See...I dont get that....in Michigan, you go to the dr., tests, xrays, an MRI, specialists, have surgeries, rehab etc....just make and go to the appt.....no waiting.

And its based on household income. Even though I have investments, musical royalties, Social Security and 401 and 405 retirement plans...Medicaid for myself and wife would be based based on income of a household of 2.

Years ago, I paid nothing for any of the above, no waiting lists, no co-pays on scripts....zip. I had Medicaid and Blue Cross Complete. I still have Blue Cross....but am not on social services, we both work, dont collect my social security or retirements...just my EMT city wages and some musical royalties each quarter for musical record sales worldwide.

And I know some folks now...who are on MIHealth/Medicaid and its still the same for them...not waiting once you get your card......Illinois sounds wacky....

It sounds like a bunch of people were added by Obamacare, and there aren't enough doctors to see everyone in a timely manner. To be fair you would have to compare how many people died before the expansion from lack of treatment and see which number is bigger.

They said that 40,000 people a year were dying in the US from lack of healthcare before Obamacare, by the way, so I would guess that more people died before in Illinois.


Illinois Obama.Care policies are not the same as Illinois Medicaid policies.
