UnitedHealth Drops Thousands Of Doctors From Insurance Plans In Obamacare Purge

Maybe in your idea of what a government takeover looks like, you imagined armed guards patrolling the streets. Well, that day is not far off, but there are other, cleaner ways to collapse and takeover a society. Destroying their healthcare and access to doctors is certainly one of them. It is typical in Marxist regimes to deny people access to clean water, fresh food and medical services. It weakens them and breaks their morale.

America, these are your last days, and you don’t even know it.

Reuters News – UnitedHealth Group dropped thousands of doctors from its networks in recent weeks, leaving many elderly patients unsure whether they need to switch plans to continue seeing their doctors, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

The insurer said in October that underfunding of Medicare Advantage for  plans the elderly could not be fully offset by the company’s other healthcare business. The company also reported spending more healthcare premiums on medical claims in the third quarter, due mainly to government cuts to payments for Medicare Advantage services.


The Journal report said that doctors in at least 10 states were notified of being laid off the plans, some citing “significant changes and pressures in the healthcare environment.” According to the notices, the terminations can be appealed within 30 days.

Tyler Mason, a UnitedHealth spokesperson, was not immediately available for comment when reached by Reuters.

The insurer told the WSJ that its provider networks were always changing and that it expected its Medicare Advantage network to be 85 percent to 90 percent of its current size by the end of 2014.

UnitedHealth is participating in about a dozen new state insurance markets that launched on October 1 to offer subsidized health coverage under President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul.

The insurer said previously it planned to withdraw from some markets in 2014 because of the government funding cuts.

Another top health insurer, Aetna Inc , also warned in October that it expected slowing growth in 2014 in its Medicare Advantage plans. source – Yahoo News

  • I want to know what ObamaCare has to do with the nearing of the end of the world and where you can find in the Bible the prophecy of new health insurance laws in the USA. If you can’t find it then quit publishing stuff because you don’t like our current president. I don’t either, but this is not about Christ returning to our world. And sorry to say, but I very highly doubt Barak Obama to be the Anti-Christ, as much as so many people want to believe that.

    • Barrack Obama may not be the antichrist, but he certainly is a forerunner of the antichrist…. And we know that with ObamaCare there is a great effort to control all areas of our lives and this tyranny is all leading to the one world government control… But if you are a true Christian and not lukewarm in your Christian walk don’t worry for Christ will aid us through all attempts to destroy us,,,,
      And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28

      • Watchman48: as you said he certainly is a forerunner to the AC.

        I believe the forerunner will be the False Prophet to the AC. as Elijah will be the forerunner to the true Messiah-Jesus Christ.

      • Henry Kissinger has said in four different Articles that I have personally read myself, that Barak Obama has been groomed to usher in the “One World Government”. That is what he is doing by taking over Banks, Food Industry, Medicine, bailing out GM, and now He has written in the Obama Care bill that if the Insurance Companies have to suffer a loss, He will bail them out. What does that sound like to
        you? This is what Hitler did. If you don’t know that History, Google it or get a book and read up on it. Also the “One World Government” is in the Prophecy books of “Daniel” and “Revelation”. This is the Last Days. Jesus is coming soon.

        • Kissinger should know. He is in with the in-crowd.

    • Anon: Yes, their been many Antichrists, and I don’t believe Obama could even be the Antichrist, and personally I would not want to meet the final Antichrist. I believe someone higher up as the CFR Commision or the TLC group is pulling his strings.

      But being a born again believer’s we should maintain our ideas on saving others and recieving Salvation in Jesus Christ?

      We should not be guessing who the Antichrist might be?

      But Obama does not fall into qualities of being Antichrist, by searching the scriptures in Dan. 9:26 AC comes from Roman Nationality, he will be linked to the Middle East as Is. 10:12-12 and related to Rev. 13:4.

      In Daniel it describes the AC will come out of the tribe of Dan, as it states, AC has no regard ” for the God of his Fathers,” AC will come up out of the earth, a Bibical phrase often associated with the Promished Land and the jewish people. The earth is a symbol for Israel and the sea “for the Gentile people.”

      And Obama is working hard as a muslim, to abandon Israel, so how could he claim he was a jew, when he will abandon Israel? He will come like Paul was in his nationality, Jew but by Roman nationality.

      • I completely agree with you, we should not be trying to guess who the antichrist is, but it just seems so many people write comments about how Obama might be the antichrist, there are tons of articles all about how everything he is doing is leading to the end of the world and so much more. So much of this has to do with what the world is doing as a whole. So I just want to know why, even though I hate ObamaCare too, this stuff is put on a website that talks about the end of the world may be coming soon and what things may be pointing towards the end of it. ObamaCare is not pointing to Christ’s return at all as far as I can tell.

        • It is always a series of events that reveal the heart of a person and set the stage for the judgment of God. This is just one of those. It reveals our hearts (selfish) and will be the path of economic destruction for this nation if it is not corrected. It also diverts our attention from the Iran deal that is selling out Israel.

    • It has a lot to do with it, If you read your Bible you will see God says never let a foreigner rule your country, They voted in a Muslim. I do not understand How you don’t get it ,70 tornadoes just yesterday These things must come ,to fulfill God’s Prophecy. Have more trust in Jesus he gave his life for us And he is very much alive .And to God one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years can feel like a day

    Brenda here, Hello all——

    The antichrist will be coming out of the Middle East, as he is called the Assyrian—-Isa 10:20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
    Isa 10:21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.
    Isa 10:22 For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.
    Isa 10:23 For the Lord GOD of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land.
    Isa 10:24 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt.
    Isa 10:25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and mine anger in their destruction.

    This is talking about the remnant-144,ooo- Jews, and when the Lord comes back after the great tribulation, to destroy the Assyrian-antichrist.

  • First amendment rights Abused by Target? My husband and I were dismayed by the Target store in Albuquerque New Mexico located at the Montgomery plaza on Wyoming St. refusing to allow the free exercise of the first amendment rights in the parking lot. While we were casting our vote the Target management refused to allow advocates holding signs For and Against the 20 week abortion pain ban legislation to stand in the parking lot area 100 feet or more from the polls. It was not clear whether two of them were on Target property or plaza property. Either way, Target threatened to have them all arrested if they didn’t leave the voting area. They were peacefully holding up signs supporting For or Against a very important legislation to be voted on in our city, not starting a riot! We are disappointed and upset that Target missed the opportunity to support FREE SPEECH while not necessarily taking sides!!! Is this another sign that our First Amendment Rights our being challenged? God Help Us! I won’t shop at Target if I can help it any more!

    • Debra: we lost our “Free Speech,” we just do not know it!

  • Debra: it’s my understanding that any form of campaigning on election day, anywhere near polls is illegal. You are fortunate not to have been arrested! Target was not infringing on your rights; they were keeping you out of jail!
    Anon: “Commiecare” has lots to do with the End Times! First, Obama stirred up racial strife, then he caused a great deal of anger between the sexes with his “War on Women” talk when there wasn’t one! Along with these, he has lead the simple-minded to hate the rich – the very people we used to envy and admire for their hard work and intelligence! All of these “feats” (in his mind, only) come straight from “Rules For Radicals”, a book written by his buddy, Saul Alinsky, a known communist, and admitted murderer! The next step on the road to Marxist socialism (i.e.: communism) is to take over health care and make the people dependent on the government. He has almost accomplished it! After this, he will continue his program to get us off the liberal-hated Constitution and Declaration of Independence. We all know he has already started that campaign! There is NOTHING sacred to our godless, hate-filled, Muslim president! He wants only to destroy America!
    He is stalling on Iran to give them enough time to develop a nuclear bomb, with which they will attack Israel and us! We don’t figure in the End Times described in the Bible: is this why? THIS is why NTEB feels they MUST keep us up to date on all the hate-filled plans Obama is executing. I hope you see the bigger picture here. This could be our “End Time”! We don’t know the Lord’s timing. But it certainly looks like it! It kind of makes you want to go to church more often, pray a lot more, witness to that neighbour you’ve been meaning to talk to, doesn’t it? Just in case…..

  • This is the latest way to enforce euthanasia on to the elderly or disabled in a new and quiet way thinking that we are to old or disabled to know what is going on at this time with our insurance. If we are fortunate to be able to afford a policy. This is being harder to pay as we live on a fixed budget, our budget does not go up, but the costs of insurance has not slowed down at all.
    I am thankful that I have United Healthcare, or Aetena and now they are going to change that where it will not be available for anyone except maybe the rich and famous.
    So much for my comments.
    Anyway just another voice that will not be heard.
    Thank you for allowing me to write to you.

  • BitterClinger

    Of course there are no death panels… if you think there is then you must be one of those loony conspiracy kooks..

  • ‘Death Panels’, free contraceptive care ‘Plan B’ etc., and full-term and Partial Birth Abortions-on-Demand- all part of destroying the best health care in the world. Of course- our national system needs major improvement… but not destruction!

  • By the way, early voting for the 20 weeks abortion pain ban legislation has been going on for over a week here in my city Albuquerque New Mexico and the against advocates have been stationed at the Target parking area without even a whimper from Target. But when the people that are FOR THE BAN ON ABORTIONS AFTER 29 WEEKS PAIN LEGISLATION got there this week, Target got their feathers ruffled, and wanted everyone arrested if they didn’t leave the area. That makes me think Target execs don’t give a whip about women or babies, and the pain they both have to experience to end a pregnancy.

    If people knew the real truth of what happens to both the woman and baby after 20 weeks they would be rushing to the polls to pass this ban legislation. A woman is told here in Albuquerque abortion clinics that the danger level goes up after 20 weeks to have an abortion. they also tell her that she will have to wait 2 to 3 days in a hotel for the dead baby they killed in the womb to labor out like having a full term delivery. The girl has to sit on a toilet when she feels the contraction all by herself in a hotel without doctors or nurses if she goes into labor before they can get there. If the dead baby comes out before they get to the hotel she is instructed to stay sitting on the toilet and to not look into the toilet! What a nightmare! How gross is that?! The abortion clinic tells the girl that death could happen also after 20 weeks. The girl has to sign a disclaimer of responsibility of the abortion clinic too. Do abortion supporters care what happens? Where are they when this is going on? It’s anti- abortion advocates who really love women and babies not abortion advocates! Who would subject a 12 year old or any age woman to such a situation where she has to labor a dead baby out in a toilet all alone many times! Many of these girls also end up in the emergency room with complication according to a ex abortionist I heard give in an information talk just recently. They put hidden cameras in the abortion clinics and found out about much of what I’m talking about. Many girls develop serious infections and die without the abortion clinics ever knowing about it. that’s how terrible their responsibility for women and babies is! It is safer for a woman to go full term and be in a hospital where doctors can deliver a live baby that she can give up for adoption rather than murder a baby who feels pain at 20 weeks and possibly developing an infection etc. in a hotel toilet situation with no doctor or nurse most of the time making it there in time. Christians need to wake up from their complacency as God comes knocking at their door. As we have opportunity to vote For legislation that effects the welfare of the woman as well as the unborn baby, we had better get off our couches and run to the polls to vote instead of sitting back complacent saying it won’t help! We are already experiencing the judgment of God for shedding innocent blood. Why ask for more by walking in complacency.


  • Bush was the first forerunner of the anti christ…..and Romney is the bridge….united health is mad because of profits ….now they can’t charge high coverage because of competition……that’s all I have to say about that

    • Bush and Romney are part of the system but they are far from Antichrist. The insurance companies don’t have clean hands but they are charging high premiums and will continue to get away with it. Competition is one of the fixes that didn’t happen because we went toward socialized medicine instead of free-market competition. It is important to understand the distinction between Satan’s way of doing things and God’s way. Satan uses circumstances and worldly wisdom to cause well-intentioned people to do things that set the stage for his agenda. Then he sends in his chosen acolyte to knowingly carry out his plan. That’s where we are now. God always intervenes and the world is reset for a season and then the cycle repeats. He says, though, that someday he will have had enough and will end this world. Many of us believe that all the signs show we are at that time. The Antichrist will be the ultimate acolyte, more evil than all who went before and he will do his dirty work in a world where God has removed his hand of protection. To make Romney, who is powerless and will stay that way the Antichrist or an antichrist is folly. It will keep your eyes off the real situation.

  • Poor Gump…

  • yes that’s our new Govt Ins for Retirees. I feel bad complaining but its out of irritation due to things promised to them. Now we are sorta in the lump w others for costs. PTL my 90 yr old Mom is protected at VA which is complelely different.

    • Teresa B: How is your mother protected by VA? Is she a veteran? Her husband was a veteran, if so, she’s on Campva?

      Rep. Tammy Duckworth of ILL. bringing up a bill, that disallows anyone who worked or retire from VA, is not allowed VA medical benefits, the will go on Medicare.

      And Combat War Veterans with Service Connection get services before any veteran’s that did not serve their country in a war zone! And they will not get coverage by VAMC after military discharge.

  • So anyone receiving VA medical noncombat will no longer receive care ???

    • ellana: yes, which should saved the VA miilions of dollars, where will the money go? To the VA Representatives bonus’s not to the combat veterans!

  • SHAME SHAME SHAME on United Health Care, these insurance companies are the reason Americans Need some type of insurance protection in the first place. Rip offs, EVERY ONE OF THEM. Get sick, see what happens to YOUR insurance. i.e. Mother got breast cancer, insurance company she had for 30 years DROPPED her. Sister got cancer, insurance company she had for 21 years DROPPED her in the MIDDLE of chemo. – It was a death sentence from them. My friend got sick and after 2 weeks in hospital, BEFORE she got help she needed, insurance company dropped her. These are ALL so called BIG reputable companies, not fly by nighters. RIP OFFS> ALL OF THEM, if you don;t believe me, wait until YOU or Someone you love get sick. United Health Care is just ANOTHER RIP OFF INSURANCE COMPANY.

    • Katharine: The reason ObamaCare was created, not for better health care, it had two reasons: 1. Control the people 2. write up several hundred of pages in the ObamaCare that has nothing to do with ObamaCare!

  • #24, you do not know what you are talking about, besides the VA is one big disastrous mess anyway They send meds vets don;t or cannot take, refuse care for what they do need, screw up ALL the time (it’s a FACT the VA has the gov’t pay over 250,000.00 PER DAY for THEIR medical MISTAKES, they consider it ‘collateral’ damage for cheap (and I mean CHEAP for the vets) health care. There’s so many mistakes and so much mix-ups the MONEY they WASTE ALL THE TIME SHOULD BE A CRIME. But, TRY to tell them NOT to send you a medicine or to send yo a medicine you CAN take and you will be bombarded with the WRONG ONE EVERY time. I know, I’m a vet from VN era, My doc (IF you can call him that) and the others at our facility have over 2000 patients each and we are allowed to see them 1 every 6 months unless it’s an emergency at which time we must go to THEM, not the VA triage, and wait ALL day HOPING they will see us. I have a service related disability, it is a JOKE. They CONSTANTLY send the wrong meds, costs them a fortune for THOSE mistakes, but can’t get a damn thing right, ever. Was on the same meds for over 20 years and “new” doctor wants (says they have to) start over on the old meds from 20 YEARS ago. I have been sick for a YEAR waiting on this idiot to get back to the RIGHT meds, meanwhile they keep sending meds that are contraindications to taking it with the others they prescribe, I KNOW IT, the PHARMACY knows it , but the doctors do it anyway. waste everywhere, all over the VA. t, they are IDIOTS and the CHEAPEST doctors they can get…does that tell you anything?

  • #24 NO where does it say VETERANS cannot use the VA, it says veterans tht can PAY for services, will pay something, just as they do NOW, with the exception oif those coming out of Afghanistan or Iraq, and they have 5 years to use the VA for FREE, after that IF they can pay something then they will, if NOT they will NOT. IF it is a service connected disability, like everyone else that has had to wait for YEARS AND YEARS to get the rating, they will get one, eventually.

    • Katharine: Let see I’m Disable Vietnam War Veteran after I went through 10 Rating Decision Denials, in 2012 I was granted after 43 years 100% Service Connection with Housebound Benefits. And after I went to my BVA Hearing my claim was remanded back to RO, and I recieved SOC letter granting the effective date of claim back to July 1973.
      I only believe that veterans that served their country in the time of war, should recieve VAMC benefits. The Non-war veterans should not recieve any benefits after their discharge.

      Its like working in a job for 3 years, then they stop working there, should they continue recieving medical benefits?

      Retired Military veterans should recieve Medical benefits.

  • Does any one wonder why every one hates Pres Obama so much when it was George Bush and Cheney that put us in a FAKE wmd war in the first place???? Maybe it has to do with his skin color. Come on, did pres obama claim wmd and take us to WAR in the middle east? And our country had a SURLUS (that means we were not in the RED) when George took office and leave behind the biggest deficient since the depression????? Do you KNOW whose company got the CONTRACTS to go in and rebuild these countries after they are blown up??? Can we say HALIBURTON, aka DICK ASS CHENY CRIMINALS, ALL of them,

  • #13, Jody, it may be illegal to campaign election day but it was done in south florida on george bush’s election day, I know, bec I was there. Not only were there republicans campaigning outside where the LINES were, but the DOCTORS were campaigning for CAPS on Malpractice suits…..NO ONE stopped them or told them to leave. They were lying through their teeth to the folks standing there, and unfortunately as many americans discover, many Americans did NOT do their homework BEFORE they went to vote, so they bought the bs. People didn;t even know many of the judges, propositions or candidates they were voting for, because they DID NOT BOTHER to find out who they were or WHAT they stood for OR represented. BTW, Florida has it’s OWN SCAM JOB ON WEBSITES. Gov Scott has a NEW one that’s been down for months and its affecting peoples benefits, mortgages, assistance, etc, and NO ONE outside of florida even hears about it…his attitude, who cares. He also has had an open position in his cabinet for over 8 months, his position again, so what.

  • #28, are you talking about the pay raises the politicians slide in on bills, or the addendum’s slid in on just about anything they vote on nowadays? LOBBYISTS control our government no matter who is in office, and you know who controls the lobbyists? a percent of the 1 per-centers…look it up, that;s a fact. can we say koch brothers?

  • Whether obamacare (I wish it was a different name, it might help), but if obamacare worked or not, INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE STILL RIP OFFS. PERIOD.

  • for those blaming the present president, whether yo like him or not, HE did NOT take us to WAR, a previous president did….can we remember 9-1-1, don’t think Obama was pres then, can we remember WMD, Saddaam Hussain? Don’t believe obama was president then either, WHAT exactly was our deficient when clinton left office? Oh wait THERE WAS NONE, what was it when bush left office????? The housing market was already crashing….Cheny, the biggest criminal of all was running our country, every wonder why bush is the ONLY president to NOT show up for MLK day. EVERY LIVING PRESIDENT WAS THERE EXCEPT HIM….guilt maybe? It did cost a hell of a lot to pay back all those folks to get those two, bush and cheny , elected, about 5,000 lives so far, and that’s just on our american side. Oh, but haliburton WILL make some mula.

  • #21 Hope, do you really believe the stupid crap coming out of your mind?????? THANK GOD, the GOD I BELIEVE in is NOT a prejudice closed minded idiot that only loves those that think the way he does, nor does he doom those that disagree with others. …have an open mind and learn something. Not EVERYONE that does not think like “you” is going to hell, but keep judging and maybe you will.

  • #23, unless your mom is a vet, the va isn’t doing too much for her, and even if she is, they’re still not doing too much for her. And shame on you for whining about helping those that need it. Isn’t that what CHRIS preached, help the poor and the sick???? Oh, but that’s not what Christians believe…or is it??? I’m confused, do Christians or do we not believe in CHrist? If we do, then why do we think it’s ok to be selfish, greedy and all for one…don’t think that’s what Jesus SAID or TAUGHT or BELIEVED. Oh, wait, maybe he was a socialist.

    • Katharine: One Question: Are you a Born Again Believer in Jesus Christ? John 3:1-7,16

  • Kill the older people and the disabled and those unable to understand what is happening to this united states of Americas health care for these people. They are being sent down the drain really fast. After this what age do they go after, since abortion is the start and before mentioned at the beginning of this comments that just leave the middle aged people that may make it few more years and then they will see the writing on the wall for their future then.
    God have mercy on this great nation of ours.

    • sammie , Please tell me why God should have mercy on this great nation of ours? America is turning her back on Israel, she has allowed and supported the rampant spread of homosexuality, slaughtered over 55 million babies and rejected God’s WORD… and you really expect God to have mercy on America?
      If you were familiar with God’s WORD you would know that He will never have mercy on that which he has reserved for destruction. God has made His judgment clear to those that are seeking to be obedient to His WORD and He will be merciful to the individual that cries out to Him in Jesus’ name.
      To read God’s judgment for America’s future or lack thereof, Google: “ The Message For America, Hand of Help Ministries. ” For what I think will be the 2nd major terrorist attack for America, Google; “ The Eagle and the Serpents, Hand of Help Ministries. ” And again for where I believe will be the location of this 2nd attack, Google: “ The Eagle and Serpents (Part 2), watchman48 BlogSpot com;” also look in the archive Feb. 09 and read the newsletter RFC #101.

  • #12 STL, we have lost our freedom of speech? Well, if so, it began when bush started tapping phone lines, anybodys they wanted too. BUT, if our freedom of speech is GONE, then how the heck are we all getting away with what we’re writing here??? I lived in 3rd world countries while a military brat and again as a GI, I can assure you, you have not seen what a loss of freedom of speech is, not yet anyway. We may be headed that way, but it won’t be bec of the sitting prez, it will be those tea party lunatics that want everything…you know the good christians (btw, I’m christian too, but I just have a more loving God than they apparently do)_

    • Katharine: I do live in a 3rd World Country, Mexico, there is no middle class in Mexico. Very Rich or very poor! Mexico just went into a double recession! I have seen the worse in many of my travels in my youth around the world. And I served 4 tours in the Vietnam War as a Medic and being wounded 2 times and I fought in Battle of Hamburger Hill and the greatest Battle of Firebase Ripcord, RVN. I have seen more than losing your rights for Freedom of Speech. I spent 43 years fighting for my benefits against VA, and now I’m 100% Service Connected War Veteran. I’m a Jew and a Born Again Believer in Jesus Christ.

      As you said, your CHRISTIAN, there is 38,000 different religions that believe there CHRISTIANS. Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, Catholics, 7th Day Adventist, and the list goes on and on. Most people are name only in Jesus Christ. But has they given their entire life over to Jesus Christ is the question?
