You never know when you're going to need insurance, but it shouldn't be the first part of treatment.
I'll give a real life example.
This weekend, my youngest child tripped and fell backwards over a fire ring into a fire pit.
When we got to the hospital, the first thing after the name and very basic information requested.....insurance paperwork. it pissed me off. It pissed me off almost as much as waiting 45 minutes for pain meds that were never brought to us. After deciding I wasn't willing to wait an hour for the right people to show up capable of inserting an IV into an injured child....I checked out and drove the 3hrs to the place we needed to be anyway. The only real concern expressed...."if you choose to leave, your insurance probably won't cover this service".
Well...after waiting an hour for no pain meds I wasn't interested in waiting another one before going to the place I got the child to myself 2hrs quicker than they would have.
Heaven help the insurance person that calls to tell me they're not paying.
So to answer your question Bigredobamafan....Obama care has done precisely jack and shit to repair any real problems in the insurance and medical fields. Only made them worse.
