(Learn, N.D) But many people do not realize Medicare does not have nationwide coverage, so if you go out of town you and you get injured the insurance you pay for won’t cover you.(learn, N.D) But that’s not all, not many hospitals except Medicare patients, so even when you are in town and you must be rushed to the hospital your plan might not be accepted so then you either have to pay out of pocket or go to a hospital that expects it, and by that time it might be too late. Medicare also does not cover all of your medical expenses so even though you are still paying for insurance you will still have to pay most of your medical bills. (Learn, N.D) And it does not cover prescriptions that you must have to live, you will have to pay for them out of pocket and if you cannot afford them then you cannot get …show more content…
Since Obama they have had to limit the funding towards drug research, therefore many projects have been shut down due to limit money resources. (Obamacare, N.D) This is not only killing the drug research companies but it hurts people who are waiting for a medicine to help them survive. But since Obama care has limited the funding tremendously many people might never get that medicine to help them survive and live the life they deserve. The drug companies are losing over 35 billion dollars due to Obama care(Obamacare, N.D). That 35 billion dollars could have made over 100 new medicines and saves billions of lives, but because of Obama care that won’t happen. Obama care has butchered not only the drug companies but the people who are in desperate need for those

    With this health care reform, many medically needy citizens can now afford health insurance without paying the sky high cost. On the other hand, the Marketplace plans are not so affordable to those citizens who are in good health. Many people are complaining of high annual deductibles that they have to meet before they can use their “affordable” insurance. “If you have to pay $5,000 upfront, you might as well not have any insurance at all. That’s not insurance”, said Larry Shapire.…

    After that, more affordable generic brands can be put on the market. Most people cannot afford the price of brand drugs, and in those cases the generic brands become a necessity. “…due to high prices set by pharmaceutical companies, few can afford the medicines they need (Harvey 16+).” This is where the largest problem is; this is where the most people suffer. Pharmaceutical companies often will, after the end of the initial twenty years, change a small aspect of the drug and remarket it under a new patent. Then the advertisements of this new drug are used to prevent doctors from prescribing the generic brand to patients (Appleby).…

    The law’s cost on large employers varies, depending on eligibility and other plan provisions. No matter what, however, it has been a large added cost to employers (Abbott 9-10). The employer mandate part of the PPACA requires employers with fifty full time employees or more to provide health care coverage to their full time employees, or they will face fines. Some employers have threatened to reduce full time jobs to part time jobs in order to not have to offer health insurance (“Affordable Care Act” n.p.). Many job benefits have been eliminated because employers find them unaffordable and need the extra money to pay for health insurance (Abbott 12).…

    According to The Commonwealth Fund “the $2.9 trillion we spend annually on health care—a whopping $9,200 per person—isn’t necessarily buying us the best care or ensuring good health.”(TCF) This simply means that although the American health organization invests trillions of dollars into the healthcare system millions of Americans doesn’t gain any benefits. Is it honestly unfair that many hard working citizens who pays taxes and tasks consists of hard labor just to make a living have to go through such much trouble in order to receive better healthcare benefits. The system also fails due to lack of focus on primary care and public health. Primary care can help ensure positive health outcomes and health justice. Many person of the wealthier class feels as if this would collapse the entire healthcare system and hurt the country and the rich.…

    Putting Back the Integrity in Organ Transplantation The organ transplant process should be a life giving process that brings happiness and fulfillment in both parties. Instead there is a black cloud that hovers over the process due to the bad publicity organ traffickers have put on it. There is also a dread that once put on the transplant list a donor will not be found. According to Abouna (pg. 34), “In the US, one patient is added to the waiting list every 15 minutes, and in the year 2007, more than 95,000 patients are awaiting transplants”, while in “2006, 6342 patients died on the waiting list” (2008).…

    Along with a detailed history of insurance and political background on how has the health care system changed over the course of a few years, the book presents case studies that shows the financial strain and medical hardships caused by the declining health care system and why it is in a desperate need to reform. Some Americans cannot afford the medicine they need or cannot afford to pay the doctors for any medical help. “Hospitals try to keep out the uninsured because treating those patients will just divert hospital resources away from paying customers” (219). Some companies cannot provide insurance as an incentive with employment like previously either. Companies are increasingly reluctant to pay for their employees’ insurance because it’s no longer a cost-effective way to keep a stable workforce.…

    The reason for this being is the enrollment process is to difficult for the middle class citizens to understand. “You shouldn 't need a post college education to figure out how to enroll in Medicare.” It is so difficult to even apply for the healthcare many citizens just op out of getting it all together. Some state legislatures are however fighting back, in Maryland they require any company with ten thousand or more workers to put at least 8 percent of its payroll to health insurance coverage or Medicaid fund, this is stated on page 180 of War On The Middle Class. However corporate America gets around this healthcare issue by hiring illegal immigrants who can 't and won 't demand healthcare. This again just goes to show that the well-being and stability of our middle class is not a priority for the big businesses and our…

    Obomacare is making money a priority, not patient care as government and insurance companies have a different agenda than health care providers. Only 13 percent of physicians agree with and support Obomacare because it is truly health care rationing in action. 70% of American doctors disagree with Obamacare and feel it is impacting healthcare in a negative way. Almost 60 percent of doctors think they will retire in the next five years due to Obamacare and I have seen doctors, nurses and other medical workers leaving in droves, many being replaced by foreign doctors and nurses. The doctors no longer manage their patient’s care and are told by insurance companies what tests can be done, what medications to use and have been burdened with unending paperwork due to the new laws.…
