Still being new to blogging I want to try something here. Not sure if there will be sufficient interest or not or how it will go, but I’m going to at least give it a try.
Today, before his campaign took it back, Mitt Romney stated what he would keep from Obamacare. Specifically the pre-existing conditions. Well, now that more people have experienced some provisions of the Affordable Care Act, more people seem to be liking it and though they still hate “ObamaCare” they like most if not all of the provisions.
At the bottom is a “Leave A Reply” Box. Add your comment about what you like about ObamaCare and forward this to your friends. Let’s see what people like and send a message (at least to those who view this blog) about what is liked about the Affordable Care Act.
I’ll start. Being someone who suffer from Type 1 Diabetes for the past 41 years and still being too young for Medicare, I like the provision preventing insurance companies from excluding me from coverage and elimination of the lifetime caps.
I have more, but I want to hear from you.
Please participate. Be patient if your reply isn’t immediately posted. I have to allow the post and I’m not always near a computer that allows me to authorize the reply.
No one should lose everything they’ve spent a lifetime building and working for because they become sick or injured.
Exactly, remember the fighting in Congress to merely fund the First Responders for the life threatening conditions they developed from breathing the contaminated air while going in to save anyone who might had survived and then to recover the dead. That should have never been a topic for discussion in Congress, they and all of us should be guaranteed healthcare benefits without caps for all time, especially those who risk their lives for all of us.
I like Obamacare because it closes the donut hole for seniors on Med Part D and extends Medicares solvency another 8 years without cutting any services
I have very personal reasons for loving Obamacare. My 22 year old daughter was born with a single kidney and has chronic hypertension. This alone would make it nearly impossible for her to get insurance due to a pre-existing condition. Last year, she was diagnosed with Dystonia and Narcolepsy w/Cataplexy – 2 rare and chronic conditions. Due to these conditions, she was unable to continue with college and can’t work. Without Obamacare, she would no longer be covered under my employer-sponsored medical plan. Now, she’s covered until she turns 26. At that point, she will likely be able to get a plan of her own, without having to worry about the pre-existing exclusion, and will not have to be concerned with lifetime limits! She takes 8 Rx medications – the single sleep medication alone would cost nearly $5,000 a month without insurance coverage. Many people suffer with these conditions. 1 of every 3,000 people in the US have narcolepsy, an estimated 500,000 people have Dystonia. There is no cure for either condition – they can be managed by medication, at a cost! God bless President Obama and Rep. Nancy Pelosi for finally getting this done!! There is no reason that people who contract chronic or rare conditions through no fault of their own should have to suffer or face bankruptcy for medical care and life-saving medication.
Thank you for this story. This is the information that needs to get out that many don’t understand or want to acknowledge exists.
My grandchildren will be able to remain on thier parents health care until they are finished college. That is nothing but GREAT
