I agree with both of your post responses. Having universal can save a lot of peoples lives, especially the elderly as well as children. I believe that if we all have access to medical assistance, it can help relieve that stress from so many families. Knowing that if your children get sick and you cant do anything about it because lack of insurance, is very stressful for parents. I can see why our nation is one of the worst when it comes to our health care system. It is all about the money and for these big insurance industries, we are all just another number to them.
There are many governments outside of the United States that rely on a Universal Health Care System. Due to this being a very controversial topic, it is not uncommon to see many articles, papers and editorials written about it. Editorials are often written by authors that have opposing views on the subject, both hoping to argue and convince readers that they are correct. By evaluating two different editorials objectively, it is easy to determine which author made the best argument without taking a side. Writing an editorial argument is an effective way of convincing a reader of a certain viewpoint. However, editorials are only effective if the proper evidentiary support and rhetoric skills are used.
I believe as a society we have moral obligation to provide healthcare to all the citizens of our nation. How would that become possible is the question? No matter what we choose as the solution to this problem, there will always be pros and cons. I think the answer is socialized medicine. Can a country like the US have socialized medicine? Yes we can, we are of a few who don’t. The cost of healthcare has been driven up so high that no one can afford it. My employers in Illinois is now insuring only the employee under the benefit plan and the spouse must use their employer, this can equate to much higher cost and employee dissatisfaction. I also see many people who bought plans from the marketplace applying for Medicaid as a supplement because with a high deductible of $15,000 they didn’t realize that they would continue to pay until the deductible amount is met. This is out of control.
After watching the documentary “SICKO” for the past couple of days, it has made me think about the difference in healthcare systems around the world. In Canada, we have access to free health care which is paid for through tax payers. By having a health card in Ontario, it entitles us to health care services which is paid for by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). The United Kingdom also has a similar health system called the National Health Service (NHS) which provides healthcare for citizens and it is also funded by taxes. They are established on the idea that healthcare should be available to all (for free), regardless of wealth or status. France is also recognized as one of the best in public health care in the world because of its network of hospitals, doctors, and medical service providers. All
Preventative care is a huge benefit of universal health care as people can go for regular checkups at a physician 's office to see if they have any problems. Using the preventative care method we are able to catch diseases in their early stages and eliminate them. This will lead to less major emergencies that will have to be looked at in the hospital reducing the costs greatly. In America preventative care is used way less than it should be due to the cost of insurance, “Nationally, Americans use preventive services at about half the recommended rate” (CDC, 2013). Americans not going in to get checked on regularly can cause small illness or diseases to spread or get larger. If this happens the patient might have to go find more intensive care and that would cost more money. This also would benefit the country as they would spend less money fixing these problems as it is very expensive, “Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are responsible for 7 of every 10 deaths among american each year and account for 75% of the nation’s health spending” (CDC, 2013). That is a large portion of the nation 's money going towards diseases that could have been prevented or reduced if they were seen on a regular
If I want to change one thing in this world I'm going to give people free health insurance. We as human beings susceptible to illnesses. Everyone in this world needs some to take care of him/her when they are sick.Some of the people they don't have money to pay for the insurance, so they can't find someone take care of them. No one can live without getting sick. However, if the person has insurance, he/she will get the medicine. But for the people who don't have insurance they don't find anyone take care of them. No one has plans to become sick or hurt, but most people require medical care at some points. Health insurance covers these expenses and offers many others significant benefits.
I believe that healthcare should be treated as a basic right. Many countries have Universal Healthcare and most of their citizens are much healthier and happier than citizens in the United States. There are pros and cons to every law or reform that is created, in my opinion, I think that the pros out way the cons for Universal Healthcare. Other countries care about their citizens, whereas the American government only cares about money and not the well-being of the population.
Health care is a basic American necessity. Many are required to have it, most are better off with is others don’t need it as much. No one can simply just live without it so why is it so expensive isn’t it there to help us? It’s costing us money that could be spent on other important necessities. One way in making health care more affordable is by rather than giving the kids money that you received for them and allowing your children to spend it on silly things, they will most likely only use a couple times it should be a requirement that a part of that money be put into the health care of that specific child.
Employment is the most efficient and cost effective path to receiving the best healthcare. Free health care puts unneeded financial strain on taxpayers and the federal government. In addition, reversing a free healthcare system will not be tolerated by Americans in years to
The health care universal system would raise the cost because free health care isn 't really free because it comes out of every body 's taxes that pay taxes. Doctor’s flexibility decrease because of how many patients they have to see a day they do not have enough time and seeing one hundred parents a day is above their pay grade. People who are well and have a good track or taking care of themselves and don 't need a doctor pay for those who are obese, healthy people who don’t feel the need to pay for health care shouldn 't if they don 't go to the doctor. People who have business are becoming unfavorable.
If the government opts to go with a single-payer system, it can do more harm than good.
1. What problem occurred after Hurricane Katrina that has prevented rebuilding? The private insurance companies were not going to insure the area close to the coast. That loss of money prevented the people from rebuilding their homes.
Health services is a fundamental part in trying to stop the inequalities in health status. Eliminating disparities in insurance coverage, having access, or quality of care would help assure growth in a strong productivity base for greater equality. This also would insinuate that everyone is now able and accountable for receiving health care service.
Although developed nations have healthcare available sometimes its impossible to have access to it. One thing almost all developed nations have in common with each other is that healthcare is never free. Some nations require citizens to pay more and some may require less, but there is always a price. The United States is a perfect example of this, the financially wealthy benefits most from our healthcare system while our more vulnerable populations that’s living in poverty have little to no benefits from our healthcare system at all. This then affects the diseases most prevalent in within each community and between developed and developing nations. Access to care also affects how those diseases or infections spread, the poor tends to get sicker
Should all world citizens have free (no cost) access to basic health care, or should nations have the right to limit access to health care based on their societal values and goals?
