DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform - Why Are People So Worked Up?
Why are Americans so worked up about DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform?
Statements such as "don't handle my Medicare" or "everyone must have access to state of the art DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE irrespective of cost" are in my opinion uninformed and visceral responses that indicate a poor understanding of our DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE system's history, its current and future riches and the funding challenges that America faces going forward. While we all wonder how the DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE path has reached what some refer to as a crisis stage. Let's try to take some of the emotion out of the debate by momentarily examining how DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE in this country emerged and how that has formed our thinking and culture with regard to DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE. With that as a foundation let's look at the pros and cons of the Obama administration DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform proposals and let's look at the concepts put forth by the Republicans?
Access to state of the art DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE services is something we can all agree would be a great thing for this country.
Experiencing a harsh illness is single of life's major challenges and to face it without the means to pay for it is favorably disturbing. But as we shall see, once we know the facts, we will find that achieving this goal will not be simple without our individual contribution.
These are the topics I will concern oneself in on to try to make some sense out of what is happening to American DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE and the steps we could personally take to make things better.

Universal access to state of the art DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE - a commendable goal but not easy to achieve
what should we do?
First, let's get a little historical perspective on American DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE. This is not intended to be an exhausted look into that history but it will give us an appreciation of how the DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE avenue and our expectations for it developed. What drove costs higher and higher?
To begin, let's turn to the American civil war. In that war, dated tactics and the carnage inflicted by current weapons of the era combined to cause ghastly results. Not popularly referred to is that the highest of the deaths on both sides of that war were not the result of definite combat but to what happened after a battlefield wound was inflicted. To begin with, evacuation of the wounded moved at a snail's pace and this caused serious delays in treating the wounded. Secondly, most wounds were subjected to wound care, related surgeries and/or amputations of the affected limbs and this often resulted in the onset of massive infection. So you might survive a fight wound only to die at the hands of medical care providers whom although well-intentioned, his interventions were often quite lethal. High death tolls could also be ascribed to everyday sicknesses and diseases in a time when no antibiotics existed. In comprehensive something like 600,000 deaths occurred from all causes, over 2% of the U.S. population at the time!
Let's skip to the first half of the 20th century for some additional perspective and to bring us up to more present-day periods. After the civil war there were steady improvements in American medicine in both the theory and treatment of certain diseases, new surgical modes and in physician education and training. But for the most part the greatest that doctors could offer her patients was a "wait and see" approach. Medicine should handle bone fractures and increasingly attempt risky surgeries (now largely performed in sterile surgical environments) but medicines were not yet between appointments to handle grave illnesses. The majority of deaths remained the result of untreatable conditions such as tuberculosis, pneumonia, scarlet fever and measles and/or related complications. Doctors were increasingly aware of heart and vascular conditions, and cancer but they had almost nothing with which to treat these conditions.
This extremely basic size up of American medical history helps us to understand that until quite lately (around the 1950's) we had virtually no technologies with which to treat critical or even minor ailments. Here is a critical point we need to understand; "nothing to treat you with means that visits to the doctor if at all were relegated to emergencies so in such a scenario costs are curtailed. The simple fact is that there was little for doctors to offer and therefore virtually nothing to drive DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE spending. A second factor holding down costs was that medical treatments that were provided were paid for out-of-pocket, meaning by manner of an individuals personal riches. There was no such thing as health insurance and certainly not health insurance paid by an employer. Except for the very homeless whom were lucky to find their oddity into a charity hospital, DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE costs were the responsibility of the individual.
What does DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE insurance have to do with DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE costs? Its impact on DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE costs has been, and remains to this day, entirely enormous. When health insurance for individuals and families emerged as a means for corporations to escape wage freezes and to attract and retain employees after World War II, almost overnight a good pool of money became unoccupied to pay for DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE. Money, as a result of the availability of billions of dollars from health insurance pools, encouraged an innovative America to grow medical research efforts. More Americans became insured not only through private, employer sponsored health insurance but through increased government funding that created Medicare and Medicaid (1965). In addition funding became spare for expanded veterans DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE benefits. Finding a cure for almost anything has consequently become very lucrative. This is also the primary reason for the vast array of treatments we have available today.
I do not wish to convey that medical innovations are a bad thing. size up of the tens of millions of lives that have been saved, extended, enhanced and got as far as more productive as a result. But with a funding source grown to its current magnitude (hundreds of billions of dollars annually) upward pressure on DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE costs are inevitable. Doctor's offer and many of us demand and get access to the most up-to-date between engagements DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE technology in the form of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, diagnostic tools and surgical attributes. So the result is that there is more DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE to spend our money on and until extremely recently most of us were insured and the costs were largely covered by a third-party (government, employers). Add an insatiable and unrealistic public demand for access and treatment and we have the "perfect storm" for higher and higher DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE costs. And by and large the storm is only intensifying.
At this point, let's convert to the key samples that will lead us into a study and hopefully a greater apprehension of the DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform proposals in the news today. Is the current trajectory of U.S. DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE spending sustainable? should America maintain its world competitiveness when 16%, heading for 20% of our gross national product is being spent on DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE? What are the other industrialized countries spending on DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE and is it even close to these numbers? When we add politics and an election year to the debate, information to help us answer these canvasses become serious. We desire to spend some effort in abstraction DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE and sorting out how we size up in regard to it. Properly armed we may more intelligently determine whether certain DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE proposals might solve or worsen some of these problems. What could be done respecting the challenges? How could we as individuals contribute to the solutions?
The Obama DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE plan is complex for sure - I have never seen a DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE aim that isn't. But through a variety of programs their idea attempts to deal with a) increasing the number of American that are covered by adequate insurance (almost 50 million are not), and b) managing costs in such a manner that quality and our access to DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE is not adversely affected. Republicans seek to achieve these same basic and broad goals, but their approach is proposed as being more market driven than government driven. Let's look at what the Obama idea does to accomplish the two objectives above. remember, by the means, that their intention was passed by congress, and begins to seriously kick-in starting in 2014. So this is the direction we are presently taking as we attempt to reform DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE.
Through insurance exchanges and an expansion of Medicaid,the Obama design marvelously expands the number of Americans that will be covered by health insurance.
To cover the cost of this expansion the plan requires everyone to have health insurance with a penalty to be paid if we don't comply. It will purportedly send money to the states to cover those individuals added to state-based Medicaid programs.
To cover the added costs there were a number of new taxes introduced, one being a 2.5% tax on new medical technologies and an alternative increases taxes on interest and dividend income for wealthier Americans.
The Obama purpose also uses concepts such as evidence-based medicine, accountable care organizations, comparative effectiveness research and decreased reimbursement to DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE providers (doctors and hospitals) to control costs.
The insurance mandate covered by points 1 and 2 above is a worthy goal and the highest industrialized countries outside of the U.S. provide "free" (paid for by rather high individual and corporate taxes) DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE to most if not all of their citizens. It is important to note, however, that there are a number of restrictions for which numerous Americans would be culturally unprepared. Here is the primary controversial aspect of the Obama aim, the insurance mandate. The U.S. Supreme Court recently decided to hear arguments as to the constitutionality of the health insurance mandate as a result of a petition by 26 states attorney's general that congress exceeded its authority under the commerce clause of the U.S. constitution by passing this element of the aim. The problem is that if the Supreme Court can rule against the mandate, it is popularly believed that the Obama purpose as we know it is doomed. This is because its major goal of providing health insurance to all would be severely limited if not terminated altogether by such a decision.
As you would guess, the taxes covered by point 3 above are rather unpopular with those entities and individuals that have to pay them. Medical device companies, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, doctors and insurance companies all had to "give up" something that would either create new revenue or would decrease costs within her spheres of control. As an example, Stryker Corporation, a large medical device company, lately announced at smallest number of a 1,000 employee decline in part to cover these new fees. This is being experienced by other medical device companies and pharmaceutical companies as well. The decrease in great paying jobs in these sectors and in the hospital sector may rise as previous cost structures will have to be dealt with in order to get stuck in with the decreased rate of reimbursement to hospitals. Over the next ten years some estimates put the cost reductions to hospitals and physicians at half a trillion dollars and this will flowing steadily to and affect the companies that supply hospitals and doctors with the most modern medical technologies. None of this is to say that efficiencies will not be realized by these changes or that other jobs will in turn be created but this will represent painful change for a while. It helps us to understand that DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform does have an effect both positive and negative.
Finally, the Obama design seeks to change the modus operandi medical decisions are landed up at. While clinical and basic research underpins almost everything done in medicine today, doctors are creatures of habit like the rest of us and his training and day-to-day experiences dictate to a good extent how they go concerning diagnosing and treating our conditions. Enter the concept of evidence-based medicine and comparative effectiveness research. Both of these seek to develop and utilize data bases from electronic health records and other sources to give superior and more timely information and feedback to physicians as to the outcomes and costs of the treatments they are providing. There is good waste in DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE today, estimated at perhaps a third of an over 2 trillion dollar DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE spend annually. Imagine the savings that are possible from a reduction in unnecessary test and avenues that do not compare flatteringly with DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE interventions that are superior documented as effective. Now the Republicans and others don't widely like these suppositions as they tend to characterize them as "big government control" of your and my DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE. But to be fair, regardless of her political persuasions, the highest people whom understand DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE at all, know that superior data for the purposes expressd in words above will be momentous to getting DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE efficiencies, patient safety and costs headed in the right direction.
A brief inspect of how Republicans and more conservative individuals adjudge regarding DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform. I believe they would agree that costs should come under control and that more, not less Americans can have access to DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE regardless of her ability to pay. But the main difference is that these folks notice market forces and competition as the mannerism to creating the cost reductions and efficiencies we need. There are a number of presumptions with regard to driving more rivalry among health insurance companies and DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE providers (doctors and hospitals) so that the consumer would begin to drive cost down by the choices we make. This works in many sectors of our economy but this formula has shown that improvements are illusive when applied to DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE. Primarily the problem is that DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE choices are difficult even for those who understand it and are connected. The general population, however, is not so informed and besides we have all been brought up to "go to the doctor" when we feel it is necessary and we also have a cultural heritage that has engendered within most of us the feeling that DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE is something that is merely there and there really isn't any reason not to access it for whatever the reason and worse we all feel that there is nothing we should do to affect its costs to insure its availability to those with grave problems.
OK, this article was not intended to be an exhaustive learn as I needed to keep it short in an attempt to hold my audience's attention and to leave some room for discussing what we can do contribute mightily to solving some of the problems. First we must understand that the dollars free for DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE are not limitless. Any changes that are put in area to provide greater insurance coverage and access to care will cost more. And somehow we have to find the revenues to pay for these changes. At the same time we have to pay fewer for medical treatments and means and do something to restrict the availability of unproven or poorly documented treatments as we are the topmost cost DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE routine in the world and don't necessarily have the most excellent results in terms of durability or avoiding habitual diseases much earlier than necessary.
I believe that we desire a revolutionary change in the means we put down as with respect to DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE, its availability, its costs and whom pays for it. And if you sum up I am with reference to to say we can arbitrarily and drastically decrease spending on DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE you would be wrong. Here it is fellow citizens - DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE spending needs to be preserved and safeguarded for those who need it. And to free up these dollars those of us whom don't desire it or should delay it or avoid it need to act. First, we desire to convince our politicians that this country needs sustained public education with regard to the value of preventive health procedures. This must be a top priority and it has worked to reduce the number of U.S. smokers for example. If prevention were to take hold, it is rational to assume that those needing DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE for the myriad of life oddity engendered never-ending diseases would decrease marvelously. Millions of Americans are experiencing these diseases far earlier than in decades past and much of this is due to poor life path choices. This change alone would free up plenty of money to handle the DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE costs of those in frantic need of treatment, whether due to an acute emergency or chronic condition.
Let's go deeper on the first issue. the highest of us refuse do something in respect of implementing basic wellness tracks into our daily resides. We don't exercise but we offer a lot of excuses. We don't eat right but we offer a lot of excuses. We smoke and/or we drink alcohol to excess and we offer a lot of excuses as to why we can not do anything in respect of managing these known to be destructive personal health habits. We don't take advantage of preventive health check-ups that look at blood pressure, cholesterol readings and body weight but we offer a lot of excuses. In short we neglect these things and the result is that we assent much earlier than necessary to never-ending diseases like heart problems, diabetes and high blood pressure. We wind up accessing doctors for these and more routine matters because "DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE is there" and somehow we contemplate we have no responsibility for reducing our demand on it.
It is difficult for us to listen to these truths but easy to blame the sick. Maybe they can take better care of themselves! Well, that might be true or maybe they have a genetic condition and they have become among the unfortunate through completely no fault of his own. But the point is that you and I may implement personalized preventive bad health measures as a custom of marvelously improving DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE access for others while reducing its costs. It is far greater to be productive by doing something we should control then varying the blame.
There are a huge number of free internet sites spare that may steer us to a more wholesome life habit. A soon as you should, "Google" "preventive DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE strategies", look up your local hospital's internet site and you will find more than enough help to get you started. finally, there is a lot to contemplate relating to here and I have tried to outline the challenges but also the very strong effect we should have on preserving the greatest of America's DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE drive now and into the near. I am anxious to hear from you and until then - take charge and grow your chances for good health while making sure that DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE is there when we desire it.
DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform - Busting The 3 Biggest Myths Of ObamaCare
In the last some months we've seen a lot of DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform rules and regulations being introduced by the Health and Human Services Department. every time that happens, the media gets hold of it and all kinds of articles are written in the Wall Street Journal, the New York periods, and the TV network news programs talk in regard to it. All the analysts start talking respecting the pros and cons, and what it means to businesses and individuals.
The problem with this is, numerous times single writer looked at the regulation, and wrote a piece with regard to it. Then other writers start using pieces from that first article and rewriting parts to fit their article. By the time the information gets prevalently distributed, the definite regulations and rules get warped and distorted, and what actually shows up in the media oftentimes simply doesn't sorely represent the reality of what the regulations say.
There's a lot of misunderstanding regarding what is going on with ObamaCare, and one of the things that I've noticed in discussions with consumers, is that there's an underlying set of myths that people have picked up as to DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform that just aren't a fact. But because of all they've heard in the media, people believe these myths are actually true.
Today we're going to talk with respect to three myths I hear many widely. Not everybody believes these myths, but enough do, and others are unsure what to believe, so it warrants dispelling these myths now.
The first single is that DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform only affects uninsured people. The second one is that Medicare benefits and the Medicare program isn't going to be affected by DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform. And then the last one is that DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform is going to decrease the costs of healthcare.
DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform Only Affects Uninsured
Let's look at the first myth in respect of DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform only affecting uninsured people. In a lot of the discussions I have with customers, there are several expressions they use: "I already have coverage, so I won't be affected by ObamaCare," or "I'll merely keep my grandfathered health insurance plan," and the last single - and this single I may give them a little bit of leeway, because part of what they're saying is true -- is "I have bunch health insurance, so I won't be affected by DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform."
Well, the reality is that DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform is actually going to affect everybody. Starting in 2014, we're going to have a whole new set of health ideas, and those intentions have very rich benefits with lots of extra features that the existing ideas today don't offer. So these new designs are going to be higher cost.
DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform's Effect On People With Health Insurance
People that currently have health insurance are going to be transitioned into these new intentions sometime in 2014. So the insured will be steadily affected by this because the health designs they have today are going away, and they will be mapped into a new ObamaCare plan in 2014.
DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform Effect On The Uninsured
The uninsured have an supplementary issue in that if they don't get health insurance in 2014, they face a mandate penalty. Some of the healthy uninsured are going to look at that penalty and say, "Well, the penalty is 1% of my adjusted gross income; I make $50,000, so I'll pay a $500 penalty or $1,000 for health insurance. In that case I'll simply take the penalty." But either system, they will be fixedly affected by DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform. Through the mandate it affects the insured as well as the uninsured.
DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform Effect On People With Grandfathered Health Plans
People that have grandfathered health insurance ideas are not going to be fixedly affected by DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform. But because of the life cycle of her grandfathered health idea, it's going to make those purposes more costly as they discover that there are ideas not committed now that they can easily transfer to that have a richer set of benefits that would be more beneficial for any habitual health issues they could have.
For people who stay in those grandfathered designs, the pool of subscribers in the plan are going to start to shrink, and as that happens, the cost of those grandfathered health insurance purposes will increase even faster than they are now. Therefore, people in grandfathered health purposes will also be impacted by ObamaCare.
DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform Effect On People With bunch Health Insurance
The last one, the small group marketplace, is going to be the many notably affected by DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform. Even though the DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform regulations predominantly affect large and medium-sized companies, and companies that have 50 or more employees, smaller companies will also be affected, even though they're exempt from ObamaCare itself.
What many surveys and investigations are starting to show is that some of the businesses that have 10 or fewer employees are going to look gravely at their option to drop health insurance coverage altogether, and no longer have it as an expense of the company. Instead, they will have their employees get health insurance through the health insurance exchanges.
In fact, some of the carriers are now saying they expect that up to 50% of petite communities with 10 or fewer employees are going to drop her health insurance aim sometime between 2014 and 2016. That will have a extremely large effect on all people whom have group health insurance, especially if they're in one of those tiny companies that drop health insurance coverage.
It's not simply uninsured that are going to be affected by DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform, everybody is going to be impacted.
DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform Will Not Affect Medicare
The next myth was that DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform would not affect Medicare. This one is kind of cranky because right from the extremely get-go, the the highest notable cuts were specifically targeting the Medicare program. When you look at Medicare's portion of the overall federal, you can see that in 1970, Medicare was 4% of the U.S. federal budget, and by 2011, it had grown to 16% of the federal budget.
If we look at it over the last 10 years, from 2002 to 2012, Medicare is the fastest growing part of the major entitlement programs in the national government, and it's grown by almost 70% during that period of time.
Because of how large Medicare is and how fast it's growing, it's one of the key programs that ObamaCare is trying to get a handle on, so it doesn't bankrupts the U.S. Medicare is going to be impacted, and in fact the initial cuts to Medicare have already been set at apropos $716 billion.
Medicare Advantage Cuts And The Effects
Of that $716 billion cut, the Medicare Advantage program gets cut the many, and will see the bulk of the effects. What that is going to do is grow the premiums people pay for her Medicare Advantage plans, and reduce the benefits of those plans.
Increased Medicare Advantage Costs
Right now, many people choose Medicare Advantage plans because they have zero premium. When given a choice on Medicare aims, they feeling it as an easy medley because it's a free program for them, "Sure, I get Medicare benefits, I don't pay anything for it; why not." Now they're going to notice Medicare premiums start to climb, and go from zero to $70, $80, $90, $100. We've already seen that with some of the Blue Cross Medicare Advantage designs this year. It's going to get worse as we go forward in the future.
Reduced Medicare Advantage Benefits
In order to minimize the premium increases, what most Medicare Advantage ideas will do is increase the copayments, increase the deductibles, and change the co-insurance rates. In order to keep the premiums down, they'll simply push more of the costs onto the Medicare Advantage recipients. Increased premiums and decreased benefits are what we're going to notice coming in Medicare Advantage plan.
Fewer Medicare Physicians
And then if that wasn't bad enough, as Medicare doctors begin receiving lower and lower reimbursements for Medicare Advantage people, they're going to stop taking new Medicare Advantage recipients. We're going to see the pool of doctors to support people in Medicare starting to shrink as well, unless changes are came upon over the course of the next five years. So Medicare is going to be affected, and it's going to be affected hugely by DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform. Everybody's gentle of on pins and needles, waiting to notice what's going to happen there.
DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform Will decrease Healthcare Costs
The last single, and probably the biggest myth with respect to DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform, is everybody thinking that ObamaCare will decrease healthcare costs. that is wholly hogwash. Early on in the attribute, when they were trying to come up with the rules and regulations, the emphasis and one of the goals for reform was to reduce healthcare costs.
But somewhere beside the line, the goal actually shifted from cost decrease to regulation of the health insurance industry. Once they got up to that transition, they pushed cost reductions to the back burner. There are some tiny cost decline components in ObamaCare, but the real emphasis is on regulating health insurance. The new plans, for example, have much richer benefits than most designs today: richer benefits means richer prices.
DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform Subsidies: Will They Make ideas Affordable?
A lot of people dream, "The subsidies are going to make health insurance purposes more affordable, won't they?" Yes, in some cases the subsidies will help to make the intentions affordable for people. But if you make $1 too much, the affordable purposes are suddenly going to become very expensive and may cost thousands of dollars more over the course of a year. Will a subsidy make it affordable or not affordable is really topic to debate at this point in time. We're going to have to actually see what the rates look like for these plans.
New DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform Taxes Passed On To Consumers
Then there's a whole ton of new DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform taxes that have been added into the peculiarity to help pay for ObamaCare. That means everybody whom has a health insurance design, whether it's in a large bunch, a petite group, or simply as an individual, is going to be taxed in order to pay for the cost of reform. DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform adds various taxes on DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE that insurance companies will have to collect and pay, but they're just going to pass it right through to us, the consumer.
Mandate Won't reduce Uninsured extremely Much
During the initial years of DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform, the mandate is actually pretty weak. The mandate says that everyone must get health insurance or pay a penalty (a tax). What that's going to do is make healthful people simply sit on the sidelines and wait for the mandate to get to the point where it finally forces them to buy health insurance. People with chronic health conditions that couldn't get health insurance formerly, are all going to jump into healthcare at the beginning of 2014.
At the end of that year, the cost for the plans is going to go up in 2015. I could guarantee that that's going to happen, because the young healthy people are not going to be motivated to get into the plans. They won't see the benefit of joining an expensive purpose, whereas the persistently ill people are going to get into the aims and drive the costs up.
DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform's Purpose Is merely A Matter Of Semantics
The last portion of this is, one of the key things - and it's fiddly, I saw it for the first two years, 2010, and '11 - single of the key things that was listed in the documentation from the Obama administration was: DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE Reform would help reduce the cost that we would notice in the presenting itself if we do nothing today. That was emphasized over and over again. That was how they presented DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE cost reduction, that it would decrease the near costs. Not today, but it would reduce what we would pay in the close at hand if we did nothing as for it now.
Well, that's great, 10 years from now we're going to pay less than we might have paid. And we all know how accurate nearing projections usually are. In the meantime, we're all paying more today, and we're going to pay even more in 2014 and more in 2015 and 2016. People are going to be pretty upset apropos that.
Those three myths, that DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform is only going to affect the uninsured, that it won't affect Medicare beneficiaries, and that ObamaCare is going to decrease healthcare costs, are merely that. They are myths. There's nothing to them.
It's really important that you pay attention to what's happening with DENTAL HEALTH CARE SERVICE MAINE reform, because there are more changes that are coming as we go through this year, 2013. Knowing how to position yourself so that you're in the right spot to be able to make the most excellent decision at the beginning of 2014 is going to be really important for everybody.
