WHAT IS CONSIDERED FAIR FOR AMERICANS IN HEALTHCARE STANDARDS & PRACTICES?? SHOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR CONGRESS TO PARTAKE IN AS WELL!
Regardless of what political party you associate with? Healthcare costs have risen through the roof for ALL Americans. Premiums have skyrocketed! Doctor's are getting paid less and are opting out. Big pharma has "out of control RX price padding and is gouging all Americans. SENIORS are having to choose from eating or medications because of their squatty income through social security which hasn't had a decent cost of living raise in 8 years!
Illegal immigrants do not pay into the system yet get free hospital care, which in turn gets passed on to the hospital and the hospital passes it on to the patients and insurance companies via higher billing practices. It's an endless cycle of craziness!
We are relying on politicians (not licensed health insurance specialists and doctors) to make health care options for Americans that simply DO NOT work! Perhaps if they had Obamacare versus the completely free healthcare they get for life? They would have a change of heart in moving these policies into action that works for all Americans. I believe OBAMACARE needs adjusting more that repealing completely though...Obamacare has some valid important parts that should remain intact. These are:
1). Coverage for all Americans. I SUGGEST CHANGING THIS TO ALL LEGALIZED AND NATURAL CITIZENS. LETS FACE IT...THE ILLEGALS ARE BLEEDING THE SYSTEM DRY CAUSING AN INBALANCE OF PREMIUM INTAKE VS. EXPENDITURES IN CLAIMS. THEY DONT PAY INTO THE SYSTEM, THEREFORE THE COSTS ARE PASSED ONTO YOU!!!
2). ANOTHER KEEPER? ELIMINATION OF PRE EXISTING CONDITION CLAUSES AND MAX CAPS. What is the point of having insurance if you cannot use it for what you need it most??? That's a no Brainer!! Why pay premiums if they won't even cover your health problem?? It's no wonder people are defaulting and would rather pay the fine! All should be covered for all that ails them!
3). Free Wellness care. THIS MAKES SENSE! GUYS ESPECIALLY HATE GOING TO THE DOCTOR UNLESS THEY ARE PRACTICALLY DYING...THEY DONT WANT TO SPEND THE MONEY! So what happens?? They get sick and finally go...and guess what? It's going to cost thousand's now for their care!! If they had free wellness visits and went to get a checkup, earlier on? They might have caught it in time, thus keeping the costs down, and quite possibly saving their life!! Those savings are passed on to premium setting. But with higher costs? Comes higher premiums to make up the deficit. So these free mammograms and wellness physical checkups should STAY.
4). KIDS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO REMAIN ON THEIR PARENTS PLAN UNTIL THE AGE OF TWENTY SIX. Most businesses do not offer health insurance unless you are a full time employee. This allows kids to be covered while moving forward to college and graduate school without fear of losing healthcare coverage. It's difficult to work full time (just to be insured) and to keep up with studies. If you are a nursing student? Forget working! You cannot when you have clinicals to work as part of your studies. So I support continuing coverage for kids.
Changes? What's good for us should be good for Congress too! Americans spend alot of money insuring politicians and who thinks this is fair? The PRESIDENT, the Vice PRESIDENT, and Secretary of State is acceptable and they deserve it. But Congress? No. I and many others do not think it is fair. I used to be licensed in health insurance and I have been a patient many times so I have seen both sides of this fence. Here is what I propose...
I propose a "flat rate" system based on income. Kind of like a flat rate tax. Example: 3% of your income per year would go towards health care yearly premiums. 2% if you are over 65. This way (because everyone's income is different?) it hits everyone's wallet proportionately and equally, relevant to their income. The exception would be those on disability and Medicaid. There should be no premium cost their. We should have tiers and columns based on both age and income. It hard to explain without graphing it out but bottom line? Change needs to happen and if it takes a Presidential executive order for Congress to be on the same health care plan as all Americans? Perhaps they will think hard and twice about the health, safety and well being of us all! Are you in?? Let's get this to President Trump! This will jump start them to work harder at covering all American fairly!! Let's do this!!! SIGN AND SHARE!!
