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.
Of the many reasons that exist, two are particularly important. The United States has a highly flawed system of funding health care and a flawed system of allocating its health care resources. In the United States, a multitude of private health plans cover the lucrative sector of society—low cost, healthy workers and their healthy families. But public programs must cover the higher costs of the elderly, individuals with permanent disabilities, and some low-income individuals. Since the uninsured are frequently unable to pay for the care they receive, the costs for their care are shifted to government programs or private plans, or to the charity of providers, even if unintended.
