Access to Care Student’s name: Course: Institution: Date of Submission: ACCESS TO CARE Pros and Cons of Expanding HealthCare Increasing access to healthcare will mean that a large majority of people can access these services. There are about 45 million uninsured Americans and about 60 million become uninsured at some point in the year (Song & Smith, 2007). This suggests that these people cannot access proper healthcare. Expanding access will thus reduce this number thereby reducing the occurrence of preventable diseases (Nandi et al, 2009). It has also been established that people without insurance receive little care, get sick more often and thus die quicker (Gilfords et al, 2005).

The current health care system in the United States is a structure that is intertwined with both a private and public sector. The system that is set up in the United States is the most expensive health care system in the world (Institute of Medicine, 2010). In the United States people spend more money on medical care than anywhere in the world. In addition, people are more concerned with the rising costs of health care than collective access for the American people (Shi and Singh, 2008). I think that this is the time for the government to step in and make some changes in the health care system.
