Well I know who is paying for his ultra-expensive, titanium-plated coverage now — YOU & I.

But, it got me thinking. He is a visitor. Yes, as anybody who has watched any Indian TV in the U.S., and there is tons of it on cable and satellite albeit typically not-for-free, will know there is, quite rightly and properly, a HUGE ‘health insurance for visitors’ industry. But, I am not sure how many people get it.

Maybe we should pass some new healthcare laws. If you are a non-resident [i.e., not a citizen or bona fide green card carrying resident alien] you can’t enter the U.S. without visitor health insurance. Come ON. This is motherhood and apple pie stuff.

So who do you think paid?

Plus he was given antibiotics? Antibiotics for a virus?

Come on?

I have two cousins who are doctors in Texas, be it in Austin.

Prescribing antibiotics when it is viral.

Wow. We get slightly better care in rural New Hampshire.


Other Than ‘Anthem – Pathway X’ Other 4 New Hampshire Obamacare [i.e., ACA] Health Plan Carriers Cover Frisbie Memorial Hospital.

frisbiecoveragesep4141a

Click to access ‘NH Insurance Dept.’ presentation, re. 2015, that I featured yesterday, which has this slide on page 6. There are also many other supporting slides that talk about Frisbie.


Frisbie Memorial Hospital in Rochester, N.H., is not one of ‘our’ hospitals. Rochester, is neither ‘here nor there’, as the expression goes, when it comes to us needing a hospital. Huggins, in Wolfeboro, N.H., is the closest, though, alas, it leaves much to be desired in the ’emergency care’ area. But, we do use them — mainly for the kids. For anything more serious I insist on Concord or even LRGH. Never used, never have even been to Frisbie. We do know a doctor that works there — but going to Rochester for a hospital is not in our ‘lexicon’ of thinking. Maybe I should reexamine that.

That Frisbie was not covered by Obamacare [i.e., ACA] Anthem plan for 2014 was BIG news. I even read, in the paper, yesterday, that there was a lawsuit challenge to that which got turned down. That is why I revisited this ‘NH Department of Insurance’ presentation again because I had vaguely remembered seeing Frisbie in there. Yes, Frisbie is covered by four of the five 2015 NH healthcare carriers — but NOT by Anthem-Pathway X. Guess Anthem doesn’t like their charge structure. Fair enough. 

Obamacare [i.e., ACA] based healthcare plans are far from fair, equitable or sometimes even competitive. I kind of think I would have got better coverage for roughly the same price IF I had approached Delta Dental independently OUTSIDE of bloody healthcare.gov.

But this was just a heads up about Frisbie, because it is local, and because local people are concerned about whether it is covered. Check out the presentation.


New Hampshire In 2015 Will Have Five (5) Obamacare [i.e., ACA] Health Plan Carriers — NOT Just (Dear) Anthem.

I think this is GOOD news. Competition is always good though I have a sinking feeling that all the premiums will be up this year now that they got us suckered in via Obamacare.

We in Belknap County will have access to, in theory, four (4). Wow. Four! The ‘Maine Community‘ plan, which I had talked about in June, is only available in counties that share a border with Maine — which means that Coo(r)s gets it but not Belknap, though the western reaches of dear Coors county are much further from Maine than Alton!

Also do NOT forget that the premium-reducing subsidies provided through ‘healthcare.gov‘ are now in doubt and possible threat.

I am going to contact the 4 plans that cover Belknap, outside of the dreaded, plagued, fraud-riddenhealthcare.gov‘ and see if I can get coverage directly through them. I suggest you at least look into that. I don’t know whether I have the energy to go through another bloody round, and bloody it was, of trying to get coverage via ‘healthcare.gov‘.


New Research VALIDATES MY Oft Stated Claim Of The Miracle Of A Low-Carb (High Fat) Diet.

My own numbers on my customized, rigorously adhered to, low-carb but LOTS of cheese, pork, chicken and burger diet. Click to EXPAND. Use link above for the original post that talks about these numbers.


I have said this very same thing before and I will say it again.

It is NOT the fats you have to cut out but the carbs.

This study just attests what some of us have known, from hands on experience, for years.

Think of this as a public service post for those that are struggling to get their cholesterol under control.

I have now been on a low-carb diet for 20 months.

My weight has stabilized and I am ‘OK’ with that.

I stress, it is ‘low carb’, not ‘no carb’.
There is no such thing as a ‘no carb’ diet.
Carbs are everywhere and you need SOME carbs.

I have done low-carb before so this is not new to me.

My advice: low-carb, eat as much cheese, pork, hot dogs, kielbasa, chicken and nuts as you want.
Don’t worry about the carbs in fruit. Eat what you want.
A glass of diluted red is essential as is sex —
and remember
an “O”-a-day is far better than an apple a day
at keeping the doctor away’.

(Not sure about bacon. I no longer eat bacon.
To me bacon does seem to be pushing it.
I also limit the eggs I eat, though I probably don’t have to)

Oh, yes. A bit of exercise is good too.

Plus, do NOT fast for more than one day at a time!

I am not sure IF anybody has done any research on this as yet.
But, I think low-carb diets minimize, if not eliminate,
the ‘bad breath’ that some get — emanating from their
digestive tract.

A few days ago Deanna came home with a very fancy, glossy 4-page brochure that boasted ‘The New Hampshire Health Insurance Marketplace’. I was slightly taken back, though I had heard TV and radio ads for them. The last I looked, and it was just over a month ago, New Hampshire was still using Obama’s fraud-riddled ‘healthcare.gov‘ as the State Health EXCHANGE.

Do NOT be confused, do NOT be fooled. IF you are looking for ‘Affordable Healthcare Act’ (ACA) provided health insurance in N.H. you still need, alas, to use ‘healthcare.gov’. That is the only way to get the NOW THREATENED premium reducing tax credits. Got that?

‘Coveringnewhampshire’ is nothing but a front for the totally useless, rapacious, money-grabbing, ‘New Hampshire Health Plan‘ — the OLD plan that those of us who had pre-existing conditions HAD to use.

I, alas, had insurance from the despicable  ‘New Hampshire Health Plan‘ for nearly 5 years. They were useless. During that time they did NOT pay a single bill. They wouldn’t even pay for my flu shot though they claim that it is covered — OUTSIDE of deductible. You do not, thanks to ACS, need them. Other insurance companies can’t turn you down for pre-existing. So, PLEASE be careful. Do not get conned. OK?

Healthcare.gov still sucks, BUT if you need health insurance you should start there. OK?

It has transpired!

Just as I thought it would because even I could see that
the ACA wording was specific that subsidies had to come
from State run Healthcare Exchanges.

N.H. did not, and does NOT, have a State Run Exchange.

So we are one of the 35 States impacted.

I just spoke with the N. H. Dept. of Insurance. Suffice to say they are in shock.

But, pending appeal. But, can’t see how the Supreme Court can overrule this.
Wording is crystal clear.

I am actually HAPPY. I am glad.

Though I fought hard for Obamacare I came to realize, through my own painful experience, that Obamacare is a TOTAL FRAUD.

Even I, though I benefit from it, cannot condone such FRAUD. This is immoral.

I want Obamacare to be scrapped.

I want Obama to be impeached.

IF the Supreme Court sides with Lower Court YOU WILL RECEIVE a Tax Bill for the subsidies you received. There is NO immunity.


YOU Do Realize That We May LOSE Obamacare, i.e. Affordable Care Act (ACA), Healthcare Subsidies In New Hampshire … RIGHT?

Given that I am an avowed news junkie I have known about this for months — maybe ever since the lawsuit was filed.

I even understand what is at the nub of this case. It is all about the wording. The Affordable Care Act, in its definitely finite wisdom, states, categorically that subsidies MAY be provided “through an Exchange established by the State”. That is the key — “an Exchange established by the State”. It was written and passed at a time when the belief was that most states would implement their OWN Healthcare Exchanges. Well that didn’t happen — certainly NOT in N.H.

So that is the deal. Kind of interesting there is a parallel to the infamous Massachusetts UPSKIRTING ruling in March of this year. That too was all about the exact wording of the law.

I am so, so disgusted with all of Obamacare and the lying, cheating Obama that I am HOPING that the subsidies are repealed!

Yes, I want Obamacare to be scuttled. It is a fraud. Of that I no longer have any doubt.

What has AMAZED me this last week is the number of ‘influential’ and ‘powerful’ folks in New Hampshire, some in the political arena others in State government, that have NOT HEARD about this lawsuit!

To me that is inconceivable! How could one be that blinkered and out-of-touch when there is Google News? Well, it is kind of funny, I have been educating folks in Concord about this lawsuit the last few days of the week. Some of them, quite rightly, are stunned.

But I am HOPING that the subsidies are abolished because that will be the end to Obamacare.

We could then go after Obama and hopefully impeach him.

I found something else also. The latest Obamacare Contractor, with a $1.25 BILLION contract, who is screwing up mightily, i.e., claiming that despite getting $1.25 BILLION they can’t process the necessary documents per their contract — NOT A U.S. company. Yes, another foreign contractor! I have said it before. All makes sense. Give the money to foreign companies because the U.S. can’t really go after them for fraud. Some of that foreign money will end up with Obama and his family.

I for good reason have a lot of faith and trust in our Senator Jeanne Shaheen. She is a wonderful advocate and person. [Yes, I have met her and I have campaigned for her.]

Her office has helpe us, majorly, twice — most recently in making sure Anthem got me an insurance card after I finally managed to sign up with them in December of last year.

I just contacted her office again about the harassment that I and 1,999,999 others are experiencing because we had the misfortune of getting healthcare insurance from bloody Obamacare. I really have had it. I will NOT get my insurance through that fraudulent system again. I will pay ‘full price’ and get my own insurance outside of healthcare.gov. Yes, I am all in favor of Republicans trying to repeal Obamacare! That is how much I now hate this fraud.

Anyway, I contacted Senator Shaheen, my friends at the N.H. Dept. of Insurance and sent an e-mail BLASTING a few local democrats seeking office in November! I am not a ‘pretty sight’ when I am mad — but I only get mad, max., twice a year. When you see the steam coming out of the ears, as is the case now, it is best to seek cover. I really would like to see Obama impeached.

I feel bad for good people like Senator Jeanne Shaheen. She and other decent folks will end up paying the price for Obama’s duplicity. I am sorry Mrs. Shaheen.

Obamacare, i.e. Affordable Care Act (ACA) Healthcare.gov Is Still Having Troubles — Repeatedly Asking For Already Submitted Documents.

On December 28, 2013 after 9 (yes, NINE) applications, 26 phone calls to the Call Center and over 14 hours on the phone or online I finally got Healthcare.gov approval on December 19, 2013.

It is all documented here in all of its ugly detail.

Then it took me 6 weeks, with help from various people, to finally get my Anthem Insurance card and I was all set — or so I thought. Again, it is all documented here.

For the last 4 months I keep on getting letters and e-mails asking me to resubmit my already submitted documents. I did once, way back like in May. Again getting another spate of e-mails.

It won’t let me UPLOAD them online! Healthcare.gov remains SCREWED.

This article has it spot on. This is just plain harassment.
The scanners don’t work!
