this would fall under health care changes:



Health care providers announced more layoffs than any other industry last month — 8,128 — largely because of reductions by hospitals, according to outplacement firm Challenger Gray and Christmas. So far this year, the health care sector has announced 41,085 layoffs, the third-most behind financial and industrial companies.

Total private hospital employment is still up by 36,000 in the past 12 months, but it's down by 8,000 since April, and more staff reductions are expected into next year.

This month, Indiana University Health laid off about 900 workers as part of a move to trim its budget by $1 billion over five years. Vanderbilt plans to eliminate 1,000 jobs by the end of the year to help shave operating costs 8% a year. The Cleveland Clinic is offering buyouts to 3,000 employees as it shaves its annual operating costs by $330 million.





^^^^that is over the incoming expected flood of MEDICARE low paying patients. PERIOD. They have been triple punched : Baby boomers getting old, Now millions to be added to medicare through the ACA, AND another couple of million illegals and their kids soon to be given amnesties.

Yeah, it sucks that more people are going to have health care soon.

How dare we? We are going to stifle health care providers main concern. Profits.

That's un American!

Simple. Hospitals need less administrative workers. The gov't is taking over that end of it.

Win-win.

"Unkown as to why a male may need maternity leave- or pediatric needs.."


yes, because no male children exist, and men never father children.

whut from the likes of hedgepuss, queefuss, and a wiley rhino?

Kidding right?

Ive faced down real heat in my times locker,, and they aint that LMAO!

Did you know that there are more lurkers here by far than posters? There is about forty to fifty that i get e mails from occasionally.


There have been scant few times where i felt like i had been battered round here. When considering the posting history of the above mentioned posters it would be silly to give them one iota of respect or care eh.?.

Thanks for that, by the way...always good to start the week off with something so jaw-droppingly ignorant, to reaffirm everyone's wingnut stereotypes

I took maternity leave once.

I also cry on runout slabs.

I have no sac.

I wonder if Obamacare will cover the treatment for that? ...

In order to qualify for ACA coverage, a plan must offer maternity/paternity benefits - which it is up to the individual to chose, and pay for. It isn't automatically included - it's what we adults call an "option".

Like I said, thanks for that dose of abject, willful ignorance. Your status as laughing stock of ST is affirmed.

"The Affordable Care Act requires that any plan sold to individuals, or small groups of fifty or fewer employees, must provide ten different essential health benefits. Coverage for maternity and hospitalization are two of the listed benefits."

Essential Health Benefits

The Affordable Care Act requires that non-grandfathered health plans (those that were not in existence on March 23, 2010) offered in the individual and small group markets, both inside and outside of the new Health Insurance Marketplace (or “Exchange”), **cover a core package of healthcare services known as Essential Health Benefits. These plans must cover – at a minimum – the following 10 general categories:

Good God you're dumb

THE PLANS MUST OFFER AS OPTIONS maternity coverage, you're not required to choose them as part of your coverage

Had you ever actually signed up for health insurance, you (or the child guidance counselor helping you) would have chosen different options depending on your present/past medical history, and projected needs.

Did your mother have any other abortions, or were you the only one?
