Healthcare’s Three Legged Stool
Charles Gaba at ACASignups talks about the three legs of healthcare supporting it, the composition of them, and why each of those legs are necessary for healthcare.
Charles reviews Enrollee Responsibility, Career Responsibility, and Government Responsibly (the three legs) necessary to support Healthcare in the US, explains how each Republican bill has or would have impacted the ACA, and what needs to be changed in the ACA to make it more effective for all people in the US.
It is an excellent summary of the ACA, Politics impacting the ACA, ACA Issues, and many of the things I have talked about since 2008 in one 17 minute clip.

I didn’t watch the clip and don’t need to. The illustration makes the falw in the position crystal clear, in that it does not mention the responsibilities of the medical providers.
Carriers (insurance companies) do not create prices paid for health care, they pay the prices charger by providers, although in today’s corrupt system there is certainly some collusion between them. Nonetheless, the role of the provider is of major importance, and any discussion which fails to feature that role is not worth listening to.
Yes of course, you would know this . . . Then too, you have no idea how much I have written on healthcare, now do you?
I’m in Calif, and I was on the Anthem COBRA plan when I had to leave my job due to severe chronic pain. Anthem pulled out of Calif for individual plans, forcing me to switch to Kaiser and start all over on MRI’s, xrays, etc. What a waste of time and money.
One of the problems I find is that for people who want to pay as they go, the prescription drug prices are astronomically higher than are charged to insurance companies, basically forcing people to buy insurance. Very nasty.
1. I do not know what year that was.
2. Cobra was always a ripoff.
3. What you got in MRIs and Xrays are transferrable unless you did not pay your bills.
4. If Anthem pulled out, it could be because Repubs killed the ACA Risk Corridor and Reissuance programs. Thank Sessions, Upton, Kingston for this, and section 227 in the 2015 CRomnibus signed in December 2014.
5. It is a community, there is community rating, and you can not go it alone. It sound like you can afford it.
6. Pharma worked it out with Congress for Part D, Medicare, etc. so nobody can negotiate pharma prices. If you have Diabetes, Humalog rose 350%. Thank former CEO Azar who is now HHS secretary. Its free enterprise, right? I scrapped out a few million tabs for a couple of thou once.
