|Do you know which on of these options is best for you?|
SEATTLE (ESTRA) - Medical Services are more important when you need them. Medical Bills can grow rapidly into a payment higher than most mortgages. Wages and monthly income can dry up faster than a desert.
|Accident Victims Need Healthcare|
Would COBRA, Obamacare, or Medicare allow an injured person to keep more money in pocket as well as providing adequate and quality medical services? Which one offers the best security of holding on to your policy when loss of job occurs, and/or benefits are denied? Cost often plays a major role in this decision for most people injured or not. At some point in life, most people will end up in one of these policies. Do you know what to expect? Which one is most beneficial?
Someone else is taking over your job, not because you or employer wanted it to happen this way, but circumstances prevailed. So what are your healthcare options? Before Obamacare, there was only COBRA. One of the most expensive benefit packages around, in my opinion. How many employees are able to afford to pay the same amount employers do for benefits? How about you? For injured, this is definitely a rock and a hard place. First of all, by this time, many people have gone through sick leave, and any other benefits available, including most of their saving if having any in the first place. Yes, this can be a very dark moment on the journey. In most cases, there is no time to waste, one must figure out how to survive going forward.

If currently enrolled in COBRA, a better alternative may be Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act. Most sick or injured typically are paying out a great deal of income or benefits received on their health, which perspectively speaking, doesn’t leave much for daily living. Anything that can be done to help reduce this expenditure, typically improves the quality of life when hurt in a car accident.
Therefore, when employer present you with job exit options, make sure to explore alternatives carefully and the impact not only at this time, but the impact on future income and expenses.
|Watch Out For Harassment|
I’d like to quote information regarding the reasons for the creation of the affordable healthcare Act from the whitehouse.gov website under healthcare-overview consumer rights, quote:
“On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, putting in place comprehensive reforms that improve access to affordable health coverage for everyone and protect consumers from abusive insurance company practices. “
When over 3 million citizens sign up for Obamacare, it is an indication a change long overdue. This is Americans taking actions to improve their health when giving the opportunity. Just imagine what could be accomplished if the many monopolies currently holding our company back are removed? Is a Bill of Right for Customers for Telecommunication Companies next? Is Comcast acquiring Time Warner improving the circumstances of citizens or just increasing an already large enough bottom line? How would purchasing Time Warner help you? Are these companies’ mini NSA organizations? Where are they leading us? Are you paying attention regarding the future? Tomorrow’s generation is depending on our actions.
First, I’d like to make sure we are on the same page by quoting each portion of Medicare as define by SSA website, quote:“Medicare is the U.S. government's health insurance program for people age 65 or older. Some people under age 65 can qualify for Medicare, too. They include those with disabilities, permanent kidney failure, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Medicare helps with the cost of health care. It does not cover all medical expenses or the cost of most long-term care. The program has four parts:
- Part A is hospital insurance
- Part B helps pay for medical services that Part A doesn't cover
- Part C is called Medicare Advantage. If you have Parts A and B, you can choose this option to receive all of your health care through a provider organization, like an HMO.
- Part D is prescription drug coverage. It helps pay for some medicines. “
The burden of being injured or sick, again, is no small matter, especially when adding daily trials, tribulations, and in most cases lack of resources. Yet, from my perspective, the important thing to do is all that you can. Becoming discouraged defeats your purpose in getting better and putting life back on track.
One must consider the overall picture in recovery, and only you have the authority to set path direction. It will be your determination and will that will get you to a desired destination. However, medical care is a very important in getting there.
There may be many obstacles to overcome and stressful situations must be placed in check. However, taking small steps, refusing to give up, accepting setbacks, and forward moves as part of the process will help. Take time and review all options. Make choices work for you. Perfection is rarely found, but a workable solution can be.
Also, do not be hindered by harassers visiting your physicians, or anyone else assisting in your journey. Let their agony be with them, stay the course of becoming better, and restoring life in ways that make days a personal success. Yet, keep those cameras rolling. Documentation of harassment and intimidation is important.
