(Best Syndication) Nature has created our bodies with such complexity that even our modern knowledge of the workings of its chemistry amounts to pathetic ignorance.

Making it all the more complex and difficult to treat are drug company efforts to promote products with false claims of safety and effectiveness. An example is Merck Drug Company’s settlement of $671 million for bribing doctors, making false claims and overpricing (See links below).

It is the law. Every sick person must be treated by the hospital after they enter the door. If a company pays health insurance it does so by reducing salaries. Taxpayers pay for indigent patients. Payouts for patients are overhead to insurance companies so they are now trying to denying service. Every CEO is expected to achieve more profit for the company each year. . SO what service then is health insurance? None!

An Answer To Sky High Health Insurance Premiums

Actuaries at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services calculate that national health expenditures grew from about 7.0 percent of GDP in 1970 to 15.3 percent in 2003. And, they forecast that medical expenditures will reach 20 percent of GDP by 2015. It's no longer possible for business, our government, or individuals to ignore these rising costs.

Clearly, something must be done. We baby boomers can remember a time when we never gave health insurance a thought. It just automatically came with employment as a free perk. It's not that employers were all that much more generous way back then. Just like today, business was driven by profit. But, businesses needed workers, and workers were a scarce commodity at the end of World War II. Health insurance was a cheap benefit. Once one employer started throwing it in they all had to just to stay competitive.

(Best Syndication) The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that most doctors are accepting new patients. But not all physicians are accepting new patients without insurance or those with Medicare. You are more likely to be accepted if you pay cash than pay with Medicaid or Medicare, according to the new survey.

The CDC says 94.2% of primary-care physicians are still accepting new patients. Acceptance also depends on the method of payment. Among those doctors not accepting new patients, 43.0% did not accept new charity cases, 29.3% did not accept new Medicaid patients, and 20.3% did not accept new Medicare patients. Only 7.0% did not accept new patients who self-paid with cash or credit cards.

(Best Syndication) Is there a difference between a Single Payer health care system and Universal Health Coverage? You bet, and it is an important difference. A single payer system means there is one health insurance company, and that is typically the government. In contrast, a universal plan would require Americans to purchase insurance from health insurance companies.

The leading Democratic candidates are proposing a Universal Health Care plan which would force Americans to purchase private health insurance. These proposals would not prevent the insurance company from denying claims but would require people to pay premiums to the insurance company.

(Best Syndication) A recent federal audit has revealed that private insurance companies have been denying legitimate claims to Medicare recipients and put into practice deceptive marketing. Since March, 11th, health insurance companies have also been fined more than $770,000 for issues involving Medicare recipients.

This revelation comes at a time when health insurance companies are under scrutiny for claim denials in their non-Medicare programs. The New York Times reviewed 91 audit reports and found a huge backlog “of claims and complaints”. The report also describes “improper termination of coverage for people with H.I.V. and AIDS.”
