Youíre this big rich railroad guy, and you went uninsured and lost your insurance?

The railroad has excellent insurance. Obamacare shouldnít have affected you ONE BIT. You already had insurance. There was no fine for you to pay.

You right wing Republicans are incredibly imaginative.

If you already had health insurance, Obamacare had NO EFFECT on you. You shouldn’t have seen any differences. And don’t tell me that it jacked up your premium because that’s a lie.

You GOP types are revealing yourselves to be phonies. If Obamacare got “rammed up your arses” as you say, then you were uninsured. And in that case, you’re either poor, unemployed or work a menial job. That’s a far cry from what most of claim to be.

And don’t try to say that you were just talking about generalities. You meant yourself.

Like with anything else Trump said he lied. Of course itís Hillary/Obamaís fault.

It was gonna be a "big, great beautiful health care for everyone." And w/ pre existing covered. Only problem is they can't be covered without everyone being covered. High risk pools never worked out well and the healthiest mandated to be covered,w/ lowest costs, allows the ones w/ pre existing to get coverage.

Because Cancer is somehow different in Georgia than say, New Mexico?

States were and remain the primary regulator of insurance. No two states have the same regulations.

Some states allow insurers to reimburse ERs based on the diagnosis, not the symptoms. The patient is balance billed the difference. Some states allow insurers to sell plans that do not include all medical specialties. This compels those in need to have to use an out of network provider. The patient is balance billed the difference.

The thing about balance billing for out of network providers is that these out of pocket costs do not count towards the annual cap on out of pocket expenses.

No two states mandate insurers cover the same medications. No big deal unless one now needs the medication that is not covered by insurance.

I will give Trump credit for this, though--

July 8, 2019

A federal judge Monday thwarted one of the Trump administration’s key efforts to address rising drug prices by blocking a rule that would have required drugmakers to include the list prices of their medicines in television ads.

Three drug manufacturers — Merck, Eli Lilly and Amgen — sued the administration after the Department of Health and Human Services finalized the rule in May, arguing that HHS overstepped its authority because it did not have permission from Congress to impose the requirement.

HHS Secretary Alex Azar, formerly the president for the U.S. division of Eli Lilly, has sought to deliver drug pricing wins that President Trump can tout on the campaign trail. In May, Azar called the rule “the single most significant step any administration has taken toward a simple commitment: American patients deserve to know the prices of the health care they receive.”

I'm curious about this Alex Azar fellow. What does he discuss over cocktails with his former colleagues these days?
