That's why Moshe Reichman had to wait 6 months to get a hip replacement!!!

Nice video but not completely true. Most of the subsidy money is $$$ that are already being spent by the govt for uninsured hospital care and charity programs. These dollars are simply being shifted and aren't technically new costs and therefore shouldn't significantly impact plan rates (not that other factors won't...)

Since insurance companies are obligated to provide all kinds of preventative healthcare (yearly physicals etc.), the price of insurance will go up for everyone now, but go down in the future since people will be getting diagnosed earlier and early intervention treatments are cheaper than late intervention.

Insurance companies know what makes them money. If early prevention would be cheaper, they'd be doing it already.

So basically at my next renewal I can expect my private insurance rate to skyrocket.
Yay.

Obama had the nerve to say today that people with preexisting conditions deserve to pay the same price as the rest of us. What he didn't mention is that insurance companies will be losing major money by providing healthcare at healthy person rates. They will simply have to raise the rates for everyone else including healthy people in order to comply with the insane law.

It's possible that without the law forcing everyone to do it, a single insurance company could never implement that, since it would get majorly undercut by other companies in the short term. People just care about the pinch to their wallets now so they'd flock to other companies.

And it's highly possible that early prevention doesn't save money at all, yet the law still forces companies to test their theories and hurt consumers. I think Better the devil you know than the devil you don't...

Or better yet, instead of forcing companies to provide early prevention, subsidize it for a couple years to the ones who do. That way would be the best way to see if companies believe that it's more profitable in the long run.

Medicaid will be expanded in many states.
