Doctors aren't being paid. Denying Service to state employees.

Now, some doctors in southern Illinois are limiting services for patients employed by the state or is asking those patients to pay up front.

It is a vicious cycle. The state isn't paying the insurance companies, so insurance companies aren't paying doctors, and the doctors are forced to make changes some families don't like.

Those who are in favor of the Health Care Bill, please explain how the Democrats Health Care Plan will improve situations like this?

  • The doctor said Ashley's insurance provider wasn't paying its bills. Ashley doesn't know how to fight back.


    "We can't go after the doctors, they're not being paid. We can't go after the insurance company, they're not being paid. But how do we fight the state?" she asks.


    At one nearby doctor's office, they're now requesting state employees pay out of pocket to later be reimbursed.

  • It's a vicious cycle. The doctors have to pay the rent and the salaries of their staff. They can't work for free, even if they wanted to.

    The state of Illinois is the one at fault. Why aren't they paying the bill for their staff's insurance?

  • I doubt anyone here knows that exact answer.


    So asking a question to those who are in favor of the Health Care Bill doesn't sit well with you?

  • IF the HCR was your primary interest why did you tack it on at the end of your question? It appears that your primary question is re the Doctors not getting paid, right?


     I'm sure you have filed away the names of the ladies on here who supported the particular HCR bill that was passed. How about you PM them with your question?

  • Why does every question need to have a negative slant grly? Unless you like stirring the pot? Are you one of those bored HS kids without any friends? Your games are thinly veiled.

  • Sister, those who support the bill should be able to explain how ObamaCare will make Illinois state employees better off than they are now... I asked a question... I would love to hear a logical answer to how they will be better off with ObamaCare...  Even though states are required to pay MORE Federal Mandates.....  You don't like the question? Then don't answer it... ;o)
