If you wonder about the intelligence, or lack thereof,

of a typical rightwingnut, just check out this Facebook post from a Nebraska FOXSheep. BTW, he got dozens of responses telling him he's full of shit, BUT, many of his ilk actually believe this crap and regurgitate it. I'd have told him myself, if I Facebooked. (Carol does and showed it to me).

Went to the doctor today for a checkup. Having problems with my feet and many questions about general and mental health. The doctor, (a Repub rightwingnut, FOXBeliever) told me that Medicare doesn't pay for yearly physicals (How about Wellness Visits?) anymore nor for any preventative medicine for seniors. I asked, since when? He told me that since Obama took away these features for older citizens since they are near the end of their lives they aren't productive citizens any longer and if they want preventative care they would have to pay for it themselves (WTF?)
Obama was betting on many not being able to afford a yearly checkup, or didn't want to spend the money, and would let their health slide ending in shorter lives and less needed coverage for the insurance companies to cover. A high percentage of insurance payouts are for older citizens. If Obama could find a way to let them die his plan would be more affordable to the rest of the population. How many older people voted for Trump not knowing how corrupt he was? How many people voted for Trump out of ignorance because of the lying media? Answer: All of them.
BTW, the Dr said my mental health was 'terrible', as well as my retention of 'facts', but typical for a Rightwingnut, who gets their 'news' from FOX.
Comments in BLUE, are mine, and the following is from Medicare.gov,

  • A "Welcome to Medicare" preventive visit: You can get this introductory visit within the first 12 months you have Part B. This visit includes a review of your medical and social history related to your health and education and counseling about preventive services, including these:
    • Certain screenings, shots, and referrals for other care, if needed
    • Height, weight, and blood pressure measurements
    • A calculation of your body mass index
    • A simple vision test
    • A review of your potential risk for depression and your level of safety
    • An offer to talk with you about creating advance directives.
    • A written plan letting you know which screenings, shots, and other preventive services you need.Get details about coverage for screenings, shots, and other preventive services.
You don’t need to have this visit to be covered for yearly "Wellness" visits.

  • Yearly "Wellness" visits: If you've had Part B for longer than 12 months, you can get this visit to develop or update a personalized prevention help plan. This plan is designed to help prevent disease and disability based on your current health and risk factors. Your provider will ask you to fill out a questionnaire, called a “Health Risk Assessment,” as part of this visit. Answering these questions can help you and your provider develop a personalized prevention plan to help you stay healthy and get the most out of your visit. It can also include:
  • This visit is covered once every 12 months, unless your name is Harold and you believe FOXCrap, then you just get UNLIMITED prostate inspections, from your fellow rightwingnut Dr. BUT, I've heard Harold is abusing the privilege with several visits per day.
