The Chocolate Postman

10 Nov

Yes, chocolate is important in life.  Yes, we will continue to write about chocolate.  But the day’s doings are awesome  and will be important in our lives for many years to come.  We elected Barak Obama to his second term as President of our United States.  His greatest accomplishment so far is Obamacare.  Conservatives, ultra conservatives and far right extremists will be filling our ears with barrages of negatives about how Obamacare will not be good for us.

So the Chocolate Postman would like to explain the positives of Obamacare.

No, Obamacare will NOT  cut Medicare drastically and you WILL be able to get quality healthcare.  Obamacare prohibits cuts to guaranteed Medicare benefits.   Obamacare will curb soaring costs of Medicare by reining in unreasonable payments to providers, taxing high-premium plans, cracking down on waste and fraud and encouraging patient-centered, coordinated care.  Obamacare also covers preventive care to avert chronic conditions which currently cost billions of dollars.  Finally, Obamacare closes the infamous Medicare Part D prescription drug “doughnut hole”.  Now enrollees reaching the “doughnut hole” will get large discounts and by 2020 the hole will close.

Medicare beneficiaries will continue to have Medicare and there’s no requirement that they get additional coverage.

Obamacare will NOT eliminate Medicare Advantage plans but aims to bring costs back into line.

And if your currant plan allows you to see any physician in the plan nothing will change.

So really nothing to worry about and everything to look forward to with Obamacare.

So lean back, feet up, take a piece of David’s Delicious Chocolate and look forward to a brave new world in Obamacare.
