I have look examined our Health Care Crisis in this country quite alot for various school papers and what not. From my personal observations and my research it seems the best solution is to adopt more or less what Canada and most other industrialized nations have for health-care, which is a single-payer sort of system. Total coverage health insurance for everyone.
Think about it: No deductibles, no insurance premiums, or people with-out health-care coverage, or those people tying up the emergency room and driving up costs because they cant afford to get there problem taken care of at a clinic.
The system would be financed much the same way Medicare and Medicaid are. In fact these two systems are known to be much less expensive and wasteful then normal Insurance or even HMO's because the extra overhead for marketing and 6 figure CEO salaries is not there.
Anybody have an opinion on this???3 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
