I spent much of last year working to get a medical business off the ground. I worked with numerous patients trying to get home medical equipment that they desperatly needed and had nothing but trouble with medicare. Then after struggling to get equipment approved they would put off paying us for 45 days. I do not look forward to dealing with those guys as a patient.
Good luck EB....
Out of curiosity...
Knowing the above (btw, Mom's a nurse and deals with this a lot), any idea why we're so keen on having the gov't take over the entire health care system? I honestly can't figure it out. Not trying to instigate, just to understand.
Let me first say this. Just because the Feds screw up everything does'nt mean they are incapable of efficiency and success. Because the Feds screw everything we now have an argument against any kind of socialized healthcare and some of these folks making that argument would have the Feds empowered to run a lot more. I dont totally buy into that argument. I now know that the real argument against a socialized healthcare system is lack of competition. Truly lack of any competition will make any service suffer. The fact that we dont watchdog our government is kind of like lack of competition therefore handing healthcare to the Feds is a bad idea.
Although I've changed my mind on the healthcare issue, I still would rather my tax dollars go towards a program helping the poor rather than bombing them. You never know what little mind is going to invent the next breakthrough tech....it would be nice if they all had an equal chance to thrive.
