Obamacare: A Fact or Fifty~ "..there will be a whole new world as far as health insurance..

is concerned."



1. Starting now and on October 1st you can go to healthcare.gov or call (1-800-318-2596; TTY: 1-855-889-4325) to compare options and select health coverage.

2. Thanks to ObamaCare, insurance companies must cover mental health, substance-use disorder, alcohol misuse screening, domestic violence screening, depression screening, etc. under “essential health benefits.”

3. ObamaCare will increase the need for doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, health information specialists, medical billers, medical sonography, home-care aides, lab technicians, etc. Now, that’s job creation!

4. 360,000 Small Businesses have taken advantage of the Small Business Healthcare Tax Credit to insure 2 million workers.

5. ObamaCare will change work and retirement by tilting power from employers to employees.

6. Young Americans (18-34) are eager to purchase health insurance through ObamaCare.

7. ObamaCare saved 6.8 million consumers $1.2 billion on health insurance premiums in 2012.

8. An easy and informative Twitter list of ObamaCare health insurance exchanges.

9. 63% of young adults who identify as Republicans enrolled in their parents health plans under ObamaCare.

10. Health insurance premiums will cost dramatically less under the ObamaCare exchange marketplace.

15. Mental Health

I can recall the days when it was not covered. It was just a character flaw then to be depressed.

17. As for mental health matters,

remember the senator who had to pull out of a presidential race years ago because he'd been treated for depression?

I also heard a great news story on mental health this morning, on GMA I think. It had to do with a recent study where mice were infected with taxoplasmosis, the virus dangerous to expectant human mothers who clean kitty litter boxes. Turns out that the mice who got the injection lost all fear of cats. Their brains had been rewired in fighting off the virus. So this leads to the strong chance that the true root cause(s) of mental illnesses may be traced to infections. Think of the human suffering that could be alleviated.

When I was in healthcare, I once worked at a psychiatric crash unit and received a lot of heated abuse from coworkers because I treated the patients like human beings. Talk about hidden guilt! Every time I said anything nice about the patients, all hell broke loose from the staff. But then I was the only one who could walk the ward with reasonable safety in the dead of night too. The patients did some remarkable artwork, and one big fellow who didn't do mornings announced he was my special protector anyway - I don't think management ever caught on to the fact that I slipped peanut butter cracker packets in his bedside table drawer on rounds so he'd have something for breakfast in peace and quiet.

20. Well, it's been said by medical experts as well as philosophers

that everyone has some kind of mental disorder. We differ only in the type and degree. So why would the pot call the kettle black? I'm thrilled thinking of how medical science already in the pipeline will relieve so much needless suffering.
