My Family Doctor told me a story today that will interest many people.
The Medical group/clinic (or whatever you want to call it) that My Doc works for had a visit from an Attorney in the last couple of days. The Attorney was there to give some non-binding legal advice during a seminar about what's happening in the near future directly concerning the new Obamacare law.
Because my Doc doesn't want to get sued, I had to play charades just to get the slightest hint of what he was talking about. Here's what he didn't say... It looks like patients that take legally prescribed pain medicines will be cut-off by Obamacare in the very near future. The best I can discern, it has something to do with what are regarded as "Long Term" and "Short Term" use. This came up because I myself take a pain medication and the Doc is trying to get me to 'come to terms' so to speak with my legal drug use. Just so you know... I'm on them because I was in a bad accident where my head was split open, shoulder crushed, and vertebraes in both my neck and my back were broken. It's the type of injury that will cause pain the rest of my life.
I did come right out and ask him if this had anything to do with Obamacare and he would only say... "I would rather not say". Understanding his situation I did not push him. However, I'm just as concerned as the next person would be, if this turns out to be true. He said that it is too early for him to know when this will happen, but he would keep me advised.
I see my Doc every other month so I will keep everyone up to date as to any changes. It would be nice if others here at PFA start hearing the same thing so please share info with all of us. As you can imagine, something like this is going to freak-out an awful lot of people if it turns out to be 100% legit. There are many people that are on legal pain killers for one medical reason or another and cannot function somewhat normally without something that takes off the edge. People in this situation will understand what I'm taking about. This has the potential to really P-OFF an awful lot of people towards Obamacare.
Look for updates from me and please share if you hear any more about this. Thanks and good luck!
