Ethical Issues in Public Health and Health Services (HCA302)

ANSWER


Health care is one of the pressing issues in the United States. For the last one century, there have been several attempts to provide universal heath care system like in other developed country. Among the developed countries, the United States is the only country that does not have a universal health care system.  Despite the country spending a larger proportion of its revenues on health care than any other country in the world, it is still ranked poor in term of quality of health can healthcare access and affordability.  Healthcare remains one of the most politicized issues in the country and for the last few decades, the lawmakers have just applied bandage to cover the gaping wound without providing a real solution to the problem.  However each and every time the congress put a new act into place, more Americans suffer from the effect of the new heath care act. We can say that the whole system is just in a mess and needs to be overhauled in order to put in place working mechanism that will ensure increased health care coverage.  We have more than 48 millions Americans who are not under any insurance cover and the number is growing each and every day.   This means that majority of Americans depend on the divine will not to get sick gambling with their health very day.  According to our forefathers, our independence was founded on freedom and equal rights for all. To enjoy these rights, we need to be healthy. However, in the current United States, health care is privilege from few individuals rather than a right for all.   Healthcare has become a privilege for the employed and the rich who are either provided with an insurance cover by their employers, or they have enough annual income to cover their health care needs.  This paper would like to restate that health care in the United States is a privilege for those who have and not a right for all Americans.
