Oklahoma Man Has Over $100K In Hospital Bills 'After Losing Health Plan Due To ObamaCare' (Video)Topics: Political News and commentaries
Surely this Obamacare 'horror story' is just another one of those "lies" Harry Reid accused the Koch brothers of spreading, right?
On the other hand, maybe KLII-Tx and The Washington Free Beacon are also lying ...
Via The Free Beacon:
An Oklahoma man is facing over $100,000 in hospital bills because he lost his health insurance plan due to Obamacare.Although I'd love to hit Obama with the full blame for this tragedy, there's more to the story than it just being Obamacare's fault. According to the TV station report the employer chose to drop the spousal insurance coverage (likely because of the premiums rising above the employer's ability to cover).Then it appears that the hospitals failed to treat his problem to the extent that the condition became aggravated and his lung had to be partially removed. Then there's that not so little matter of the governor refusing to accept Medicaid extensions. In other words, this huge medical mess is not entirely Obamacare's fault, but Obamacare sure as hell played a huge part in it.
Lenny Hubbs, a "healthy man," as his wife describes him, is a self-employed contractor who was previously on his wife's health insurance plan. Her employer announced that his employees would no longer be allowed to pay for their spouses' premiums.
They could not afford to purchase health insurance. Lenny's wife told KXII-TX that "good" health insurance would have cost them $500 a month. They do not qualify for Medicaid.
Hubbs became sick about two weeks ago. Doctors told him his lungs were filling with blood and diagnosed him with Pneumonia.
He visited two hospitals to seek treatment. The Hubbs allege that he did not receive proper treatment at either hospital because they were uninsured. He had to have part of his lung removed and now are stuck with upwards of $100,000 in hospital bills.
