Children would get the proper medical attention because with a national health care system their parents could afford health insurance. As Chris Farrell stated “no matter how the tab is met, the biggest myth in public policy today is that we can't afford universal health insurance
Chantra Horton ACC281 Accounting Concepts for Health Care Professional The California Sutter Health Approach Mark Strictlett January 30, 2012 An increasing issue within the health care field is the inability to collect debt from the growing population of uninsured or underinsured patients. Health care organizations may be struggling to meet operational margins because the industry has never treated its customers like other retail- oriented sectors of the economy. Hospitals incur sixty billion dollars in bad debt annually because the typically collect only ten to twenty percent of a total uninsured patient balance after service. This is due to a number of reasons, including poor accounting practices, or a lack of patient information.
For many years, I did not have health insurance, as I was too old to continue on my parents' policy and could not yet afford premiums on my own. Therefore I was at risk for years of falling through the cracks in case of a health emergency. Thus, the expansion of health care to younger Americans is a encouraging sign, although I am now too old to take advantage of the expansion. I have private health insurance now, and despite the promise of reigned in premiums in the long term as a result of health care reform, right now I am witnessing what seems like last minute premium hikes by nervous insurance companies. My guess is that the insurance companies are hiking rates now before all of the terms of the Affordable Healthcare Act are fully instituted.
Universal Health Care In the united states there are currently 46 million Americans with no insurance or are covered by inadequate insurance that doesn't provide all necessary care needed to live a healthy life.

The Unites States, one of few countries that holds a private health care system, unfortunately shows the care is inaccessible by average
Running head: THE PRIMARY CARE CLINIC The Primary Care Clinic Lacey Jaslaine Vaughn March 12, 2013 Strayer University Professor Kathleen Milburne The Primary Care Clinic Discuss the key political, economic, and social forces that may have influenced the development of the clinic. Politics have always had an influence on our healthcare. In the United States, people benefit from our health care system. There are many politicians that are being “paid” in order to keep our health care system the way it has been for years. Obamacare forces people to have health insurance, so it caused those who do not agree with it to make the choice to not get any type of health insurance.
As CEO of Middle field hospital I believe specific strategies need to be developed in order to improve the financial performance of the hospital. One of the problems at Middle field is competition from a nearby hospital. The nearby hospital that competes with Middlefield has opened a wellness center that offers a comprehensive array of preventative and wellness services to the community. This facility is attracting young families to seek services at this location. At Middlefield we have been relying on our reputation too much.
Whether they are poor or rich, can get health care in UK for free. Many complementary therapies are expensive. On the other hand, some might only cost a few pounds a month, but others may set you back several hundred or more. Make sure you have thought about the ongoing cost before you start taking anything or begin any treatment.

Amber Henson ENC 1101-1 27 Nov. 2010 How the Healthcare Reform Will Effect Physical Therapy For many people today, the cost of health care for a serious injury is so expensive that people cannot afford to pay the costs from an average income, while health care in general has risen faster than overall inflation. In today’s society, many people obtain health benefits through the workplace. People over the age of sixty-five have government programs which help out with the coverage of medical expenses. Medicare and Medicaid are not being offered in many states to help pay for the cost of physical therapy since it is not a big demand unless it is a serious injury.
