Ensuring that all American citizens have an access to the right health care will in turn decrease health care costs. It can also help to stop medical bankruptcies in the entire nation. Lastly, it is one way of reducing poverty as it will lower the debt of the US which would then increase employment. Introduction A health care system that provides free health care services to its entire citizen can be termed as universal health care. This is a situation where all citizens are protected from financial costs in health care.

The first thing that would be enacted through my optimal health care reform plan would be making employer based insurance mandatory. Individuals who are employed will be eligible for health insurance coverage and will not be able to opt out with out proof of other insurance. Employer based insurance will become more affordable for both employers and employees through a tax credit incentive. Employers will be able to choose which plans to provide to employees through the use of a Health Exchange. No less than two plan options will be available to employees.
Obamacare provides you with all the information you need to become more educated about healthcare (“Features of Healthcare”). Another feature about Obamacare is to increase access to healthcare. If you are already insured you can get a bundle of new consumer benefits. If you are not insured you can enroll in Medicaid if you are low income. If you have a high income you can get health insurance through an exchange for a better price than with a private insurance company (Tate 17-18).
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is the real title of the bill, enacted in 2009. It is far better known as The Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. This bill represents the biggest revolution and improvement, or at least an attempt towards it, in the health care of the United States of America since the passage of Medicaid and Medicare in 1965. The main purpose of the ACA implementation was, as the bill states in its title, to make: ˝ Quality, Affordable Health Care for All Americans˝ possible. Before the ObamaCare, there were millions of American who were uninsured, or had poor quality insurance plan.
From my point of view, I think we should have Obama Care in the U.S. because it is really beneficial to poor families. It will also help cut the deficit, even though it increases taxes. Obama Care focuses more on providing families with health insurance and makes sure that individuals that cannot afford it get it.

LA Times reports to the contrary “Among the questions they're asking is: If healthcare spending is rising so fast, why is healthcare job growth flat? As Austin Frakt of Boston University puts it, the data "suggest that Americans recently poured a lot more of the national economy into health care without moving the needle on the rate of growth in real, human resources (jobs) devoted to delivering care.” (LA times) So if imposing health insurance on American citizens was supposed to help with lowering cost and create an opening for more jobs why is this not the case? I feel it is because like me a lot of Americans feel we should have the freedom of choice.
The ACA now gives everyone an opportunity to get affordable health insurance no matter their age, gender or how much they make. Elizabeth Renter states in her article “Obamacare Pros and Cons: What You Need to Know”, “One of the main methods the ACA used in getting health insurance to the uninsured was expansion of Medicaid, the state- and and federally funded health care program. Prior to the implementation, Medicaid only covers certain segments of the population, including low-income elderly, disabled individuals, children, pregnant women and some parents. With the expansion, that coverage was extended to include uninsured adults and those living with income below 138% of the federal poverty level”. People have the insurance way that Obamacare is they could probably have for the people that are having a living income that requires them to give the people what have been wanting all along which is more health care so that they can cover their family or relatives that are in a living income.
Savings would be obtained from replacing today's profit-oriented private insurance sector with a more streamlined public system with taxes based on the ability to pay. The majority of households would save money as patient will not longer deal with financial barriers including premiums, deductibles and co-pays. It is true that the United States offers some of the most advanced and adequate care in the world, at least to those who can afford it. America would have one of the best healthcare systems if everyone could afford and be allowed access to that same high-quality care.
According to Newsweek, the University Medical Center on average has about $100,000 dollars a month in unpaid doctor’s visits and operations and special procedures; this burden gets passed on to the County taxpayer (Johnson). Unpaid bills occur due to people taken to the hospital and either do not have, or have very poor health insurance. The current process is not fair to anyone, whether one has no health insurance or one who has paid for it. Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise referred to as Obamacare, signed into law on March 23, 2010, this requires all Americans to purchase health insurance. The purchase of this care is purchased either individually or through the government market place.
