These programs helped ease the lives of millions of people. Without these programs our nation would not be “the world’s leader in medical research” or “the leading power in computer and information technology” (Califano, 241, 242). These programs helped push America in the right way to success. “When LBG took office, 22.2 percent of Americans were living
The Affordable Care Act is also called Obamacare. It is also called Obamacare because it passed under the administration of Barack Obama. The ACA speaks for the most significant reform of the health care system since Medicare and Medicaid. Obama’s goal of the ACA was to reduce the amount of Americans that did not have insurance. He also wanted to reduce the overall cost of health care visits.
Originally, some diseases wiped out thousands upon thousands but today society has eliminated those threats. For a growing society, technology in medicine is necessary to fulfill its demands and to create a better future for mankind. Just this year at the State of the Union, Obama announced that Biden, the Vice President, is taking over the research for a cure to cancer and it would receive complete funding. Therefore organizations and research labs dedicated to finding a cure for cancer will have unlimited funding for whatever they require. Additionally, technology allows doctors easier access to databases to correctly diagnose a patient and find previous records.
First, the ACA has brought about considerable improvements in access to affordable health insurance in the United States. On the basis of their own reports, newly insured Americans are also able to see physicians within reasonable periods of time, and anecdotal reports about restricted access to out-of-network providers, although a concern, have not yet caused a major backlash. Second, the implementation of the ACA has coincided with another important development — a slowdown in the rate of increase in national health care spending. From 2010 through 2013, per capita U.S. health care expenditures increased at the historically low rate of 3.2% annually, as compared with 5.6% annually over the previous 10 years. As a percentage of the gross domestic product, health spending has stabilized at approximately 17%.
My summer of 2015 was dedicated to two internships; one being a Medical Assistant (200 hours) and another as a Physical Therapy Aide (80 hours). These internships helped me get an inside perspective of how nurses go above and beyond their everyday duties to ensure patient care, setting a standard for me to go above and beyond in terms of my education, my service to others, and in life. With the changes in college tuition having increased and state support for college students having taken a decrease over the last couple of years, this scholarship would benefit me tremendously in my goals to continue my education.
Affordable Care Act (ACA) is comprehensive health care reform law passed by President Barack Obama on March 2010, is also named as Obamacare. This act has 3 primary goals; first, make health insurance available to more people who are in the line of the federal poverty level, second, expand the medical program to cover all adults and third, generally lower the costs of health care. The law also aims to expand private and public insurance coverage, and regulating the insurance industry. This paper discusses about some of the benefit of ACA and drawback of the act.
In the society we live in today, doctors are paid an exponential amount of money and for good reason as they help us live a healthier life. My question is why are teachers, who are responsible for helping students, paid under the average salary of most Americans. The average income for Americans is roughly 81,400 dollars, then there is the average income for High school teachers at 56,350 dollars. When the pay is raised it’ll get teachers more interested in doing the best they can do to give their students a good education. Then higher pay attracts teachers who have better experience, education and credentials which also increases the quality of the education.
I would be responsible for ensuring that the medical providers are getting the correct amount of money that they deserve for their services they gave their patients (“Medical Coder”). “Coders earn an average of $35,000 to $50,000 dollars a year (“Medical Coder”)”. The more experience that I have as a coder the more money I will make. “Experienced coders earn 21% more than non-experienced coders (“Medical Coder”)”.The hospitals are planning to hire more coders in order to make sure that the billing and payments getting sent out do not fall because of the new coding program, ICD-10, they will be switching to in the beginning of October of 2015(Thompson).Because of so many shortages on people with the experience in coding, Medical coding jobs are in high demand (Thompson). With this being said the job outlook for me in this area is very good.
Therefore, in fall 2001, I have decided to pursue a career path in public health. Serving communities and people who are on the low end of social strata is a comforting experience. I always imagine if people lived healthier lives, practiced preventive medicine, and took precautions against illness and disease, are provided with clean water, clean environment, eat good food and have better accommodation through efforts others who has vested their energy and resources in creating such opportunity, how would the world be like? invariablely, Public health issues relate to almost every family, community and countries. given the reemergence of communicable disease, theat of global disaster , and the burden of co-morbidity dieseases, public health approach through preventive medicine is the only guarantee
Why college is beneficial If you or one of your family members has to go to the hospital, don’t you want to be able to pay for everything they need while they are there and to be able to pay the bill?
