Obamacare May Kick Patients With Serious Pre-existing Diseases to No Cover Curb

If you like your healthcare insurance then you can keep your healthcare coverage is the lie that dribbled off of President Obama’s lips at least four dozen times when he was out shilling Obamacare. Now the very ones that his legacy legislation was intended to benefit may become its most unfortunate victims, according to Fox News.

If you or someone in your family or a close friend or neighbor is suffering from a debilitating serious pre-existing illness and you were managing to pay for your very expensive drug costs, Obamacare may be dumping you on the heap along with all the other millions of cancelled insurance policy holders that had their policies cleaved away from their households.

It is certainly not enough that the president lied about what the law would cover, but it is even more onerous that he apparently knew about the lack of coverage that would impact millions of Americans as far back as 2010.

Can one imagine the stress and personal horror that families with children, and other loved ones now trying to desperately scramble to find out how can they secure the necessary expensive drug treatment that will keep them alive? This is totally distressing to Dr. Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute.

Dr. Gottlieb explains that if the medicine that patients were taking for their pre-existing illness is not on the list, the patient will end up paying the total amount out of their own pocket. “The money you spend doesn’t count against your deductible, and it doesn’t count against your out of pocket limits, so you’re basically on your own,” stressed the doctor according to Fox News.

The costs for the medicine can financially ruin a family and the patient still may not end up with all of the necessary medication. A doctor who treats MS patients stressed the enormity of the problem. “So it could be that a MS patient could be expected to pay $62,000 just for one medication which is a possibility under the new Obamacare going on right now,” commented Dr. Daniel Kantor to Fox News.
