For now as we -- the Supreme Court ruling in the presence health care law by the way it is not happening today.
There is one thing everyone's wondering what will it mean for you when your next trip to the doctor doctor -- -- as a professor of medicine.
And what -- lying on medical center fun.
She's medically fewer high you do -- market morning bill happy birthday to you -- a -- -- say it all going on this week -- absolutely good morning to you.
You believe most likely the supremes ruled that the mandate is unconstitutional.
But the rest of the law stance.
If you are right what happens.
-- the first thing that's gonna happen forever -- out there is I believe it's gonna lead to.
Increasing in premiums your premiums as experts say will probably end up going up by ten to 30% because.
If you get rid of the individual mandate which is it kind of a trek for insurance companies to be able to afford this in other words.
It forces people who are young and healthy to buy into health insurance and to pay premiums when they're not sick.
Do you get the money coming in than you can use it to pay for people who are sick -- -- goes away.
Premieres are gonna go up as the insurance companies struggle to cover people with preexisting conditions covered kids up to the age of twenty -- All the bells and whistles no lifetime limits all of -- bells and whistles stay and that's gonna cost and you better believe the insurance companies are gonna transfer those costs.
On to the patients and also cut doctors' fees conducted -- hanging.
That that is part one by the way and by the way I wanna point out that you you like the idea.
Those with preexisting conditions in New York State already does that -- clear -- you are right on that okay all right point number two what do.
The whole law was struck down.
What happens -- of the whole law -- struck down which I think is unlikely because that's a big big piece to bite off here.
I think then will go back to where we were before all this started looking for solutions I mean looking at the question that I've always brought up which is is insurance covering too much.
Is it easy too easy to see the doctor of your well if you overuse insurance is somebody else pay import is Medicaid and over bloated product.
The big questions going to be if the whole law -- struck.
Is the Medicaid expansion -- -- stay and some people feel it as well let's sixteen million people.
How's how's the taxpayer's gonna pay for that how of the State's gonna afford what will you use suggest that you have to give more incentives to doctors.
I think -- while -- -- I think there should be incentives period I love that word more incentives to doctors to go into medicine to see more patients.
To continue practicing more incentives to patients to lose weight to get on that treadmill to have a better diet I want to -- tax advantages.
For actually doing things before health care comes and you know I think preventive medicine occurs before you see the doctor not when you're already there I -- -- now what about keeping the whole law that say that's the option that's -- the court rules well I think the problem without it that is outside of the constitutionality.
Is just how expensive this -- bill.
This isn't a huge entitlement at a time when we're facing potentially another.
Another recession when.
Extending this kind of insurance to more and more and more people is ultimately going to be on the back of the taxpayer because of all -- subsidies that are occurring at the state exchanges.
You know and and people are Google and -- -- employer based insurance and go to the state exchanges.
And have to pay out of pocket for individual health care get subsidized by the taxpayer dollar a huge cost.
And by some estimates and we talked about this last week we're talking about.
15 of the gross domestic product -- 21 years over four trillion.
