Kay Hagan lies echo Obama lies, Obamacare impact on consumer spending health care costs and quality, Part 1, Obama lies on keeping your insurance and reducing premiums

“The cost of health insurance will climb from a range of $61 to $77 monthly to a range of $118 to $133 monthly, according to a memo sent from UNC President Tom Ross to the UNC Board of Governors. On an annual basis, most students will pay about $500 to $700 more in 2012-13, depending on the campus.”

“Mallette said the insurance increases are due to the health care usage of UNC system students during the past couple of years, plus federal regulations on preventive care and pharmacy services issued in March. The process is complicated, he said, by the new provisions of the Affordable Care Act.”…Charlotte Observer May 1, 2012

“If you like your plan, you can keep it.”…Barack Obama

“millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.”…NBC News October 29, 2013

 

I was preparing an article on the impact of Obamacare on consumer spending.

Before beginning to write the article, the material expanded so much as to require a multi part series.

So many lies, so little time to expose.

Living in NC, and as sick of the non stop political ads as anyone, I still find my jaw dropping every time I hear the Hagan ad accuse Tillis of Medicare cuts.

Kay Hagan helped Obama pass Obamacare.

Money that had previously gone to Medicare Advantage Plans has been redirected to Obamacare.

From the Daily Caller February 2, 2014.

By Rep. Bill Johnson, Congressman, Ohio 6th District

“One of the most troubling aspects of President Obama’s takeover of health care is the more than $200 billion in cuts that Obamacare is taking from the Medicare Advantage (MA) program – a program that over 15 million seniors and individuals with disabilities have chosen to enroll in across the United States. As of January 2014, Ohio had over 763,797 enrollees in the MA program and roughly 38,766 of those enrollees reside in Eastern and Southeastern Ohio. This administration must stop these cuts to the MA program from happening if they want to protect the well-being of seniors across the country.

Last year, Medicare Advantage beneficiaries learned of a 6.7 percent rate cut that would hit their health care plans in 2014. These cuts are already being felt by seniors as access to doctors becomes more limited, and out-of-pocket payments increase. I recently experienced firsthand what these cuts mean for those living in Ohio when a number of local physicians had their practices dropped from participation in MA plans, forcing seniors to switch plans or leave their long-term physicians.

Doctors throughout my district have expressed their deep concerns over the serious impact these cuts will have on their practices, and their patients. Seniors in Eastern and Southeastern Ohio are losing access to their doctors and seeing an increase in their premiums. Some patients are being forced to leave their doctors mid-treatment. This is unacceptable, especially when 9 out of 10 beneficiaries believe their MA plan helps them live a healthier life.”

“And yet, this month, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is planning to issue a second MA rate cut for 2015, slashing an additional 6.5 percent from these senior plans. In addition to this, seniors enrolled in MA could see between $420 and $900 in benefit reductions next year. Those seniors, who have not yet experienced the disruptions of the first cut, are sure to with the second – MA plans will soon face a total rate cut of 13 percent.”

Obamacare in Pictures 2014: Medicare cuts

You may recall Heritage experts’ warning that Obamacare would cut $716 billion from Medicare. That’s still happening.

Despite the Obama administration’s recent walking back of Medicare Advantage cuts for this year, Obamacare’s planned cuts to Medicare are moving forward. This chart shows which parts of Medicare are affected.”

From the Herald Sun September 26, 2014.

“Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina will drop its Blue Medicare HMO standard and Blue Medicare HMO Enhanced plan products in 11 North Carolina counties in 2015, affecting 50,000 beneficiaries statewide.

The counties include: Alamance, Davidson, Forsyth, Iredell, Rowan, Stokes, Surry, Wake, Wilkes and Yadkin, which makes up about one-third of BCBSNC’s Medicare Advantage population, said Michelle Douglas, public relations manager for BCBSNC.

Under HMO plans, beneficiaries generally must get care from within the plan’s network as opposed to PPO plans, which contracts with a network of preferred providers to which the beneficiary can choose.

Mary Snider, a BCBSNC customer who lives in Davidson County, said she received a letter this week that said her Blue Medicare HMO enhanced coverage would no longer be available.

According to the letter, if Snider does not take action before Dec. 31 on selecting a new plan, she will lose prescription drug coverage and only have Original Medicare beginning Jan. 1.

“This is a shock to everybody,” Snider said. “We wish they still offered (the old plans.)”

Snider said her monthly premium for Blue Medicare HMO Enhanced was $18.90 per month, which is confirmed by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) data.

The BCBSNC letter does not outline the new plan offerings or specifics because they are not made public until Oct. 1.
However, according to CMS data that shows approved plan premiums for 2015, the only available HMO plan with drug coverage from BCBSNC in Davidson County is set to increase by just over three times Snider’s current premium, to $63.50 per month.

“There are some people out here who choose between health care and food,” she said about potential price increases. “If you’re caught in the middle, there’s nothing you can do.””

  1. From the Washington Post January 25, 2014.

    “Doctors cut from Medicare Advantage networks struggle with what to tell patients”

    “Thousands of primary-care doctors and specialists across the country have been terminated from privately run Medicare Advantage plans, sparking a battle between doctors who say patient care is being threatened and insurers that insist they have to reduce costs and streamline their operations.”

    “Insurers say they must shrink their physician networks because they face billions of dollars in government-payment cuts over the next decade — reductions that are being used partly to fund insurance coverage for millions of people under the federal Affordable Care Act. They also say the smaller networks will allow them to curb premium increases and to remain nimble as they prepare for an influx of patients under the law.

    Medicare Advantage, an alternative to traditional Medicare, covers 13 million beneficiaries, or 27 percent of the people in the federal health-care program for the elderly. Besides providing the standard benefits, the thousands of Medicare Advantage plans often offer extra perks such as free eyeglasses and adhesive bandages. They can do that because, for years, the government has paid the plans more, per patient, than it spends on regular Medicare.”

    ““It is an outrage. I have patients in their 80s and 90s who have been with me 20 years, and I’m having to tell them that their insurer won’t pay for them to see me anymore. The worst thing is I can’t even tell them why,” Vogelman said.”

  2. From Zero Hedge November 16, 2013.
    “Nation’s Largest Healthcare Provider Cuts Thousands Of Doctors; Blames Government”

    “UnitedHealth, the nation’s largest provider of privately managed Medicare Advantage plans, has dropped thousands of doctors from its networks in recent weeks citing “substantial funding pressure from the federal government.” The WSJ reports that physician groups are protesting as many elderly patients are now unsure about whether they need to switch plans to keep seeing their doctors. Doctors in at least 10 states have received termination letters, some citing “significant changes and pressures in the health-care environment.” UnitedHealth said its provider networks are always changing and that it expects its Medicare Advantage network “to be 85% to 90% of its current size by the end of 2014,” due to the new health law (Obamacare). More job creation?””

    Up until a week ago I too was a BCBS member. I have decided to bail out. There is pathetically little to choose from now. So after a little consideration I felt that if I am going to get a screw job,at least it will be for FREE. I signed up with United HC,and I will have no premium to pay,and I will still get most of the services,offerred by BC. The OUT OF POCKET has increased somewhat,but I still get virtually all the same or slightly increased CO PAYS. I use continuous blood pressure meds and some pain meds PRN. I am fortunate that I use nothing else. I am sorry to hear what is happening in NC with BCBS. ……but I knew that the PPO thing was going to come to a screeching halt. It is all going to get lots worse before it ever begins to improve. Find a big piece of white oak to bite on when things start getting HAIREY!

  5. CW……..OT
    We have a Lutheran HEALTHCARE SYSTEM here in Fort Wayne, which last year started opening some sattelite free clinics. These are specifically designed to get as many people as possible out of using the ERs for healthcare treatments. The free clinics are using a mix of physicians, most of whom are first year GPs,and a lot of them have names that sure as hell are NOT IRISH………more like “RAJANAKI” and the like. I guess you will see where this is going……..to hell in a handbasket. ……..We’ll probably be roughing it before the year is out anyway. I visited our local Kroger store a couple of days ago,and noticed some changes there as well. There is a growing number of canned items from China,Mexico,etc. You really have to be careful with fresh produce grown in Mexico. Always wash it well, before use. Celery especially! All Kroger meat is now pre butchered and packed. The people in the meat department havn’t the slightest idea what a ribroast is. The quality of their meat is really sad. Up until a few years ago I could buy any cut of meat I wanted, and the butcher cut it the way I wanted it cut. That is HISTORY!
    Recently I sent my wife over to Lowe’s to buy some finish nails for me. The moron who she asked NEVER HEARD OF FINISH NAILS! When she told me this I couldn’t believe what she was telling me. I sent my son over later and he had a hell of a time even finding the finish nails. He said they had them stacked so high up in the rack that had he not happened to look upward he would never have found them. While he was there he went into the lumber area to take a look for some SYP#2 yellow pine 2x6s. All he could find was some dried out PRETZELS which they were trying to pass off for #2 2x6s. He told the clerk he could find straighter wood in the yard behind his house……..of course it would have to be cut down first.!

  9. YOU CAN’T TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS……

    The article Ginger posted at 7:04pm last night had this within:

    ” Another KEY player here is a cryptic carrier known as Phoenix Air. We know this air carrier has been responsible for transporting Ebola victims, but that’s all the American people are being told. How safe is Phoenix Air and what kind of relationship does it have with the U.S. government? This much seems clear: Phoenix Air is more than just a medical transport unit. It appears to have significant DOD contracts”

    As I see it, Phoenix Air is a carbon copy of Air America that operated all during the Vietnam war…..and most likely has the same mission statements for the public…….but their operations are hush-hush.

    During the Vietnam war, I had several contacts with Air America and their so called “flyboys”…..they dressed as civilians and wore a jungle “boonie hat” and sunglasses, even at night, and had their “six-shooter” strapped low like Wyatt Earp…..I’m sure these jokers with Phoenix are doing the same.

    There were strong indications that Air America was running drugs out of Cambodia and Laos into Vietnam,,,,, no one ever dared to question though.
    They were kind of funny looking characters (keystone kops) running around in a war zone as if it were a scene in a sad movie..

    I have little doubt in my mind that both PHEONIX AIR and AIR AMERICA are CIA in nature…..spooks always work in the same MO….always.

    And don’t ever expect to be told anything about their missions or operations…if you get anything, it will be a lie.

    Now all we need is for the CIA to get involved in shuttling EBOLA infected people all over the world…..

  10. RMINNC…….
    The shades are the giveaway of DRUG HEADS. I learned years ago that when a person wears shades INDOORS he has been stoned on drugs at some point during the previous 24 hours. It always effects vision. A company that was managed by a lifelong friend stated that at one point in late 1999 he personally fired 17 production workers, who thought that they fooled everybody. They had them cold, thanks to the cooperation from our local Sheriff’s dept.,in the unexpected appearance of their (peewee) mobile. There was NO ESCAPE.
    So I would conclude that there is a possibility that the mysterious AIR SERVICE personell are themselves indulging in drug use.If FAA gets ahold of it goodbye flying licensesure…….that is if any of them are licensed to begin with!

  11. LEAST WE FORGET…..

    As was rightly said by General MacArthur:
    …….” However horrible the incidents of war may be, the soldier who is called upon to offer and to give his life for his country is the noblest development of mankind”.
    A Commander-in-Chief, or any politician, who turns our veterans into fallen soldiers to perish homeless on the streets of the very country they fought to defend, should never be allowed to lay a meaningless wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
    How can you honor the dead, when you now insult the living?

    A widow of WW2 “unknown soldier”, has said:
    “The monuments are built so that the politicians can put some flowers once a year and have their photos taken. If you really care for our fallen heroes, then do something to thank them: love your country, put up a fight for our veterans and protect the gift of freedom they have given us.”
    taken in part from canadafreepress.com
    —————————————————————————————————
    In My Personal Opinion;
    A wreath laid at ANY monument honoring our fallen soldiers should be laid there ONLY by another soldier or service member…..IF YOU HAVEN’T BEEN THERE…IF YOU HAVEN’T SUFFERED THE HORRORS OF WAR….IF YOU HAVE MADE A SACRIFICE OF SWEAT, BLOOD, AND TEARS…..IF YOU HAVEN’T WITNESSED THE DISTRUCTION WAR BRINGS……then you have not earned the honor of recognizing those who have BEEN THERE and have met those challenges. Freedom isn’t free… and the soldier above all knows this.

    In 10 days, America will again celebrate Veterans Day….please stand up for America and make arrangements to attend a ceremony honoring those who have given so much that we may all be free.

    I will make a brief reminder post every day from now until the 11th of November here at our favorite gathering site; Citizenwells……now, just as much as any other war period America has been involved in, we should pay our deepest respects and honor this binding debt of gratitude we pay to the soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen who are serving and have served so faithfully.

    America could not have risen to the heights she has without their sacrifices and those of whom have gone on before.

    God Bless America and God Bless the servicemen and women who have, and still defend her..

    Always remember in November…those who have fallen.

  12. OLDSAILOR82….

    You are right….I saw many of those “hollywood cowboys” hopped up on something, most of them smelled of alcohol all the time…..they were crazy, stupid, and totally irresponsible…I had as little contact with them as possible…but sometimes however, ….it was unavoidable.

  13. CW………
    …….while I don’t know what you think regarding the Marine at the TIJUANA JILHOUSE, I personally find it apalling that he was suddenly released even without any conclusion from the alleged trial. I personally believe that the Marine was being held as part of an agreement between the Mexican Honcho,and Soetoro. In effect it was another Lakin sort of thing, but with this little adventure the Marine was being held for the DISTRACTION WHICH IT CREATED. Whenever the going got HAIREY for Soetoro,all he had to do was telephone the Mexican Honcho and tell him to turn up the heat a little,and stir the pot. The sudden release is like a sentence without a PERIOD………SUM TING WONG!………but whatever the case I am glad he is out of the stinking TIJUANA JAIL. To him SEMPER FI.

  14. OVER KILL…… IN A SOCIALIST STATE

    Pereira and Velez are students at Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School in Massachusetts. A photo was taken by Velez’s father in their living room and then posted to Facebook.

    Pereira said, “We took [the pictures] with the Airsoft guns because that’s our hobby, and we wanted to include them.” But school officials argue that the photo caused “a disruption at the school.”

    School district superintendent Dr. Richard Gross said he didn’t have a problem with the Airsoft guns, and he understands free speech. However, he “takes issue with the caption below the photo that reads ‘Homecoming 2014.'” He added: “When you tie that to a school event, that’s something to be concerned about.”

    Where does free speech end and pure nonsense begin?

    boston.cbslocal.com…

    http://www.breitbart.com...

    a comment from a reader;
    “I live in Massachusetts, and for several years, I lived in Taunton. You’d think there were far more important issues to be concerned about, than a couple of kids that play with Airsoft guns on their own time.
    Events like this are a big reason why I’m trying to convince my wife to leave this state. She’s already mostly convinced that our son won’t be attending public schools, but even with that small victory, I have more work to do to get her to fully recognize the socialist “utopia” this state (Massachusetts) has become.”

  17. RMinNC | November 1, 2014 at 1:10 pm |

    Afternoon, RM,

    Yep, that’s been the talk around these parts: Two kids with toy guns. The ‘officials’ said that there’s no problem with the picture however, the caption was the problem. They figured that it was inappropriate in light of all the school shootings lately.

    Freedom of Speech takes it on the chin yet again in the People’s Republic of Taxachusetts.

    This story has taken a back burner, however, to the passing of Boston’s five-term Mayor, Thomas ‘Mumbles’ Menino at age 71. Although the Mayah was a Dem (and I never agreed with his politics) there was no one who did more for the City’s neighborhoods, especially the poorer ones. I had the good fortune to meet him back in 2006 and even though I was standing two feet away from him, I didn’t understand a bloody word he said to me..thus his nickname ‘Mumbles.’

    RIP, Mr. Menino; show ’em all upstairs what a really good Boston accent is all about :).

  18. That would probably be “Eh Cumpari, Menino,”,,,,from all the LIBERAL folks in Massachussets

  19. Be careful, folks. I am 64 and on NOT EVEN ONE prescription drug. I am sun sensitive and must wear sun glasses at all times and sometimes do not remove when indoors.
    My eyes were damaged by Donnatal, a drug I took for 29 years for my bladder; I stopped taking that in 2011 on my own.
    Sadly, I probably could have stopped years earlier. I’ll never know and the damage is done.

  20. With the politically correct LOONEY TOONS ….”COPS AND ROBBERS” will NEVER AGAIN BE PLAYED BY AMERICA’S KIDDIES. That playtime activity was always the THING among small male children,and as long as the LOONEY MORONS are controlling things our kiddies will NEVER AGAIN have the fun of shooting a CROOK. In reality damn few of us have ever killed anything,let alone anyone.

    Sorry to hear the sad news about your “Mayah”…he sounded like one of those “few and far between” democrats……well stick around another one may come along in 50 or 100 years if your lucky !

    That would be a use of shades that is medically necessary,and I am inclined to doubt that anybody would ever see you as a drug head. Sadly it is those who wantonly do drugs, who are responsible for dragging honest people into their realm as a result of their own IGNORANCE,and generally MORONIC BEHAVIOR! I do not hold anything against those who must use such devices. I still stand with the knowledge that wearing the shades is ALSO a DEAD giveaway of POT SMOKERS. Unfortunately pot smoking effects their eyes as well. At least 17 of them discovered that they had fooled no one and Parker Hannafin Co, fired 17 of their employees in less than 2 hours. The tests are rarely wrong.

  24. OLDSAILOR82….

    Thank you; the Mayah, although he was my political opposite, really gave a damn about the people; his 20+ years as Mayor was scandal and corruption-free…don’t know too many others who could claim the same record.

    I will vote a straight Republican ticket on Tuesday, even though I’ll have to hold my nose and click my heels three times in order to do it.

  32. Good morning World…….

    AIN’T IT THE TRUTH…..

  33. RMINNC…….
    Absolutely loved the Hellcat combat footage of Wake,Tarawa,and Truk…… great Hellcat pilotage. Those guys really earned all they got. Interestingly the Hellcat in it’s final version of WW2 was kicking out nearly 3000HP,and had finally been equipped with the fourbladed Hamilton Standard, FAN prop. With this improvement alone the aircraft could go straight up nearly indefinitely without any fear of early stall out. The P-51 Mustangs also had the same advantage. The final version of the P-51 was also cranking out around 2500HP w/a little boost. The Tuskegee Airforce flew many of the improved models. It was one of the worlds REAL BADASSES. In the Pacific war the Hellcat ranked SUPREME, but the F4U Corsair was right on it’s butt for the same distinction.The P-38 aircraft were land based planes and didn’t see a lot of the real action. But with their twin Merlins they too were among the “OVER 5” propeller driven aircraft. Over 5 refers to their ability to fly over 500 MPH flat and level. For the P -38 they were eventually redlined at 480,and eventually all of the fighters were redlined at airspeeds below the flat out speeds, this was because the primary airframes were never designed for such loading. The US finished out WW2 with piston engine aircraft.
    We saw the introduction of jet fighters during the Korean war.

  34. Something else to be concerned about:
    This came from Newsmax in a scroll-down e-mail, so no link. I’m just posting the most important part:
    NYPD Fears Drone Attacks by Terrorists

    The New York City Police Department is increasingly concerned that terrorists could use drones to launch devastating attacks on the city.

    “We look at it as something that could be a terrorist’s tool,” Deputy Chief Salvatore DiPace told CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues.

    DiPace is worried that drone technology has advanced to the point that someone could carry out an air assault using chemical weapons or firearms.

    But the NYPD is most concerned about drones carrying explosives. And one video was a “wakeup call” for the department, CBS reported.

    The video from last year shows a drone hovering over a crowd of people as German Chancellor Angela Merkel was delivering an address. The drone flew toward the podium and landed right in front of Merkel.

    “If you really think about what could have happened there — the drone hit its target right on the mark and could have taken the chancellor and her people out,” DiPace said.

    His concern has been increased by a steep rise in the number of drone incidents in New York City — more than 40 in the past year.

    In one incident, a police helicopter nearly collided with a drone flying about 800 feet above the ground.

    SueK,
    LOL, I wonder if “Mike” ever wished he was a Boy Scout?

  42. We are witnessing the total collapse of a bad idea. Obamaism, a quasi-socialist commitment to a more powerful government at home and an abdication of American leadership around the world, is being exposed as a historic calamity. It is fueling domestic fear and global disorder and may well lead to a world war. If there is a smidgen of a silver lining, it is that the unraveling, complete with Obama’s shameless attempts to duck responsibility, is playing out on the eve of the midterm elections. Fortunately, voters seem ready to respond by giving Republicans control of both houses of congress.

    Maybe he was, Bob; maybe he was.

    We know that most of the truth about these two has been scrubbed. Perhaps some enterprising soul will dig around and see what they can find. The only photo I’ve seen was an old high school (I think) one of Michael LaVaughn Robinson in football gear with his team.

    I’m still waiting for pictures of Mike pregnant and the happy parents holding brand new infants in their arms; so far, zilch.

  44. BOB and SueK……

    When the American people give the Republicans control of both houses…we will then see if the fix is in or not…..if they do nothing but set on their fat $sses in Washington and do not bring an investigation against this illegal pResident then we will know……….

    1) that our votes meant nothing in the mid term.
    2) that there is only ONE party controlling America.
    3) we are doomed to either revolt,
    or accept our chains with a smile.
    4) that there really is a shadow government in control.

    I’m hoping something comes out of a Republican mandate this November, but I’m not holding my breath until it happens.

  45. THERE’S ONE SURE WAY TO PREVENT VOTER FRAUD TUESDAY……

    Make every voter put his thumb in indelible ink that will not wear off for a week…..then impose a punishment of “thumbs off” for all the bastards who try to vote two or there times.

    This policy works well in the Arab countries…I’m sure it would work as well in America….I’m damn sick and tired of my vote being cancelled out by some bastard who isn’t even legal voting three or four times…..

  46. The founder of Blackwater just came forward with the TRUTH about what Obama was really doing in Benghazi. You won’t hear this in the media.

    This explains exactly why Obama was desperate to cover it up.

  47. RMinNC,
    Any improvement is better than the usurper running wild.

    Absolutely, Bob! If we are able to get rid of Harry Reid who is sitting on over 300 bills sent to the Senate by the House, that will be something to be grateful for. Also, as you say, the usurper cannot continue to just do whatever he pleases. He is running scared, it seems.

    You’re spot on, RM; the proof will be what the ‘new’ Congress does…or does not do.

    MA is a one-party state, regardless of who’s elected; the Legislature will always be Dem, no matter what. Let’s see if America is also one-party and if it is, it’s time to wipe the slate clean and start over with representatives who actually care about the people, and who are not in it to line their pockets and have a lifetime ‘job.’

    Tuesday will tell us where we are….and where we’ll need to go.

    I fear, however, that the time between the election and the swearing in of the newly elected Congress will give Obola plenty of time to hammer the final nail in America’s coffin. Regardless of the outcome on Tuesday, watch for him to try to inflict the most damage he can….unless we can stop it in its tracks.

    Buckle your seat belt and pray; it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.

    It seems obvious that a certain newspaper in Charlotte really hates running stories that make Democrats look greedy in the last weekend before an election.

    The Charlotte Observer seems to be suffering from a vanishing-Kay-Hagan-scandal problem today. Republicans seized on a new story
