    That's nice for you. If the entire nation had experienced that, it would have saved us quite a lot of money.

    Unfortunately, your health situation is... shall we say.... not exactly representative. You win out with community rating. Its' just the rest of the community who loses. Which is why for the populace as a whole, prices spiked up.

    I thought I was going to Kaiser not investors business daily.
    Well I hope one day with counseling you will be able to put your disappointment behind you?

    Which, I think, in my more cynical moments, is precisely what it was designed to do.

    I've had a couple of bumps in my care. They were worse when nobody knew what was going on. They have begun to even out though. And I really use the system. Tomorrow I get to go to my heart transplant center I'm in the congestive heart failure part now though.

    Limbaugh made that argument. I'm truly not sure if this bill was willful or if it's the typical arrogant incompetence of lawmakers. Either way, the entire health sector is further being screwed by the people who messed it up to begin with.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Most people I know got a reduction or a check back

    Nah I've known for a while that you do that and it has become to be expected.

    You're a good dude, I hope things work out for you. Heart failure, COPD, and cancer were the three highest cost items when I sold, basically due to the chronic nature of the ailments. The biggest problem is that we have regulations from the early 1900s that have less to do with quality of care and more to do with market controls, these resulted in physician and nursing shortages leading to care cost increases, which eventually spilled down to "insurance reform" in the 70s, at that point the economics of scale started to catch up and this is where the real medical inflation took off. The big problem is that instead of addressing costs, the latest bill forces more risk into the pools, I want people who need coverage to have it don't get me wrong but we've got to get care costs down by keeping only the most important regs in place.

    Yes. And nobody that Pauline Kael knew voted for Nixon. Anecdotes do not alter the reality, which is that Obamacare caused premiums to increase the rate at which they were going up.

    Nah I've known for a while that you do that and it has become to be expected.
    dude. It was a link. If I was trying to hide the source, I wouldn't have linked it.

    I'm very fortunate that I get to go to one of the most successful transplant centers in the country. The Hospital has something like 5 or 6 Nobel Laureates on staff. But even still my blood tests tomorrow will cost in the 'hood of 1k. I have these every three months that alone is 3k per year. Not counting other costs and the other blood test I take every 2 weeks. It really adds up!

    No doubt, cardiovascular care is very complex and very expensive, one of the reasons that any blips in that category were killers for potential H.I. clients. I had more trouble with Cardio, any history of cancer, or C.O.P.D. with underwriting than anything.

    I hate critics and never read them. And as far as Obamacare it is to early to determine IMHO. The exchanges are not even open yet

    No, you typed in Kaiser and linked the word.
