Read this if you want to know why medical bills are so expensive,
We had Kaiser denying us left and right on a family member's Medicare privileges when she got sick. Thank goodness for Craigslist, where one can go to find cheap used medical equipment such as hospital beds, walkers, etc.
The ACA is a not-so-good start toward single payer. As soon as all the bloodsuckers are cut out, costs will stabilize and/or drop.

The Daily Show's Aasif Mandvi dismantles another ObamaCare myth - The Week,
Does anyone still believe that we have the "best health care system in the world?" If so, it's another confirmation that they haven't been unlucky enough to encounter it fully.

Are there any genuine Obamacare horror stories?,
I don't know why the privileged bother running threads like this, or maybe I should say: Why do the privileged bother commenting in these same threads?
My Kaiser premiums were scheduled to go to $920 per month this year. Under the Affordable Care Act, I selected a silver plan and pay $126.13 per month because of my reduced income. It wasn't easy to sign up, the rollout was bad, so fucking what?
This is what I applied to Kaiser for years ago, and was denied because of a pre-existing condition - a high-deductible plan. Under it, I will pay more for co-pays,drugs, etc. So fucking what? My out-of-of pocket max is BELOW what I would have otherwise have paid these extortionists for the privilege of being healthy.
It's not as good as single-payer, which is where we're going, but it's certainly better than bankruptcy.
