Quoting Elle With Three &1/2:" Yup. It's a conspiracy. :roll: Actually, darlin, the reason health care is getting more expensive, is ... [snip!] ... care going up, which leads to higher bills for the insurance companies, which leads to a higher bill for you. Nice try though."


Nope.



There have ALWAYS been the freebie people, who skip out on their bill. Always. We have ALWAYS paid for those people. insurance premiums have skyrocketed in the last 4 or 5 years, with the biggest increases coming after Oblahblahcare passed.



What do you not get about MY premium increasing over 250% in 4 years time?



Just tough titty for me, eh? Did you even read any of those articles? The rate increases are NOT from the currently uninsured.



K...."darlin'"? pfffft

Exactly....I personally think we should have healthcare like Australia has or like Canada has.

I read a lot of post on here though that they don't get the same attention from their dr as we do here and it could take years to get a visit. I like being able to call for DD and get her in right away if needed and not need to bring her to the ER.

Quoting Elle With Three &1/2:" Agreed. They are not designed to provide proper care in this manner."


Also, that is why the ER here is always soo f**king busy. People who actually need to be seen by the ER doctors have to wait forever because there is a ton of people using the ER like their doctors office.

Yes and in Canada, I believe, you only get a pediatrician if your child has major health problems. I love having a pediatrician for my son. Also being able to call whenever I want. I don't mind paying for that.

It's heading that way, believe me. I wouldn't be able to afford another increase. I am tapped out at $711 a month...for just me. If it increases again, I will drop coverage and be forced to take the government's plan. I won't have a choice. There would be riots in the streets if the government just simply shut down every insurance company. So, instead, the government is forcing them to HAVE to cover everyone, which leads to drastically higher premium increases, which leads to people dropping their insurance coverage, altogether, which leads to even higher premiums to make up for the people they are losing...until no one can afford it and the insurance company goes under. The government can make it so expensive that is causes bankruptcies.

I wish they would have tried to make medicaid better instead of making a whole new thing that changes everything for everyone... I am all for helping people who need it. I just think it could have been tried differently before jumping to Obamacare.

No.



In Canada I have never had a lengthy wait to see my family doctor. Children get peditricians if you wish to have one, or you can see a GP. We have full prenatal care (Unlimited ultrasounds if a doctor/midwife requests them), access to a midwife and in certain cases fertility treatment (specialists and in serious cases IVF).



The only thing that I don't love is a lengthy wait in the ER,( which can be hours) but I'm not certain how long you guys wait over there
