My takeaway:  The guy in the purple shirt first gets drunk and then crashes his bike.  The other dudes drink beer and then one of them drunk dials his mommy.

You want BS?  I'll give you BS. 

I have health insurance.  Individual plan.  Pricey. 

That company is not offering any products that qualify for the subsidy.  BC/BS in my area will NOT offer a product that qualifies for the subsidy.

And they were honest about it.  "You can stay with us and pay what you have been paying, or leave and find a plan with a subsidy.  We know the risk we are taking in losing your business, but our management thinks it is such a mess that we will take a far larger loss if we do offer such a thing.  The only sales point we have to work with is . . . yes, you get no subsidy, but our network is much wider and if you go with one of these new places you'll have a narrower network."

That's about as bad as it gets.

The subsidy thresholds reach pretty high, actually, but it doesn't include income from LLC capital gains, left within the LLC.

Its not clear drunken students going over rocks or rope climbing will lead to 'safe behavior'.

Paying $500/month for insurance is at least 5 kegs a month...down the drain.  

EMPTY KEG plan ?

Subsidy is a joke anyways - most plans have a $6,000 and above deductible.  So you get pay for insurance to pay more for healthcare.  There is even a substantial deductible on prescription meds.

$6000? WTF? My wife (we live in Australia) pays $1300 per year for full coverage, and when she went into hospital for a pregnancy related operation, our version of Medicare paid the $250 hospital deductible required to the insurance company, and we didn't have to pay anything at all. It was all covered by our insurance. Additionally, if she needed to go back in again during the year, she wouldn't have to pay the $250 deductible because you only pay it once a year if you go to hospital one or more times.

US sick care is fucked.

US sick care was deliberately screwed up so our Government could fix it and keep fixing it forwever..  That's how it works over here lobbyists and Congress screw the pooch till its completely messed up then they fix it...  By the way how do the Aussies like the fact htat Americans pay for nearly all development of new drugs?  Nice huh..

Does AUS have socialized healthcare?

Tue, 10/22/2013 - 20:39 | 4081364 ForTheWorld

We do, and it's not a bad thing. The way it works here is that anyone that earns an income over a certain threshold (which I can't recall at the moment) pays a 1.5% tax (based on income) each year when you file your taxes. The tax has some conditions on it based on private health insurance coverage, length of coverage etc.

This then allows all Australian citizens, temporary & permanent residents (on the appropriate visas) to use the public health care system. If you need to see a doctor for a check up, you see the doctor, swipe your Medicare card and then leave. If you need to go to the hospital (a public hospital) as an emergency patient, your visit will be covered by Medicare. Medicare only covers essential services though. Medicare isn't designed to leave people out of pocket, or without health care. If you want extras however, that's what private health insurance is for.

For a better idea of what is covered, and what isn't, go here: http://www.privatehealth.gov.au/healthinsurance/whatiscovered/default.htm

That page shows the differences in Australia between coverage provided by private health insurance, and Medicare.

To give some additional insight, my wife is a US citizen, and has worked in hospitals for years in the US. When she needed to use the Australian health care system for the first time, she kept asking where the bill was. I explained that because everyone pays in, everyone gets to use it whenever they need it. It might sound like some crazy socialist idea, but it works really well.

I'm guessing most of those that take prescription drugs most likely have no idea of that. Are you inferring that ALL Americans pay for nearly all the development of new drugs (through subsidies paid through taxes), or just those that consume the pharmaceuticals pay for them?

Both, the research on this is easy and a well known fact here.  We are a captive audience to our well connected pharma lobbyists.

Even if you believe that you're qualified for a subsidy, taking it is risky.  My understanding is that the subsidy for a given year is a function of your adjusted gross income for that year. 

A 2014 AGI that turns out to be higher than your estimate may be high enough to exclude you from the subsidy that you already filed for at the beginning of 2014.  IIRC, you'd have to repay it immediately + interest + penalty.

Plus what's this I hear about $6000 and $8000 annual deductibles on the subsidized plans?  Sort of defeats the purpose as it was presented to the American people. What a freaking con.

300,000 Floridians suddenly lose their health insurance, btw.

"Leading up to the congressional vote on Obamacare, President Obama told Americans, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” This promise that Obamacare would not force anybody off their preexisting insurance plan played a central role in Obamacare messaging and the bill’s razor-thin passage in the U.S. Senate."

Look on the bright side, the downside is only 20% of GDP, and Obama-care is staffed by consumate professionals dedicted to the highest standards of Govt servicing, accountability, and fairness. It's world's-best-practice.

The nose, the double chin, skin complexion, and the eyes are similar.

Just dye the hair and grow it out, slather the lips generously with lipstick, and pluck the eyebrows and you got one fabulous governor.
