Having to keep up with inflation and the constant spending involved in a practice may prove to be too difficult. Many practices will need to either combine and cut back on expenses, or shut down entirely. This, like mentioned before, would also lead to less options for citizens to choose from when receiving medical attention. This whole diminishing medical field is enough alone to prove that this form of universal healthcare is not an ideal option for the United States.

This situation shows that the governments has been created thanks to the technology. Therefore, the technology should not be controlled by the government. To begin with, if a government limits the technological developments, the lack of the development in the medical technology can cause a decrease at the population, and governments’ economic conditions can be badly influenced. Firstly, millions of people can die. People need to use private hospitals for the best opportunities because of the limited technology that their countries’ hospitals have.

Undocumented immigrants are not eligible for Medicaid, CHIP, or buying coverage through the Marketplace. They can buy their own coverage without the Marketplace. However, this is typically more expensive, and their jobs may not include it in their benefits (“Immigrants and the Affordable Care Act”, 2013). A major complaint of many against public health insurance for illegal immigrants is emergency Medicaid. Under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act of 1986, hospitals must provide emergency, life-saving service to those who come in regardless of citizenship status or money.
By pushing back the eligibility age, the government can help decrease the amount of debt the nation holds. In addition to decreasing the national debt, pushing back the eligibility age will decrease the government run disengagement theory by not allowing elders to stack up on the money that they may not need and to withdraw from society. Patients that are eligible for Medicare are being denied the financial help that Medicare provides for their welfare due to the fact that they cannot and will, in most cases, show improvement in their condition. The downside to Medicare not covering the minimal health care for individuals causes the reverse to happen. People that have been able to maintain in their home with minimal support are now being forced into nursing home facilities to get the care that they needed.
Most people aren’t familiar with ways our government is trying to lower health care costs of the homeless by putting them in houses, here is their chance to learn. “Housing First” approaches are aimed at reducing the number of homeless people in metropolitan cities, especially in USA and Canada. In Tulsa, the Mental Health Association operates housing models that are successful using the Housing First approach, but only with a success rate of around nine percent. These programs are able to help people achieve self-sufficiency. Special consideration is given to people who have mental illnesses.
The majority of mental health consumers cannot afford to get the advanced treatment that is available to them, unless they either have enough money or good insurance coverage; most however do not. It is usually impossible to get into the specialty psychiatric clinics, like Stanford and UCLA, where treatment is very advanced and up-to date, therefore consumers have to be treated often within the county's mental health system; which is very rated very poor.
