Will Democrats Pass Affordable Health Insurance Reform?

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. The White Paper does not say how this will be done specifically (details are to be published at a later date) and how well the plan will work remains to be seen but the important point to note is that the Government wants to embrace a notion of holistic care.\n\nBecause those who have Medicare coverage are usually retired persons with fixed income the cost of having to purchase and maintain a Medigap policy can be cost prohibitive. Qualified ex-employees-those who were let go as a result of a layoff or downsizing between September 2008 and December 2009-were able to take advantage of affordable health insurance made possible by the government’s subsidization.\n\nAbout 47 million people currently lack health insurance in the United States. One of the realms in which the US should manage to make reformation, thus, is the health care provisions and policies. Large businesses usually provide their employees with insurance plans that cover drugs, vision, dental and additional health services.\n\nEdwards previously has proposed that employers be required to provide health coverage to workers or pay into a government fund to support insurance and allow workers to choose among plans. After that, insurance rates will triple for many people, as they are again forced to shoulder the full cost of a policy.\n\nThis is why the insurance costs are low and within an affordable range. Some believed that such wasteful spending is inevitable when the federal government is involved, making their support of a public option (effectively taking the form of “Medicare for all” health insurance plan) ludicrous.

Affordable Health Insurance An Absolute Bargain

The fight over healthcare reform has reached the Senate, and may take longer than previously expected. Edwards said Detroit, where General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co. and DaimlerChrysler AG’s Chrysler Group spend $16 billion annually on health care costs and are expected to pay $114 billion in future retiree benefits, is indicative of health care ailments felt nationwide.\n\nThe escalating costs of Medicare have been the cause of a good deal of concern from the government, and they’re doing all they can to counter Medicare fraud. When applying for business grants, new entrepreneurs can expect to be required to submit a business plan that highlights the company goals, mission, services and products, target market and more.\n\nThe health savings account may be used to pay for deductibles, coinsurance and other qualified healthcare expenses (Section 213(d) of the Internal Revenue Code), on a tax-free basis. One of the most controversial aspects of healthcare reform is the public option, which would create a federal government-run alternative to private health insurance plans.\n\nHe also said his plan would require health insurance companies to spend at least 85 percent of the premiums they collect on patient care, adding that 30 percent of insurance premiums currently go toward administrative expenses and profit. The present feather on the US cap regarding health care are the two programs of Medicare and Medicaid which are in their own turns under criticism.\n\nIf a couple would like to get a policy, each individual would have to buy a separate Medicare Supplement policy.
