Medicare for all

There are many people in the U.S. that would hesitate to go to the hospital even though their sickness or injury is urgent. The reason for this is the medical bills. The United States Federal Government Should Enact the Medicare-For-All Act of 2019. The criterion are looking towards today is which side does more benefit than harm. 

People can take care of their health insurance, save so much more money, and improve job quality.

With Medicare-For-All, people will have their health insurance covered. This will solve so many people’s problems because many are always reluctant to go to the hospital for a simple checkup because of the costs, but now, that would not be a problem. This new system will take care of simple checkups, dental health, eyeglasses, and much more.

There are so many people struggling with health insurance. 27.5 million people do not currently have healthcare insurance in the United States. 45% of uninsured adults said that the high cost of coverage was the reason they remained uninsured. And going into another passage of this website, “Single-payer is an umbrella term for multiple approaches. In essence, single-payer means your taxes would cover health expenses for the whole population.”

This could make such a big impact in saving so many people’s insurance and expenses and for people with serious medical conditions. They do not need to worry about facing the hospital when Enacting the Medicare-For-All Act of 2019.

Enacting the Medicare-For-All Act of 2019 will save so much more money with a single-payer system. Today, the current system is known to be the most expensive health-care system in the modern world. It is also one of the least effective. 

According to TheHill, written by Diane Archer, on February 24, 2020, “We do away with three-quarters of the estimated $812 billion the U.S. now spends on health care administration. … this puts a costly burden on providers. Administrative savings from Medicare for All would be about $600 billion a year. Savings on prescription drugs would be between $200 billion and $300 billion a year… wealthy countries pay for their drugs.” 

Hospitals would always spend too much time dealing with difficult prices and a variety of insurance companies. Still, if it comes to enacting the Medicare-For-All, they would be able to settle all that out because they already spend too much time dealing with the economy.

Finally, overall, the United States’ job quality will improve. By enacting, labor markets will display a much better way of functioning.  With the current, expensive system, most employers, who are paying a big part of the health care, are also taking care of medical billing and insurance. However, we would not need anymore, and the federal government will be thinking about introducing more jobs towards the delivery of health care itself. According to EPI, written by Josh Bivens, on March 5, 2020, “But despite oft-repeated claims of large-scale job losses, a national program that would guarantee health insurance for every American would not profoundly affect the total number of jobs in the U.S. economy. In fact, such reform could boost wages and jobs and lead to more efficient labor markets that better match jobs and workers.” And specifically, employers’ salaries and pay will boost up because they are now redirecting their money to their work wages instead of health care itself. Another way is that all jobs will advance in a health care guarantee, improving the quality of working and introducing more people, who will now have less stress in job hunting. These are just a few positive effects. By enacting, we can start forming a solution towards the Job Conflict we have in the United States.
