Health Care Reform And The Nightmare Of Trump And His Administration

The American nation is facing new challenges in regards to health care reform. The vast majority of the population is confronting problems with health care and the system. What will happen to ACA, and how are services going to be delivered when people receive health care? The nation is under confusion as to what the future will bring if this bill policy does not proceed and work in revamping the health care and its components. In order to understand how health insurance works and the difficulty that it is confronting, Congress should take a look at how other countries are managing this situation. We should be looking at how other countries manage their health care insurance and its system in order to get adequate services and understand what it implies. One of these countries is Canada. The government makes sure that everyone has health insurance. The government makes sure that everyone is covered with some type of medical services.

The negotiation that is under the ACA comprises people’s health at a high cost. According to the Kaiser Foundation tracking poll, 74 percent think that president Trump and his administration should do what they have to do in order to make the ACA work. On the other hand, 19 percent think that President Trump should let the ACA reform fail. Eighty-one percent of the democrats think that President Trump will not deliver what he has promised and the other 79 percent said that the president and half of the republicans should do whatever he can to make the policy bill work. As for the supporters, 53 percent think that he could make the ACA reform work. Thirty-five percent think that he should make the law fail.

Even though there are differences between his followers and the senate, these differences in percentage demonstrate that even though the bill was approved it has already started on the wrong foot. It is a huge concern not knowing how medical services are going to be provided. Many worries fall into play and there is an immense gap that needs to be considered. At the end who is going to pay for a high price is the people that are in poverty, people that fall under the gap, children, seniors and people with pre-existing conditions? Statistics continue to demonstrate that in this system of government the president does not have the power to do what he is proposing to do. Only congress has the power to act in this arena and it is very unlikely for historical and political reasons that congress would ever undertake his opinions. This leaves questions that the public has such as under what criteria will a person be enrolled in a health insurance? What kind of services will people receive under the ACA? What are the pros and cons for the children, people with pre-existing conditions, elderly and people that fall under the gap line? If it is implemented, from what sources will funds be available, and how is this going to affect people in different states?

ACA was signed into law on March 23, 2010. What has been its effect? Statistics demonstrate that the president’s decisions about the health care reform are not concise. It makes people wonder whether he really wants to deal with this situation that he is confronting. There are chances that he wants to repeal this bill of policy. What will happen to the people that will most probably opt out due to the circumstances that the health insurance market place is bringing, especially to the people that fall under the poverty line? This leaves us to think about what is going to happen to many of the health programs that are in place. Other polls demonstrate that the future of the health care reform is uncertain. These disparities will bring problems to people that live under the poverty line when accessing services. Not everyone will have the opportunity to receive full benefits under their health insurance.
