$10,000 in Medicaid Bills, Even with Insurance

Оценок: 304 | Просмотров: 2246
Even with private health insurance, Kim Leighton is still paying thousands of dollars for life-saving health care. Our system is broken. We need Medicare for all.

I've also had Type 1 since I was three. I live in Australia though and am taken care of. I feel for all Americans with this awful illness who aren't rich. We have so much to offer, but we can't work when we're dying on our feet. Go Bernie.

Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution states, “The Congress shall have Power to ... provide for the common Defense and general Welfare.” Healthcare is of upmost importance to all citizens so it should be provided to everyone in a system like Medicare for all. Health Insurance companies are a needless middleman which increases costs and so therefore should be abolished from the system. Hopefully common sense will prevail and the right decisions will be made.

Actually, she may have a choice. That is to stop running on glucose altogether. How? The ketogenic diet. High fat, low carb, moderate protein. Your body begins to burn ketones for energy, rather than glucose. Hence, little need for insulin.

I have Medicare AND private insurance. I still had to pay out over $11,000.00 for surgery. I guess it's my fault.

Roosevelt, Democrat, 1939, "Conservative Republicans seized on the word "social" and added an "ism," claiming that FDR was turning the nation toward socialism. .. Today, Social Security is so integrated into the fabric of American life that even conservatives defend it, just as they one day will defend national health care.

Yes and how funny for neoliberals and Republicans to explain WHY things should stay this way. They're literally responsible for murder (from wars AND this health care system) as far as I'm concerned.

Quit thinking that The Con Man Bernie will help because he never has helped anyone except his own family...This is just another Con he will pull off on America ...He has no plan as usual just more wishful thinking...If he was going to help he would have to get most of the leaders to agree on Medicare for all with a plan already drawn up to show America he is serious and cares...He knows that he can not talk to Trump or the Republican congress because he has ZERO PLAN to back up lies

From the UK. This maddens and infuriates me so much. My Mum had a bad leg a few weeks ago. Couldn't move it, agony. So I drove up to A&E (The ER). Got a Wheelchair (needed a £1 coin to unlock it) We booked her in, 20 minutes later a Doctor saw her, examined her leg. Made a phone call, booked her in for a scan and prescribed her some painkillers. Then I wheeled her over to that scan dept. Waited another hour and she went to have a scan, results may take a few days. She was given a whole box of injections to use to put in her leg. Net cost of all this. ZERO. We got the £1 back when I locked up the chair. She has an operation next week to put some metal plates in her fingers due to arthritis. Again, net cost is ZERO. I sincerely hope you all get universal healthcare that we have enjoyed for SEVENTY years. We were broke and in pieces as a country but we STILL gave everyone free healthcare at the point of need.

As a Canadian with Health care I can say that I have no idea what it's like to pay thousands for health. But I can say, that I think before America can make a change to a similar system you are going to have to get over this "Must eliminate Taxes" idea. Sure, no one likes to pay taxes..... but, it's life. From what I have learned about dems vs republicans, is that if you ever want a better way of life... republicans are not the answer. But this is something that I can imagine will take some time for America to evolve to. This can't happen overnight.

This should not be. Healthcare is a right and must be a human right. The alternative is that the rich will be healty and the poor will die. Every western nation manages to have healthcare. And if the culture of the USA shifted a little bit .. away from warrior veneration and military cult ... and towards social policies and altruism, your country could truly become great. .. Now .. it is just great in weapons and death machines .. and honestly, which country wants to be famous for bringing death.

Glad to see the views on Bernie videos are ticking up.
codingkriggs (17 дней назад)
Sure. But the majority of Americans by now know who Bernie is, and Kyle for all his youtube success can't claim anything near that. I'd just like for Bernie to have a baseline of at least 50k views on all his videos. Right now though, he gets maybe 2% of those subscribed to him looking at his videos (not saying that only official subscribers are viewing the videos). Youtube really isn't the same though. I had 5 digit views on many of my videos over 10 years ago (which I have since taken down). The ratio of number of videos on the site vs. number of visitors was much different back then. You could expect some minor fame just for posting anything at all. I have found some just amazing videos on youtube that have been there for over a year, with 1 registered view: presumably me. That means even the content creator didn't even watch their own thing. Point is, it may be too far past the gold rush for any new content creators to make their mark. I mean if even Bernie Sanders can only get 1K-2K views, on a channel that existed even during the heat of his primary run...

I'm still greatly disappointed with how low the view count is on most videos. They average like 1K-2K. Considering he is the most loved politician in the US in most polls. They seem to target facebook primarily though, I don't know what their impact is over there.

I feel the pain. I have a state job for the benefits but I don't make a living wage so I basicly pay 145 a month for insurance I don't use because I can't afford to go see a doctor or seek treatments I need. I'm going to drop my insurance at work i would rather have that 145$ a month so I can pay my bills and maybe eat something beside cheap crap.

Rights don't exist. It's a fiction we humans have created and have come to believe. The policies we implement should be kept when they do what they intend to do. If we're going to try a universal Healthcare plan without reducing government spending, the quality of care is going to be sub-par or we'll all be taxed so much other aspects of life will become even more difficult. If you're pro single payer, you should also be pro lean government. I don't think Bernie is thinking enough about that since any combination of words slightly reminiscent of "smaller government" is something that team red says. In our political climate that is a cardinal sin. Bernie's just a other politician whose salary depends of tax dollars. Beware transactional politics.

Once we have Single Payer/Medicare For All, then those greedy 'for profit' insurance companies will be forced to compete against the actual real cost of healthcare instead of their greedy profit oriented prices. Too bad so sad that they'll have to lower their greedy profits while having to provide higher quality care and service for those who choose to buy it from them instead of using the Public Option of Medicare For All. I'm sure someone will cry bitter tears for those poor greedy Billionaire CEO's. SPREAD THE WORD! BE SURE AND HAVE THIS CONVERSATION WITH YOUR FAMILY, YOUR FRIENDS AND YOUR CO-WORKERS.

Exactly! The same will go for healthcare.  Once public clinics and hospitals pop up to help care for all the people who will now be able to actually get care, they will force the private sector to lower their costs to compete!  THIS is what will get healthcare costs under control!

Living in a country with universal healthcare, I'm amazed why some of you oppose medicare for all??? I read people's comments and the general objection is that they don't want to pay someone else's medical bills. Why in the world wouldn't you want that other people pay YOUR BILLS??? You rather pay expencive insurance yourself and enrich the insurance companies? Why?? That is so stupid!! I don't even have a health insurance BECAUSE I DON'T NEED ONE!! Some say they don't want to "pay other people's medical bills" because "they themselves have never been sick or never will"... Well, you just keep saying that to yourself.... I'm happy for you, that you'll NEVER have any accidents, get cancer, diabetes, heart attack, brain tumor or just simply break your arm or leg. In my country some people do get those. And it's hard as it is. Fortunately we don't have to stress how we're going to pay the hospital bills. But it seems you want that. Well, what ever gets you trough the day... I think it's stupid, but what do I know.

The solution to the American medical problem is to give all Americans ,is to mirror the American veterans health care system to all citizens. We as veterans don’t pay for any medical health care except for medication which is $8.00 per script that ‘s any medication and step up the veterans health care system. If it’s good enough for our veterans and soldiers it should be good enough for all Americans,provided by the government from our tax dollars for millions of veterans in America. This statement is a fact that every American citizen adult or child will pay $5,000 - $25,000 or more per year no matter your race or religion to the health care insurance companies,hospitals and the pharmaceutical companies. If a individual wants more or specialized health care that’s your choice after your basics needs are met. The choice is yours folks and should not be the health cares choice who decides for you now....Remember Americans and America first..
