Funding health care services has become one of the most controversial issues in the United States today. This is because over the years, healthcare bill has been on the rise and as the country grapples with a struggling economy, the current health care bill is not sustainable in the long term.  It is evident that although most people do not want to take responsibility, the government will have to increase taxes or increase out-of-pocket expenses to ensure the current health care bill is sustainable. Although the government still provide funding for most healthcare services, the rising healthcare bill calls for the New York state to seek alternative ways of funding ambulatory healthcare services, long-term care health services, and behavioral healthcare services.
