Dental Care is very expensive for some people in the world. People are not able to afford to get their teeth fixed like the celebrities or the high class. That’s why the lower classes have medicaid and medicare or they pay monthly payments. “For every adult without health insurance, an estimated three lack dental insurance, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.”(Wendell) The first dental payment was established in 1867. In 1963, 145 million citizens in the United States had coverage for hospital expenses, 135 million surgical expenses, and 102 million expenses for normal things.
About 1 and every 5 Americans today, are unable to afford the medicine that need to get better.

Planned Parenthood receives about twelve percent of its $528.4 million dollars from the government through grants and reimbursements from a law called Title X. Title X gives money to not only Planned Parenthood but also hospitals, schools, health departments, and other non- profits. About the other seventy- five percent of its money comes from patients they are serving insured by Medicaid. A government shutdown would mean that thousands of people working in the government would furlough if Congress did not make this decision.

This is for sure, the thought will surely accompanied with the amount of money that will be spend not only for the surgery but for the surgeon fees, hospital bills and after-cost surgery. In addition, no one wants to spend their substantial amount of money if the procedure can make them look even worse than before. According to Sedghi, people who undergo plastic surgeries spend around $40, 000 per day and it gives a total of $15 billion per year contributing to the surgeries (2014). Everyone knows that plastic surgery is not a low-cost procedure and it is usually not covered by medical insurance policies unless it is a reconstructive purpose in order to correct defects on the body or faces due to accidents. Yet, according to Barbosa, people still having plastic surgeries each and each year even there are additional costs on it whereby the bill can be total up to 50% to 100% higher than the surgeon's fees (2012).
Some of the families out there are poor. Huffpost states that “In the United States, parents spend $671 on average per year to cover the costs of uniforms and the hefty fees charged for registration.” People just can’t come up with that type of money. That’s a lot of money just what if you get hurt badly and need to go to the hospital. Your family spent all of their money spending it on the equipment. Then you can’t pay for your medical expenses.

In the second verse Hill says “Phony nationalism”. This is speaking on how America is seen as such a great country even though America has been the cause of genocides, discrimination, slavery, and racism. We can 't just forget the injustices past citizens and ancestors have faced just because the world we are living in today is safer than it was then. This teaches us that we have to respect the past and current experiences of all citizens.
Training costs money, so who is going to pay for it? The Government, who would also pay a year of living expenses to this person. About 63 million Americans volunteer each year, and excess of 300 billion dollars are donated each year. Americans on their own see the good in giving and volunteering their time and/or money. I feel like knowing you are forced to do a service most people aren 't going to want to do is going to create a lot of emotional problems such as depression or anxiety, suicide would be a factor too.
Health care for everyone is able to give people time out of the financial debt if they have no insurance.When you have no insurance you have to pay out of pocket for all doctor visits and also you might be rejected medical help.So when there is everyone on one page with health care you are able to have your finances in tack a little more also if it becomes more inexpensive for the people.Don 't you think that your body is worth the try?The government makes millions dollars of the medical industry weather prescription drugs,insurance companies,and doctor visits.When everyone is the same that means the government would have to set one set prices for everyone to be able to survive financially in it and not everyone is able to go into
The aging population play a major role in healthcare cost in the US. People are living longer than ever before in history. This is of huge significance because the elderly population receive services through publicly funded programs such as Medicaid and Medicare and although many adults are living longer, they usually have chronic and multiple health conditions which require frequent and longer visits to health establishments. This demographic is expected to double in population size by the year 2050, approximately 20% of the population will be 65 years and older. It affects the entire climate of healthcare, providers are concerned with the reimbursement rates which seem to keep decreasing and not keeping up with inflation, and with over half of the workforce in retirement, the people working pay most of the taxes which affects the amount available for funding these programs.
Healthcare professionals dedicate their lives to healing and comforting the ill; however, many fail to realize how costly their actions and prevention strategies truly cost. In the Money & Medicine video from PBS, the intensity of the costs of scans and procedures specifically related to birth, final years of life, and certain types of cancer. Through this video, it was brought to my attention that nearly one-third of health care money is spent during the last two years of patients’ lives. I was aware that in most cases the final two years of a person’s life require more medical attention; however, I was not aware that these costs allowed for such a large percentage of health care costs. I also learned that prostate cancer surgery is only
