    Obamacare to solve treatment issues using the tried government "VA Plan"

    Woman dies waiting for Obamacare coverage:

    "Time ran out for Linda Rolain.

    The Las Vegas woman died Monday, less than two weeks after her family went public with details about Nevada Health Link insurance exchange enrollment troubles that kept her from treatment in January for an aggressive brain tumor.

    Rolain was one of about 150 Nevadans suing Nevada Health Link contractor Xerox for enrollment mix-ups that left them without the health insurance they paid for.

    Rolain is the first to die of complications from an illness said to have gone untreated for lack of coverage. But observers close to her case say she may not be the last."

    • So you see Hawcreek ... it was not Obama's fault ... it was Nevada's.

      You got caught BSing again.

      "Since April, her family has joined two lawsuits against the State of Nevada and the company that built its flawed online software, Xerox."

      Insurance firms participating in New York’s ObamaCare health exchange are seeking double-digit hikes for patient medical premiums in 2015, new figures reviewed by The Post reveal.

      The average hike sought by insurers for individual plans is 12 percent—but a number of firms serving large numbers of patients want to boost individual premiums by nearly 20 percent.

      Leading the charge is Excellus Health Plan, which is seeking to sock more than 24,000 customers with a 19.7 percent hike.

      The even larger MVP Health Plan, with nearly 33,000 customers, is seeking a 19 percent boost.

      While a number of smaller plans put in for lesser increases or, in a number of cases, decreases, Health Republic Insurance of New York — the largest on the exchange with more than 68,000 members — requested a 15.2 percent increase for individual plans.

      The proposed rate increases call into question one of the goals of the Affordable Care Act — curbing runaway health-care costs.

    • That's why the NSA is collecting all the data on you, keep posting stuff like that and they'll be on their way to visit you, clearly you're a threat to national security. When they get there the first thing you get is a gag order from the NSA security court saying you speak and your in contempt and now we can arrest you. Formality really but needs to done for now.

        CFury, is that you? The imaginary 'gubment agents" still want to know how a broom pusher reads printed words they can read. I am sure they know who I am, know I am no threat to anyone and indeed would stand in the way of harm for a President I dislike simply because he is President and that's not the way we do things here. Live in the third world for awhile and you appreciate peaceful transitions, but also realize we are headed toward lower word living thanks to Obama.
