As our President is pushing hard to get the Health Care Reform Act passed in Congress and with a new addition being added to it a governmental insurance option. That’s option folks and that means you have the option to take it or leave it! Okay get back on track there kiddo.

I am sure that he is aware of what is going on with Medicare he has already put somethings in place in the Health Care Reform Act pertaining to Medicare.  He wants to cap payments for health services that are paid out to various health care venues and he is has stipulated placing medical records on computer and there are others. This is a start, well last night I viewed this 60 Minute report about Medicare Fraud.

Now we know that there is such a beast and he does too but I just got more angry as I heard this convict (who has 12yrs time to serve) talk about how he did it and laugh about it. Then brag about the gas powered prosthetic limbs he billed Medicare for at the cost of $50,000 each. OMG!!!

We are paying for this from our paychecks people! You know that line among many of deductions from our paycheck next to the biggie the Federal Income Tax, geesh! FICA-Medicare is removed it’s the next biggest deduction.  So if you really want to get upset as I did think of it this way we are paying someone to rip us off! 😦

Here’s a true medicare fraud story for ya. A person works in an ophthalmologist office about almost 20 years ago (yep 20 years this is nothing new) found out that visual screenings (for ages 50+ yrs) were being fudged to reflect that patients were seeing worse than they really were.

Why was this done to bill Medicare for a trip out the homes, nursing homes, convalescent homes etc and bill Medicare a full ophthalmology eye exam (which costs more than an optometrist’s eye exam by at least double).  Remember most of these patients were seeing 20/20 by the way that is normal vision or maybe the line above normal which is still great for a patient of that age.

Coming from the Hippocratic oath of , “Do no harm, I would say that wasn’t taken seriously. Most of these patient’s vision was normal and oh they weren’t complaining about vision difficulties.  So you see this is not a new phenomenon and it has been going on for years bilking the system, know what I mean?

Ain’t that a kick in the head and yes it burns my butt to a crisp.  So I know President Obama is aware of this just not sure of the depth yet.

However at last count of  $60 Billion dollars in fraudulent claims I would say let’s get BUSY QUICKLY!!!

Does this BOTHER U ?

Does this BOTHER U ?

I am slightly bothered by this where a retirement community in Pinellas Park, Florida asks for their neighbors to evict their 6 year old grand-daughter.

Okay I understand that their are community rules and regulations in these retirement communities but gee wiz!

The grandparent Jimmy and Judie Stottler live in this retirement community that doesn’t allow children. The home owners association wants the child removed,  evicted,  gone, ka-put!

Jimmy and Judie were in the process of selling their home however with the real estate market crash those plans where destroyed and put on hold.

So now they are forced to stay until something else comes up meanwhile the home owners association is badgering this couple and their granddaughter.

Who by the way was placed in a foster home due to the state finding out that her mother was abusing drugs.

Now just what gives? Does this BOTHER U?

I am Aware of Triple Negative Breast Cancer

This October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Having lost a relative to this type of cancer and well before more advanced medical technologies where available back in the 70’s, I have learned so much about cancer.

It’s ironic that my mother is a retired chemotherapy R.N. and that cancer is prevalent in our family. Today I learned more about Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) mostly this condition is more prevalent amount African American women and more so in younger African American women.

I have always been an advocate for the research for the cure of Breast Cancer. Knowing that there are varies sub-cancer under the Breast Cancer umbrella it just brings to mind so many that are continuously fighting for the cure.

My condolences for those that are going through this and those that have lost loved ones to Breast Cancer. This is not only a month to reflect get involved with the fight but I urge you to not only just think during October but throughout the year. Those with cancer think about it everyday,  to help save lives.
