It is a very sad day today. Sad because a healthcare bill was passed which will greatly increase the cost of care, reduce access and kill jobs.
The tax increases start very soon, and the Medicare cuts start in just 9 days when medicare reimbursement rates will be reduced by 21%, and 2% reduction every year for the next decade.
New provisions for insurance companies will also kick in very soon, which will cause an almost immediate increase in premium. Provisions intended to benefit very few people.
This bill will increase the number of people traveling overseas for care almost immediately.
