There are so many issues occurring in the world today, but one major problem right now is health care. There are so many health care policies internationally that people don 't understand the struggles of others. Some may ask themselves, how do global health policies differ? The problem with health care policies is that there are multiple ones around the world. There are many differences for example, in the U.S. in order to receive care at a hospital you need to have your insurance card and social security card, as for other counties or states you might not need all this paperwork.

According to 33 Million Americans Still Don’t Have Health Insurance by Anna Maria Barry-Jester it states, “Nearly 9 million people gained insurance last year, a win for “Obamacare” as the president’s signature healthcare law expanded Medicaid and opened health insurance exchanges. And yet, 33 million Americans, 10.4 percent of the U.S. population, still went without health insurance for the entirety of 2014” (Anna 1). Our state tries to help out by giving families who cannot afford healthcare a chance to have it but sometimes it does not work for some people. They do not qualify for this help being offered or there was just no more space for them to get help by the government. As you can see even with help given, many people still stay without healthcare every year.

In the united states, health care is very expensive and many people cannot afford it. The real controversy here is whether it is fair for health care to be so expensive or not.

In some concepts expensive care is not worth it. In the article International Health Care Systems states, “In truth, most effective national health care systems have had both successes and failures and have continued to shift and change, whether through reasoned evolution or owing to the swing of a political or economic pendulum. In many cases, lessons can be drawn from failures and setbacks as well as from advances and successes.” Many health care systems can fail to do their job expensive or not, but at one point they make the systems better. Everyone should be able to get affordable health care because it 's part of a benefit of a human. Yes, I agree that some highly expensive health care systems are expensive because they are truly worth it and effective. Honestly not everyone is economically stable to afford those highly expensive health care systems. Everyone should have a chance to get benefited by a health care system.
