People Don’t Understand What Insurance Is Or How It Works…A Never Ending Story

Behold:

She’s right, C-Sections aren’t “conditions”. A C-Section is however a procedure that once a woman has one, they are likely to require again should they have another child due to risk factors.

C-Sections also cost more than traditional birth.

Across the U.S., many families know firsthand how high maternity care costs are. As noted in The Times recently, giving birth in the U.S. is more expensive than any other country in the world. Total costs average $18,329 for a vaginal delivery and $27,866 for a C-section, with the bulk of the bill going to insurers. However, families with insurance still have to pay about $3400 out of pocket.

Should a woman who previously had a C-Section elect to have a natural birth in later pregnancies face additional risk factors.

Insurance companies manage risk. It’s the only way they can stay in business.

Of course that’s all just fancy mumbo-jumbo for their real motivation…they hate women.

And this kind of ignorance is how liberals pass ridiculous and unworkable laws.

I blog about politics and hockey because I sort of understand those things. I'd blog about women but I'll never understand them.

  1. An insurance company is just like daddy: someone who steps in to pay the bills.

  2. And she was so close, too: she doesn’t want the ACA plan because it’s too expensive, and one of the reasons it is too expensive is that it has to cover all pre-existing conditions without charging for them individually.

  3. None of this will get through to poor Ms. Rosen and her foul mouth (excuse me, grrrrl power.)

    The reply – because we’ve heard it countless times before from countless women and feminized men – is “well why shouldn’t my ______ be covered? Aren’t we all in this together? What good is a government that doesn’t take care of its citizens?”

    After a rote explanation of what insurance actually is, instead of shame at being so naive and simple, the new reaction (bolstered by well-placed memes in media) is “the whole concept of insurance is immoral! Health care is a right!”

    And on and on.

    You cannot shame the shameless. You cannot free the willing slave.

  4. I think they count “female” as a pre-existing condition.

    Um, I actually DO get charged more on my insurance premiums for being male. ALL THE TIME. Car and life insurance. Being male is a pre-existing condition!

  5. Insurance companies have to understand how the world actually works, not the liberal fantasy world they’ve created in their heads. For that reason, insurance companies are evil.

  6. Both of you are tholing with a cacodoxy

  7. “Total costs average $18,329 for a vaginal delivery and $27,866 for a C-section, with the bulk of the bill going to insurers.”

    This is another stupid formulation. The “bulk” of this doesn’t go to insurers! It goes through insurers to medical providers (hospital, doctor, nurses, etc.). Ugghhh!

  8. The bulk of the bill, not the money. The bill is sent to the insurers who then pay the providers. Read the damn sentence.
