Consumers more afraid of medical bills than an actual illness

As health care costs keep rising, more people seem to be skipping physician visits.

It's not fear of doctors, however, but more of a phobia about the bills that could follow. Higher deductibles and out-of-network fees are just some of the out-of-pocket costs that can hit a consumer's pockets.

U.S. health care costs keep rising, and hit more than $10,000 a year per person in 2016. According to a recent national poll, over the past 12 months, 44 percent of Americans said they didn't go to the doctor when they were sick or injured because of financial concerns. Meanwhile, 40 percent said they skipped a recommended medical test or treatment. ...

A Texas evangelist preacher and member of Donald Trump’s faith advisory council told parishioners to skip the flu shot in favor of prayer, inviting scorn from concerned medical professionals and epidemiologists.

“Jesus himself gave us the flu shot,” Gloria Copeland said in a video posted last Wednesday that has slowly begun to go viral, no pun intended, after some observers highlighted Copeland’s ties to Trump.

Ugh...wasn't that something? Smells like a Muslim attack again. White skinned, but that doesn't mean anything anymore.

We forage as a family and even have our own Etsy store where we sell our herbs and such. It's phenomenal to see the amounts of nutrients in weeds! They far out-perform anything in the grocery stores. And it's all there for the taking, just as God decreed.

We know a lot of folks who are afraid to see a doctor but neither the diagnosis not the bill are the reason. They don't trust the doctors, who don't provide much but another prescription of maintenance medications. Nothing gets healed anymore, just maintained. Obamacare made it worse.
When revenue overprioritizes healing, there's a problem. And the health food stores, essential oil peddlers, and vitamin sellers are raking it in right now as a result. Is it any wonder that no one really trusts anyone he or she doesn't know very well?
Just more evidence that truth lies stone cold dead in the streets.
A doctor friend told my wife and I once: "When we leave medical school, our teachers tell us, '50% of what we have taught you is wrong. Problem is, we don't know which 50% it is yet.'"

Yikes...yeah like I'm trusting any medical professional for anything. Learn to live and eat healthy and you'll cancel out a good portion of your problems and potential problems.

Romney shouldn't have separated himself from his own, well partly his own, invention.

As The Washington Post article point it out Tim Obamacare may even last longer because of Republican vote on it. They just made it unaffordable for thousands of people that's all. 👎 when the Democrats gain enough control of the government again, they will fix that at least.👍.

Unfortunately, of course they will fix other things that don't need fixing. For example, the Democratic candidate for Congress in the Omaha area, may very well regain his seat, and he is pro-abortion.

Yep! Even when Romney proposed it when he was governor.

Wayfarer Pilgrim, I guess I should have made those links a little easier for people to see if there are using mobile devices in the Paul Kruger article. From Pew research:
John Gramlich wrote:
President Donald Trump’s first budget request to Congress would make deep cuts to government programs, including Medicaid, the health insurance program for low-income adults and children. Recent polls have found little public support for cuts to Medicaid, but that may not be a surprise: Americans tend not to favor budget cuts when asked about specific areas being affected.

Yes, Wayfarer Pilgrim, we should have had something better than ACA, we should have copied Australia [URL=http://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-us-canada-39826777/is-trump-right-about-australian-healthcare]]]http://tinyurl.com/n4bpr8t (Is Trump right about Australian healthcare?)[/URL]--Yes❗

Paul Krugman is so last decade, as is the ACA. We paid more because the government and insurance companies decided we , meaning people who are married and can biologically reproduce, had more expendable income than they should, and decided we , the workers, needed to pay more for less. If you are single, no children, then the ACA was just fine for you. But if not, Obamacare is a revulsion of tax increase without representation.
I spent last weekend in the ER with my father. He has insurance, but the 100 or so people wandering aimlessly in the waiting room did not. And these people, would never sign up for Obamacare because going to the er is what they’ve done for decades. We are still paying for millions of people who simply are not qualified to scratch their heads let alone be responsible.

People do not like what the Republicans did to Obamacare
Andy Slavitt wrote:
....In a larger sense, the Republicans’ rhetorical victory of cutting out the individual mandate will make the ACA — which is increasingly popular — even more popular. The individual mandate was the only aspect of the law that didn’t enjoy wide support among the public. The other components of the law — protecting preexisting conditions, ending lifetime caps, ensuring that certain benefits such as chemotherapy and mental health are covered by law — enjoy widespread popularity.

A more popular law will be a more challenging target to repeal....
