Comment: Hey Bros and Bro-esses, Obamacare makes it easy for everyone to pay outrageous hospital fees! What better way to save money on healthcare? How better to say “chop yer gnarly prices, dude!” than to stuff those hospitals’ mouths with gold from…you guessed it–you. Forget honest competition, that’s Obamacare’s “gold” plan–taking your gold is the plan!
“Alex Stevens, a dishwasher at an Austin pizzeria, got covered this year and said he’s planning to re-enroll. A skateboarding enthusiast in his late 20s, Stevens broke a leg skating with friends this summer. It was a bad break and he had major surgery the next day. But his insurance paid most of the $55,000 bill, and he only owed $750. “
“ “My mom said she was glad that I have insurance,” said Stevens. “
Hey Skateboarder Dude, tell yer mom we’re glad too. It’s so awesome we’re enablin’ late 20-something skateboarders to overspend buckets and buckets of everyone else’s premiums on over-priced care. NOT!
Seriously, Dude, next time you wipe out doing something amazing, try the Surgery Center of Oklahoma–they’re better, faster and their price for a complex fracture is $6,375 (and you wouldn’t have to soak everyone else for the rest). Even better, at the SC of OK they work for you, not for some government flunkies who call the shots (but don’t give a hoot about your broken limb). Cowabunga!
