Comparative Effectiveness 20% Republicans approve

56% democrats approve

48% of independents approve -85% favor requirement that insurance companies cover people with pre-existing conditions

-7/10 supports allowing children under 26 to stay on their parents' health plan

-77% supports discounts that reduced the Medicare prescription drug coverage gap Most opposed factor:
requirement that Americans must obtain health insurance 7/10 disapprove often referred to as "unconstitutional" Religious/Ethical Aspect 1940's - 1960's people with different beliefs (religion) opposed paying for insurance that covered contraceptive services (abortion, birth control, etc.) Can non-religious people decide that they do not want to pay for the same reasons as those who are religious? 1970's - 1980's: religious freedom?
people can claim that they are religious Obama changed policy. Main Points & Impact: Beneficial for the people? 1960's - 1970's 1980's - 2000's: purpose of insurance VS. mandatory cost of buying insurance Low income VS High Income those who approve: personal health expenditures increased dramatically and the GNP for medical care tripled ever since 1950 (increased 4% each year) people who needed more medical attention
extremely moralistic people who believe it is fair to provide nation-wide health insurance less than 10% of the nation had health care insurance both private and public roles of health care insurance increased dramatically: 82.5% of the population had health care insurance government expenditures, such as Medicare and Medicaid, grew fourteen-fold (from $2.5 to $37 billion) in 1984, insurance coverage for major health care costs covered 73% of U.S. population (previously only 23%) growth of expenditures on medical care was increasingly becoming a public concern by 1977, 82% of the population had employment-related health insurance (85% of insured employees and their families were covered by a major medical policy here) share of GNP dedicated to medical care added up to 4.4% or a little less in 1974, federal government created the Rand Health Insurance Experiment (HIE) to address concerns on insurance and prices premiums exceeded $17 billion and private health insurance grew (due to the tax treatment in 1970) sometime between the 1970's and 80's, healthcare insurance started becoming the big deal it is today What Are The Options? YES? NO? The national debt plays a huge role in the decision to reform and modify the health care system to be at its most beneficial state.

Obama's actions to rebuild the system have ultimately benefited the middle class, but the length of this benefit is unlikely to last. Why? Recently, a popular method to help aid in lessening the burden of the federal debt known as sequestration has risen as a possible solution.

Sequestration is the process of using spending cuts to help control the federal budget. In spite of hopes that sequestration will provide enough help to keep back the looming presence of the national debt, the process alone has detrimental consequences.

Sequestration alone will cost an estimated loss of jobs and weaken economic growth by at least half a percent. Behind The Scenes The Breakdown 700,000 Debt and Medicare The current sequestration methods have not been inciting change within entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare. A Probable Solution! Considering these aspects, reform for Medicare would involve more meticulous managing of its spending costs, and cuts would have to be made to other entitlement programs as well to maintain economic stability if any benefit comes to place. Alongside these potential benefits, however, there are indeed negative outcomes that can surface. The Medicare system does not necessarily have to be "fixed" at this point in time.

Medicare spending has decreased to such a point that by 2020, spending would be about $126 billion less than what was previously predicted.

President Obama's Affordable Care Act has also caused many doctors to drop service fees for each visit. The Answer? Though both extremes have positive and negative consequences, what needs to be stressed is the idea of balance. Sequestration Cuts to Medicare Moderate Medicare Spending GOAL Moderate Cuts Interview: Willa Horton 1966: Medicaid and Medicare newly introduced by Lyndon Johnson in the 1940's until the 1970's, health care insurance was still a new, untested idea problems on health care insurance starting arising during the 1970's Case Manager at City of Hope the national system of public health insurance first introduced in Truman's administration (1945) between 1940's and 60's, number of people with health insurance plans was 7 times larger (75% people were covered) attempts made to assist the poor, unemployed, and elderly dating back to Truman's administration, the presidents are still fighting to enforce universal health care insurance Determines if a patient needs to stay at the hospital. "75% people are fully covered..." predicted cost of health care in the US in 2012... $2.8 trillion
