Death Panel

I was in the car and heard this below discussed by patient advocate Betsy McCaughey of Defend Your Healthcare on Mark Levin's radio show tonight. So, I looked it up. From pages 148 - 149 of the Senate health care bill, here it is folks. A "qualified health plan" means any health insurance plan in the US, including private plans most now currently employ. Well, except for our elected officials in DC, of course. They will get to make their own health care decisions. But not you, or your doctor.

Beginning on January 1, 2015, a qualified health plan may contract with—

(B) a health care provider only if such provider implements such mechanisms to improve health care quality as the Secretary may by regulation require.

In plain English, any decision you, or your doctor, might make as regards your personal health care can and likely will ultimately have been pre-determined by Washington, DC.
