Our Benjamin Domenech explained on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze TV the other day how you need to find a primary-care physician — and a young one — and find him now. [Video below the fold.] Obamacare is going to change our health care system for the worse, as Ben has covered extensively on the health section of Heartland’s digital magazine, the Heartlander.
Watch Ben dominate this panel discussion with his well-informed insight below. A quick synopsis of the coming “Docopalypse.” In short: Obamacare is a system “not designed to work,” but to cause the current health care system to collapse and create a single-payer, government-run health system. And Ben predicts the system will collapse a lot faster than many think.
Bad advice? Investing in your HSAs. Under Obamacare, they will become “less attractive” and useful to you because many of their useful features are becoming “outlawed” under Obamacare — such as the ban on using them to pay for over-the-counter drugs. Good advice? Get familiar with “medical tourism.” Ben notes that Costa Rica is an up-and-comer.
