Medicare has Highest Claim Rejection rate, Usually Twice the Rate of Private Insurance

Obama and the Democrats' plan is essentially to expand Medicare to cover all Americans. He falsely claims he wants to do this because insurance companies reject too many claims. But it turns out Medicare actually has the highest rejection claim rate. (Not a surprise to anyone who works with Medicare).

Don't expect the media to report this.

  2. This shouldn't come as a surprise. Now the WH is talking about an option that would reimburse doctors 5% more than Medicare to get their support. If we have learned anything from government reimbursement, it's that Medicare reimbursements will be further reduced, as usual, and this new option will simply reimburse at the original rate, not the gracious 5% (note sarcasm) that they're promising us. I feel like a dog where the government is waving a dirty scrap of food in front of my face to try to get me to go along with them. The fact that they have been working so hard to win over doctors (in a health care debate for heaven's sake!)should be a red flag!
