More Breast Cancers Have Been Diagnosed Early Since Obamacare Took Effect After the Affordable Care Act eliminated out-of-pocket costs for mammograms, a significant uptick in cancers were caught.

That’s why it’s such good news that new research has found that a growing number of breast cancers have been detected at an earlier stage since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. The researchers found that Medicaid expansion has been tied to a 6.4 percent increase in early stage cancer diagnoses, or about 15 additional cancers detected for every 100,000 people.

When cancer is caught early, it is easier and cheaper to treat. The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, sought to help Americans catch the disease early by requiring insurers to pay for some types of preventative care as well as an annual checkup.

  • Just dont force me to pay for that shit though. Seriously why are we feeding these insurance companies when it is way more cheaper for me to go without it.

  • Okay. I get it that ACA has saved lives (I greatly benefited from it). But, I really hope we push for Medicaid for all. No one should go from crisis to crisis like this couple did….

  • Yeah but I’ve been suffering for decades because I chose to remain ignorant of the changing global economy and all I want is a guaranteed low-skill labor job for the rest of my and my children’s lives…its about time someone else got screwed for a change!

  • insurance isnt a warranty. it is like buying a car insurance after getting in to a car accident. she should have spent her life saving then medicaid would have kicked in for not getting health insurance prior. why should other people should pay her bill when she thougjt she bought her car in
    s after getting in to a car accident

  • The answer is no we don’t care about others, we do not value human life besides our own, we are selfish, we only care about our individual selves, thats why we see the people who are out of their luck, as leeches, bums, and scum, when we should care about our fellow neighbor, countryman, and our neighboring countries, its only a matter of time before their problems become yours, we are interconnected everything they go through eventually you will, thats why we have to help and look out for one another, and thats the reason why Trump is now our president, it is a result of our selfishness and ignorance.

  • Look conservatives here’s the thing. You won and we understand that. You want to get rid of Obamacare, fine. COME UP WITH A REPLACEMENT FIRST. If you do people will be more than happy to go along with it because right now you are doing something that will literally kill people. Just understand that. It’s not hyperbole. People will literally die if you axe the Affordable Care Act without a backup ready to go. Mothers, Fathers, Children… Conservatives, Liberals, Veterans, Civilians. You will KILL these people if you ignore them in search of political points or giving the middle finger to Obama. Don’t be like that…

  • Poor darling.
    As a person who is lucky enough to have free universal healthcare, and a pay as you go GP system, I wouldn’t be alive myself were it not for this. This is very distressing to watch, and pray Trump doesn’t take this away from the 20 million Americans who need it.

  • I got insurance under the ACA the very week that I felt my mass. I was lucky that it ended up not being cancer, but it got so big that I needed surgery anyway. I would have died without the ACA because there’s no way I would have been able to afford the surgery. The week of my surgery, I was having trouble breathing because the mass was taking up the space I needed for my lungs to descend and take in oxygen. We can’t allowed this law to be repealed by a bunch of dumb ass rich people who assume that people who don’t buy health insurance are just being cheap and could really afford it. There’s no way I could have afforded it. I found my mass only months after graduating college. You never think it’s going to happen to you, but something like this is literally going to happen to every single person who is alive now at one point or another.

  • This is just beyond depressing.
    If we don’t hold our representatives accountable and make sure they don’t take away healthcare, then these people’s blood is on our hands.

  • the lady said that Obama said if there was something better than the Affordable Care Act that he would like to hear it. Mr. outgoing president, there’s a better thing it’s called single payer.

  • i just had my one year, and i can say from speaking with the financial advisor at the cancer center, this is going to really REALLY hurt people. If you are below the poverty line you might get some help or you make 6 figures but other then that you are probably going to lose your house with the bills your going to get. This video is a farce.

  • Insurance is for things that MIGHT happen, like your house burning down. It is almost certain that you will get ill at some time in your life so it is better to put your money into a non-profit fund to provide you with care when you are Ill. National Insurance works well in mist developed countries.

  • The way that man looks at his wife/future wife hits home. For the Republican Party to repeal the ACA and have no other plan or have displayed a better plan is sickening.

  • the lady said that Obama said if there was something better than the Affordable Care Act that he would like to hear it. Mr. outgoing president, there’s a better thing it’s called single payer.

  • As Alan Grayson famously said: “Here’s the Republican healthcare plan, it’s quite simple: 1. Don’t get sick. 2. And if you do get sick… 3. DIE QUICKLY”

    How can anyone agree with that fucking mantra?

  • If the ACA is repealed, then maybe, all the people whose lives were saved because they had coverage through the ACA should ban together and file a class action lawsuit against every single asshole in congress who voted to repeal the ACA. Sue them directly to pay their medical expenses.

  • The ACA saved my life too. My mass was a benign ovarian cyst, but it got so big that I couldn’t breathe the week of my surgery. Had the Medicaid expansion not covered me, I wouldn’t be alive to type these words. The bottom line is that we treat our animals better than we treat our fellow human beings sometimes and that is just sad. We ought to value the health of all living things.

  • Just like that woman on cnn, didn’t like the ACA, then she hit rough times, had to take Obamacare and it saved her life. Now, she is “just ok” with it. Talk about wanting to have their cake and eat it too….. What an absolute joke!

  • I like it how these guys take empty promises by politicians, AFTER they have already been discredited, and still present them as fact.
    Cancer treatments would be much more affordable & Accessible if insurance companies weren’t forced to waste so much time & resources on covering routine procedures.
    Obamacare will force UP treatment costs, premiums & deductibles, and make treatments less affordable. This has already started.

  • The Young Turds…..The polls that showed the numbers of pollsters said Hillary was going to win by a landslide. They poll in a way that gets them the numbers they want, not reality. Obama has not been a good President: Race relations are terrible, Blacks have not advanced, Health care is not affordable for anyone who is not subsidized, US debt has doubled, foreign relations are a mess, etc. Trump does not have to do much to do better. With that said, it looks like he will do a lot better.

  • verse of the day “Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They invent new ways of sinning, and they disobey their parents. They refuse to understand, break their promises, are heartless, and have no mercy. They know God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.”
    Romans 1:28‭-‬32

  • Watch and see…they have no clue…they have a leader that has no clue….people around him without a clue all they know is how to make money for themselves….watch and see…

  • being from a place where we have had universal health care for over 40 years, I do not believe his assertions, and I especially call those numbers into question in a world with universal health care. perhaps it is a semantic statistical focus, but a more important question would be how many people who have had cancer do not die of cancer or cancer related illness.

  • To all those who may doubt what she’s saying, you just don’t know what you don’t know until you know it! I have personal knowledge of several people who have suffered and died of cancer. But you know what? THAT was not the worst aspect of what they experienced. To watch their Children not only have to deal with a sick and dying Mom or Dad, but to then be uprooted from the safety of their home because Mom or Dad could no longer work and pay the mortgage, or had to sell it to pay for medical bills???
    For those who do not believe that we are our Brother’s keeper, I would just remind you that “there but by the grace of God go I.”
    It is time for us to change our priorities. It is time for Universal Healthcare!

  • I want everyone to have healthcare, EVERYONE when you help out a few million people what you are doing is making them complacent you make it so those people don’t feel as much of a sense of urgency to help other people who need it NOW you also make operations like the one I need over 150k so I must remain tortured/disabled for no reason other than that enough people are covered so they won’t complain, fight hard enough for everyone to have proper care. If I didn’t speak up to let people who have care know what the real cost is when they don’t insist on Universal care then I would be a horrible human being so don’t think I want anyone hurt & especially don’t want people to hurt others so that they are taken care of.

  • I understand the motivations of Republican lawmakers to repeal the ACA due to greed of their donors. I understand voters who may not like the financial hit of the ACA. I am one of these on that. However, I do not understand the segment of people who believe healthcare is a privilege as if all injuries, conditions, etc is the fault of the person even if it is genetic, pollution, accidental, etc. They make it as if we are all daredevils taking insane risks breaking our arms and legs, but that is simply not the case.

    I know someone who was riding his bike and had a hit and run by a car suffering injuries from it and he simply should and could not pay for the medical bills for a situation that was not his fault. It is, if anything, a double fuck you, to my friend who went through a traumatic experience and is then left with stress on how to pay it. It is an utterly insane system.

  • I love what she said about not thinking about people in the abstract, that we need to think of them as if they are people we know, or own selves. This abstract thinking is incredibly dangerous.

  • As Jimmy Dore said, Now that the Republicans control everything they have no choice but to actually Govern… and they have no idea how to, and they will have none to place the blame on but themselves and everyone will be watching them.
