These people are “praying that nothing will happen to their health or to the health of their children” (Faris, 1999). Privatized insurance companies have prices that are far beyond their reach, and many do not qualify for Medicaid. What if there was a public option health care that all Americans could a... ... middle of paper ... ...nst a government run health care program. They say that privatized insurance companies may fail because they will lose their clients to the lower cost public option. They are also worried that doctors will become underpaid and will leave the program.
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.
Because of some of these events the economy has suffered or will suffer. In order to fix this America needs to revise the Obamacare reform to reduce spending and not attack jobs. The Obama administration believes this is the key to future healthcare success for all Americans. Others believe that it will not work because of the increased cost, loss of benefits, and how much damage it has done to the economy. The American people need to understand the affordable care act is not the answer for the future of America.
Obama Care is not helping our community. It is making some people poor, because Obama is making have to have health care although some people can’t afford it. Some people can afford it but don’t want it,and some people will get it because the want it. With Obama Care there is also less money for schools and education. It also makes colleges more expensive than they would be normally so most people don’t agree with Obama Care, and with Obama forcing people to pick his prefered insurance, people lose the right to chose for themselves.
Since price variance is high fee for service would be the most ideal reimbursement model. Chronic Care No existing solution may solve the problems regarding the reimbursement of chronic conditions and events related to that. Though population health and accountable care organizations aim to solve these issues, there is less incentive for the consumer to take part in the process. So a mixed model where there is a costumer reimbursement tied with a physician and insurance company cost sharing method would be ideal. Since lifestyle changes are the primary cause of chronic diseases, life insurance scheme could also be tied to this, but in the long run, it can backfire with people choosing not to get medical attention or decreasing the value of health insurance.
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.
When the employee’s hours are reduced they earned less money, which hurts them financially. An immeasurable amount of small businesses are refusing to grow, in fear of higher taxes and the amount of money they have to spend on healthcare for employees. Many employers are trying to avoid paying higher insurance premiums. However, as of today policy for healthcare premiums is already higher than in the past which has many complications due to the rising cost of coverage. In paying for higher insurance and also the fines in which small business incur, employers will have to cut expenses to keep their business running smoothly and profitably.
There are many reasons as to why healthcare is more expensive in the United States than any other country. One of them is because of the high profit margins that are protected by pharmaceutical companies. In other countries like the UK, the government can negotiate lower prices which brings down the cost, while the US is stuck paying higher prices because legislation greatly reduces negotiating power of the US government. Another reason is that consumers in America are not the direct payer, therefore, they generally do not care about how much providers charge because it does not directly affect them (through direct pay or taxes). Along the same lines, in many other countries, the government is the only buyer of medical services because patients pay for services through taxes.
Quite simply, Obamacare is wrong and will not work. The idea that the fortunate, once again, bail out the unfortunate is hard to swallow. The poor who could not afford health care did not go to the doctor prior to having insurance, now, with Obamacare, those same people will go to the doctor more often and possibly abuse the system, costing money. In order for health care to be affordable for all people the insurance will have to restrict and offer less coverage. The main reason to not support the Affordable Healthcare Act is that insurance has become a “right, not a privilege” (Rak & Coffin, 2012).
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.
