Over the past weekend I discovered two articles concerning the issues with the Massachusetts health care system.
Because Obamacare was modeled following the Massachusetts plan, the failures in Massachusetts really are a harbinger of products in the future. I particularly such as the second article, partially since i like Samuelson, and partially while he concurs beside me (I believe he reads my blog).
For those who have read my prior posts, there’s not new during these reports. The Massachusetts plan, including an Obama-like insurance mandate, has elevated the amount of insured, mainly among healthy youthful adults. However, it’s also led to crowded emergency rooms, elevated waits, and greater costs. Strong lobbying efforts have blocked politicians from cutting charges compensated to doctors and hospitals. Growing costs have led to greater insurance costs which businesses can’t afford, resulting in patients being dumped in to the condition system. The condition, already within the throes of the recession, must deal with these elevated costs.
The federal government is trying to limit insurance costs by fiat, however in the finish are only able to prevail for the short term, and can ultimately fail. Eventually single-payer/government takeover would be the only alternative, that we will talk about later. The outline of occasions is much like the scenario I’ve formerly outlined for Obamacare.
Regardless of how noble the actual intention, reality usually prevails. This may also be the theme of topics I’ll be taking on within the next couple of days. I’ll be analyzing thorough the outcome of Weight problems, drugs, alcohol, violence and smoking on healthcare outcomes and charges, and then try to initiate a dialogue by what role personal responsibility should play in healthcare. I may also be analyzing an essential and barely discussed facet of American healthcare the astonishing amount of cash, some time and emotional effort Americans dedicate to useless or perhaps dangerous practices, things i will call the function of magic in healthcare. More in the future.
