Health Insurances – Are they Compulsory?

The compulsory health insurance has been the talk of the town since Obama began the reform of health care. Some people believe it is unconstitutional to impose on the citizens to have health insurance. Others think that by avoiding the non-payment of abusing the system. Which side is on the debate? More importantly, if it is indeed how it will affect the traditional health insurance coverage?

Well, contrary to what some believe compulsory health insurance is not a new concept. Indeed, in Massachusetts forced the idea since 2007. It was two years before the election of Obama. The end results of this bill have been positive and negative. On the positive side, there was insurance for everyone. But a price was paid for these options. Indeed, according to Wikipedia, compulsory insurance in Massachusetts has increased by ten percent of all costs related to health. Accordingly, there is an increase in the group unhappy people who are too poor for health insurance, but too rich for Medicaid.

The situation would be worse if there is a compulsory health insurance was initiated at the federal level. President Obama hoped to assuage the problem of providing government insurance, but this is certainly not a panacea. If the insurance costs the government $ 100 or more per month, a person makes $ 20K or less per year can not afford it. This is especially true after subtracting the main cost of living. In fact, some families, the health insurance bill that may affect their ability to put food on the table!

If the compulsory health insurance is required to work, there must be inspection of the entire system. Fresh as a whole must come down to making health care affordable for everyone. It should also be a cultural push towards preventative health care. It starts at home, not in the doctor’s office. With the way American culture is now a lot of people think they can swallow a pill to solve all their problems. These are the guys who should be punished … not those who are simply too poor to afford insurance. But to achieve this, health professionals generally have a different approach though. Instead of trying to avoid paying debts, they must find a way where they can get the best of both worlds. More importantly, they need to think about the needs of the people and less about their wallets.
