text-autospace:none">This week I’m going to blog about some sources for information for you to hear one side of the health care story. Next week, I’ll blog about the other.
text-autospace:none">Mark your calendar for the health care rally called MAD AS HELL DOCTORS.COM at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Sept. 28 at Lakeview Park on Perry Street in Port Clinton. Six doctors from Portland, Oregon will caravan across the United States to educate and promote the single-payer plan for health care reform for all Americans.
text-autospace:none">The operative word for this rally is “single payer plan”. What that means is one bureau (also thought of as a bureaucracy) administering the health care coverage. This is quite different from the health care plan currently being proposed. The health care plan being proposed now involves several bureaus administering the health care coverage.
text-autospace:none">To explain the difference — Traditional Medicare Part A and Part B, for example, are part of a single payer plan. Medicare Part D is an example of several different insurances administering prescription drug coverage. Ask any senior citizen which insurance model they find easier to select, use, and understand and they will tell you Medicare Part A & B. Ask them if they know how to compare and contrast the 42 different insurance plans to select the best prescription coverage for their health conditions for Medicare Part D insurance. (Let me know if you find anyone age 65 or older who says yes to that question… I’d like to wash their feet with my hair.)
