UGH: Sick children in WA being DENIED access to specialty care because of OBAMACARE

Seattle’s Children Hospital provides specialty care for sick children and despite being told this care would be covered under Obamacare, they are getting either no call-backs or denials from insurance providers. Thus, they’ve had to perform the care at their own costs but say in the long-term they afford to keep doing that.

Reading the comments below…I’m curious why do so many anti Obama people hide out under fictitious names? I’m also curious as to why after researching this particular topic I can find no “real data” other than a video of this one doctor which resulted in numerous coverage but no further data as to why this is? Having worked with a health insurance company I dealt with state board of insurance complaints across the country and if this is truly the case why aren’t they being filed in Washington state? I’m researching the state site now.

Aren’t the flaming liberals always crying for the children (even though they heartily support abortion)? Aren’t Republicans and conservatives the monsters who supposedly DON’T care about the children (even though we stand AGAINST abortion)? Liberals: liars, hypocrites, murderers.

You mean you expected something different from Obama/Reid/Pelosi?
Obamacare should be repealed on the words of Pelosi
“You have to read the Bill to find out what’s in the Bill…”
She wasn’t talking to us….She was talking to her Congressmen!
Disgusting!

I know a young independent surgeon who was doing well until Obamacare started rolling in and now he’s not sure what to do. It’s killing his practice.

I wonder if they are implementing Ezekiel Manuel’s policy as to why the two and under cases were being denied? And the person with a multiple disciplinary approach needed being denied- could it be death panels are already formed?

Yes, funding was put into the Stim-u-less bill. The day after the stim-u-LESS bill passed…Obama appointed his 15 member panel.
I highly recommend watching the video by Dr. Janda. Just type in “Dr. Janda Obamacare”. He talks about it.

Typed in those words and read on his blog as how bin Laden may have died of natural causes back in 2001. But if this is so, why was that nation holding the guy who gave the tip as to where he was allegedly hiding?

I have a neck injury from nearly a year ago…I was scheduled three times for an operation and all three cancelled this year because of Obamacare..This hear I have been scheduled to see 3 surgeons and all three have refused due to Obamacare.. Right now my Dr. is looking everywhere to get the operation done and it’s been 2 months now without finding a Surgeon.
We are waiting for the call…about 45 days ago my Doctor up’ed my pain meds and added Morphine to the list I am taking…It’s pretty messed up…out there right now..

Thanks for sharing- a pain in the neck figuratively as well as literally. I hope your doctor will be able to get you in with a skilled surgeon, so important when dealing with the neck.

Or those 65 and older.

I think the age for less costly care is as young as 40 or 45 and none at 65.
I think Mengele is a suitable nic for zeke. He looks like a ghoul. He is just a despicable entity. I won’t even call him a human being.

It may not be quite that bad and I think it depends on the severity of illness & cost of treatment. Check out this article about the complete lives system.

I have that saved to my favorites, thanks.
The days of no matter the severity or cost are gone. The death panels are alive and well, (pun intended) and yet there are still those who ridicule Sarah Palin.
I wonder if zeke has seen Christie Brinkley at 60!?
That might change his mind! wink

I doubt even Christie Brinkley would have any effect on him. I think he has embalming fluid in his veins!

Didn’t see this when I posted above. I didn’t know the age was fifteen though. I think someone might have said five before. Did he really say fifteen? If so, his evil is just that much worse!

That’s what I recall. Under 2 or 3 they aren’t even considered social human beings. By 15, society has invested in their education and they are on the cusp of being productive, tax paying members of society (or, imho, strong, able bodied serfs.) and are therefore more likely to receive needed treatments.

The prime earning years peak around 40-45 (I would think it was older than that, but he’s the one with the actuarial charts and grim reaper mindset. Perhaps that is when earnings peak and health begins to decline)

Just to make sure my recall wasn’t impaired I just looked up the complete lives system. Here’s Betsy McCaughey’s summary of it:

Galatiansch2vs20
Guest
Galatiansch2vs20

So, from the graph it looks like probability of receiving care peaks at about 20?

patriot077
Member
patriot077

I don’t know what the intersecting points might be for cost and age but maybe 20 is when they would be okay with paying for extremely costly treatments. 40 not so much.
It’s just wrong.

Age 2 or 3. I’d like to see one of the e mmanuels walk up to a 250lb marine and try and convince that father his 2 or 3 year old daughter isn’t worthy of health care.
That would be one e mmanuel down one to go.
(I can’t think of two human beings so inappropriately named then those two brothers, hence why I don’t acknowledge their name with any respect).

Complete mismatch in the name for sure. What they want is for the 250 pound marine to be broken after hearing the bad news.

I don’t know about euthanasia but I know his complete lives system doesn’t leave much room for anyone around 65. I posted a link to a wsj article by Betsy McCaughey that explains his “system” and beliefs.
He’s a scarey dude.
I’m sure his CLS would not apply to any elite such as himself.

Complete lives….what a joke. Incomplete lives. kids under 15 not worth it…unless the kids are his. Adults over 55 not worth it…unless that adult is him.
My uncle died before the age of two of a heart problem that is completely correctable now. If he had been born a few years later, he would have lived a full, normal life. Now we are back to those old days…but then, “we” couldn’t and were innocent….and now “we” won’t and guilt will lie heavy on The Abominable Care Act and all who enabled it.

I think these people (like Zeke the Grim Reaper) are without souls.
It is truly regrettable that people are not going to see the travesty that 0-care is until it hits them or someone they know personally. I can’t imagine the pressure and heartache this would place on a family dealing with a badly injured child or one suffering a severe illness. It is awful even when you don’t have these concerns.
I curse the Democrats who passed this and the blind fools that voted them into office.

It’s not the insurance companies denying coverage. Doctors and hospitals decide what policies they will accept and have contractual arrangements with providers. The best hospitals and physicians in the county do not accept the Obamacare exchange insurance policies. Obamacare relegates people to the low tier medical facilities and has actually made the best medical care available to those who can afford it. And I thought Democrats were for the little guy. It’s the same reason Senator Tom Coburn lost his cancer doctor. It’s why no one in Congress wants to be covered by the exchanges. You’ll have to pay more for private insurance, but it you ever want a top facility for treatment, it is worth it.

It isn’t insurance companies denying coverage?! Due to their formularies, I see coverage denied over a hundred times daily. Insurance companies and this administration wrote the healthcare debacle bill. Crony Capitalism at its worst.

Every time a patient comes in and tells me that they have to wait too long to see me, or that their drug is no longer covered, or they can’t afford their medication, before helping them, I do tend to try and ascertain who they voted for, before helping them. It may be wrong; but I feel so right doing it that way.

Galatiansch2vs20

They are part of humanity… I hope you are only pausing to ascertain so you can tell them they might want to seriously consider calling their Representative and Senators to ask them to repeal the Unaffordable Care Act, that the long wait and the no-longer covered drug or prices going up has much to do with that law?

Father please watch over the sick, especially the children. Give us the strength and wisdom to overcome the forces that are working against Your will and that also wish to deny us the rights that You have given us at birth.

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
