I also have BCBS as well as medicare, the way I understand it, is nothing will change untill after 2014, all of the safety nets will still be in-place (for those who meet the income requirements) RW & ADAP might change after 2014  ;)

The high risk pool here in Missouri is vague about your cost...it says from 199 to 600.00 per month plus co-pays and limits on meds.  Only specific ones will be paid for as anything else is considered not necessary for treatment. It has a one million life time cap but does not say what would happen if for some strange reason you hit the cap. 

Now that tells me no knows what is really going on.  My doctor said the only thing I know is that you probably will not be any worse off than you already are.

How do you suddenly come up with 600.00 per month plus co-pays on everything when you make just enough to get by?

it depends on what you mean by "just enough to get by".

Many states already offer ADAP help to those making 3X FPL. Those people will probably be enfolded into state medicaid programs to receive their medications, similar to how the current medicaid waiver 1115 allows people to have access to prescriptions for daily medications w/o any other healthcare services. The AHA also has provisions, as in vouchers, to help people under certain financial limitations purchase health care insurance. Additionally, pharmaceutical companies are already offering co-pay assistance to help purchase medications.

also as to the math of your query, that possible 600 a month figure should probably be minus whatever a person is currently paying for their health care before entering into the high risk pool, so it wouldn't be a jump from nothing to $600 but more likely a jump from $200+ to something higher. ;)

If you die how can we remember you by such words?  You won't be here and you won't be alive.

Pity, who's going to take care of murdering every imaginable rule of grammar, orthography, and punctuation once you've kicked the bucket?  That damned Obama will be to blame for this as well!!!

Please take your pills and visit a mental health specialist, stat.  kthxbi!!!1  :P

If you're not going to take your meds, please donate them to your local ASO so others can benefit.

Short,

If you believe the US federal government is monitoring these threads, you may consider that you have had a break with reality.  I'm not sure, but it seems you are questioning something Ann said and declaring it to be false with no reference whatsoever.  Seriously, you need to learn how to communicate in the written word, because right now, you just sound crazy.
