The fourth Georgia hospital in the last two years is closing its doors due to financial difficulties caused by Obamacare’s payment cuts.
Obamacare is wreaking havoc upon our healthcare system. From the coming bailouts for insurance companies to failing hospitals to doctors who simply can't practice their profession due to Obamacare's financial pitfalls.
We've been warned by people who lived through the Nazi regime that a major goal of a Marxist takeover is to get everyone and all systems dependent upon the government – and that the same thing is happening to this country.
It seems that our healthcare system is quickly headed that way.
The fourth Georgia hospital in two years is closing its doors due to severe financial difficulties caused by Obamacare’s payment cuts for emergency services.
The Lower Oconee Community Hospital is, for now, a critical access hospital in southeastern Georgia that holds 25 beds. The hospital is suffering from serious cash-flow problems, largely due to the area’s 23 percent uninsured population, and hopes to reopen as “some kind of urgent care center,” CEO Karen O’Neal said.
Many hospitals in the 25 states that rejected the Medicaid expansion are facing similar financial problems. Liberal administration ally Think Progress has already faulted Georgia for not expanding Medicaid as Obamacare envisioned.
But the reality is more complicated. The federal government has historically made payments to hospitals to cover the cost of uninsured patients seeking free medical care in emergency rooms, as federal law mandates that hospitals must care for all patients regardless of their ability to pay.
Because the Affordable Care Act’s authors believed they’d forced all states to implement the Medicaid expansion, Obamacare vastly cut hospital payments, the Associated Press reports.
The Supreme Court ruled that states could reject the Medicaid expansion in 2012, as part of the decision that upheld Obamacare generally. Since that decision, the Obama administration has so far instituted 28 unilateral delays and changes to the health care law’s implementation without congressional approval, Fox Business reports.
From verifying eligibility for subsidies to enforcing employer requirements, the Obama administration has already taken a hacksaw to the health care reform law, but it has made no changes to the provision raising problems for half the nation’s hospitals.
God is not afraid of obama. If God were to see fit to remove obama, He would not have to strive and strain with people or proceedures. He could simply do it. Keep praying.
Exactly what the Bill is designed to do, Obama is here to destroy America….CAN YOU SAY UKRAINE????
I have A question why is what the insurance company pays never enough you still have a large sum out of pocket as well? If our government really wants to help why not set a limit to the amount you can be charged period no more hidden charges!!
Good to hear. Why should there be 8 hospitals in an average size city. They expanded hospitals everywhere because no body was stopping their greed. Way to go AHA. If you want health insurance prices to drop you need someone something to control the greed. Finally someone is sticking up for the average Joe. Thanks Barack Obama.
P.S. Why should we bail out insurance agencies. Are you nuts!
Where are the Crazies when you need them !!
