Leave you stranded before you stick a syringe and -- help is on the way to doctor Marc Siegel was a very handy tips to keep your -- from pushing you over.
The it's done that see through the cereals.
It's all about just sort understanding what kind of policy -- and how you can take advantage ranked.
Absolutely as Michael -- was saying the premiums are gonna sore.
And one of the reasons he didn't mention is that Obama -- is gonna limit your deductibles and co pays meaning you're not allowed to have a high deductible policy.
Those are not going to be offered on the exchanges so I'm telling people get those policies now if you're helping.
And you don't need to use your insurance because that's one of the -- here that just somehow have to use health insurance every day.
When insurance itself is for a rainy day so if you're healthy.
Or you're young I say get a policy now with a high deductible pay a lower premium and hopefully you can hang on to that policy that's my first here.
All right but -- you talk about health savings accounts on a lot of people probably do -- -- tax advantage take advantage right.
Absolutely -- now Obama has been -- limit that to 2500 dollars which -- don't like but a lot of people that have them aren't using them properly now.
So I say news that 2500 of those properly it's a tax break.
You should use -- -- -- what I call non essential services if you're not sick.
Figure out and advance start now what can -- use my health sings what needs of African music just prescription non you can lose -- driver description you can use -- -- trips to the doctor when you're not sick you can use it for what I call nonessential services to be going into the hospital.
You want your health insurance -- -- and if you're not in the hospital you probably can use your health savings account -- your flex spending account now a lot of it is just.
Just common sense to talking to guys are you talking to your doctor wouldn't be surprised so many people don't.
Ask your doctor are you going to take obamacare type insurance.
Are you gonna take Medicare and Medicaid is -- is sixteen million more people half of the doctors in the country are not taking Medicaid.
I -- -- a lot of your colleagues aren't dealing with insurance at all -- just -- -- -- -- Think yes and you've sorted.
But -- you might be able to say don't how much will you take seriously you can have a negotiation before you command and -- Here's your bill it says 400 dollars but maybe you would see me for 200 dollars.
Doctors love -- these days because we're being so restricted.
What are they cut back on the -- never knows my doctor before -- -- aren't cheap skate you know you're gonna get half the quality.
But giving it that is the long -- the -- you and I both know that you don't want -- out of my doctor's name is doctor bombastic.
All right another he's say take advantage of just the and said it plans that are out there what does that mean.
Because real preventive care again is not what Obama care services it occurs by getting your blood pressure down before you get sick.
Getting your weight off before you have an obesity related problem making sure your sugars under control learning to exercise.
All of that and stopping smoking all of that.
Can be done also by the employer who may give -- a little extra in your paycheck.
Some of that is written into obamacare not enough I like the idea of employers giving incentives for employees that do healthier things like stopping smoking like exercising.
But a lot of large companies don't distinguish right I mean so if you you don't have that.
What do you do.
Well -- it sucks some companies are starting to the state I got and they should start to distinguish smoking is number one on the list and then weight loss.
But that you don't have to rely on your employer for that I'm telling people out there to do it on their own you'll feel better and you'll save on medical costs.
But surely you've known stick -- people.
-- Neil -- -- okay are as far as being like ours is trying to get it'd be a little audio though it's -- should -- really it.
Just the doughnuts on the on the -- and let me ask you about this a new push it where was your doctors are seeing -- -- at the same time.
I know that saves and I had its image of bunch of people -- dressed like in a room together.
They all say it -- ears -- But you're seeing a lot of crazy stuff like this what is going -- We're -- good surgeon will always tell you they don't -- -- be operating in two rooms at once and the same is true with a non surge and unfortunately we're going towards a team approach.
More nurse practitioners involved more nurses more staff make in the phone calls for your secretaries delivering the bad news as well as the -- There's -- exact a terrible call -- I think O'Donnell camp well let's hope not wow let's hope not but we're moving the direction of more teams that can be good.
But it can also be bad I am totally against the idea of a position seeing more than one patient at the same time I -- be clear on that.
Your physician has to stay involved.
Let physicians remember why they went into this in the first was no matter how much they're cut -- they're saying they can't afford to be in practice than they shouldn't be you cannot see two patients at the same time.
-- Thought -- was missing.
We have some -- -- for him and every.
Thanks -- in the meat.
