However, working adults can use the benefits of the medical insurance, which will give them an opportunity for a decent medical service and reduce the general taxation burden. The issue of health care throughout the years has been a major issue in the society in the United States and it is one of the most important aspects of an election campaign of any political party. One issue concerning healthcare is that it is very expensive and more than 52 million people do not have any coverage or they have less adequate coverage. In addition, it is very important for people to have coverage for general healthcare maintenance and just in case, something drastic occurs, in their life. A well-organized, efficient health care system is not that easy to provide and one of the key problems on the way to the ideal hospitals and medical help is proper funding.
There should be a way to help the community on these there needs for paying their bills. Another problem for the health care bill is that the economy is keep increasing and it is a very difficult situation for low income families to deal with, they could not pace themselves because of the expenses. A reality for this problem could end up for people working extra job just to get rid of the health care, which can make people stress of whether die or keep working. A good solution for this problem is that the hospital should depend there billing payment according to the income that a family has because they also need money to support their family. There should also be more treatment to help people and make
This essay aims to explain that we should eliminate the use of universal health coverage or free access to healthcare services for a number of reasons. To begin with, one of the major arguments to defend against the use of universal health coverage leads to the raise of tax rate. In other word, if a country starts to provide universal health coverage, government’s spending will be increase. Thus, government needs to increase the percentage of tax rate or collect higher amount of money to balance with the growth of spending. Since every single person get free access to universal health coverage and share the cost equally, it is quite inequitable for someone who works very hard and they end up paying for health care coverage for someone who works less or does not work at all through tax collection.
Before all this readings and discussions about health as a human right, I never put too much thought into it. I guess when we are “physically healthy” we tend to believe that everybody else is. The human right to health means that everyone has the right to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, which includes access to medical services, sanitation, adequate food, decent housing, healthy working conditions, and a clean environment.The human right to health should guarantee a system of health protection for all. Everyone has the right to the health care they need, and to living conditions that enable us to be healthy, such as adequate food, affordable housing, and a healthy environment, communities, neighborhoods, etc. Health care must be provided as a public good for all, and most be distributed equitably.
Running Head: Pros and Cons of Universal Healthcare Pros and Cons of Universal Healthcare: How it Impacts Cost, Access and Quality of Care Kailon Pinckney, Paulette Powell-Heath, Londa Philippeaux, Debbie Stoll-Thompson and Bridgette Ransom Strayer University Pros and Cons of Universal Healthcare PURPOSE AND SCOPE The purpose of Universal health care is to provide health care to all individuals, which includes medical, dental, and mental health care. Universal health care is to preserve and improve health regardless of gender, race, region, age, health status, income, or wealth and is seen as a human right. According to the National Economic and Social Rights Initiative, (2008) The human right to health guarantees a system of health protection. Everyone has a right to enjoy, on an equal basis, a variety of facilities, goods, services, and conditions necessary for the realization of the highest attainable stand of health. This right includes access to appropriate health care, and to the underlying social determinants of health, such as adequate food, housing, and a healthy environment.
Of course, you pay for the NHS within taxes; however every UK taxpayer makes the same contribution. Secondly, the NHS offers a huge range of services to provide the UK general public with adequate healthcare. Several specialised services are also available including alternative therapies such as hypnosis or acupuncture. However, it also has disadvantages. Because it’s a free service, this unfortunately means that resources are often strained.
Primary Health Care concepts Primary Health Care refers to “health care services that are provided outside the hospital”(fact sheet 1 2009). A general practitioner is a primary health care provider, as are nurses, pharmacists and allied health providers such as dentists, podiatrists and so on. All over the world, primary health care is regarded as a major contributing factor of the community health. In fact, the World Health Organization has declared that “the ultimate goal of primary health care is better health for all.”(WHO 1974) Likewise for the Tomuka settlement in Lautoka, which is having lot of diseases and infection such as scabies, nits and lice and Sexually Transmitted Infection (STIs) among the young generation. As population of the community s quite high there is a legitimate need of the Primary Health Care services.
I believe that the financial impact will be the least significant and will least likely pass. One may argue that someone would pay any amount to feel relaxed and happy when at the dentist instead of feeling worried or scared but it will be so hard and take a considerable amount of time and money to distinguish pain and un-comfortableness that comes with the connotation of going to the dentist. This will be a costly exercise when people are paying a premium and may not wish to stretch there budgets any further, coupled with the fact that most insurance companies are stringent enough allowing simple checkups, they are not going to be allowing a full body massage to be included in the monthly insurance premium. 2. What are some of the main areas of complexity and divergence in this kind of operation relative to the standard dental clinic?
I’m a capitalist who believes in the free-market business model and who thinks that “health care” is a service provided by health care practitioners and a commodity purchased by consumers/patients. As far as the “universal” part goes, I’m fine with universal health care, health care for everyone I say! But I don’t think it should be government funded. In researching it, I've found that keeping health care costs low just boils down to simple economics and keeping the government out of it. (Everyone should read the following article if you haven't already and if you really want to learn about the implications of government-funded universal health care - http://www.theobjectivestandard.com/issues/2007-winter/moral-vs-universal-health-care.asp - it's very informative
Money that was used for the “extras in life” would go to medical needs. This also causes the government to have more costs. As people get illnesses, the government needs to devote more spending on health care and health related expenses. When the government spend more money on health care, we lose money in other places. This causes our standards to drop because there isn’t money for other things.
