HMO's main concerns are to control costs and supposedly provide the best possible treatment to their patients. But it seems to the naked eye that instead their main goal is to get more people enrolled so that they can maintain or raise current premiums paid by consumers using their service. For HMO's, profit comes first- not patients' lives. HMO’s are groups of doctors hired by insurance companies and are usually controlled or regulated by the hospitals who facilitate them. The majority of this limitation is due to pressure from within the organization or government pressure.

Do the benefits outweigh the costs of Obama Care?
As our great country grows we fix and find new problems every day. One of the biggest debates in the country is regarding whether or not the new “Affordable Care Act” is posing a problem to American society and lifestyle. Many actors, sports men, and friendly faces would tell you how wonderful it will be for American medicine once the populace is insured. However “Affordable care is more of a pipe dream in America until we are a more fiscally stable country, as well as a better approach to socialized medicine. For now the only thing we should be doing regarding health care is stapling a limit to make it more affordable for middle and lower class people instead of penalizing people for something they cannot afford.

You shouldn’t tell your doctor to give you services that are medically unnecessary or services you clearly don’t need. It’s important to not accept medical supplies from “recruiters” that are going door-to-door.
There are bad things about universal health care, but there are some good things ... ... middle of paper ... ...aid we could start with insurance companies and (quote, unquote) ?We could save money if we changed the incentive to require that preventative health care and wellness be covered, and we could require that every insurance company had to insure everybody and no exclusions for preexisting conditions.? She also wants to increase America?s commitment against global Aid?s. And Hilary definitely wants to make sure no child is left uninsured because the parents cannot pay for it. Many candidates made health care a big part of their campaign because the issue applies to the vast majority of Americans. So the question still remains, what should we do about health care?
