Okay… let me get this straight…
I pay over $600 a month for insurance that covers myself and the other four members of my family
Over 70% of all the requests and claims we make for Makoa are denied by our insurance
The real icing on the cake was this past week when we were denied a RSV vaccine that would help strengthen Makoa’s immune system, which is the exact reason we were in the hospital in May. Our case worker told us that if we made less money or didn’t have insurance he would be able to receive the vaccine.
Hold on a minute, you are telling me that if I didn’t have a job or didn’t have insurance I could get the vaccine? Does anyone else see the fatal flaw in this? I pay for insurance every month and I’m paying taxes for the people that don’t have insurance, yet they get better coverage and healthcare than I do? Does anyone realize that I am being encouraged to mooch off the government?
I’m all for everyone having health care. I’m thankful that Makoa will always have coverage because of his pre-existing condition. I think it’s absolutely crazy to provide health care coverage to those who don’t have it when the people that pay for it can’t even get the health benefits they need. Fix what’s broken first. Go after the insurance companies that we pay each month that refuse every claim and every referral we put in.
While all the unemployed people and folks who don’t have insurance are getting the best care, I’m forking out over 15k to get the coverage my son needs, hoping to recoup some of that from Anthem. We all know that isn’t going to happen.
I say repeal Obamacare and fix the current system or put a system in place to cover those who pay for insurance and pay taxes. I’d love to have someone debate me on this because if you’re not living this nightmare, you don’t even deserve to be at the podium.
