Just the Beginning
By Tom in NC
Working in the healthcare field, I am finding out a little at a time the complete idiocy of Obamacare.
Today at our monthly staff meeting in our office, we found out that starting in 2011, patients who use Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) or Health Savings Accounts to buy OTC (Over The Counter) medications will be required to obtain a prescription from their doctor. In other words if you want to use your FSA to buy, say, Tylenol or Nyquil or just plain Aspirin, you will need to make an appointment with your doctor, pay the copay, get a prescription, and then go and buy the OTC medication. The alternative is not use your RSA and just pay for the med yourself.
This is just the beginning of this lunatic government healthcare debacle. One way or another it is going to cost us — in cash, convenience, or our health — all the while stripping us of our freedoms.
Thank you, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and every Congresscritter who made this monstrosity into law. You POS have succeeded in further wrecking our country.
