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. The new health reform bill will affect physical therapy in many negative
Imagining a system where the doctor spends more time keeping you healthy with new methods, treatments and information, then he or she does in treating any illness. The status quo is not an option as some politicians claim because 14,000 people lose their health insurance every single day. This is on top of the 46-million who are already uninsured for various reasons. Obama’s healthcare reform will answer most of these
An increasing number of Americans have opted not to take advantage of job-based health insurance because they just can’t afford it. I believe that every citizen should have adequate health coverage whether it is Universal Healthcare or National Health Insurance. If the large insurance premiums are no longer a factor and employers can increase salaries for everyone in this country, we would all be able to afford the coverage that should be a right for us. It could be a flat fee based on your family situation or just so much of your tax dollars goes towards a national insurance fund. A major argument against a nationalized health care system is that it will be inefficient.
The cost of health insurance is continuing to rise which intern is making it difficult for Americans to provide health care for themselves and their families. Nationalizing health care would make health care more affordable to all Americans. Americans would be ensured the best health insurance possible. According to David Himmelstein, “Health insurance premiums have doubled in the last 8 years, rising 3.7times faster than wages in the past 8 years, and increasing co-pays and deductibles threaten access to care. Many insurance plans cover only a limited number of doctors’ visits or hospital days, exposing families’ to unlimited financial liability.
In Epidemiology they save life and increase health status of a population. Communicable disease such as AIDS and Hepatitis is a big challenge for U.K government and it increase pressure on department of finance’s due it’s to very costly treatment. AIDS and Hepatitis transfer very quickly from one source (person) to another source (person).Dementia with disability on the other hand is a challenge as well for U.K government. That’s why Government open Nursing and care home for the individual who suffer with dementia. If every individual who suffer with dementia want to stay at his or her own home it is much more difficult for the government to afford their
: Major Health Care Issues and resolutions As you are aware there are many issues facing healthcare. However, of these issues I believe that there are three major ones that require immediate attention. Though the United States has the most expensive healthcare system in the world, there is a considerable lack of quality. Healthcare is the country’s largest economic sector, accounting for over $2 trillion in annual expenditures. Yet, millions cannot afford to take care of their health needs, increasing the total of children that are uninsured.
I think it is sad to live in the greatest country in the world and not everyone has access to free or even affordable health care. Some people have insurance; some have government help and some work hard but can't afford insurance. When kids are sick, parents should be able to bring them to the doctor and get medicine. When elderly people need medicines, they shouldn't have to go without them because they are too expensive. I think that if we didn't have so many lawsuits in our country, doctors wouldn't have to charge so much and more people could go to the doctor when they need it.
Health care spending will grow at a rate of 6.7 per year from 2007 to 2017, and economic growth will slow to an average rate of 4.7%. The combination of these two factors will push the health care spending to 4.3 trillion by 2017 which will equal 20% of the country’s gross domestic product. The United States spends too much on health care. Researcher found that excessive spending comes from defensive medicine, such as redundant or unnecessary test and procedures, inefficient health care administration and the cost of care necessitated by conditions such as obesity. Inefficiencies in the health care system are: Behavior, clinical, and operational.
Perspective on Health Care Lilian M. Padilla HCS/212 October 1, 2012 Elwanda Whitaker Health care services has changed tremendously over the years, from new medicines through new technologies, there is also more disease that have been discover and new cure for incurables diseases that have existed for many years even centuries where people died because there was no cure and because doctors did not know what the diagnosis was. The history of health care is very interesting to me in many ways because of how things have progress throughout the years. The advances that are not in place are very impressive but also very costly. Thanks to preventing care now patients do
It has been estimated by several economists that $339 billion a year in additional taxes will be the bare minimum needed to compensate for the high cost of health care. This means that most tax rates would increase by over 10% (Tanner). Also, as proven by multiple studies, when given a financial incentive to do so, consumers make cost-conscious decisions in most circumstances (Tanner). Hence, if we give everyone the green light and open the door to health services without it directly affecting how much they have to pay, nothing is stopping them from abusing the system. If such abuses of the system occur nation-wide, which would likely happen, the cost of health
