Health Care Reform And National ID Cards

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), the upcoming health insurance mandate (Obamacare) does not kick in until the year 2014 but it has already created controversy. If certain groups collectively decide not to participate in government health care are we then to deny them medical attention? All Medicare Supplement policies must offer the same basic benefits regardless of which insurance company sells the plan. When asked to describe the quality of their health insurance, 66 percent claimed it was “good” to “excellent,” and 74 percent used the same terms to describe the quality of their health care.\n\nMedicare came into existence with the Social Security Act of 1963, when signed by President Lyndon Johnson as a way to provide medical coverage for citizens of the age 65 or older as well as those with special conditions who may qualify for these benefits before the age of 65. People who have had permanent resident status in the United States for 5 consecutive years are also eligible if over the age of 65. Those younger then 65 qualify if they are disabled and collecting social security benefits.\n\nIn fact, the business tax corporations will now be required to pay is so small that employer payroll taxes can be expanded to include National Health Care and still produce an overall tax liability lower than what corporations are currently required to pay.\n\nFact – The primary reason for rate hikes is to cover the skyrocketing cost of health care (i.e. $100 for an aspirin). The private health insurance mentioned by OHIP is essentially the same insurance plan that covers you when traveling outside Ontario. The country’s government has become serious in improving the system of healthcare in Malaysia.\n\nHowever, the primary category that the insurance companies deal with is the policies which come with the increased monthly premiums. Certain people say they want healthcare reformed, and rightfully so because it’s having such a damaging effect on our economy.
