“As Americans sink under medical expenses, debt collectors go to great – and sometimes strange – lengths to collect.”
The Un’affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as Obamacare has turned into a nightmare. After numerous attempts to overturn it with competitive health insurance policies, Americans are spending too much money on high deductibles. At the same time, the bulk of millions of insurance policies are being subsidized by the taxpayer.
When an insurance policyholder requires any medical attention, the deductible doesn’t occur until a catastrophic event happens. When it does happen, out-of-pocket, third-party, and unforeseen expenses are not covered by the insurance company. Worse, medical providers and procedures outside the network or approval by the insurance company are denied while the startled patient is mounted with debt and unnecessary stress.
It is common for a patient that undergoes major surgery to be denied coverage for visits back to the hospital or receive primary doctor critical care after surgery.
The supposition is that the insurance policyholder knows better than the patient!
U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin sparked the ire of many of his fellow committee members while discussing his desire to “fix” the Affordable Care Act in a congressional meeting Wednesday. Instead of the spineless Democrats taking any initiative to resolve our health crisis in the United States, they wasted valuable time in political decorum on a cursory examination of one word.
“On March 8, 2011, Joclyn Krevat, an occupational therapist in New York, was sitting at her computer when she received a most unusual LinkedIn request. The wording was familiar: “I’d like to add you to my professional network.” The sender was familiar, too, but not for the reason Krevat expected. It was from a debt collector.”
