Let’s face it, regardless of which party you voted for or standby every American wants the same thing, more affordable, more efficient, and a less mess healthcare reform. The reasons behind Americas high health care costs is a very complex stories, there is a lot that goes behind America’s high health care costs. When the time rolled around for ObamaCare to be released we were promised as Americans that the Obama care reform would help reduce health care costs and better our healthcare field.
The biggest complaint about ObamaCare is that it is skyrocketing deficit.ObamaCare was projected to cut the national deficit by over $200 billion during its first 10 years and over $1 trillion over the next two decades. But U.S. Rep. Morgan Griffith says ObamaCare will leave a dent on the nation’s budget for decades to come. “The Government Accountability Office estimated that it will add to the long-term deficit by $6.2 trillion,” Griffith, R-9th, said in a May 16 news release.
Another downside to ObamaCare is that it has completely revoked our right of choice when it comes to choosing our own health care coverage. with the implementation of the affordable healthcare act the law now requires all Americans to be enrolled in a qualified healthcare coverage program, this reform has also allowed the IRS authorization to track down and penalized those who do not enroll in a qualified health care coverage program, so basically this means people who choose not to have health care coverage for whatever reason will be penalized.
I’m not at all biased towards the affordable healthcare act, and in fact I was a supporter when the Obama administration rolled it out and implemented in January of 2014, many Americans who voted for this reform did so because of the promise and potential that it held, only to find out later that it will cause a massive amount of people to become unemployed or Uninsured simply the due to the fact that many employers could no longer afford healthcare plans for their employees due to the competitive prices caused by the Obama care act. So along with taking away our rights to choose our own health care, the reform as actually help to increase unemployment rates, as well as increase the number of those hard working American employees who are finding themselves uninsured.
Of course those individuals who are privately insured suspected that ObamaCare would not affect them in the slightest bit, but on the contrary ObamaCare hit everyone in America with blunt force drama by dictating services that providers are allowed to provide to patients even those who are privately insured. Under the Affordable Health Care Act providers are now only allowed to provide certain government approved services in treatment even to those who are privately insured.
In the midst of all this scrutinizing we often fail to notice the good things about Obama care. one major benefit of the affordable healthcare act is that essential health care services and benefits like emergency care, hospitalization, prescription drugs, and maternity and newborn care are included on all insurance plans even privately insured plans at no out of pocket limit and you can’t be charged more based on your health status of your gender, not to mention that ObamaCare gives individuals more rights, benefits, and protection. I can definitely say, along with most Americans, that the ObamaCare has been and health care reform of the century, bigger than any other healthcare reform we have seen in our time, and hopefully with tweaks to this reform in the future we will see a definite expansion of this health care reform, and I hope to see that many more rights are given to the American people with regards in so how they are allowed to choose their health care coverage. Because every American wants more cost efficient and better quality healthcare with as less mess as possible.
