No Dental Insurance for YOU

leave a comment »

No matter what medical/health insurance you have, there is low quality dental coverage at best.

In most cases, where dental coverage is available, it is a separate policy.

Dental policies cover very little.

So little, the policies are not worth having.

Dental care is very important:

—  dental issues can become serious health conditions

—  dental issues are often a precursor to major medical issues

—  dental issues have a major impact on the quality of life

—  preventive dental care is very cost efficient and effective

Health insurance providers(including medicare and medicaid) are saving money short term to payout much more money long term.

Government regulations require health insurance to cover many medical treatments, but not dentistry.

Dentistry is treated like a luxury; something only for upper classes.

Inhumane, incompetence, stupid, corruption and evil.

Your Doctor Is Probably Wrong

leave a comment »

Your doctor could not possibly botch a simple everyday diagnosis.

New research shows how odds are, you’d be WRONG!

Turns out many docs are clueless routinely muffing up basic diagnoses and treatments.

Doctors at the Mayo Clinic examined nearly 300 patients who had first seen their own doctors and found nearly 88 percent were the victims of screw-ups.

Just 12 percent had been given a completely correct diagnosis.

In 21 percent of the cases — more than one in five patients — the first doctor’s diagnosis wasn’t even close.

It was COMPLETELY wrong, and the Mayo Clinic had to give the patient an entirely new diagnosis.

In the other 66 percent of the cases, the docs were only kinda-sorta right, getting at least SOME part of the diagnosis wrong.

This isn’t horseshoes OR hand grenades. Close doesn’t count when it comes to your health.

If your doc’s even a little wrong, you could be sicker for longer… get worse … or suffer needlessly with a condition that could’ve been quickly treated IF he knew what he was dealing with from the get-go.

I know what you might be thinking.

Not MY doctor! If he were this bad, I’d sure as heck be able to figure it out, right?

Well… maybe not.

Remember that many common conditions, from pain to infection, cure themselves over time — sometimes, in a matter of days.

So, what does this mean for you? QUESTION EVERYTHING.

You do not have to turn yourself into a pest at the doctor’s office, but you DO have to pepper him with questions until you’re satisfied he’s dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’s.

And if you are not getting better, do not be shy about getting a second or even third opinion.

Today’s doctors have little concern for their patients, especially their quality of life.

Their motto:  Get the money while not getting sued.

Health Care System In Shambles

leave a comment »

Your health care system is a total failure.

People could live much healthier and longer lives.

The United States spend twice as much per person on health care than any other nation.

Yet, The United States ranks about 40th in quality of health care.

And, there is no “care” in the health care system.

Fewer doctors, less quality doctors, longer waits for an appointment.

Limited coverage by insurance programs.

More and more Americans are going on “health care” vacations; lower costs and better medicine in other nations(even without insurance).

The health care is now a battle between government regulation and the health care system money machine.

Patients are sheared like sheep and then slaughtered.

Government is part of the cause; it is not going to solve the problem.

Solution guidelines:

—  the problem can be solved

—  people need to stop relying on government

—  individuals must take responsibility for their health and the health care system

—  individuals are too lazy and incompetent to do what is necessary

—  assistance is available

It is your life.

What are you going to do?

Cattle And Sheep

leave a comment »

Health care providers treat patients like cattle.

Patients act like sheep and just follow along.

Health care providers are both greedy and inhumane.

The days of health care providers caring about their patients are long past.

Everyday, every doctor violates the Hippocratic Oath.

This is the oath all doctors take.

It means to do no harm.

Everyday, doctors harm their patients by practicing assembly line medicine.

Doctors used to give the highest priority to their patients.

Being a doctor used to be “a calling” like the ministry.

Doctors were respectable; now they are killers and thieves.

Now, doctors

—  push patients through

—  avoid liability

—  grab all the money

—  never give patients even a first thought

Health care quality is in a rapid decline.

Government, doctors and patients all share responsibility.

Do you want quality health care?

Better fight for it.

Demand doctors

—  have good bedside manners

—  spend plenty of time with patients

—  care for the complete/total patient

—  caring for patients is much more than just medical conditions

—  put you before everything else

And when your loved one dies, is crippled or suffers psychological damage because of evil doctor(s), you share the blame.

Patients Without Control of Payments

leave a comment »

You go to your doctor.

The doctor submits his bill.

The insurance company, medicare and/or medicaid pays the bill.

You may pay a deductible or co-pay.

Patients have little or no control of the payment process.

Why?

Because the system is about the medical industry easily making as much money as possible not about your health.

If your health was important, you would control payments.

Any medical provider who did not do his job, you could dock his payment accordingly.

If the provider refused to see you again, all future payments to the provider would automatically be cut by 10%.

The medical provider would have to satisfy the patient just like any other vendor of goods or services.

Doctors are not special except in extracting money.

More than half are under qualified.

Even more have no patient empathy.

Incompetent Doctors

leave a comment »

The medical profession makes it as hard as possible to find out if a doctor has been disciplined or is currently on probation.

And more doctors should be disciplined; many should lose their license to practice permanently.

The medical profession protects its own; those that kill and maim alike.

California has 32 page list of doctors on probation.

The health care system needs a central list of all doctors with all disciplinary charges, whether upheld or not.

There should be another central list of all patient complaints; no doctor responses allowed.

Both lists have to be controlled by a non-governmental organization with no ties to the medical profession.

Both lists should be available, free of charge and with no qualifying(no sign in), over the internet.

Just go to the websites, then look-up or browse.

No one should suffer from an incompetent, unqualified doctor.

Hospital Infections Kill

leave a comment »

Every year over 80,000 Americans die from hospital infections.

The health care system has battled hospital-borne infections for years. But there has been little success.

Why can’t this scourge be stopped?

Because doctors and nurses are lazy.

They do not wash and disinfect their hands.

Since health care workers are clearly unwilling to do their job, it falls on patients to demand safety.

How do you protect yourself?

Simply do this: Before a health care worker touches you, ask politely if they have washed their hands. Wearing gloves is not a safe substitute for handwashing.

You should not feel awkward about asking. Health care workers know they should be washing. Even though it might feel uncomfortable, it could save your life.
