Obamacare will be dead in 2014...pic included.

A buddy of mine works for a medical office....this is their first Obamacare mandated plan payment for a patient.......

The procedures performed were

1)Full Dental Exam
2)Cleaning
3) Xrays

The payment breakdown is patient pays $36.25 and insurance pays $0.25 (twenty five cents).

In case you have a hard time seeing...the check is in the amount of twenty five cents. Now, who wants to tell me what kind of care you are going to get for twenty five cents?

Ha. No one here has probably read that law yet many support it. Oh the ignorance.

Without reading it you still know it is federal involvement in health care, that is enough to dislike it.

And while I agree, it's far worse to support a cause or effort or legislation without knowing what it entitles. It's not very scientific in approach.

I need to continue where I left off on page 62.

Obamacare dead in 2014, and the Keynan Impeached in 2015. I got my popcorn ready to see the GOP fall over themselves during the impeachment procedings.

Total fees are $190. Patient pays $36.25. Insurance pays $0.25. Maybe I'm not reading properly but who pays the difference?

Where are you people seeing $37 for this? The billed amount was $190. Insurance decided to pay 25 cents and the patient portion was calculated to the $36. The rest is a loss for the office. Obviously anyone that knows math understands that this can't continue, so they will cease accepting these insurance plans.

Was there a "in network" discount?

If so, and in all fairness we don't know, that would explain the difference in co-pay vs. insurance vs. in-network discount. I'll admit, .25 is a slap in the face, but that might be based off of several factors.
