didn’t state his case clearly? It’s possible because when the law was passed many Americans didn’t know much about the law.
Insurance companies are not lowering premiums. Instead premiums are rising and the cost of healthcare is rising. When you ask insurance companies why the premiums are rising they blame the healthcare law. Americans want to know when the healthcare reform law will help them. The healthcare law will not help many Americans until 2014 because most laws don’t go into affect until then.
I asked one American about his thoughts on the healthcare reform law and here’s what he said. “It’s a tax raising free healthcare for some. Insurance and doctors are too wrapped up in it. When it’s all said and done the working class will be footing more of the bill. In order to bring down healthcare costs is to go after the health insurance companies.”
One thing Americans don’t like about the new health care law is their right to choose healthcare. Instead the government will choose for them.
What Does The New Healthcare Plan Consist Of
. For children with pre-existing conditions there will be no denial of health coverage.
. Children remain on their parents health insurance until age twenty-six.
. No lifetime policy limits.
. Children will be eligible to receive free immunization shots.
. Preventive care will now be free of charge.
. Insurance companies won’t be able to practice revision.
. Rights to appeal denial of a claim.
. No prior approval for emergency room visits outside of providers plan.
The healthcare law will take affect when your employers plan comes up for renewal.
The health care plan seems too good to be true. For many Americans it’s too good to be true and some feel the impact already.
Why the Healthcare Plan Is Bad
. Provisions taking place could cost healthcare to rise nineteen percent.
. Lifetime cap could increase by twenty two percent.
. Healthcare companies no longer offer child only policies.
. Employers will ask workers to pay more toward their insurance.
What does American really think about the new healthcare plan? Guess we will have to wait and see.
