Spring 20-What's your vote? Health Care in the US- Should it be universal, government ran?

This is a debate by high school Health Education Students. If you are not part of the class please don't participate. 

~

The United States health care has been a controversial issue for decades. Currently, some people are covered under government health plans through programs like Medicaid, Medicare and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Many of the rest receive health care through their employer, or through private insurance for which they have to pay out of their own pockets, but about 40 million people in the USA do not have health insurance at all.

 Does our current free enterprise system keep our health care top notch and encourage doctors to practice here?

 

Should we have universal health care?

 

Tell me what you think.

 

You need to pick a position and post your opinion in the form of a an educated paragraph (more than 3 sentences). Then you will respond to at least 2 other postings.

 

Remember to give a clear and educated debate. 

You may reference the internet and your outlines.

Health care should be universal because there shouldn’t be a price set on something as valuable as a human life.In the film it mentioned that the people who were unable to pay for their stay in the hospital were thrown out.The hospital cared more about their business than a disoriented patient.The film also mentioned Cuba and how a small resourceful country treats many people while America a high resourceful country helps little to no people.The treatment in Cuba was better and more accepting ,even giving the 9/11 volunteers the recognition that the U.S didn’t .

I agree with this statement because the United States, as resourceful as it is, should take better care of their citizens, especially those that volunteered in a crucial time. The health of a person should mean more than money. Sick people getting thrown out of hospitals because they couldn’t afford it is just inhumane and disturbing.

Health care should be available free for everyone in the United States. The current health care system is failing its citizens by creating debt for them as well as preventing them from getting the care they need. Citizens can only have health care if they have money to pay for all the expenses. Not only this but health care agencies require lots of guidelines in order to give people the care they need, which isn’t always fair to the people.

Things like this can’t just be free and available for everyone. People end up lying either way and having the false sense of, “free” creates issues for the people having to pay. Money does not come from nowhere. That simply isn’t true. The people have to end up paying either way.

That is the main point of the republican view that we saw in the video. It addressed your issue about “people not being able to afford it”. With the capitalistic idea of supply and demand them prices would have to lower and quality would improve. This is because if a hospital is worse then another, then people just won’t go to it and so the hospital won’t get money and will have to shut down.

I think we need universal healthcare run by the government because it is much more convenient and helps spread care through everyone in the nation. The problem with healthcare right now is that it does not always cover all of our problems, and even if it does, it ends up costing so much that we fall into an enormous pile of debt. Switching to universal healthcare will be good for both sides of the argument, for the employees and the patients, since the doctors will be paid by the government and the patients will get healthcare for free.

Though universal healthcare has some cons such as individual coverage being limited, I still believe the pros outweigh the cons thus making it superior than individual healthcare. With universal coverage, all individuals receive access to healthcare services, including preventative, emergency and palliative care, without it becoming a financial hardship. With this type of plan, coverage is provided by different entities.

Throughout our nation millions of people are living without healthcare and healthcare insurance. Although some may argue that without healthcare insurance the wait is shorter, the healthcare is cheaper and it feels more independent, this isn't the time to worry just about ourselves; but rather, about the millions of people and children who can't afford healthcare. Think about it, imagine your a child whose family couldn't afford independent healthcare. Whose side would you be on? Obviously not independent healthcare. Furthermore, health insurance could also help you too. Instead of having to pay 10 thousand dollars for a surgery, you would only have to pay three thousand dollars in deductibles and the insurance company would pay for the rest. So all in all, healthcare for all is the way to go.

Healthcare is a subjective topic to talk about. Everybody has their own opinion and although I’m arguing for universal healthcare, independent healthcare is something also to consider. However, our current health insurance rejects people are too obese or too slim. If you have certain disorders or diseases you will automatically be rejected to get health insurance. There’s also people that are hired by health insurance companies to find any little mistake in a persons application to deny them health insurance. Lobbyists buy politicians to benefit health insurance companies.

The French, British, and Canada live longer than Americans because of the healthcare system that they have. It’s ironic that Americans go to places like Cuba and Canada to get healthcare because it takes a while for people to get to medical attention here.

By allowing a system of healthcare that is universal where everyone can receive medical attention, more people will be allowed to live healthier lives and be able to find cures for their conditions much easier and more affordable than they would in a private sector where everything must come out of your pocket or an insurance company has to choose to want to help you.

I do believe that doctors are able to provide excellent service but if it’s not accessible or affordable it can be difficult to be put in practice. Like the documentary argued, universal healthcare shouldn’t be an argument between left and right but a simple basic necessity. The purpose of healthcare should be to take care of our people not to gain profit. John Stossel argued that government officials from all over the world have traveled to the U.S in order to get medical procedures but that’s because they have the money to afford it unlike most of the lower and middle class in America.

Private insurance companies in the United States often reject people over pre-existing conditions, which we have no control over. Even when people are covered with insurance, they could still get certain procedures, medicines, and surgeries rejected, just to save money for the company. In foreign countries like France and the UK they pay only the fraction that we do for the same medication. Some argue that wait times for these countries are much longer than ours, but in the documentary “Sicko”, we can see that regular citizens don’t wait as long as suggested by the media.

I think that health care should be free for everyone. The health care system that we have today has cost the life’s of many people. Death is a major result of not being able to afford health care insurance. People all over America suffer from bankruptcy due to health care expenses.

I believe that universal health care should be the standard in the United States in America. The reason I use the subjective word standard is because I also believe private health care should also be optional to individuals who would like it. To deny a person their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is unconstitutional. Therefore, making universal health care the standard gives individuals who cannot afford private health care the choice to live.

Universal health coverage means that all people have access to the health services they need without the risk of financial hardship when paying for them.

In my opinion, health care should be universal. Some people can’t take care of themselves and it’s the humane thing to help them when we can.

I believe healthcare is for all because every person should have a right to be checked out in a hospital and not denied medical assistance. Like the documentary mentioned healthcare should be about helping the people get better but people just think about the profit. Many people in America are left in debt because their insurance Refused to pay because of many reasons which leaves the poor people in debt with hospital bills. People are left in bankruptcy and nothing left because they're trying to stay healthy.

With other countries having health care for all, most of the time going to the hospital or the doctor isn’t such a worry for the reason of having healthcare. In the United States a lot of people worry about getting sick because of the amount of money they would have to pay. By paying a certain amount of money in order to have health care for all, it would be more easier and less stressful than paying an amount you wouldn’t be able to pay.

Universal healthcare allows for inexpensive treatment. The government pays 80% of costs through income and payroll taxes. The rest is paid from copayments and people paying out-of-pocket for NHS services. It pays for all medical care, including some dental and eye care, hospice care, and some long-term care. There are some copays for drugs. Although it may remove competition and stagnate technological and service improvements, those unable to pay for treatment will at least get something in the long run.

Although a free market enterprise system is beneficial in other industries by motivating people to innovate and lower prices, it is detrimental to the health industry. Insurances should not be motivated to deny coverage to anybody simply because they are considered a financial “risk” to the insurer. Insurance companies currently disqualify people because of specific medical conditions. I believe this is unethical given that these people are in need of medical attention, yet are able to receive any. I believe that with universal healthcare individuals will be able to take care of themselves, improving the quality of life.

The main reason to why I picked this side of the argument was because it seems the fairest to me. I believe that by having free healthcare for all will encourage everyone to take care of their health. One reason to why people don’t go to the doctor is because of the actual price of it. People see the price of a procedure and it encourages them to not go to the doctor and try to deal with it at home. They may also buy antibiotics from other countries that claim are for what the person is suffering but this might be for something completely differently and affect their health.

I totally agree with you. The healthcare system is so messed up and needs to be fixed fast. It shouldn’t cost so much for us to be treated.

Treatment needs to become better if the medical bills are going to be that expensive.

Healthcare needs to be available for everyone, for free. The only people that can afford the system we have now is the one percent aka the rich. Many of the people in America don’t make enough money to take care of their families and be able to pay $200 for a checkup if their child has a fever. Over 50 million Americans don’t have insurance, are we supposed to let them suffer? To not be able to take care of themselves because they cannot afford it. Many jobs people work don’t provide enough. Plus most well paying jobs require that you attend a four year college, not every family has that money, so since someone doesn’t attend college they end up not having a well paying job and that non well paying job leads to tell not having enough money to take care of themselves. Due to the lack of money people have to work and work and work until they get old and possibly once they hit their death bed because they can’t afford to take care without the income. We should have our sick and old having to push themselves farther than their bodies can handle because healthcare companies want to charge crazy rates or have people under their company’s insurance cancelled. Concluding my argument, I think that healthcare should be free for every race, religion, height, weight, anything. Everyone deserves to be healthy.

Universal healthcare is the solution to all our health related conflicts. With universal healthcare provided by the government, each & every patient is covered & does not have to worry about being in debt or not being able to pay for the care that they need.

Thousands of patients are turned down by their insurance company for pre existing diseases they didn’t even know they had.

Like this, people wouldn’t go seeking for medical attention outside of this country because they can’t afford it. We should be able to provide to our own citizens.Also, we’ll be able to have a standardized system worldwide and make it much easier to transfer patients, consistency in medicines and treatments, all that stuff.

I support healthcare for all because it might not profit the government but we can all have access to a doctor without worrying about falling in debt or having an expense. The people who will need medical support because they are sick require to take test or take medicine which is very expensive and there’s people who can’t afford it and won’t buy it and they just waste money on going to the doctor since they can’t afford the medications. When theres healthcare for all, everyone can come in and take a look at what they have even if it’s not major or not and probably we could have a higher number rate of how long we live.

I personally think that health care does help. It may have some disadvantages but it does help when you need to go to the doctor or need some medicine. I also think that it would help a lot for parents that have a lot of kids and need to take their kids to the doctor for their yearly check up and if they have health care it helps them. And if the person has to go into surgery it may help them reduce the money to where they can afford it and be able to get the medical attention they need.

Health care should be provided to all who, people don’t deserve to suffer just cause they can’t afford it. People shouldn’t be neglected care or especially put in debt to fix them. Not everyone can afford the care, treatment or checkup they need to be sure they haven’t gotten sick. They hope to not come to be with any disease seeing as it’s always so expensive for the treatments. People deserve to be able to fight for their life’s and make it out without worrying that they’ll be in debt afterwards.

I think that healthcare should be universal, because as we saw in most of the videos, all the people with free healthcare seemed much happier than those in the U.S, even Cuba a 3rd world country seemed happier than Americans; because of the fact that, those people don’t have To pay back money to insurance companies as their healthcare is paid for by their taxes. Furthermore those who do qualify for health insurance will likely be denied for one service on another because as said by one of the broad member “we deny payment, not care” further reinforcing the fact that the companies in charge of your payment want to limit the amount of money spent on your health. In addition I think it is morally wrong for large companies to put a price tag on someone’s well being

Health care should be free and of access for all Americans, because we can’t continue to lose lives over things that can be prevented. I find it very peculiar and odd that third and second world countries provide universal health care and are able to provide for their citizens but, America which is such a dominant country continues to have problems providing health care for their citizens. Many Americans have served and fought for America and have lost things such as limbs or just a clear mental state and they continue to suffer on the daily bases due to America not having free health care for all. Health care company’s want what’s best for the company.... they rather make money for the company and have an American citizen die, than to help a life!

My Theory: America is very selfish about giving free health care out to people who need it due to wanting to keep control of the population. If the population becomes to big the economic development of American may deflate.

So, first you said that “lower income won’t have to worry” referring to the increase in taxes. That insinuates that the rich would have to worry, which I’m the long term is not good for the economy or the people as a whole. The reason being is that if the rich are taxed at a higher rate they will eventually just leave the country and start up business in another one. This means that the GDP and available jobs will decrease, especially since the rich people are normally the ones with the larger businesses that provide much of the employment. So if they take their businesses and leave then the economy will go down, the standard of living will also decrease. So all this will do is hurt people. P.S sorry for using “so” a lot.

America became the strongest economy in a he world by its capitalistic nature, which means it runs on supply and demand. For reference look at Venezuela, it used to be capitalistic but then turned into a dictatorship and their economy collapsed. Now, when our country became the top do you competition why do we change that principle for healthcare? All it is doing is taking away the consumers power, lining insurance companies pockets, and raising the prices of treatment for those how are pushed away from having insurance. If we could choose our doctors and didn’t have to worry about the highly inflated costs of medicine, mainly due to the insurance companies, then our doctors would be forced to lower their prices and raise their quality or else they wouldn’t get any money. This has already been shown to be true with areas such as Lasik Eye surgery or the clinics that have been pooping out in Walmart’s and other stores.

While I'm more on the fence on this issue because I haven't had a chance to research this on my own from what I've seen so far I think private healthcare can be beneficial as long as health care companies are forced to compete. In the video we watched the news reporter said that if healthcare companies were forced to reveal their prices they would be able to compete with each other which would eventually lead to them lowering their prices. While universal healthcare would lead to taxes rising in cost due to the government having to pay for it.

I believe health should be in place, but there should be a balance with how it works. I believe that paying some out of pocket expenses such as physicals (any expense that isnt too much) can be paid by the majority of the population. But when it comes to surgeries and all that, I think we need to have the help of insurance. And since were not paying the insurance for the small and constant fees, the cost for insurance should drop considering that we dont have many surgeries a year (if our body regulates normally). If we have conditions that require frequent surgeries or any other constant expensive treatments, there should be a special insurance for them that can balance out the pay so that they dont have to worry about how they have to pay or anything like that.

I think you should pat for your health care because when health care is free, the amount of times you wait for the procedures is long. However, when you pay for your health care you can get it when you need it. The longer you wait, the is a higher chance of your injury/ illness to get worse.

Through the ages, America has made many reforms. Prisons, restaurants, factories, and other places have been scrutinized by the law for decades before getting where they are today. Now, the healthcare system has been put under the microscope, and I believe it would be best to find a solution, not with total government control, but by balancing out how much we spend with how much the government spends for us.

One thing to realize is that healthcare as it is, while it is certainly a flawed and confusing system, has its merits. It allows those who need help to get help while not spending all their money when Jimmy across the street gets an ouchie on his kneecap. The laundry list of procedures serves two purposes. Firstly, it stops people wasting money on random procedures, and secondly, it helps to gauge how much money they can spend on one of millions of people. Their monetary supply isn't limitless, and that's important to remember. Basically, though it has room to improve, health insurance is a useful business that can help you manage your own money while providing help to those who need it.

Private health care is the best option as people should only be able to spend the money they have. When people are spending other people's money they seem to forget that its not their money which makes them spend for things they absolutely do not need. If people were to pay for their own health care then they would care for themselves more and we would be a healthier country. Until then people will continue to feed their needs off of other healthy people's money and will continue to eat unhealthy and put their health in risk.

I can somewhat agree with what you are saying. The abuse of service argument definitely makes sense. I feel that if their is going to be universal healthcare, the patients should meet a certain requirements to receive free care based on the extremity of their case. For instance, someone with a scratch on the knee shouldn’t go to the doctor just because it is free. Someone that needs surgery (not cosmetic) should receive free health care because it is detrimental to their health. Someone on their death bed should receive free health care. I hope you can understand my response.

If we have free universal healthcare then anybody would be able to get what they want, no matter the cost or the procedure. This can cause every hospital to be full to the point where lines are up to months. If we were to be responsible for our own health care then those taxes wouldn't come out of out paychecks. We would have more gross pay that we can then decide if we want to use that money for actual healthcare. If we were under free universal healthcare, taxes would increase, because at the end of the day someone still has to pay for that procedure and our taxes would be used to cover people who are using the healthcare. By being responsible for our own health care, we would become more aware of the cost of a procedure and by being aware, we might cut back of procedures that aren't necessarily needed.

Private health care has the potential to be successful in America. If businesses utilize HSA for their employees, it will push them to use their benefits more sparingly. This will lead to insurance companies saving money and able to support some of their more dependent customers.

My opinion is based solely on my family and I's experiences with healthcare. With the current plan we have, it covers all the expenses we have, and we typically have a hefty sum of money left over.

I agree with you statement. It would be best if we could get our basic needs met without having to pay an excessive amount of money👍

I support this claim because it is true, they named it wrong. It could also be confusing to some people since it says public people might think it’s free.

I agree with what you said, but I don’t think she should just stay the same, I feel like we should do something to improve our healthcare system.

That's why we should make it universal and helpful like Cuba.

It's true that nothing in this world is free but we can at least make healthcare more available to low income groups.

I agree, because while it may not be possible to get COMPLETELY free without drawbacks, there should at least be something help low income households without taking advantage of them or denying certain things
