Re: ICD will love this budget proposal...
I believe that your Human plan (it varies by CMS Region) has a $6000.00 MOOP, which means that any combination of health care costs, sans outpatient prescription drugs) is the most that you have to face in any calendar year.
Of course, Six Large is great deal of money. Of course, those that are "Duly Eligible", Title Act 18 AND 19, face NO out of pocket costs. Their Part B is paid by caid and anything that isn't covered by Medicare is picked up by Medicaid. It's surprising how many people qualify. Unfortunately ... I don't, but it's nice that it's there for those that do qualify.
Gotta remember that the Affordable Care Act (obimbo care), took over 800 BILLION dollars, from Medicare, in order to shore up expanded Medicaid for children ... Talk about screwin' the seniors.
