ISN'T THIS SOME SPECIAL NEWS GRANDMA AND PAPA!!!
I had one of the most troubling, most disturbing conversations ever with Dr.
Suzanne Allen, head of emergency services at the Johnson City Medical Center in
Tennessee . We were discussing the "future" and I asked her had she
seen any affects of Obama Care in her work?
"Oh, yes. We are seeing cutbacks throughout the services we provide.
For example, we are now having to deal with patients who would normally receive
dialysis and can no longer be accepted.
In the past, there was always automatic approval under Medicare for anyone who
needed dialysis -- not anymore." So, what will be their outcome? "They will die
soon without dialysis," she stated.
about other services?
She indicated as of 2013 (after the election), no one over 75 will
be given major medical procedures unless approved by locally administered Ethics
These Panels will determine whether a patient receives medical treatment or
While details on specific operating procedures and schedules, Dr. Allen points
out that most life-threatening emergencies do not occur during normal hospital
business hours, and, if there are emergencies that depend to be resolve within
minutes or just few hours, the likelihood of getting these Panels approval in
time to save a life are going to be very challenging and difficult, if not
impossible she said.
This applies to major operations such as receiving stents, bypass surgery,
kidney operations, or treating for an aneurysm that would be normally covered
under Medicare today.
In other words,
you needed a life-saving operation, Medicare will not provide coverage anymore
after 2013 if you are 75 or over.
When in 2013? "We haven't been given a specific date -- could be in
January or July....but it's after the election."
is shocking to any of us who will be 75 this year.
Her advice -- get healthy and stay healthy.
We do not know the specifics of the actual implementation of the full ObamaCare
policies and procedures -- "they haven't filtered down to the local level
But we are already seeing severe cuts in what we provide to the elderly
-- we refused dialysis to an individual who was 78 just the other day..
..we refused to give stents to a gentleman who was in his late 80s.
Every day, she said, we are seeing these cutbacks aimed at reducing care across
the board for anyone who is over 75.
We can only hope that ObamaCare will be overturned by the Supreme Court
-- otherwise, this is a death sentence to those who are over 75..
..perhaps you should pass this on to your friends who are thinking of voting
for Obama this year.
Regardless, if you have private health care
now (I have Aetna Medicare Part B) -- it will no longer apply after 2013 if the Ethics
Panels disapprove of a procedure that may save your life.
Scary, scary, scary. Think about this?
You? Your parents? Your loved ones?
Didn't know about it? Of course, not.
As Nancy Pelosi said...."well, if you want to know what's in the bill,
you'll have to read it....." After it was passed.
This is a graphic reminder of the need to stay healthy.
Get your plot now at Forest Lawn....while they last.
Is this a death sentence to those of us who will reach 75?.....Yes!
