The Obama administration has given the go-ahead for insurers and employers to use a new cost-control strategy that puts a hard dollar limit on what health plans pay for some expensive procedures, such as knee and hip replacements.
This means you are going to get a surprise medical bill that you have to pay yourself. Not just under Obamacare, but also under job-based coverage.
Hard dollar limit translates into regular street language as "go home and die."
Told you so.
