Here is the way this will go.
people with ins though work will see little change if their employer is awesome. some will loose their employer ins. more of that will trickle in over time.
the lower class wont feel much diff, they already get Medicaid
the next to them very few considering our population may be added, few happy people there to get their crumb
next level, working poor people, gonna be an angry group, they will have to pay something.
illegals, some of them, many I bet will swindle the system im sure and bleed us, but for the most part they are not covered
this past year, I have been watching many smaller places close up while the larger ones absorb them. we are going towards a big or gone system. even my sister said her hospital in folkston was closing down. expect to see more of that, because the cuts hurt the rural areas worse because they don't have the population to do more with less, they just have less.
expect cost to be crazy high to the national debt
services will be eventually cut, especially those that cost a lot, like mri's , radiation therapy, even chemotherapys etc et etc
docs already have the word, don't order those expensive test or you BETTER make damn sure it is needed. I know you love hearing that, but that makes them not order test also when it is needed. you dont want to be in the lattr part of that equation, and you might at some point.
I could go on and on for pages. but im tired.
this will not be a quik death. because yes, the healthcare industry will do its best to hobble along as long as it can. as the debt grows for the nation and the errors and services are cut and the death rates increase, this will take time for the picture to evolve.
all I can hope for is this.
is that all those who voted for this monster, get to taste the result.
