  • Mark Cuban Takes Shot At Fixing Healthcare

    Huh, send more money to the govt and allow them to take control of all healthcare. What a unique concept.

      Here's how the government runs healthcare:

      I have a friend who is diabetic, retired military and on Tricare (the government's version of health insurance which is arguably, one of the best insurance plans to have).
      In the last year he has been denied coverage on 3 different diabetic medications which he has been taking for years and which have been covered. He has had to switch to less effective medications and suffer the effects of high blood sugar to prove he needs the effective medications to control his diabetes. Only then will they fill his prescriptions for the same medication he has been on for years.

        Brilliant. Then healthcare in the US would be as good as our education system.

          Damn, The UJ front page headline only said Mark Cuban takes Shot, I was hoping Trump was dead.

          50 days held hostage by a madman leads to wild hopes.

              I am embarrassed every day by his actions. I can't believe this snake oil salesman won or that Hillary was so widely hated.

              thanks dm

                  I'm not seeing a difference from private healthcare here, except that you probably won't have to sue the gov't to get them to approve the previous medication when need is proven.

                    The private healthcare probably would not have covered the medication in the first place.

                      Dems laughed at the quote about healthcare being complicated.
                      Now they are turning to a guy with exceptionally limited healthcare industry experience to provide a simple solution.
                      That's sweet.

                        How did you determine Tricare is one of the best insurance plans to have?

                          Who is going to Mark Cuban? He's coming out with a plan that has no authority or affect on law. No one is turning to him.

                            Do you not know what the term "arguably" means?

                              my first impression of Kaiser is that it absolutely rocks. allergy meds @ on-site pharmacy in fewer than 5 minutes.
