Health Insurance: Understanding the Lingo

Health insurance is confusing enough without being swamped by terms like deductible, copay and coinsurance. The good news is that we have the 411 on basic healthcare network terms, so watch this video and start filling out the forms.

Medicare Part G

New Medicare Program

You're a sick senior citizen and the government says there is no nursing
home available for you. So what do you do?

Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets. You are
allowed to shoot four Politicians.

Of course, this means you will be sent to prison where you will get three
meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating, air conditioning and
all the health care you need!

Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That's great. Need a new hip,
knees, kidney, lungs or heart? They're all covered.

As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you as often as they do

And who will be paying for all of this? It's the same government that just
told you that you they cannot afford for you to go into a home.

And you can get rid of 4 useless politicians while you are at it.

Plus, because you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income taxes

Is this a great country or what?"

What gets me is how , after being careful to select an in network hospital , you can still end up with people working on you that are not in network. I just spent 6 months in the hospital and without my knowledge or consent I was attended by "Pulmonary Consultants" in not one but 3 of the hospitals I was in. Since they were NOT in my network, I am now supposed to pay them over $7,000 out of my own pocket !!...and that is after already paying a $5,000 deductable. That just isn't right!!!
