I'm not sure how I feel about this, having run my first medical bill today on the new rules.

I do think it still needs some fine tuning and changes.

It's a really complicated issue, I think, Karen.

Dee, I agree that the reform, as it now stands, needs some tweaking and refining.

Don has psoriasis and he's been using an ointment that did work for a while but now it's not as effective.

I think they need to get some people on those committees who are actually part of and using the systems they are wanting to change.

Hi:Mollmae: I am looking to connect with folks on this site. I was recently diagnosed with Arthritis and I have chronic back pain. It's confusing getting around, I village. I am familiar with I-village from years ago, when I was going on Disability. It was great. Now, everything is new and different. If you get this message, can you please respon to me. I went to your page and only, saw your nam. Are you ahead of this board? How can I stay connected with the topic on "Arthritis". I cannot think about politics right now, but maybe tomorrow. Thanks...Sheri246@aol.com
PS: My doctors do not give me any hope of getting better. However, I do believe in Alternative Care. It's just expensive..I want to try to keep my arthritis from getting any worse, if I could do that....Best, Sheri.
Also, I need some "hope". I am 58 years old. IMO, the arthritis came about after a SEVEN FOOT fall 3 years ago. It's very depressing.. Thanks for your time.

I don't think the healthcare bill should be reformed at all. I think it needs to be tweeked, improved, extended. It should have a public option and be like Medicare Part E. It is going to be a long time before we see the true help it will give people so everyone can complain for years until it goes into effect in full. And hopefully by then it will be improved.

What I don't get is why Medicare and even my advantage insurance costs so much for doctors.
