another good reason for free healthcare my live in boyfriend works in different prisons as a contractor. to get a new job, he had to take a tb test, that came up positive. we don't think he has it, only that he's been exposed to it. i ed down to the health department to get us and our son tested. i was told that xrays for him would cost $95, but we're already living check to check! goodness forbid he actually has tb, but doesn't have any symptoms. the woman i spoke with said that if the test came up positive, it simply means that he's been exposed, but not that he'll die or that he's contagious. all i know is that he should definitely get more testing, but we can't afford it. i'm going to keep ing around, but all i can think is how if someone was really poor and didn't have access to a phone or the internet, they could be walking around with tb and exposing others, all because they couldn't afford to go to a doctor to get properly treated.

I also got postive, non-active tb reading I was pretty upset But since then I've been advised to get a second test, that it's not all that uncommon to get a false positive I too have no health insurance, and would love to get retested There's also a medicine you can take, for like six months, and there can be some side effects, but it's supposed to make it so you no longer have the latent/inactive tb But without insurance, well you know...

I spent all morning dealing with a hospital, doctors, ambulance companies and lab companies that want to send my bills to the a collection agency. That is the last thing I need on my credit report when I apply for a new job.

    How does sending them to collections help them get their money if you're unemployed and only have UI anyway?

    It doesn't. Just some horrible self-generated billing system. One person told me that I need to be behind for XXX days then someone would me to work out a payment schedule. How messed up is that?!!!

    I used to pay $700 a month under Cobra. It expired. My husband is older and had skin cancer so he cannot get any coverage without me having a job that offers it as a benefit. I have many foreign freinds and they too think that the current US health care system is illogical and harmful. Sorry, I can't remember, are you from Austria or Australia? Either way, what type of health care did your country have?

    Australia LOL Medical in Australia is universal healthcare - everyone gets it - but it's not nationalised like the UK - It's user pays - Anyone that pays taxes pays a % of their gross (with a cap) towards medical at tax time - and the govt basiy just mandates "scheduled fees" for services But because it's not tied to employment no-one finds themselves facing financial ruin because of an unexpected accident or illness like they can here, you're covered ALL the time, and I really don't think it's abused very much. There may be the odd % that are hypos and go to the doc for every sniffle, but doubt it's many

    I don't see why not the health care system in many countries cover everyone regardless of accident or employment. However, people are expected to work if there is employment available in their field. In Switz. they had virtually minimal unemployment and no homelessness. Everyone is covered regardless.

    That was my beef the other day. Fining people is ridiculous! I knew that was in Obama's plan before he got elected. I don't know what people are going to do, but I see an uproar coming. Will it be enough to change the stupid system? Something has to change drastiy in this country!

    Opalie, I do not qualify for UI I left my last "official" job voluntarily. The work that I do for my family business is considered contract work. There is no UI for me even though our income is close to half of what it was.

    Well UI doesn't cover you for health anyway and you wouldn't have been eligible for Cobra if you quit Did you qualify for any "assistance" with the hospital bill at least if you're low income?

    Do not qualify for assistance because on paper we look OK. You have to be homeless with four kids before you can get any assistance.

    I hope that the Health Reform Bill fixes some of this mess. There are a lot of very hard working people in this country who cannot afford health care.

    AMEN to that!!!! Only the working people will fight you saying that the majority have health care insurance. They don't want to pay more for those who are lazy and do not want to work. The reality is that people are working many places, harder than others in professional positions for slave wages and no benefits. Lived in a number of foreign countries. The health care system is much better.

    I had been to many EU countries. In Switz., which is not EU, you never saw what % of taxes were taken out, you just got back at the end of the year and the employer took care of it. There was a fair living wage, which is what you got after whatever it was they took out. It was enough for a family of 4 or 5 to live on. i think they calculated how much for regular living expenses like rent, utilities, food, etc. Even had enough to go out and socialize/eat out. Never had to worry about medical or getting sick. They keep throwing taxes are high in other countries in your face, but with their pay scale you have more than enough to live on.

    All they do is complain about taxes and the people mooching off the system. I am 42, smart and cannot get a job. My husband is 61 and has cancer and cannot get health insurance. How messed up is that?!!

    i feel for you and I don't know what this country is going to do, but something has to be done. I understand complaining about taxes to some degree because they are not giving us anything for the taxes. We need a fair living wage and a good health care system that covers everyone. I am so depressed at this point. My husband is disabled, we are heating by wood to save some money. I cannot find a job and my son will now be looking too. If things don't straighten out here, I am considering living in another country and renting the house out. It also depends on what my son decides to do. My mother had all health care paid for and complained about taxes. My sister was married to a rich guy too. No problems, but could not see how the regular person was trying to live and survive in this country. they thought everyone could do the same they did. What, marry the money and benefits? Now they both passed away. Ironic huh?

    That figures I'm in the same kind of boat myself, but I've applied to the hospital for some "relief" as they it, but that doesn't help with the other medical bills At least legally they can't garnishee UI - that's something in my case

    one good thing about this recession is that many of those upper middle class and upper class people felt that us regular people were just idiots that didn't plan properly. now that they're getting laid off and losing their homes and healthcare too, they're starting to understand that the problem isn't a class issue, it's a human issue.

    Yeah - I HAD health insurance whenever I worked and it was offered I paid for it - never used it I only seem to have health issues when I'm NOT employed - too bad there's not some way to get a "credit" for all the time you pay for it and never make a claim As far as Cobra goes - I never received anything about Cobra, but never botherred following up cos I doubt I could have afforded to pay it anyway, but that sucks too - if the ARRA subsidy had meant I only paid 35% up front, maybe, but not 100% then get a "credit" for it, not on what I got for UI

    You should have gotten info about Cobra when you were fired/let go/or left. The deal with Cobra is that you have to pay just not what you used to pay out of your pay check but you also have to pay what the company paid. So it is expensive and it expires.

    Yeah I know, don't know if it's worth pursuing at this point..... As I said I doubt I could have afforded to take it up anyway, at the time I didn't even think about whether I'd gotten a notice or not - was too busy fighting illness etc to care. I might look into it, but I think at this point, it's a lost cause lol
