Should health insurance be provided to all people and run by the government?
13 october 2017
Figuring out how Americans should receive healthcare has always been a controversial debate within Congress and amongst the people. The United States is one of the few developed nations that does not have a universal healthcare system and also spends more of its GDP on healthcare than any other OECD country. Rather than having a single payer national health insurance system, majority of U.S healthcare is funded and provided by private sector businesses. Even though both sides of the aisle believe reform is necessary, Liberals and Conservatives

, lack of access to health care primarily reflected a lack of insurance coverage, so access was an issue of financial access (Williamson, 2017). This population usually includes part-time workers, unemployed individuals, children, retired elderly, and the homeless. This population as a whole statistically does not seek out preventative medicine for acute and chronic diseases and are hospitalized more often than individuals who have better access to health care. In turn, the hospital organizations are left with a significant cost burden to pay for this patient population. This causes cost shifting, which refers to unpaid costs being covered by those who do pay for healthcare (Williamson, 2017

People either have public health insurance, private insurance, or pay out of pocket. Public health insurance is funded by the government and it includes Medicaid and Medicare. People can buy private insurance directly from the insurance company or get insured through work. People who don’t have either are left uninsured and have to pay out of pocket which can get very expensive.

A1. Country to Compare
The country whose healthcare system I am comparing to the United States is Japan.
Healthcare access in Japan consists of two major type of insurance: National Health Insurance (NHI), or Employees’ Health Insurance through an individual’s place of employment. NHI is designed for individuals whom do not qualify for employment-based health insurance plan. Health insurance is mandatory in Japan, whether someone is a citizen, a permanent resident, or a non-Japanese individual with a visa residing in Japan longer than three

Should all Americans have a Right (be entitled) to Health Care?
Yes, I believe that all Americans should have health care. Think about were Americans life would be without medical insurance. Right now, there are over 40 million American who is currently without any type of health coverage. With the steady rise in majority of people under the age of 65 going without coverage. Even though we are one as a nation we have so many medical services and hospital all around the world, that many Americans do not have access to. Health is not anything that we should over look.

Preexisting Conditions and the Affordable Care Act
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law.” (apha.org, 2012) This new health care act means extended publicly funded healthcare to many Americans who were previously uninsured, as well as making health care reasonably more affordable for those who aren’t necessarily considered poor but still are not able to afford health insurance. Many Americans are still unsure of what this new law will entail and how they will be covered.

The pros of group insurance are lower search costs for employees, no individual underwriting, and group insurances tends to be less expensive than if you were to purchase insurance as an individual. The cons of employer-provided group health insurance are benefits may be temporary and one size does not fit all in terms of needs for employees benefits.

Minorities are also less likely to have access to quality medical coverage as well as consideration. Poverty is is strongly correlated with poor health and in the United States minority communities poverty rates are more than double white poverty rates.
Minorities are also less likely to have health insurance due to their low income and in this society, without health insurance it is really hard to get the care that they need. Language is also a barrier among minorities when it comes to health care

value-based customer incentive system in healthcare is crucial in the US. This in itself is an effort to utilize cost sharing as well as related incentives to update customers of high-quality cost-effective providers and health plans. These approaches have an increased likelihood of success in the case corresponding financing reforms are introduced. Customers who are inside a group based insurance normally pay a reduced proportion of the healthcare cost, but they have no knowledge of the actual magnitude of the costs they pay. Furthermore, it is notable that even if consumers are not conversant with what their insurance costs entail, they usually have a little capability or motivation to act

However, those that don’t attend college should still have this vaccine, and if it is free then people would have no problem going to get vaccinated. Having insurance cover for the meningitis vaccine would benefit those like me who are about to go to college, but also many other families that have many members and cannot afford to pay for everyone’s cost of the vaccine.

Healthcare Over the Years in America
When looking at the healthcare in America over the years it has changed significantly; going from nomadic doctors with little training and remedies passed down from our elders to a highly complex system with better technology, more accurate procedures, and doctors with years of experience and training. The evolution of healthcare has had many milestones including the introduction of healthcare programs, drug regulations and laws, even medical insurance has come around within these periods of time. The healthcare system has grown so much we have built organizations that make a profit from health care. (Randolph

half of insured Americans receive health insurance through their employer.[footnoteRef:4] For these people, the employers subsidize the cost of care. Now, although receiving healthcare in this fashion removes the need to find an outside provider to pay, this structure has its flaws. First, companies generally consider this benefit as a cost of employment, meaning they factor it into the salaries they pay – employees are still ‘footing the bill’ in this respect. Furthermore, employers do not always cover the entire cost of care. People who accept employer policies are often still expected to contribute to the expense via monthly salary reductions or payments, co-payments, and deductibles. This

It is now time to focus on Americans being able to receive the health care they need, and just because they don’t have insurance, we need to make other gateways for them to remain at their healthiest.

points out that if companies do not give insurance copayment for birth control, women will have difficulty in maintaining their jobs (2). In the worse situation, women get the second pregnancy in a short time after their previous birth, they may not come back to work and have to stand out of the workforce. To protect the right to work of female employees, birth control should be easily accessible.
Protecting health of mothers and children, giving women chances to go to school to get a degree and helping them focus on their career before they are ready to raise their children are significant benefits of birth control. Therefore, I believe that the government should provide contraception for free. This will make our life become better because we can focus on other problems in our country without caring much about health and educational issues of our female citizens and our children.
