"Increased Competition?" Perhaps the Administration did not notice that Anthem, Aetna, Humana, and Cigna will be just Anthem and Aetna next year. And projected rate increases in may states are as much as 25%-45%!

#healthcare   #Obamacare  
The Obama administration said on Thursday that many consumers were benefiting from increased competition among insurers under the Affordable Care Act.

Transgender Healthcare Issues

I wonder if Bruce (Sorry...I guess he's not Bruce any more) Jenner's OBGYN visits will be paid by his insurer. Or how about a prostate exam for a woman?

Eventually, these issues will be resolved, although it may take a year.

#Transgender  
Advocates say that enrollees get turned down for coverage of some services that are tied to gender.

URGENT!!  Urgent care that is. If you visit the Urgent care anytime soon (not the ER), make sure the facility is in-network. It could easily mean the difference of paying $350 vs. $150.

The negotiated network discounts are typically very large. If it means driving an extra few miles to go to a different facility, tuneless it's a life-threatening situation,  drive the extra miles.

#healthcare     #Urgentcare  
Many urgent care centers say they take your insurance. But that’s not the same thing as participating in the plan. It could mean you will get a big bill down the road.

Aetna Is Buying Humana. What's Next?

If you're an employee of either company, especially Humana,  hopefully you have job security. Unquestionably, consolidation will cost jobs, although the number will not be in the tens of thousands.

Less products will be available, and rates will continue to increase. But with a stronger network, it's possible the #Aetna negotiated repricing will help reduce further increases.

Humana grandfathered plans may be eliminated. This is a significant change if you have an old #Humana plan issued before April of 2010. Instead of being able to keep an inexpensive policy without maternity, mental illness, and other benefits you originally didn't want, you may be forced to accept these benefits.
#healthcarechanges  

We'll know more by mid-2016.
Aetna is the latest health insurer bulking up on government business as the industry adjusts to the federal health care overhaul.

Actually, we have an old Aetna grandfathered plan. Glad Aetna/Humana purchase wasn't reversed, or our premium may have increased from $480 per month to about $1,200 per month!

Legality of Same-Sex Marriage will boost health insurance enrollment. Verizon and other major companies will now allow employees to get coverage must easier.

But guess what? Since marriage qualifies as a "Special Enrollment," if you missed Open Enrollment, and you marry your same-sex partner...Voila! You can enroll for Obamacare any time of the year.

#samesexmarriage   #healthcare  
By marrying partners with employer health plans, people in same-sex relationships are more likely to gain coverage.

Healthcare Prediction:

Aetna buys Humana for $37 billion.
Anthem buys Cigna for $54 billion.

What's next? Here are three bold predictions:

Google buys UnitedHealthcare for $64 billion and requires all employees to never use Bing or Yahoo again.

Uber buys Kaiser for $37 billion and installs a five-minute health insurance enrollment button on the dashboard of all vehicles.

Costco buys Highmark for $19 billion and cancels all policyholders with the first name "Sam."

I am sure the government will allow this consumer unfriendly deals.  Yes limit the consumer more so that we all have less choice.    As a recent purchaser of health insurance via the exchange I can assure you that the insurance companies are making money and that the consumer is being screwed.  My Deductable for the family is $12,000 and it is a crap plan!  I used to live my BC/BS until the friggin government told me what I needed.

How important is it to pick the best surgeon? Well...It might save your life. Maybe some money too.

The difference between the best and worst surgeons is dramatic. This free website may come in handy.

Healthcare Tip:

It's time for your colonoscopy. Lovely. But more than likely, you'll get a clean bill of health and you won't have to do it again for another 5-10 years.

Since it is preventative, your health insurance will pay 100% of the cost. Right? Of course. Case closed.

Well...There is one minor detail. What about the yucky disgusting, repulsive, nauseating, sickening, revolting bowel-cleansing goo you need to take the night before?

Although many plans also include this expense in "preventative" benefits, it's not required by the ACA legislation to be included since it is considered an "ancillary service."

So beware. They may not be cheap in case you have to pay for it. But look on the bright side. They taste good. Yea, right.

I stopped there today for the first time and ordered a Gyro. Meat was tender and tasty and onions were done just right. My wife enjoyed the potato salad as well. And I met Mr. Scruffy himself! I will certainly be back.

Very good meal last night. The Chicken Marsala had a very good taste and the chicken was tender. The mashed potatoes were a bit bland and I wish roasted potatos were an option. Price is as expected and service was very good.

Fresh as always and soup seemed home-made instead of canned. It was crowded but line moved fast. Not 5-star food, but good lunch option.
