Better read the fine print

Better Read the Fine Print

There is an extremely unpleasant surprise awaiting some Medicaid users. The Seattle Times has the scoop on an older couple who discovered the fine print for Medicaid: "If you're 55 or over, Medicaid can come back after you're dead and bill your estate for ordinary health-care expenses." In other words, Medicaid is a loan payable with your assets when you die. This isn't new, but it's a far bigger problem thanks to ObamaCare, which is going to force many people onto Medicaid who have more assets for seizing than the previously typical Medicaid enrollee. It's just yet another way ObamaCare's a lousy deal.

It appears no one reads Obama Care is going to hurt a lot more people than help. I was just informed that after next year we ( employees) may have to full price for insurance. So for me a family of 4 is going to cost me $565 for medical not including dental & vision.

Hussein has destroyed this country & is putting more people in the poor house it's going to come down do I feed my family or keep them insured. Americans didn't have this problem under President Bush.

One if the things commuists strive for is to wipe out the middle class.

Bear in mind this confiscation applies to Medicaid, not Medicare. And this confiscation applies to all States, not just one.

Tennessee also seeks compensation from estates if Medicaid was involved.

Not a surprise at all, I've been saying this type of drawback was going to come, and yet the people are silent.. Wait until the next round comes to light...
