Health Reform Subsidy Calculator -- Premium Assistance for Coverage in Exchanges/Gateways

Health Reform Subsidy Calculator -- Premium Assistance for Coverage in Exchanges/Gateways

Here's a handy little tool to help you figure what coverage you would receive under either the Senate bill or the Congressional bill. Hopefully, something will pass, and become a reality for all the people who cannot afford health insurance, or can't get through their employers.

My friend Roger's hospital bill, just one of them, for his stay in Sentara Hampton Medical Center was for 210,000. It was paid for him by a state program for uninsured people with little or no resources. But think of that bill...kind of frightening.

Our medicare system is expensive for the government, but everybody gets treatment.

What bothers me about medicare here is that there is not provision for extended dental and vision care. I think they pay for one eye exam every year or so.

I racked up $120k in medical charges. It was paid for by my paycheck, savings, credit cards, and eventually filing for bankruptcy. I'm so glad the government didn't squander all my tax dollars on healthcare programs, because that would make the baby Jesus cry and then the terrorists will have won.
