OBAMACare Will Cause Medical Claims Costs To Jump 32 Percent

News Report Just In:
Obamacare Will Cause Medical Claims Costs
To Jump 32 Percent %%%


Can you live the "Guitar Life" and still pay for a flu shot?
Or get both breast examined, instead of one?
Or continue to see your proctologist on a weekly basis?
Or make sure your "Male" Functions Function BEFORE MIS-Function?



I know some of you UG'ers will live FOREVER without a problem

But, are there ANY UG'ers who actually PAY for HEALTH INSURANCE . . . .
yet still cannot afford to pay the co-pay???


Of the 1.5 million Ultimate Guitarists, how many of you have health insurance?
Of the 1.4 million UG members WITHOUT health insurance,
what do you do when you or your kids are not 100% ~ Witch Doctor?

Really, all you have to do is write one Pitbull~like pop song,
and your family of eight kids will be forever taken care of

Would LOVE to hear your stories and plans . . . .




WASHINGTON 3/26/2013 (AP) — Medical claims costs — the biggest driver of health insurance premiums — will jump an average 32 percent for Americans' individual policies under President Barack Obama's overhaul, according to a study by the nation's leading group of financial risk analysts.

The report could turn into a big headache for the Obama administration at a time when many parts of the country remain skeptical about the Affordable Care Act. The estimates were recently released by the Society of Actuaries to its members.

While some states will see medical claims costs per person decline, the report concluded the overwhelming majority will see double-digit increases in their individual health insurance markets, where people purchase coverage directly from insurers.

The disparities are striking. By 2017, the estimated increase would be 62 percent for California, about 80 percent for Ohio, more than 20 percent for Florida and 67 percent for Maryland. Much of the reason for the higher claims costs is that sicker people are expected to join the pool, the report said.

The report did not make similar estimates for employer plans, the mainstay for workers and their families. That's because the primary impact of Obama's law is on people who don't have coverage through their jobs.

What the heck is all this?

Well, as a medical billing/coder (where I deal with a whole bunch of medical claims) I can safely say I have no idea what you are talking about.

But that's because nobody wants me to work for them.

Obeezy can choke on a Dick, remember when he first ran he was talking about instituting a Canadien style health care instead of an unregulated tax. I'm not paying for it i don't care excecute me.

That isn't the way the pit works. Shame on you for thinking this is how the pit works after just joining.

Stupid IS as Stupid DOES. Kinda Stupid Reading, huh?

You really don't think 1.4 million of 1.5 million UG members
are not on street corners with their guitar cases wide open accepting
penny-nickel-dimes? Or getting extra income working the local pub?

Or sending the wife off to work for the health care insurance payments
while us UG'ers write the next "Sweet Child o Mine" or "Master of Puppets"

Someone's gotta pay for your hangovers

Maybe musicians should add a "Obama Health Care Payment" course
to their MBA curriculum before committing to a life on the road

Bottom line, how are you taking care of your meds?

HaHa ~ You are Canadian, MinterMan!!!
You know the score.

Long ago, many fled to Canada to avoid the draft.

Now, you are going to get a TON of UG'ers fleeing to Canada for your FREE Health Care.
There will be more out of work musicians than there are pubs to play a tune in

Double Cheers

You did not walk over from the American Socialism thread, did you?
How did that workout?

Basically Obama Care is an extension of the Socialization-ism growing
within our USA and we are taking it in the proctologist department.

Making a living will be harder. Taking care of your family will be near impossible.

But, I do feel shamed

Obama got the job with the unemployed vote, and
the "Illegal Alien but Legal to Vote" vote, and
the "Live can be Polyana" while you sit on your couch collecting handout checks" vote.



WOULD YOU VOTE OBAMA IN FOR A SECOND TERM!!!!

Oh, CRAP! He's ALREADY IN HIS SECOND TERM
