Thanks To ObamaCare, Happy Dances Are Here Again

Sharing my Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) recent Happy Dance re: No rate increases for my medical plan for 2015, dental rate decreased, while the Benefit Maximum more than doubled, yea!!). in the last 3 months, I have had a flu shot, a mammogram, and a blood test, all without co-pays. My yearly dental X-Rays scheduled for December is also without any other costs. Finally, the one medication that I take is only 1.81 $ for a month’s supply. When I retired in the summer of 2013, my biggest financial concern was the cost of health care (I am under 65 and single) that I would be directly responsible for for the first time (it was an employee benefit prior to this). It has been manageable so far, thanks, in part, to the ACA. When I received the news that there would be no rate increases for 2015, I was greatly relieved. I love Obamacare and the man who brought it to us. I am always so tickled that the term that the GOPers used as a pejorative, has instead insured that PBO would forever get credit for this law that has begun to transform the health and well-being of our nation.

GIFs Are Fun. Accidents Aren’t. Get Covered.

Everyone loves a good deal. About 6 in 10 uninsured individuals could pay $100 or less per month for coverage, thanks to tax credits to help them buy a private health plan through the Marketplace or because they are now eligible for Medicaid. And nearly half of single young adults who are uninsured can get coverage for $50 or less in 2014. That could be less than your cell phone bill.

Vice President Biden’s got a reputation for always meaning what he says — especially about health care. But as the Vice President likes to point out, for 100 years — since Teddy Roosevelt was President — we’ve been trying to make health care more accessible and affordable in America. Well, we’re getting it done right now, and that’s a big deal. Now we’ve got to finish what we started.

Joshua Axelrod: Obama’s 10 Funniest Moments With Galifianakis

It was only a matter of time before Funny or Die’s “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis” landed a high-profile interview subject. No, not small potatoes like Justin Bieber, James Franco or Jennifer Lawrence. They were all just warm-ups for the guest of the century: President Barack Obama, who took a break from running the free world to take on Galifianakis’s hard-hitting and inappropriate interviewer.

For once, it was Galifianakis who couldn’t take the heat. Every barb he threw the president’s way (“What’s it like to be the last black president?”) was returned with a healthy dose of snark from the usually stoic Obama (“What’s it like for this to be the last time you ever talk to a president?”).

TPM: Obama’s Funny-Or-Die Appearance Driving Top Traffic To HealthCare.gov

President Barack Obama’s appearance with actor Zach Galifianakis on FunnyOrDie.com has made the website the top referrer to HealthCare.gov Tuesday, a White House official said. Tara McGuinness, a senior communications adviser who focuses on Obamacare, tweeted the news. The plug was the point of the interview, for which Galifianakis knowingly chided Obama. “Have you heard about HealthCare.gov?” Obama asked after Galifianakis inquired about his online browsing habits.

“Okay, here we go,” the actor lamented. “Let’s get this out of the way. What’d you come here to plug?” “I think it’s fair to say I wouldn’t be here with you if I didn’t have something to plug,” Obama cracked before touting Obamacare and its website. At the end of the video, a link to HealthCare.gov flashes on the screen. The video has been viewed nearly three million times, according to FunnyOrDie.com’s stats.

White House: Twenty Reasons To Get Covered, Twenty Days Left To Enroll

As of today, there are just 20 days left to enroll in health care coverage at healthcare.gov before open enrollment ends on March 31. If don’t already have health insurance, head over to healthcare.gov to get covered now. You can compare your options based on price, benefits, quality and other features, and enroll in a plan that fits your needs and your budget. Six in ten uninsured Americans can get coverage for less than $100 a month. Preventive services like well-woman visits, cancer screenings, flu shots and more cost you nothing out of pocket. Health insurers are prohibited from charging women more than men for the exact same coverage.

It’s illegal for insurance companies to charge more or deny coverage due to a pre-existing condition.Birth control for women is covered with no out-of-pocket costs or co-pays. Insurance companies can’t cancel your coverage when you get sick. All plans must cover essential health benefits including outpatient care, hospital visits, prescriptions, and more. Because accidents happen, and no one is invincible.  You can apply for coverage online at healthcare.gov. on the phone by calling 1-800-318-2596, in person (find local help here) or by mail (download the application to mail in here) — the whole process takes most people about 15 to 20 minutes.
