"Now, this is what I want each of you to understand, please read these next sentences carefully. The doctor finally came in to emeregency room to inform me that he was going to admit me. I said, "are you admitting me for treatment or for observation?" He told me that I would be admitted for observation. I said Doctor, correct me if I'm wrong, but if you admit me for observation my Medicare will not pay anything, this due to the affordable care act, he said that's right, it won't. I then grabbed for my bag of clothing and said, I'm going home. He said you're really too sick to be going home, but I understand your position, this health program is going to hit seniors especially hard. The doctor then left the room and I started getting dressed, I was just getting ready to put my shoes on when another doctor (the closer) came into the room, he saw me dressed and said, "where do you think you are going?" I simply said "I'm going home, to which he replied, quite vociferously, no you aren't. I said, "Doc, you and I both know that under the "affordable care act" anyone on Medicare who is admitted to a hospital for observation will be responsible for the bill, Medicare won't pay a cent". At which point he nodded in affirmation. I said, "You will either admit me for a specific treatment or you won't admit me." Realizing he wasn't going to win this one, he said he would prepare my release papers. A few minutes later the discharge nurse came to my room to have me sign the necessary papers, relieving them from any responsibility. I told her I wasn't trying to be obstinate, but I wasn't going to be burdened with the full (financial) responsibility for my hospital stay. After making sure the door was closed, she said, "I don't blame you at all, I would do the same thing." She went on to say, "You wouldn't believe the people who elect to leave for the same reasons, people who are deathly sick, people who have to be wheeled out on a gurney." She further said, "The 'Affordable Care Act' is going to be a disaster for seniors. "

SOURCE: Will the Medicare age change to 76 if HB3200 goes into effect?

H.R.3200 from 2009 never got off the floor of the House so none of its provisions apply to Medicare or anywhere else. It isn't the Affordable Care Act that actually got signed by the president. The bill that passed was H.R. 3590. There isn't another H.R. 3200 with changes for Medicare in Congress.

I hope this helps.

Why was Maggie in the doctor's office in the final episode?


In the series finale, Maggie is in the waiting room of a physician when Ruth calls her to ask about Nate in his final moments. This has led to speculation by some that she might have been pregnant by Nate at the time, and visiting the doctor for a checkup or an abortion, but this is not the case. Remember that Maggie is a pharmaceutical representative, and her job is to go to doctor's offices and make calls. If you look at her attire, she is dressed in a business suit, and she has a large sample bag with her. When the nurse calls her back, it is not for an appointment, but rather because the doctor has made time to see Maggie in a professional capacity to discuss her products. Despite this evidence, there have still been some doubters; however, Alan Ball confirms in his commentary that Maggie was not pregnant and was only in the waiting room because she was working.
