Affordable Care Act…
Is it really, affordable? Actually the cost increases significantly, and it is mandatory obligation. Obamacare has already cost me $400 (my only income is my SSDI direct deposit of $1023 per month) for not taking it. That’s even though I got my paperwork in stating that I did not want medicare; I was told and always the day before my deposit would be made (so there was no time for straightening the matter out before more monies had been deducted) that it would be better to hang onto it because health care insurance would be mandatory under Obamacare. That person thought I would be better off to keep it without knowing my situation.
I have only been to the doctor twice in the past six years and both times were because the social worker thought I should go in for a checkup and not because I was feeling poorly. I was the recipient of housing assistance at the time and though I never asked for it, automatically Medicaid was provided because of being poor.
As I mentioned to the “Powers that be,” at the local Social Security Administration…I am a healthy individual who happens to be disabled. It is rare that I need a doctor, so why should I be required to pay $100 per month for something I may never use? Besides, if I go a year
However, those people in charge at the St. Paul Office told me that, “If you are eligible for Medicare, you will have to take that. You are not eligible for Minnesota Care if you are eligible for Medicare.”
It took countless phone calls, two trips downtown to their local office and cost me $400 of which I will not be reimbursed, but finally my persistence took care of the mess. Since when is it the government’s business to say what a person should or shouldn’t do with their money, or what is right or wrong in a person’s life?
