THREAD. How much does treating a serious case of #COVID cost? Here’s a (partial) figure.

First, a pleasant surprise regarding #HealthInsurance - how often does that happen? My insurer, @UHC, has waived cost-sharing for #COVID19 TREATMENT (not just testing):
I logged into @UHC today and found a slew of Explanations of Benefits (EOBs) with a nominal total cost of more than $320,000 for my #COVID19 hospitalization. Bills are still coming in, so that’s not a final figure.

#coronavirus #Covid_19 #COVID #healthcare
But under “You May Owe” on the EOBs, I saw $0, $0, $0 - i.e., @UHC isn’t hitting me with any co-pays for #Covid19 treatment. I was prepared/expecting to shell out my out-of-pocket max ($6,000 in-network, $12,000 out-of-network).

Being financially responsible is important for your health and your financial life. To "live within your means" means that what you spend each month is less than or at least equal to the amount of money you bring in each month. For many people, it’s a lot easier said than done.📌
Credit cards, loans, savings, and even emergency funds allow you to buy more things than your income would ordinarily allow. Unfortunately, that kind of lifestyle isn’t sustainable and, at some point, your reckless spending will catch up to you. #financialliteracy
Your savings and access to credit will run out and when that happens, you’ll be forced to make some important changes or face financial ruin. #financialliteracy

#HealthInsurance #Bancassurance #AyushmanBharat Having worked in Insurance and Health Insurance, let me share my views. a. Bancassurance - Taking a Mediclaim / Health Insurance policy through your Bank is good if your concern is only regarding premium.
Health Insurance through Banks is inexpensive, which is good. However, service can be an "iffy" thing. Bankers don't have their own Insurance company, their service can take a hit when their alliance with Insurers break down.
And there are always chances that the data of customer with the bank is not clean; that "dirty" data passes onto the Insurance company which will lie low till a claim arises.

#Hahnemann is a cautionary tale of for-profit companies plundering a #SafetyNetHospital for a land deal. After speaking with several former physician trainees and the Internal Medicine PD @DaveAizenberg. The stories were disheartening. We must do better. #HahnemannStories 1/
#Hahnemann #tweetorial-In all the talk of policy changes and corporate malfeasance, the personal impact cannot be undersold. One story that needs to be shared is that of Erika Correa (permission given to share her experience). #HahnemannStories #medtwitter #MembersMoveMedicine 2/
Dr. Correa was starting #HemeOnc fellowship orientation at #Hahnemann when the closure was announced on June 26. She was suddenly without a program, funding, or health insurance. She had bought a house in Philadelphia, planning to stay at least 3 more years. #medtwitter 3/

Last week or so, I came across a viral voicenote of a guy who was bitterly complaining about his experience at @ColdstoneNG and I couldn't help but weep because that shit has happened to me before.

Shared it with @UcheBriggs but I have to share it again with you guys.

THREAD!!!
A month after I finished NYSC, I got my first job as a content and social media manager at an IT firm in Ikeja.

It was a challenging job and all because I was new to it but I was glad as it was my first attempt at real employment.

I was hyped and ready to challenge myself!
The salary was not rich but I was contented because, after all, this was my first job and it was an upgrade from earning 19,800 from NYSC.

It was not enough but ka saa ma dupe. So many people out there without jobs. Let me manage my change like that biko, e go better one day.

#ElizabethWarren's bill reminds me of Romney's advice to youths in 4/2012, "Borrow money, if you have to, from your parents. Start a business... [Jimmy John Liautaud] borrowed $20K from his dad..."

The loan was c. 7/82 and was actually $25K.
$25K in 7/82 = $59K in 4/12
#Warren
In the first half of 2019, the nat'l average #rent increased by 2.6%.

Warren declined to be interviewed for this story. In May, at request of media, her campaign released a summary of her outside work. As a senatorial candidate, Warren released a shorter version, which omitted her work for Dow Chemical.

76 yr old Mom needs help gofundme.com/76-yr-old-mom-…
In 2011 I was bitten by a tick. I have a brain tumor/IIH & such severe intestinal damage that I CANNOT digest food w/out enteral food RX. It's $198/wk, even w/pharma discount. My (now) 77-year-old Mom is my caregiver but she can't afford it. Don't have enough to eat/save 🏡. 😭
I contracted E
Chaffeensis, Rickettsia of unknown etiology, & #LymeDisease. I just had 8th spinal tap to relieve pressure on my brain.
I'd been on antibiotics for 19 yrs.
I caught Coxsackie B4 virus-a cousin of polio. Lost most use of (L) side.
I wasn't treated for 11 mos. #Lyme

Lies.
The column--WHICH TRUMP DID NOT WRITE--included many lies.
Trump has done everything possible--with the help of @SpeakerRyan and @senatemajldr McConnell--to eviscerate #ACA and steal affordable #healthcare from millions of Americans, including sick children.
Trump ran on overturning #Obamacare--which millions of his supporters did not realize was #ACA that allowed them to get affordable #healthcare through their insurance provider and protected them and their kids who had #PreExistingConditions.
Trump tried to repeal #ACA but failed.
So he stopped making payments to statewide subsidy programs, cutting off #healthcare to millions.
He also cut #CHIP, created by #HillaryClinton, which provided millions of kids with health insurance.

If you, like me, cannot point to a single thing @RepFrenchHill has done for the benefit of his constituents in #AR2 then you owe it to yourself and everyone else in the seven county area to vote for @clarketucker this November. #arpx #Vote #Midterms2018
.@RepFrenchHill has voted to end coverage for pre-existing conditions. He doesn't care whether or not you can afford to see a doctor, or even if your health insurance will cover a visit. He does not care about #Arkansans #AR2 #ByeFrench #VoteThemOut #arpx
.@RepFrenchHill supports @realDonaldTrump #ConcentrationCamps for migrant children, infants, and toddlers. He refuses to speak up about these egregious #HumanRights violations. #Arkansas deserves a better, more humane representative in #AR2 - @clarketucker is that person! #Vote

I'll be trying to avoid @UHC for the rest of my life, or until we get single payer. Here's a brief description of a terrible experience that really isn't that bad in the grand scheme of things.
I was on UHC, had no problems, then got a new job and extended it for one month with COBRA. Hurt my knee (I was on crutches for two months) and paid out of pocket to cover an MRI, bc doc's office didn't have my new card, couldn't run it. I paid knowing I was in-network.
They sent a claim denial to my doctor (not me, as they should have, since I filed the claim). They needed diagnosis codes. I went in person to the doc, got them, and called them in. They refused to accept them from me.
