Obama administration
simplifies health care form

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:US veteran, 4/30/2013 2:17:49 PM

Washington - The first draft was as mind-numbing as a tax form. Tuesday the Obama administration unveiled simplified application forms for health insurance benefits coming next year under the federal health care overhaul. The biggest change: a five-page short form that single people can fill out. That total includes a cover page with instructions, and an extra page to fill out if you want to designate someone to help you through the process. But the application form for families still runs to 12 pages, although most households will not have to fill out each and every page.

Comments:
read down further where DUMBO hails this ´´simplified form´´ because ´´his team´´ listened to criticism from consumer groups and ´´made a fix´´

LOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The scariest thing about this law is it is make-it-up-as-you-go-along. Anything they say goes.

It is slowly starting to dawn on Øbama and the Democrats that this disaster is going to come full bloom right in the middle of the mid terms campaign season. "I will get Øbama Care out of your lives!" will be the Republican warcry. And it will work!

Dems should move to stop it now. I don´t like giving them ideas that could help them. But, in this case, it´s okay. They will not make a move to get rid of it before the time is right. They just don´t have the guts or the brains for it.

Just wait until docs start not accepting Obamacare patients. They are already doing it with Medicare and Medicaid. While I belong to a private insurer paid by me, I have taken friends to private docs, and in front of the check-in desk states in bold lettering "We do not accept Medicare or Medicaid patients". So unless, you pay for it yourself or by an emplouer, a lot of people are going to get seriously bleeped.

What I learned is that the billing by docs are reduced by certain percentage of the actual cost.

Also, it means that a lot of pre-screeing treatment will no longer be available to prevent or scan issues that may arise later.

My private carrier actually contacted me for an upcoming mamogram that I did not even know I was due for it. I was stunned. They e-mail me with all my results for past visits and follow up with any issues I may have currently or in the future. But I pay a very expensive price for this kind of coverage. In my world, rather be safe than sorry.

I do not want DMV/Post office treatment.

Luxury NY village plans to

The Fire Island resort of Saltaire wants to seize private property — using taxpayer money. World War II vet Frank Whitney is locked in a legal battle with officials who want to take his Saltaire Market grocery by eminent domain in order to build their own updated version. And the upscale village may increase property taxes to do it, raising as much as $2.5 million to buy and rebuild the market, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy. Whitney’s family says it wants to fix the store — the village’s only commercial property — and has the money to do so, but it accuses

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho - The City of Idaho Falls told an auto sales company to take down its flags honoring the military. "We´re just here supporting the troops," said Autos 4 Less owner Jonathon Long. "We´re even doing a Christmas donation box for veterans." Long was told to take these flags down after the city apparently received complaints. "With that notice, I pulled the flags down, and after thinking about it overnight, I became more and more upset and decided to do something about it," Long said Wednesday.

A $110,000-a-year Illinois prison official with a lengthy criminal history returned to the state payroll despite “writing and responding to hundreds of lewd and inappropriate emails” on the taxpayers’ dime and “falsifying” his application for a previous state job, records show. Xadrian R. McCraven’s “state email account revealed hundreds of non-work-related emails that included highly sexualized content; were demeaning towards women; were related to a personal romance or relationship; or were regarding miscellaneous personal business,” state inspectors wrote in explaining McCraven’s firing last year from the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

Last summer Ellen Holzman and Meredith Vezina, a married gay couple in San Diego County, got kicked off their long-term Kaiser health plan, for which they´d been paying more than $1,300 a month. The cause wasn´t the Affordable Care Act, as far as they knew. They´d been living outside Kaiser´s service area, and the health plan had decided to tighten its rules. That´s when they discovered the chilly hazards of dependence on the individual health insurance market. When they applied for a replacement policy with Anthem Blue Cross of California, Ellen, 59, disclosed that she might have carpal tunnel syndrome. She

Wal-Mart Returning To Full-Time

Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest employer, announced Monday that 35,000 part-time employees will soon be moved to full-time status, entitling them to the full healthcare benefits that were scheduled to be denied them as a result of Wal-Mart’s efforts to avoid the requirements of Obamacare. While some analysts believe that the move comes as Wal-Mart is attempting to deal with the negative view many Americans have of its worker benefits program, a closer look reveals the real reason for the shift—

It’s no longer a surprise to hear about double-dippers — public servants who’ve managed to carve out two government paychecks or pensions for themselves. But state Rep. Robert Rita (D-Blue Island) and his brother John Rita Jr. could one-up that, each one day receiving three separate taxpayer-funded pensions, a total of six between them. “Yes, it’s unusual,” Robert Rita says. “But it’s not like we’re doing this because of the pensions. I’m from a family that’s dedicated to public service.”

A Tennessee high school has decided to revise its field trip policy after a group of freshmen were taken to an Islamic mosque where they were given copies of the Koran and while a student who opted out of the trip was given a worksheet that alleged Muslims treated their conquered people better than the United States treated minorities. The students were in an honors world studies class at Hendersonville High School and the field trips to the mosque as well as a Hindu temple were part of a three-week course on world religions.

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A Georgia teen convicted of fatally shooting a baby in a stroller was sentenced Thursday to spend the rest of his life in prison with no chance of parole after the grieving mother asked a judge to punish the gunman for taking "the love of my life."

Washington police are operating under orders to arrest tourists and other non-residents traveling with spent bullet or shotgun casings, a crime that carries a $1,000 fine, a year in jail and a criminal record, according to a new book about the city´s confusing gun laws. "Empty shell casings are considered ammunition in Washington, D.C., so they are illegal to possess unless you are a resident and have a gun registration certificate," pens Emily Miller in her investigative book, "Emily Gets Her Gun: ... But Obama Wants to Take Yours." Under the law, live or empty brass and plastic casings must be carried

Moody´s rating agency has lowered the outlook for health insurers from stable to negative, blaming ObamaCare. Few Americans will shed tears for insurance companies. But the Moody´s announcement is a warning sign to taxpayers. They´ll be getting clobbered. Section 1342 of the Affordable Care Act forces taxpayers to make insurers whole for most of the losses incurred selling ObamaCare exchange plans through 2016. The bailout is designed to conceal the failure of the president´s signature health law until he is out of office. No one in the Obama administration talked up the advantages of bailing out insurers. It was kept under wraps until

An anonymous establishment operative told left-wing BuzzFeed that the 2016 GOP field, which is considered as strong as 2012´s was weak, has "gotten so bad" from the establishment´s point of view that donors are "looking back fondly on the good old days of 2012." “You know what a lot of them say to me?

I announced this past week that I will be retiring after having the honor of serving my Los Angeles constituents in Congress for 40 years. Immediately, speculation began that I am leaving because I am frustrated with a broken institution. But the exact opposite is true: I am leaving Congress with my conviction intact that the legislative branch can be a powerful force for good. Of course there are aspects of the current Congress that I abhor.

The foundation’s directors, long-time supporters of Obama, are Martin Nesbitt, J. Kevin Poorman and Julianna Smoot. The library’s goal is to reflect Obama’s career in public service, “expanding economic opportunity, inspiring an ethic of American citizenship, and promoting peace, justice, and dignity throughout the world,” the foundation said in a statement Friday. “I’m humbled and honored that President Obama has entrusted me to lead this effort,” Nesbitt said. “The President’s future library will one day serve as an important part

After wasting nearly $325 million during the 2012 election cycle with nothing to show for it and then declaring war on the Tea Party, donations to Karl Rove´s three Crossroads groups decreased by 98% last year. The groups reportedly raised a paltry $6.1 million combined in 2013. Rove runs Crossroads GPS, American Crossroads, and the Conservative Victory Project Super PAC, which was formed this year to wage war against conservatives. Rove´s two groups raised $325 million in 2012 and about $70 million in 2010. As Politico notes, though, "Rove added a third group to the network in 2013, forming the

Labor leaders who have spent months lobbying unsuccessfully for special protections under the Affordable Care Act warned this week that the White House’s continued refusal to help is dampening union support for Democratic candidates in this year’s midterm elections. Leaders of two major unions, including the first to endorse Obama in 2008, said they have been betrayed by an administration that wooed their support for the 2009 legislation with promises to later address the peculiar needs of union-negotiated insurance plans that cover millions of workers.

Christie knew! Christie lied! Those are the allegations from the former Port Authority official who set in motion the September lane closings on the George Washington Bridge that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has insisted he knew nothing about. The charges are plainly stated in a letter to the general counsel of the Port Authority from the lawyer for former Port Authority official David Wildstein. The mystery is why Wildstein and attorney, Alan Zegas, are saying it now. Wildstein clearly is not driven by guilt over having inflicted chaos on so many people over a four-day period that began with the first day of school

The Indian American immigrant vs. the radical white son of a one percenter capitalist was quite a spectacle. The Dinesh D´Souza and Bill Ayers debate on Thursday night at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, and sponsored by Young America´s Foundation, hands down showed D´Souza has a broad view of history and a love of America as a "wealth creator." In contrast, Ayers has a narrow progressive view where "we [the people] are the sovereign, collective authority." (snip) He appears self-absorbed, and at the same time out of his league alongside D´Souza. When you look at Ayers with his little loop earrings

Ann Romney joined Fox News Channel host Bill Hemmer on Friday to discuss the recently released Netflix documentary about her husband and former Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. She said that she always believed that her husband would be elected president and was shocked that he was not. When asked to comment on the state of President Barack Obama’s presidency, she refused to comment but noted that “the country lost” when they did not elect Mitt Romney in 2012. “I really believe this,” Ann Romney said, “We lost, but truly the country lost by not having Mitt as president.”
