Dear Forum, I am 63 living in the US, now and I have been working for 42 years and have had a pretty good health care plan over those years. I have watch the costs rising out of control, benefits cut, co-pays and deductible climb through the roof with no end it sight. Right! No the end is in clear sight.
My view point only: Medical companies , Drug Manufacturers, Insurances, Lobbyist, Politicians need to stop now and do something to stop and think where this is all going and how it may effect you and your professions.
The problems are not the Plan you have (Obamacare, Trumpcare, Nobodycare) it's the uncontrolled COSTS If all the professions do not listen to what I am saying you better be getting trained now for a different career, if you are younger or better be able to retire now. As you will not see anyone coming to see you, health care will be non affordable to the point people will not get the care and treatment, they will do the best they can any way they can and the end result is everyone will be worse off. It is not the buzz words we hear about the Unaffordable health care act. It too late for that now, it is not going to every become affordable with Medical costs rising 10-15% a year and your job income maybe 2% increase. Do the math people. So if I have missed anything or you feel I am way off base tell me your take on this but please show me with data how you feel health care will get better, cheaper, and affordable again. As I am concerned it is not going to so everyone take a good look today because this will be the best it can be so look quick. Lobbyist and Politicians stay out of this and all the other Medical groups, Drug Manufacturers, Hospitals, Medical staffers think very hard to not doing what you can do now to slow this trend way down as it is a train wreck coming very soon.
EVERYONE WILL LOSE and NO ONE WILL BE WINNING except the Wealthy and the Politicians. If you do not believe me asked them what their health care plan covers and compare it you yours. PS you only have to work 10 years in my state to get life time beneifits.
