I believe that with a national health care system, similar to the one in Canada and some European nations, this recession will be decease. The problem with Medicare is that it is not efficient and it’s in serious financial problems. Medicare is not the only problem in American health care system. The Increasing amounts of uninsured people, prescription drug costs, amounts of prescription drugs per individual, and having to turn down uninsured patients are all problems dealing with this health care system. There have been many attempts to move towards a universal health care policy in the United States.
Specifically, I want to see how it affects businesses. First of all, why did the healthcare system in this country need reforming? There were tens of millions of Americans without health insurance. The main reason was that it was so expensive. If your employer did not provide it, you had to pay for it yourself or be uninsured.
Managed care is often criticized for encouraging the withholding of beneficial care from patients. People need to be aware that many HMOs contain Gag Rules. These rules, in contracts ... ... middle of paper ... ...normous medical bills. Then there are citizens who are caught in the surreal world of Workers Comp, where money, if it ever shows up, is often too late. Healthcare is the one asset that affects every United States citizen.
Companies offered health coverage to their employers but certain laws prevented them from giving some benefits, forcing them into something that is called a one sized fit's all system. Basically like a waiting list. The problem with the one sized fit all system is that healthcare is just simply too large and complexed to manage at a government level. This is a system the government created that they cannot fix. The charge of Obama care would dump 60 million workers into the laws state and federal insurance exchanges which lead to the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Poor Medical health insurance can end with the aid of many solutions that will be proposed within this research paper. Thus, poor medical health care as mentioned before is a detracted problem that has to end because it is the reason of many peoples’ deaths. There are many reasons for poor medical health care in the United States. As mentioned by Dr. Steve Beller that many healthcare centers’ concentration is on raising the costs of the medicine and treatment rather than the health of the patients (Beller, 2008). Patients cannot afford the medicine or the costs of the health centers; nonetheless, the treatment is very expensive although it does not provide the needed and effective treatment and care to the patient.
For decades, one of the many externalities that the government is trying to solve is the rising costs of healthcare. "Rising healthcare costs have hurt American competitiveness, forced too many families into bankruptcy to get their families the care they need, and driven up our nation's long-term deficit" ("Deficit-Reducing Healthcare Reform," 2014). The United States national government plays a major role in organizing, overseeing, financing, and more so than ever delivering health care (Jaffe, 2009). Though the government does not provide healthcare directly, it serves as a financing agent for publicly funded healthcare programs through the taxation of citizens. The total share of the national publicly funded health spending by various governments amounts to 4 percent of the nation's gross domestic product, GDP (Jaffe, 2009).
Most of the time there are many people out there who can afford to attain health insurance or have insurance but their insurance doesn't cover mental health. The poor are the one's who gets hit hard the most. The American Health Care Act doesn't want to expand anymore money towards mental health. Mental health treatment services need to be maintained but also expaned in order to keep the country's mental health needs. Melissa Warnke explains, "The House and Senate verisons of Trumpcare would both phase out funding for that expansion and cut Medicaid spending by almost a trillion dollars over a decade."
(Institute 2009) .For those people who consider themselves as self-employed who want to buy their own private health insurance, can be twice as expensive as that that is being offered through employers. (Feldman 2012) Health Insurance is essential to Personal Well Being and your Health. For a large proportion of uninsured people, health insurance can and most often a matter of choice. Uninsured Americans normally tend to delay and even go without doctors' visits, prescription medications, and other effective treatments, even if they know they have serious or a life-threatening condition. (Institute 2009).
Obamacare has been a bad outcome to America’s new health care systems because paying large taxes and payments for needed health care is a more overwhelming problem to the lives of people with little money. We need affordable health care, not a way of taking peoples’ money from their pockets along with putting our lives in danger of losing what we own and care about. “Obamacare also known as “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” was made federal law on March 23, 2010, 2 years after the election of President Barack Obama”. (Kaiser Permanente) “It initiated the most significant changes in the U.S. healthcare system since the establishment of Medicare in 1965”. (Kaiser Permanente) “It has so far been a complicated issue with many moving parts and functions mainly designed to provide health insurance for a cheaper price cove... ... middle of paper ... ...consumes everyone’s money and doesn't help you with keeping up with your plans, the Affordable Care Act has been causing crisis in the U.S. with the economy, unemployment rates, and the destruction of long running businesses, I think that Obamacare is a joke and an enemy rather than a friend.
Less students will want to pursue a profession in the medical field. Healthcare is going to cost America billions of dollars and people will go to the doctors for minor illnesses which will lessen the time doctors have for serious patients. First, mandatory Health Insurance is not something I agree with nor do the majority of Americans. 67% of Americans describe the US healthcare as being in a state of crisis or having major problems. Most of them believe in personal responsibility and freedom of choice.
