    On tuesday last wk I was offered a date for my knee replacement, It was a 10 day wait, due to a lot of other probs we then set October14th to get it done.

    Due to the unusual probs with my leg the consultation on tuesday was a "second opinion" with a new consultant, his findings (they took new xrays ect) were the same.

    Do American Insurance companies pay for a second opinion?

    It is your right under the NHS

    Were these all just consultations or were any actual surgery dates?

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Well? Why do you fall for this propoganda? Are you really so gullible?

    What Obama says, is that eventually employer based coverage may be eliminated. This may be news to you but that is what McCain advocated and it is not the same as planning for a single-payer system

    You call it propoganda and I call it putting 1 and 1 together.

    -Obama pushs for a national health care option.

    -Obama has said himself he wants a single payer plan and that is his goal.

    -Obama says the collapse of private insurance may take many years.

    What does McCain have to do with this? I didnt vote for him either.

    Re: How satisfied are you with your health insurance provider?

    I have Blue Cross/Blue Shield and I have never had a real issue with them. I also opted for a PPO plan instead of an HMO plan because I like to control my health care decisions as best I can.

    Once they wanted to get a little snippy with me about a procedure I wanted to have done. When I made it clear that I would go to another doctor who would prescribe possibly lifetime expensive medication for dealing with the emotional ramifications of what I saw as a mutilation of my body not being fixed, they caved and paid for the procedure. You just have to speak their language.

    I have Blue Cross / Shield, PPO. I pay for it myself. I'm fine with them. If I have a major illness I'm covered for five million lifetime; few thousand out of pocket. $140 a month.

    Yes.

    No he has not.

    No, he says the "elimination of employer coverage may not happen immediately". That is a big difference. Lots of people would like employer based coverage to fade away. McCain is just one. There is a thread in the health care section on alternatives to the Obama plan which feature the elimination of employer based coverage.

    He says here he is a "single payer proponent" or advocate.

    They paid for my colonoscopy, they must be pretty OK.

    This is exactly why I'm not entirely against government-provided insurance... but having the Federal Government do it is blatantly unconstitutional. It should be up to the states to decide how they want health care run. The Federal Government could possibly subsidize them a little bit, but not do anything beyond that.
