[I am the author of this blog, and I regret that I have not posted anything in the last few weeks. My day job has interfered! I will not be able to post much for the next 2-3 weeks, but I will resume after that.]
Unfortunately, my cartoon prediction that I created in December 2013 has become true in some cases, although I truly hope not exactly as I predicted in the nearby cartoon.
Mr. Stephen Blackwood’s ObamaCare and My Mother’s Cancer Medicine, in today’s The Wall Street Journal, is the horror story of one woman’s valiant fight to get her cancer medicine covered by ObamaCare. Her claim has been rejected and is under appeal. This is one person’s story. How many other people have had their cancer medicine canceled by ObamaCare? It is depressing to even imagine.
Mr. Blackwood’s mother had a Blue Cross/Blue Shield plan that covered her cancer medicine. Then it was declared illegal under ObamaCare, and her coverage was canceled.
What makes this story additionally fearful is that Mr. Blackwood’s mother is a medical office manager with decades of experience! She has had the by now frequent experience of many individuals of spending many, many hours working to get her questions answered by the unbelievably complex ObamaCare bureaucracy. If she cannot easily navigate ObamaCare, who can? How many tens of thousands who do not have her medical experience have just given up? Mr. Blackwood concludes his article, “It [ObamaCare] will cause many individuals to suffer and die. We can do better, and we must.”
