Mostly because it forces people to have health insurance even when most of us cannot afford it; if president Obama wanted it to help the community I think he should have kept in mind that he shouldn’t require the citizens do things they do not want to do and/or cannot afford to do. The individual mandate states that any person who works and earns a salary will be force to buy new health insurance. That’s where the Supreme Court intervenes and clarifies the law by saying that instead of a mandate, it would be classified as taxes. From which is something that the government can establish and regulate according to the individual’s income. But taxes?
Through political interventions, legislation are passed to ensure the conducts of the mobile clinics in areas such as licensing. Monitored mobile health clinics offer quality services by eliminating quacks that are unprofessional (Myers & Turvey 2013 p. 51). Through political intervention, mobile health clinic receives financial aid to continue operating efficiently. Such funds may be used to acquire new machines or hiring professionals and thus augmenting the quality of services offered.

Under the President Obama plan, patients will be able to make health care decisions with their doctors, instead of being blocked by insurance company bureaucrats; an official in a government department. The Obama plan requires insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions so all the Americans regardless of their health status or history can get comprehensive benefits at fair and stable premiums. The Obama plan has created a new Small Business Health Tax Credit to help businesses provide affordable health insurance to their employees. The Obama plan has also prevented insurers from overcharging doctors for their malpractice insurance and invests in proven strategies to reduce preventable medical errors.
It isn’t right for Obama Care to force everyone to get health insurance but it is the most logically because insurance companies cannot deny anyone so that everyone can be covered. There are about 32 million people who don't have health insurance. If something happens, and they have to go to the hospital, they often just don't pay the bill, and the hospital has to cover it. To cover the costs, hospitals raise the prices of health care for everyone and if the prices are raised then the more a hospital patient that’s covered by
In conclusion, Obama Care is a health care organization implemented through the democratic administration that helps individuals have a smoother medical experience by means of preventive care services, the Summary of Budgets Committee for nutritional benefits before and after a hospital stay, emergency room insurance acceptance with no turn away, pre existing condition and grandfathered insurance. This healthcare organization has been developed to provide Americans with an improved experience for hospital stays so that each citizen will not have to endure private health care disparities that deprive the young and old with medical care that only the rich have the privileged to
This increased its market share to above 80% in the cardiology practice (Gamble, 2013). Below 50% would not have attracted any concerns from FTC, but 80% is a monopolistic type of control likely to discourage competition. The complaints were likely to emerge from grievances by health plans and payers in the domestic market who feared amplified reimbursement rates (Cleverley et al., 2011). Under the antitrust laws, the Clayton Act forbids mergers and acquisitions that might considerably lessen competition in any line of trade and any sector of the country (Miles, 2013). This is significantly addressed in the 1996 Statements of Antitrust Enforcement Policy in Health Care.
It is better to have an advance directive than none at all. Primarily, a living will ensures that your wishes will be followed if something happens to you. This advance directive lets health care providers what sorts of treatments are provided by you, the patient. This strongly asserts the patient's choice into what treatments or procedures will be used in an emergency specifically a coma. Advance directives prevent unnecessary delay in administering medical treatments that require consent.
Ethical and Moral Issues in Practice With the passage of the Affordable Health Care Act several moral and ethical issues arose that, at the writing of this paper, have yet to be thoroughly vetted and addressed. According to an October 2013 article published by the Christian Broadcast Network, the Affordable Healthcare Act may trigger an exodus of physicians and other healthcare professionals. “Thousands of Christian doctors across the nation are considering quitting medicine or working overseas because of concerns over the new healthcare law. Dr. Gene Rudd, senior vice president of the Christian Medical Association, says they're worried they could be forced to facilitate abortions or prescribe drugs that violate their convictions. Rudd says many of them have avoided hiring and taking on new patients due to uncertainty over Obamacare.
