Bernie Sanders’ Single Payer Health Care – Medicare for AllPosted by Neeta on Feb 24, 2016 in Health Insurance | Comments Off on Bernie Sanders’ Single Payer Health Care – Medicare for All
Bernie Sanders’ Single Payer Health Care alias “Medicare for All” offer health care financing by a single public or semi-public agency but the healthcare delivery remains mostly with private firms. Under this system, all US citizens will be covered for all medical services, including doctor, preventive healthcare, hospital, dental health, mental health, vision health, reproductive health and prescription drugs and other medical amenities costs. There are pros and cons of Single Payer Health Care, but it will replace the several current useless, profit-oriented insurance providers with a single, yet organized public provider and new moderate taxes founded on an ability to pay.
The Single Payer system will eliminate premiums and 95% of a common household can save money. People would not anymore have to face barriers like deductibles and co-pays, and would retain a free choice of healthcare professional and hospital. Doctors would once again acquire an independence regarding treatment of patients.
Due to the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare), over 17 million Americans acquired health insurance and its aim is to reach 30 million American people. Medicaid is now available in 31 states through which several low-income Americans obtained coverage. Through this system, up to the age of 26 anyone can benefit from their parents’ health plan.
Now the objective of universal health care is to be further achieved based on the success of ACA because still 29 million citizens don’t have health insurance coverage and million others are underinsured because of not affording the high payments charged by private insurance providers. The Single Payer Healthcare System is looking forward to achieving this objective.
