Benefit of universal healthcare to the society. It will be difficult to imagine life without health care. Health care today has become a serious issues, and concern because the vast medical costs. The private insurances company denying treatment bills and these have become the concern of the government of United State. The Government has been trying to reform the health care by introducing a universal health care system.
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.
Did it ever occur that America is one of the richest nations, yet fail to deliver proper health care system? The reason why many Americans around us are dying due to the cause of not having health care, because they simply don’t have any kind of health insurance. Now in 2016, there are news of the health insurance about a candidate Senator Bernie Sanders trying to reform to expand Medicaid; even further, by introducing the single payer health care option to all uninsured citizens. With the development of a better health insurance, living standards can improve, health care will be more affordable, and the mortality annually should decrease; therefore, it should be given to every citizen.

The Economics Of Medicare II. Introduction Clearly, the Medicaid program is ripe for a major overhaul, a task that the federal government has thus far been unwilling to undertake. I chose this topic because I believe that the Medicaid program can be rescued and revitalized by leadership; otherwise, it is likely to be eroded. Medicaid is a government-sponsored program whose objective is to provide patients with health assistance upon meeting specific criteria. Medicaid is an insurance program that is available for disadvantaged persons, including the elderly, who cannot afford health benefits because of low incomes or other factors.
Obamacare: the Temporary Solution to an Evolving Issue The need for universal health care within the United States has been evident, and needed to be addressed. The old healthcare system was plagued with issues, including expensive premiums that were on the rise, along with an inflated average infant mortality rate and limited average life expectancy, which ultimately led to many people being left uninsured (“Affordable” 2). In the 2012 presidential election, one key issue was how to reform America’s broken health care system, and to instate a successful universal healthcare system that has resolved the previous issues. Being one of the last influential and competitive countries in the world without universal healthcare, the pressure was on for the United States to develop their own system. Since Barack Obama became president, Obamacare, instead of the proposed Romneycare, was born.
While the debate over universal health care rages on here in the United States, we are ultimately spending more “on healthcare” while offering “fewer services to (our) citizens (Stephens & Ledlow, 2010). Access to primary care could make all the difference in what we as a country spend on healthcare for those who cannot afford it. Many people with no insurance coverage will wait to seek healthcare until their illness becomes much more complicated that it would have been if they could have afforded to visit a primary care physician when they first started feeling ill (Stephens & Ledlow, 2010). For the indigent and working poor, visiting a doctor often means not paying a utility bill or it may even prevent them from buying groceries. “Fifteen percent of low-income adults find it difficult to afford food” which means there is little chance that they will have health insurance (Hoffman & Paradise, 2008).The cost of providing these people with coverage that would give them access to a primary care physician has to be much le... ... middle of paper ... ...

Seeing a need for an alternative health care financing vehicle in the early 1930s, the doctors created the first open enrollment hospital insurance plan in the United States” (Sutter Health). As originally planned, this new medical insurance proposed benefits to both the doctors and the patients; patients could afford to be treated, while doctors could see more patients-even of the lower income class. Somehow—between then and now, the plan has been twisted and turned around so much that it has lost some of its greatest benefits and reputation.

Currently there are not enough doctors to competently watch over American health. Many ways exist to increase the supply of doctors, not one of them will field competent physicians.

Otherwise this will be a different form of socializing medicine where beneficiaries will have very lousy insurane that is not accepted by many healthcare providers and will leave people on a long waiting lists to get any medical service.

But I think that it will be very helpful if also the insurance will help with the medicines of the families because how I was saying they also cost a lot they are not cheap. More insurances should improve on that because that could be a big problem for most of the families to.
