The rationing problems in the Obama health care plan (ObamaCare) can be most succinctly understood by considering the law through four routes that will ration care. Are you familiar with these four problems? NRL’s Academy students certainly are. Students spent the entire Tuesday of this the week learning to explain exactly how the Obama health care plan will ration your family’s healthcare treatment if it is not repealed by sometime in 2014.
- Through the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) the law will limit what health care providers can do to save the lives of your family members. NRL has a handy 1-pager on this provision and NRL President Carol Tobias explains it nicely in this video here.
- Through Medicare, the Obama health care law will limit senior citizens’ right to use their own money to save their own lives. Don’t believe it? Read more here.
- Through the state-based insurance exchanges, ObamaCare will limit your right to use your own money to save your family members’ lives. Here’s how.
- Finally, through “Shared Decision Making” the Obama health law will try to persuade patients that they are better off without treatment. The bias against treatment of many of the potential grantees for this program is incredible, see for yourself here.
