Constitutional Revivalists, since before Obamacare was even passed, have been warning of the many dangers embedded within the Obamacare law. First, it was rammed through by the Democrats using fraudulant "procudural rules," and then it was declared "constitutional" by the Supreme Court in a decision which first changed the law as written (maintaining that the law's "fines" were actually "taxes") and (after saying "fines" were "taxes") Chief Justice Roberts then changed the Constitution itself by approving a "taxing" law that originated in the Senate (where Obamacare DID originate) when the Constitution VERY SPECIFICALLY allows taxing laws to originate IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ONLY!
The almost-3000-page law has now grown to some 40,000 pages (and it's growing by the day) as Sebelius' HHS adds regulations at a feverish pace. This page provides a central location to access information on the devastations being visited on Americans by this Marxist takeover.

Love Song of AARP and Obama

...page 4 of the 71 pages of emails to see this entry ~ a July 29, 2009 message:

Sent: Wednesday, July 29, 2009 12:14 PM
Subject: Tuesday's HCR (Health Care Reform) Contact Activity Update
-
Very High Volume
Tuesday's HCR contact volume set new highs across the board.
The total contacts handled was 4,702.

The breakout was:
Request for more information: 492
Oppose HCR: 4,174
Support HCR: 36

In addition, as of 1Oam today, there are over 800 emails that need responses.
Key points for HCR phone contacts on July 28:
• High volumes, nearly double the previous day, and nearly as many as all of last week.
• The share of callers opposed to HCR jumped again, to 89%
• The share of callers supporting HCR fell sharply, to 0.8%

Key themes heard from callers:
• Opposition to President Obama's participation in AARP's Town Hall
• Care rationing for seniors and "end of life" counseling as a euphemism for euthanasia
• Perceived partisanship on AARP's part

See page 4 of the 71 pages of emails to see the July 29, 2009 message that shows how adamently seniors communicated to AARP their very strong opposition to Obamacare (as well as their reasons), and scrolling through the other email messages reveals AARP's frantic work to ignore members' opposition and, instead, promote Obama's propoganda.

Wall Street Journal online: 9/20/2012 Thanks to just-released emails from the House Energy and Commerce Committee, we now know that AARP worked through 2009-10 as an extension of a Democrat White House, toiling daily to pass a health bill that slashes $716 billion from Medicare, strips seniors of choice, and sets the stage for rationing. We know that despite AARP's awareness that its seniors overwhelmingly opposed the bill, the "nonpartisan membership organization" chose to serve the president's agenda. The 71 pages of emails show an AARP management taking orders from the White House, scripting the president's talking points, working to keep its board "in line," and pledging fealty to "the cause."

Seniors deserve to know all this, as AARP seeks to present itself as neutral...

ObamaCare PREVENTS Care for Medicare Recipients Beginning October 1, 2012, $715 billion (almost three quarters of a TRILLION dollars) will be “saved” from Medicare and moved to ObamaCare by eliminating “fraud, waste and abuse.”
 

Hospital fines are being spun by the administration, the administration-supporting media and AARP as "stiff fines for poor patient care" ~ Continue reading to get the FACTS
If you are 65 years old or older, if you have a parent or other family member who is 65 years old or older, this is EXTREMELY important information from Keiser’s newsletter, from the Wall Street Journal and from other sources. Top-rated US hospitals (Mayo Clinic, Massachusetts General, Beth Israel, St. Luke’s and others) speak out:
EVERYONE on Medicare will find it more difficult to find hospital care if you have been in a hospital and then need to go back to the hospital for the same or different issue within 30 days. According to the Obama Administration $715 billion (almost three quarters of a TRILLION dollars) can be “saved” from Medicare and moved to ObamaCare by eliminating “fraud, waste and abuse.”

Despite the administration’s and the administration-controlled media’s spin, this program is NOT about improving patient care…It IS about denying care to Medicare recipients.

Beginning October 1, 2012, the “fraud, waste and abuse” of readmitting to a hospital, any Medicare patient within 30 days of discharge FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER, will cause the hospital who readmits that patient to lose a percentage of Medicare payments owed to that hospital. One of every five Medicare patients is readmitted within 30 days of discharge: A cardiac patient may go home and fall ten days later and break his/her hip; a cardiac patient may go home and, because of the seriousness of his/her condition, experiences another heart attack in 20 days and readmitting him/her allows for additional treatment that results in providing the patient with several more years with his/her family; a woman has a stroke and after going home contracts West Nile virus. Under the Obama Administration’s health care law, each of the described instances will result in the hospital being penalized by losing a percentage of the Medicare payments owed to that hospital. (TfHIS article was written in 2012. See what's happening in 2014 HERE)

“But CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) makes the rules, and hospitals will have to abide by them — even more so in the future, because Medicare's penalties will increase to 2 percent in 2014 and 3 percent in 2015.” These percentages sound small, but the dollar amount is calculated to be a MINIMUM of $100,000 for smaller hospitals and millions of dollars for larger hospitals.

And if hospitals will “have to abide by them,” will they allow doctors to readmit patients or will they tell the doctors to give them a pill and send them home?

Readmissions also are only one measurement of quality, said Dr. Raymond Durkin, chief of cardiology at St. Luke's. He noted that the network is a top performer in terms of heart failure mortality, so St. Luke's may have had more readmissions, but in the ultimate measurement, life or death, it performs well.

“[Medicare] needs to remember that people are not cars,” Curt Schroder, head of the Delaware Valley Healthcare Council, told English. “They seem to be treating hospitals like auto repair shops. In other words, ‘You should be able to change the tire, send them on their way and not see them for another 5,000 miles.’”

Mayo Clinic’s Health System in Fairmont was the highest [in Minnesota] at 0.81 percent. Sanford Medical Center in Worthington and Fairview Ridges Hospital in Burnsville both face penalties of 0.43 percent.
Mayo is concerned about any unnecessary readmission, said
Kevin Burns, regional director of public affairs for Mayo.
“Every patient deserves the best possible care, the very best comprensive (sic) treatment regardless of our cost to provide that treatment,” he said. …

Beth Israel, like several other hospitals with high readmission rates, also has unusually low mortality rates for its patients, which he says may reflect that the hospital does a good job at swiftly getting ailing patients back and preventing deaths READ MORE

Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, which U.S. News last month ranked as the best hospital in the country , will lose 0.5 percent of its Medicare payments because of its readmission rates READ MORE

Medicare Denies Payment for Hospital and Rehab Care Published February 06, 2014
 

Who's an "in-patient" at the hospital and has bills paid and who's "under observation" and has bills denied? Learn the difference BEFORE you're faced with tousands, even TENS of thousands of dollars in denied medical bills!

When she was 95, Ruth Felton fell late one night at home and was taken by ambulance to the emergency room, where doctors found she'd broken her pelvis in three places.
The doctors told her daughter that after leaving the hospital, Felton "would have to go to rehab and learn to walk again and learn to function again." That would mean a skilled nursing facility, which is expensive. But, if she "stayed three full nights," they were told that was the criteria for having Medicare pay for the rehab.
There's a nasty catch, however-- many people in the hospital are not officially considered "in-patients" but rather "under observation" although the difference is not obvious.

The government hires contractors -- which some call bounty hunters -- to go out and challenge Medicare claims going as far back as three years. There were 600,000 cases across the country just last year alone. These claims are held up in the appeal process for two-and-a-half years. There's over $1.5 billion that's tied up right now as hospitals are appealing these denials. (Read the analysis of ObamaCare limiting Medicare payments HERE)

YOU OR A FAMILY MEMBER MUST INSIST ON "IN-PATIENT" ADMITTANCE. Ask to see the chart, admittance papers, whatever it takes to verify the "in-patient" versus "under-observation" status. more

What's Next? Introducing "CoffeeCare"!!
 

Health insurance, car insurance, and. . .coffee insurance?

 

For example, is “health insurance” really health insurance, or has it become a pre-payment plan? Not everyone with car insurance will get into an accident, but nearly everyone with health insurance gets sick. We would never expect our car insurance to cover our fuel costs and oil changes, since most of us understand it is only there to cover catastrophic events. Yet many of us have this kind of expectation every time we see the doctor.

Seniors lose insurance and doctors under Obamacare
 

“They took all the senior citizens and threw us out of the plan [Medicare Advantage with no premium]. They now want to give us the same plan for $153 [per month],” ...one of many Medicare beneficiaries now learning that — like Americans who buy insurance on the individual market — they are losing their insurance, and in some cases their doctors, under Obamacare.

Private insurance companies that cover patients with government funds under the Medicare Advantage program have quietly started to dump doctors and patients because of Obamacare budget cuts.

[He] would also pay more for prescription drugs under the new plan. The co-pay for a three-month supply of one of his medications increases next year from $7.50 to $54.00. more TOP OF PAGE
