Health Care – How Important is It?

???? Our government has plenty of money to bail out Wall Street. They have plenty of money to bail out banks and plenty of money to bail out our automotive industry. How about our priorities when it comes to home care?? Right now the government is cutting benefits for home care patients.? They now have a 36 month cap on oxygen therapy patients. Our government is putting health care providers out of business when they should be making it easier for them to provide good service to patients that need home care.? There would be plenty of money saved if they would help home care companies instead patients have to go to nursing homes and hospitals to get better care.? Going to a facility would be a lot more expensive than letting a patient stay at home and get there health care.? Hopefully someone in a high position will realize that soon before it is too late.?

???? Rumor has it that all the home care providers are making money hand over fist, when the truth of the matter is the can hardly stay in business with all the new rulings.? Health care prices are coming down rather than going up.? Manufacturers are producing products such as scooters, wheel chairs, and oxygen concentrators and getting less money for them.? Physicians need to see as many patients as they can in a day to make what they used to make.? Nursing homes and hospitals are not making it and going under.?

???? If we do not make some changes, patients are going to be treated by the cheapest home care companies, the cheapest doctors and cheapest hospitals. When it comes to our health do we really want cheap?? I don’t think so.? We need to speak up and let D.C. know what we want. That should be money spent on health care not on wars and bailing out corporations that were not managed correctly.? Its our money, lets make sure it is spent the right way. Patients needing home health equipment such as home oxygen concentrators, scooters, wheel chairs, and other durable medical equipment worked hard paying there money in taxes to be taken care of when they needed it.? It is only fair that they end up with only the best home health care they can get.
