Roosevelt again favors creating National Health Insurance. Great Depression pushes it back for Social Security.

1942-1945: Due to the 2nd World War, Businesses compete for employees by adding benefits (i.e. health insurance) and increasing pay
President Truman requests Congress to create a National Insurance program.
Denounced as "socialized medicine" by AMA

Family Affair
Women were primary caretakers

Few scientifically practiced procedures
Doctors lacked modern type of credentials
"Bone-setters" and Surgeons
Life Threatening/Serious illness common
...No health insurance
In the mid 1800's hospitals were for the first
time being built by cities.
- Physician held the power and authority
-Everyone was treated under one roof without
the convenience of a private room

1846- American Medical Association (AMA) established...health insurance still undeveloped
Dorothea Dix
Land-Grant Bill for indigent and insane people passes in 1854
Bill was advocated and assisted by Dix through Congress
President Franklin Pierce vetoes bill
Believes responsibility lies with state
-Dallas Teacher's pay of 50 cents/month provides 21 days of hospital care per year.
...still no health insurance for those who do not qualify
And then this happened...
1988: Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act expands coverage for medication and other out of pocket expenses.
2008: Hillary Clinton campaigns major Health Plan but lost Democratic nomination to Barack Obama
2010: Affordable Health Care Act was signed by President Obama into law.
2012: Supreme Court upholds law with a final vote of 5-4
So, what will happen?
PCIP plans disappear to make way for Affordable Care Act

Future for the Uninsured.
51 million (18.9%)
23 million (8.7%)
19 million- nonelderly adults
37% eligible for Medicaid but not enrolled
25% undocumented immigrants
16% exempt from individual mandate due to inability to afford
8% eligible for affordable subsidized coverage in market place
14% subject to mandate but have too high of income to qualify for subsidy
What should the uninsured expect?
Difficulty in finding affordable sources of healthcare
Two to Four times as much in charges as insured individuals
50%-250% more in physician charges
New England Journal of Medicine- http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp1011502
...still have no health insurance
1986: President Reagan signs COBRA into effect
In 1960, JFK campaigned for elderly health care
Did not make it through Congress
As we know through history, the Kennedy family has always been strong advocates for healthcare reform
A large scale set of surveys that served as a source of data on the cost and use of healthcare and health insurance coverage
As transplant financial coordinators we will be responsible for informing each uninsured patient about multiple options available for health care coverage.
Same theme of issues for over 165 years may be coming to an end.
Most Consumers in Marketplaces Will Be Eligible for Subsidies to Lower the Cost of Coverage
