I was a health care insurance agent for 25 years. My client retention rate was far above average. I totally endorse the ACA as it’s a step in the right direction. We are far from out of the conundrum crisis created by Blue Cross and Blue Shield the leader in healthcare coverage. The Blues were started and controlled by the hospitals and doctors to fund their futures. I could tell you real stories that will make your blood boil like hospitals ordering equipment that they never planned to use and buyouts that rewarded the incompetence of hospital administrators. If you owned a dread disease policy with a $5,000 deductible and a pre-existing clause, that excluded your children at 18, the paper of the contract could be used as last resort toilet wipe.
We need one plan and one payer and retro wage and price freezes. LET’S STOP the insurance casino. On the whole healthcare cost 18% of the GNP. The ACA was a step in the right direction. Until the next episode of Trump, the tool of the GOP, stay out of the hospitals at all costs, eat good foods, don’t be a slob, get off the sofa and move your bloody arse.
