either we go the extra yard and help all those who sincerely needs help getting the healthcare, which this guy clearly does, or we stop helping the
"poor" who are really pretty much sorted thru and picked over when it comes to who deserves to recieve the healthcare...the gov't should be treating
us equally, and not deciding who should live and who should die!!
and if we do the latter, well, there will some medical providers hurting really bad, since according to one of my congressmen, well....something like
70% of the revenue that these places are getting is coming from the gov't programs!!!
WE shouldn't be paying this much!! Expecially if we are making so little money that that $3000 is close to a third of our take home income, and it is
in my case!!!
for the op...
there is these medical credit cards like MedKey (do a search, you can find it), I have a medkey card, since my medical conglomerate wants the bills
taken off their books in 90 days or less and will throw them to the credit collection agency if they aren't. I just tell them to throw them to
medkey, who well, I just had the hernia operation done (it was either that or quit working!! Don't care, if the work isn't paying enough that I can't
get the care I need to take care of the problems the work creates, I am done with it!!) The medkey more than likely will cover what my insurance
doesn't for the operation...I'll end up paying more in the long run....it draws interest, but well, my credit stays intact and there's no bill
collectors calling for me to harass....
I'd check and see if you have that option...or maybe the hospital will be nice and just hold the debt on the books and set up an easy payment plan of
$3 of month...
but again, WE should not have to be paying that much, the only reason it is that much is that we the taxpayers are footing the tab for about 70% of
the revenues coming into the the medical sector, and it's only helping those that the gov't is deeming "worthy" to recieve the aide, with a few really
well paid people adding to it...
take the "poor" and elderly, disabled out of the picture, we wouldn't need half as many doctors, nurses, or hospitals as we have, and well, we would
see those prices drop like a rock!
