All of these reasons point towards a national health care program as being the solution we need. Some opponents of single payer sytems, mostly financed by insurance companies that stand to lose billions from such a plan, point to some of the other countries that have enacted such plans as an advisory against our following suit. However they fail to take into account some of the methods unique to those countries and overstate some of the problems while ignoring our own.

The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) marks the beginning of significant transformation in the United States’ health care systems. After multiple attempts to reform health care over the years, the nation’s leaders have succeeded in pushing through this landmark legislation that will ensure most Americans will have access to health insurance by the beginning of 2014. However, does access to insurance assure access to actual healthcare? Will the costs of the insurance and related health care be affordable economically and socially? The foundational question the United States is addressing is whether health care is a basic human right available to all or a service available only to the working insured whose employers can afford the cost or to those who qualify for social programs.

Healthcare has been a topic of discussion with the majority of the country. Issues with insurance coverage, rising costs, limited options to gain coverage, and the quality of healthcare have become concerns for law makers, healthcare providers and the general public. Some of those concerns were alleviated with the passing of the Affordable Care Act, but new concerns have developed with problems that have occurred in the implementation of the new law. The main concerns of the country are if the Affordable Care Act will be able to overcome the issues that plagued the old healthcare system, the cost of the program, and how will the new law affect the quality of the health delivery system. In 2010, President Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act in order to bring reform to the current healthcare system.
In America the affordability and equality of access to healthcare is a crucial topic of debate when it comes to one's understanding of healthcare reform. The ability for a sick individual to attain proper treatment for their ailments has reached the upper echelons of government. Public outcry for a change in the handling of health insurance laws has aided in the establishment of the Affordable Healthcare Law (AHCL) to ensure the people of America will be able to get the medical attention they deserve as well as making that attention more affordable, as the name states. Since its creation, the AHCL has undergone scrutiny towards its effects on the government and its people; nevertheless, the new law must not be dismantled due to its function as a cornerstone of equal-opportunity healthcare, and if such a removal is allowed, there will be possibly detrimental effects on taxes, the economy, and poor people. Taxes in relation to the new healthcare reform is a prominent topic when one examines the supporting and opposing sides of the law.
Near the beginning of his term, President Barack Obama proposed a plan that would allow - or force - all Americans to have health insurance. His ideology is that every American should have federally provided healthcare. Even though he may not be proposing an entire absorption of the medical field into government policy, he is suggesting that the government could offer better health options than the current system. This is dangerous. Handouts offered by the government are usually taken and more are expected.
In the United States of America, the government, private health insurance systems, and patient's out-of-pocket cash provide health care funding in order to fund for the patients’ medical services, including vaccinations, doctor visits and prescription drugs needed to the concerned group of people.

The anticipated comprehensive reforms in the health care financing system hope to reduce or halt the persistent challenges occurring in the health care system. In addition, an efficient and cost-effective health care delivery would be manifested, resulting to provision of improved promotion and prevention services to every American citizen.

Today, healthcare has become a political issue between democrats and republicans which has made the problem even harder to solve. As we all are familiar with our government’s last shutdown and how much it hurt to our economy. One of the biggest reasons for this shutdown was due to disagreements between both parties over funding or defunding the Obama Care. Growing Demand for Health Care As a result of improved technology and advance medical facilities these days, life expectancy rate has been increased. People are living longer than they used they used to be, especially in the developed nations.
Recently President Obama has enacted new Health Care Reforms requiring everyone to have some form of insurance. Many citizens have a problem with being forced to buy insurance that is to expensive; or finding insurance policies that are affordable monthly, but the copays are too expensive to ever be able to use their policies. There is also the issue of some people do not believe in western medicine and have other practices of healing. I feel that it is unfair to make people finically or morally burdened by forcing them to buy health insurance. I know many people who would rather pay a fine than be forced into something they do not want or cannot afford.
