More Truth About ObamaCare

From a reader...
"I had one of the most troubling, most disturbing conversations ever
with Julie's sister-in-law, Dr. Suzanne Allen, head of emergency
services at the Johnson City Medical Center in Tennessee. We were
discussing the "future" and I asked her had she seen an affects of
Obama Care in her work?

"Oh, yes. We are seeing cutbacks throughout the services we
provide. For example, we are now having to deal with patients who
would normally receive dialysis can no longer be accepted. In the
past, there was always automatic approval under Medicare for anyone
who needed dialysis -- not anymore." So, what will be their
outcome? "They will die soon without dialysis," she stated.

What about other services? She indicated as of 2013 (after the
election), no one over 75 will be given major medical procedures
unless approved by locally administered Ethics Panels. These
Panels will determine whether a patient receives medical treatment
or not. While details on specific operating procedures and
schedules, Dr. Allen points out that most life-threatening
emergencies do not occur during normal hospital business hours, and
if there are emergencies that depend to be resolve within minutes
or just few hours, the likely hood of getting these Panels approval
in time to save a life are going to be very challenging and
difficult, if not impossible she said.

This applies to major operations such as receiving stents, bypass
surgery, kidney operations, or treating for an aneurysm that would
be normally covered under Medicare today. In other words, if you
needed a life-saving operation, Medicare will not provide coverage
anymore after 2013 if you are 75 or over. When in 2013? "We
haven't been given a specific date -- could be in January or
July..but it's after the election."

This is shocking to any of us who will be 75 this year. Her advice
-- get healthy and stay healthy. We do not know the specifics of
the actual implementation of the full Obama Care policies and
procedures -- "they haven't filtered down to the local level yet. 

But we are already seeing severe cuts in what we provide to the
elderly -- we refused dialysis to an individual who was 78 just the
other day..we refused to give stents to a gentleman who was in his
late 80s." Every day, she said, we are seeing these cutbacks aimed
at reducing care across the board for anyone who is over 75.

We can only hope that ObamaCare will be overturned by the Supreme
Court -- otherwise, this is a death sentence to those who are over
75..perhaps you should pass this on to your friends who are
thinking of voting for Obama this year.

Regardless if you have private health care coverage now (I have
Aetna Medicare Part B) -- it will no longer apply after 2013 if the
Ethics Panels disapprove of a procedure that may save your life.
Scary, scary, scary. Think about this? You? Your parents? Your
loved ones?

Didn't know about it? Of course, not. As Nancy Pelosi
said..'well, if you want to know what's in the bill, you'll have to
read it..' After it was passed."
