Concerns about cancer centers under health law
« on: March 19, 2014, 04:34:27 AM »
"Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."  -  President Donald J Trump

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
...They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security

Got Obamacare?  No cancer treatment for you.  Harry Reid says this is all just a myth so don't worry.  Everyone knows cancer patients lie.

This could have something to do with it.

Americans who sign up for Obamacare will be getting a big surprise if they expect to access premium health care that may have been previously covered under their personal policies. Most of the top hospitals will accept insurance from just one or two companies operating under Obamacare, Watchdog.org reports. The organization looked at the top 18 hospitals nationwide as ranked by U.S. News and World Report for 2013-2014, contacting each hospital to determine their contracts and talking to several insurance companies as well. Here's what they found (for more details, read Top Hospitals Opt Out of Obamacare).

Rank*   Hospital   Insurance Accepted**
1   Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore   All insurance companies, per state law
2   Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston   All insurance companies, per state law
3   Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.   Blue Cross (silver plan only)
4   Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio   Medical Mutual of Ohio
5   UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles   Anthem Blue Cross, Health Net
6   Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago   Land of Lincoln, Blue Cross
7   New York-Presbyterian University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell   UnitedHealthCare, EmblemHealth, Aetna
8   UCSF Medical Center, San Francisco   Anthem Blue Cross
9   Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston   All insurance companies, per state law
10   University of Pittsburgh Medical Center   Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, UPMC Health Plan, Health America
11   Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia   Aetna Independence, Blue Cross
12   Duke University Medical Center, Durham, N.C.   Coventry Health Care, Blue Cross
13   Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles   Health Net
14   NYU Langone Medical Center, New York   UnitedHealthCare, Affinity Health System, Fidelis Care

Corrected on : Corrected 11/1/13: No. 16-ranked Indiana University Health Academic Health Center accepts insurance from MDWise, not Indiana University Health Plans, as stated in an earlier version of this article.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Well, hey, they've lived long enough anyway (by government standards).

Here is the first Obamacare clinic in Chicago.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
