The pH of surface oceans has dropped by 0.1 units since the industrial revolution and if fossil fuel combustion continues at present rates, the pH of the world s oceans will probably drop another 0.3 to 0.4 units by 2100. The surface ocean is not the only area being impacted by ocean acidification OA. As the world s oceans become more acidic, marine organisms corals, plankton, calcareous algae, and mollusks that build skeletons, tests, and shells of calcium carbonate will be negatively impacted, which will likely lead to cascading effects throughout marine food webs, including commercial and recreational fisheries. This session will address the potential economic and biological impacts of ocean acidification on commercial and recreational fisheries, with particular emphasis on shellfish aquaculture. ...

... Skin Care Acne. Bioelements Review Series: Breakout Control. One of the best Bioelements products that I've tried to date is Bioelements Breakout Control. This is a product that is meant to be an "adult acne lotion" and can be used as a preventive lotion 1-2 times per day on the entire face or as a trouble shooter for problem areas. Breakout control is a 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide lotion, which makes it essentially the same product as Proactive's Repairing Lotion. Except, that this product is not Proactive's Lotion, because it is simply better. I tried decreasing to once a day lotion and then once every other day, but the issues with irritation persisted. I tried the Proactive products meant for those with dryness, but this made my acne worse. Since that time my face has finally started to clear up quite a bit, though I do have blemishes around a certain time each month, and at times of stress. When I saw that the active ingredient in Breakout Control was also 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide, I was anticipating many ...

(1/2110) Variation in hepatitis C services may lead to inequity of heath-care provision: a survey of the organisation and delivery of services in the United Kingdom.

BACKGROUND: Chronic hepatitis C infection (CHC) is a major healthcare problem. Effective anti-viral therapy is available. To maximise population effectiveness, co-ordinated services for detection and management of patients with CHC are required. There is a need to determine patterns of healthcare delivery to plan improvements. A study was conducted to determine workload, configuration and care processes of current UK services available to manage patients with CHC. METHODS: A cross-sectional questionnaire survey of consultant members of British Association for the Study of the Liver (n = 53), Infectious Disease consultants (n = 43), and a 1 in 5 sample of Genito-Urinary Medicine (n = 48) and gastroenterologists (n = 200). RESULTS: Response rate was 70%. 40% of respondents provided a comprehensive service (included treatment and follow-up): speciality of clinical leads identified as Hepatology (37%); Gastroenterology (47%); and Infectious Disease (16%). The estimated number of patients managed by respondents was about 23,000 with an upward trend over the previous 3 years. There was variation between comprehensive service providers, including unit size, eligibility criteria for treatment, and drug regimes. Key barriers to quality of care identified were staffing capacity, funding of treatment and patient non-attendance. Most English strategic health authorities had at least one comprehensive service provider. CONCLUSION: There was significant variation in all aspects of the patient pathway which may contribute to inequity of health care provision. Services need to be expanded to form geographical clinical networks, and properly resourced to ensure greater uptake and more equitable delivery of services if the future burden of chronic liver disease is to be reduced.  (+info)

(2/2110) Health care provision for illegal migrants: may health policy make a difference?

Illegal migrants in Europe are, generally, only entitled to emergency care and services for children and pregnant women. In 2002 legal changes in Spain made accessible medical cards and free medical care for illegal migrants in similar terms than the legal migrants or the Spanish population. We interviewed 380 migrants to assess whether there were differences on health services utilization by legal status. We did not find differences in the utilization of health services when ill between legal and illegal migrants. However, a significantly lower utilization of health services was associated with less education (RP = 0.4; 95% CI: 0.2-0.9).  (+info)

(3/2110) Ethnic segregation in Kosovo's post-war health care system.

BACKGROUND: Seven years after the end of war in Kosovo, Final Status Negotiations have begun to determine the long-term political future of the province. This article provides an overview of the present situation regarding ethnic groups and their relations in Kosovo's health care system that might be helpful in preparing for the array of potential ramifications and repercussions that could arise at the conclusion of the negotiations. METHODS: A review of the literature (including grey) was performed, and 16 interviews and two focus groups with key informants were conducted in Kosovo during October and November 2004. In addition, six informal discussions were held in-person or by telephone in London. Information collected in 2004 was re-confirmed and partially updated in October and November 2005, when three additional interviews were conducted in Kosovo. RESULTS: Ongoing ethnic tensions in Kosovo, mainly between the Albanian and Serb populations, perpetuate a rigidly segregated health care system. Some other minority communities, such as the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptians, are afflicted by the double burden of getting caught up in the middle of these ethnic disputes and at the same time suffering from poverty and discrimination. CONCLUSION: While efforts have been put forward to promote peace-building within Kosovo's post-war health sector, very little progress has been achieved in fostering ethnic integration, reconciliation, cooperation or even co-existence. This failure reflects Kosovo's broader unresolved inter-ethnic problems. Final Status Negotiations are one of the last opportunities for the international community to address the problems of ethnic segregation in the province.  (+info)

(4/2110) Motivation and relevance of emergency room visits among immigrants and patients of Danish origin.

BACKGROUND: We investigated the extent to which immigrants and patients of Danish origin have different motivations for seeking emergency room (ER) treatment, and differences in the relevance of their claims. METHODS: Data were obtained from a questionnaire survey of walk-in patients and their caregivers at four Copenhagen ERs. The patient survey was available in nine languages, and addressed patient-identified reasons for using the ER. Caregivers were asked if the claim was appropriate to the ER. 3809 patients and 3905 caregivers responded. The response rate among patients was 54%. Only questionnaires in which both patient and caregiver had responded, and in which data on the patient's nationality were available, were included in the analyses (n = 3426). The effect of region of origin was examined using bivariate, stratified analyses and tested for independence. RESULTS: More among immigrant patients than among patients of Danish origin had considered contacting a primary caregiver before visiting the ER, and more immigrants reported going to the ER because they could not contact a general practitioner, or could not explain their problem on the telephone. Compared to immigrants, more patients of Danish origin explained that the ER was most relevant to their need. A higher proportion of claims among immigrants were seen by caregivers as not being appropriate to the ER. CONCLUSION: Migrants have more irrelevant ER claims, presumably because of barriers in access to primary care. Access to primary care should be facilitated for these groups. Alternatively, ERs could include primary care activities as part of their services.  (+info)

(5/2110) End-of-life care for nursing home residents dying from cancer in Nova Scotia, Canada, 2000-2003.

INTRODUCTION: With our population aging, an increasing proportion of cancer deaths will occur in nursing homes, yet little is known about their end-of-life care. This paper identifies associations between residing in a nursing home and end-of-life palliative cancer care, controlling for demographic factors. METHODS: For this population-based study, a data file was created by linking individual-level data from the Nova Scotia Cancer Centre Oncology Patient Information System, Vital Statistics, and the Halifax and Cape Breton Palliative Care Programs for all persons 65 years and over dying of cancer from 2000 to 2003. Multivariate logistic regression was used to compare nursing home residents to nonresidents. RESULTS: Among the 7,587 subjects, 1,008 (13.3%) were nursing home residents. Nursing home residents were more likely to be female [adjusted odds ratio (OR) 1.4, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.2-1.7], older (for > or = 90 vs 65-69 years OR 5.4, CI 4.1-7.0), rural (OR 1.5, CI 1.2-1.8), have only a death certificate cancer diagnosis (OR 4.2, CI 2.8-6.3), and die out of hospital (OR 8.5, CI 7.2-10.0). Nursing home residents were less likely to receive palliative radiation (OR 0.6, CI 0.4-0.7), medical oncology consultation (OR 0.2, CI 0.1-0.4), and palliative care program enrollment (Halifax OR 0.2, CI 0.2-0.3; Cape Breton OR 0.4, CI 0.3-0.7). CONCLUSION: Demographic characteristics and end-of-life services differ between those residing and those not residing in nursing homes. These inequalities may or may not reflect inequities in access to quality end-of-life care.  (+info)

(6/2110) Statins prescribing for the secondary prevention of ischaemic heart disease in Torino, Italy. A case of ageism and social inequalities.

BACKGROUND: Socio-demographic and clinical characteristics can influence statins prescribing for the secondary prevention of ischaemic heart disease (IHD). We studied the determinants of the prescription of statins in people with IHD in a population in Italy, the country with the lowest prescribing rate in Europe. METHODS: All 2001/2002 residents in Torino, aged 30-85 years, with a hospital discharge diagnosis of IHD were linked to the regional Database of Drug Prescriptions to identify those persons who, within 3 months after discharge, had been prescribed statins. Log-binomial models were used to test statins prescription associations with clinical and socio-demographic characteristics. RESULTS: Statins were prescribed to 31.0% of 7446 patients. Among persons >74 years of age, the prescription rate was 40% lower than that found for younger persons. A positive association was also found for: female gender, being married, a main discharge diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction, revascularization, diabetes and discharge from a cardiology ward. Age was an important effect modifier of the relationship between the prescribing rate and social, but not clinical, determinants. CONCLUSIONS: The prevention of IHD with statins is influenced by age, clinical and social factors. The prescribing rate is higher among population groups for whom statins are of proven efficacy. Among patients for whom the efficacy is uncertain, the decision to prescribe is influenced by non-clinical factors, suggesting that there exist both age-based and social-based mechanisms of rationing. Age and social determinants act in concert to further reduce the propensity of physicians to prescribe statins.  (+info)

(7/2110) Gender and health promotion: a multisectoral policy approach.

Women and men are different as regards their biology, the roles and responsibilities that society assigns to them and their position in the family and community. These factors have a great influence on causes, consequences and management of diseases and ill-health and on the efficacy of health promotion policies and programmes. This is confirmed by evidence on male-female differences in cause-specific mortality and morbidity and exposure to risk factors. Health promoting interventions aimed at ensuring safe and supportive environments, healthy living conditions and lifestyles, community involvement and participation, access to essential facilities and to social and health services need to address these differences between women and men, boys and girls in an equitable manner in order to be effective. The aim of this paper is to (i) demonstrate that health promotion policies that take women's and men's differential biological and social vulnerability to health risks and the unequal power relationships between the sexes into account are more likely to be successful and effective compared to policies that are not concerned with such differences, and (ii) discuss what is required to build a multisectoral policy response to gender inequities in health through health promotion and disease prevention. The requirements discussed in the paper include i) the establishment of joint commitment for policy within society through setting objectives related to gender equality and equity in health as well as health promotion, ii) an assessment and analysis of gender inequalities affecting health and determinants of health, iii) the actions needed to tackle the main determinants of those inequalities and iv) documentation and dissemination of effective and gender sensitive policy interventions to promote health. In the discussion of these key policy elements, we use illustrative examples of good practices from different countries around the world.  (+info)

(8/2110) Community capacity building and health promotion in a globalized world.

In this paper, community capacity building (CCB) is seen as part of a long-standing health promotion tradition involving community action in health promotion. The conceptual context of the term CCB is presented, and compared with other community approaches. The usage of the term is variable. It is submitted that its common features are (i) the concepts of capacity and empowerment (versus disease and deficiency), (ii) bottom-up, community-determined agendas and actions and (iii) processes for developing competence. A brief literature review looks at some of the main contributions from the 1990 s on, which reveal an emphasis on building competencies, the measurement of community capacity and the attempt to break CCB down into operational components. Academic research on the impact of CCB on health is lacking, but multiple case studies documented in the 'grey literature' suggest CCB is highly effective, as does research in related areas, such as community empowerment. Five contemporary case studies submitted by the contributing authors show both the range and efficacy of CCB applications. The concluding synthesis and recommendations say that what is needed for health promotion in a globalized world is a balance between global macro (policy, regulatory, etc.) actions and those of the human and local scale represented by CCB. It is concluded that action centred on empowered and capable communities, in synergistic collaboration with other key players, may be the most powerful instrument available for the future of health promotion in a globalized world.  (+info)

Why was healthcare passed?


  • My dad is now paying an extra 250 bucks a month thanks to obamacare. Anyway Republicans can repeal it? I still do not understand how it passed. I am a 19 yr old college student who wasn't old enough to vote for anything at the time.
  • The resulting legislation is more about health insurance reform than healthcare reform. Because the law was passed health insurance companies can no longer refuse to cover people who are already sick. Before the law was passed the health insurance companies could reject applicants who already had serious illnesses such as cancer, Parkisonism, or children with autism. Because of such a rejection medical treatment was out of reach for people suffering from such illnesses. In order to get the insurance companies to agree to stop their discriminatory practices the Senate and House members involved in drafting the bill met with members of the insurance companies. The insurance companies demanded that the government include a requirement in the law which mandates that every adult US citizen must buy insurance or else pay a penalty. The money the US citizens pay into the insurance industry will go towards covering the costs of taking care of not only healthy people who need minimal healthcare but also those who are very ill and require intensive health care. If there wasn't any mandate no one would buy the insurance until they get sick and there wouldn't be enough funds to cover all expenses. This is a basic summary of the explanation I've read over and over. This legislation passed by a combination of years of neglect to address the issues of helping people with pre-existing conditions and also the pressure being brought by several interest groups that want to change the American healthcare system. Some of these changes are needed like making coverage more affordable and accessible but this legislation does not cover the issue of cost. The legislation was passed by the politicans making many deals with the health insurance and pharmaceutical industry lobbyists. Also the President during his campaign promised that he'd help coverage become more affordable and speicifically said there would not be a mandate (requirement to buy insurance) forced on the American people. I remember him specifically saying this as he criticized Hillary Clinton who said her plan would require a mandate. I'm sorry your father has to endure this extra expense. It's happening all over. The legislation is supposed to even the costs out at some point but I'm not at all convinced. The health insurance companies are raising the premiums because they claim they now have to have the funds to provide extra care to all the people with pre-existing conditions. However, there has been only a very limited response by people with such illnesses. The policies being sold for them have very high premiums. So it's hard for me to tell exactly how effective everything is at this point. You'll hear that the law will expand coverage to millions of people. What is going to happen is that people who make less than $15000 a year will get healthinsurance and healthcare for free. From the income level of $15000 a year and up everyone will have to pay 8-10% of their yearly salary for an insurance policy that the government will have to approve of. These policies will deductibles of $2000 a year. Which means that in addition to the premium you'll have to pay $2000 of your own money before the insurance kicks in. And the policy will only reimburse at 70-80%. The government has promised subsidies to certain income groups to help pay for the insurance. I'm going to be honest with you. I will get a subsidy but even that will not help me afford my share of the premium. My basic expenses of rent, utilities, education and food, clothing consume almost all of my monthly salary. The government will then force me to pay a penalty if I don't get the coverage. How can I pay money I don't have? Repeal is a complicated process and as long as Obama is President he will veto any repeal the Republicans put forth. There are some parts that could be defunded but we'll have to see what happens. I think that they will try to stall the funding and implementation. If a Republican wins the Presidency in 2012 he or she might be able to repeal it but it's going to be a big fight. It's good you're questioning what's happening because it effects your future in many ways. Start writing letters and sending emails to your local officials and if you feel strongly about the issue get involved. I'd recommend you check out the reports available at the Kaiser Family Foundation. This foundation has many non-partisan reports and evaulations that will help you better understand what is happening. If you're interested in the Republican view you can check out the National Center for Policy Analysis. This is a conservative think tank www.ncpa.org and you can read the blog of Dr. John Goodwin about alternatives.


American Healthcare system?


  • What about the American Healthcare system? Satisfied or not?
  • We have the best healthcare in the world - we do have issues with the system - however single payor or "socialized" medicene is not the answer. We have more of a "lifestyle crisis" in America. Socialized or Singler payer systems are nothing more than a large government HMO. The only way to control costs is through managing access. This management of access is accomplished by delaying medically necessary services. Please see my review of the movie SICKO below: Thank You Michael Moore While Michael Moore does do one thing well with his recent box office release of SICKO - he brings attention to the American healthcare system. However, he simply falls down with regards to how well the system works for the majority of Americans. He also fails to mention the other side of socialized "single payer" medicine; in 2006 Britain's Department of Health reported that at any given time, nearly 900,000 Britons are waiting for admission to National Health Service hospitals, and shortages force the cancellation of more than 50,000 operations each year. In Sweden, the wait for heart surgery can be as long as 25 weeks, and the average wait for hip replacement surgery is more than a year. Canada is not immune to the issues either - in a March 2006 interview with Dr Brian Day, President of the Canadian Medical Association, he states "the Supreme Court stated that Canadians are suffering and dying on wait lists and that governments across the country have shown inertia in dealing with the plight of patients...... ....and they struck down the segments of the Quebec health law that outlawed private insurance for medically necessary services" so even Canada is looking toward private insurance as a solution to their issues. Did any American realize that burried deep in the 1000's of legislative pages of the early 90's "Hillary Care" that it was made a criminal act to pay cash to a physician? Do we really want the government to have complete control of our health care? There is a real problem with the uninsured in America, and as a Health Insurance Broker, I discuss with my clients how they as employers, myself as a broker and the health insurance carriers have a responsibility to get these people insured through innovative group and individual products. We have a large pool of healthy Americans who are not insured, we need them to step up and become part of the solution. In addition, we Americans need to take responsibility for our own health. A significant portion of medical claims are directly related to the American lifestyle (we as Americans have the resources to become fat and lazy). I feel that through employer sponsored wellness, consumerism and disease management programs we can continue down the road of a "healthy America". Result: a reduction of the large claims that have our healthcare spending spiraling out of control. Bottom line; Thank you Michael Moore for focusing Americans attention on a real problem - HealthCare, maybe your next film should be on the "American Lifestyle Crisis" - perhaps called "Glutton for Punishment".

How does American healthcare work?


  • I'm English, and basically, everybody pays in, and everybody gets helped on the National Insurance...Its not perfect but it works... But I know that in America you have to pay privately for insurance, and I want to understand how it works. Do you HAVE to have insurance by law, like Car Insurance? Or is it optional? If it is optional, what happens if you don't have insurance but you are involved in an accident and get taken for emergency care? Do you have to pay? What if you can't afford it? And are prescription medications free for under 18's and pensioners like in England? While wear eon the point, do you have pensions from the state? If you don't, how do old people...live? Do they get free medical care? And also, when you have a baby, do you have to pay for it? Like for the hospital stay and doctors and midwives? How much does it cost to have a baby on average? Help me please :)
  • The healthcare system in the United States is absolutely terrible for poor people, and the best in the world for the rich. That is why President Obama made it his mission to reform healthcare laws as much as possible. His overhaul would have been much more comprehensive, and would have included a "public option", had it not been for partisan opposition from the republicans. At any rate, before Obamacare, you either had health insurance through you're employer or you paid sky high premiums to get it privately (almost nobody does this). So after you get a job, benefits usually kick in after 90 days and that's when you choose you're plan and have the premium automatically deducted from your paycheck. Lose your job, lose your insurance. Obamacare, modeled after Mitt Romney's legislation for the state of Massachusetts when he was their governor, REQUIRES that you have health insurance. If you don't have it through your employer, you buy it privately or pay a fine. This will keep health care costs down to a considerable degree because currently hospitals have to make up lost money for the poor by charging people who do have insurance more. I have been uninsured most of my life and have always qualified for financial aid from hospitals, therefore I am part of the problem that creates higher health care costs for the insured. As for children...it sickens me to say that George Bush's first executive veto was to stop the S-CHIP program that Congress approved. This would have basically given healthcare to all children under the age of 18, regardless of whether or not their parents are insured. His veto was wildly unpopular, even among some conservatives. Car insurance is a completely different story. That's different state by state. In Virginia and Pennsylvania it is required to buy a vehicle, otherwise you have to pay a $500 "uninsured motorist" fee. In Pennsylvania in order to get your yearly registration renewed, you also must show proof of insurance. This is not the case in Virginia. So if somebody crashes into me, an it is completely third fault, but the have no insurance and I do, then my insurance company will pay for all of my damages. If neither of us have insurance, we can take each other to civil court, and a judge can order wage garnishments so that you get a small amount of the persons paycheck for a given amount of time. A normal, healthy baby costs about $15,000. I don't know if that's average across America, I just know that from life experience. Again, uninsured people will pay $0-$1000, insured people's insurance companies pay around $20,000-$25,000. If someone is uninsured and the baby is not healthy, or the mother requires a few weeks stay or something like that, then I would expect the hospital to bill you anyway. They are likely to give you a 20-25% discount for being uninsured. So a $100,000 bill for a baby's surgery is now only $80,000 an they will fight for that $80,000. Many very poor family's either file bankruptcy or deal with severe wage garnishments until they die. Now on to old people. Medicare is for all people over the age of 65. I am 23, and every paycheck of mine I have about 2% taken out for Medicare. In theory, this is a savings plan for myself, meaning that after 45 years of work, I will begging to get my own money I paid into Medicare back. However, with an agin population an increasing healthcare costs, there is expected to be no Medicare by 2020. Obama is fighting to the death to revive and strengthen Medicare to make is more sustainable. Paul Ryan, the republican vice-presidential candidate, has proposed a plan to completely kill Medicare and replace it with a voucher program. To be honest, I feel confident you will get other answers that talk very differently about Medicare and te voucher program that Ryan proposed. Healthcare has become a hyper-partisan issue in the US. You have liberals like me who think the system is broken and cheer on Obama for his efforts to reform it, an on the other side you have rich republicans who don't want to pay more in taxes and who have no idea why so many Americans complain about the healthcare system. Why should they? They can afford the best care possible regardless! If we poor people want the operation, we should get off our lazy asses and work hard and save money to be able to afford it. That's the thinking. I am a HUGE fan of not just the British healthcare system but of the Western European style of welfare state that is simply nonexistent in the US. Hope this helps.


What is healthcare management?



healthcare?


  • i have some questions 1) is universal health care feasible in the U.S.? 2) what are the obstacles in achieving universal health care in the U.S.? 3) what is the main obstacle to achieving health care in CT?
  • 1) Yes, if everyone contributes 2) Who will ultimately bare the cost and how much 3) The insurance companies Think about this...How do insurance companies make a profit? If insurance companies take in monthly payments from clients and in turn use this money to pay healthcare providers, would they make higher profits by denying care to clients for healthcare services they (the insurance companies) feel is unnecessary. This is one very large reason why we have a health care crisis in this country. Check out these links I found for you below. Good luck!


healthcare?


  • can i ask about the american healthcare system for my culture project. 1) do you have free universal healthcare, if not how much is it for an individual. 2)what is the most you would pay for a prescription. 3)what is the average life expectancy. 4)are you happy with the healthcare system. 5)what would you change about it. 6)are you afraid universal healthcare would bring socilism. thank you.
  • 1) No. Insurance may be offered through occupation, or you can get a private provider. 2)Depends on how badly I needed it. 3)78. 75 for men, 81 for women. From wiki 4)It has pros and cons. I'd like to see some reform. 5)I'd like to see more employers offer insurance, and private insurance be more affordable. I'd also like to see caps on the cost of healthcare. 6)Somewhat. If it stopped at universal healthcare, I would be okay with that. I'm afraid it may open a door allowing more socialist ideals to enter.


American healthcare?????


  • Ok, to start - i'm British. 1 - Do you really have to pay for your health treatment? I saw this thing on BBC Two which said you have to be insured, or you have to pay when you go to the hospital! I didn't believe it at first, but the show seemed to be truthful. Because i'm used to the British version where a little bit of our taxes go to state run hospitals in the Nhs, or National Health Service. 2 - Which led me to thinking, if, say, you get hit by a car, but don't have any insurance, does the ambulance come along, see you've got no insurance, so just drives off?? 3 - Finally, who runs and owns the ambulance service? Thanks And best wishes from the UK!
  • Americas healthcare situation is awful. Go watch Michael Moores movie, "Sicko" . Then you will see what we are up against here. Not everyone can afford health insurance, some people (like me) fall in the middle somewhere: you make too much to get help from the state, but not enough to keep up with the medical bills. It is a sad situation here. When I learned that Canada, British Columbia, Cuba and so many others have free health care, I almost thought it was some kind of a joke. Many many children here in the states do not get the care they need, and the way things are going (gas prices, housing prices) it is going to get much worse. Here in our nation, the rich get richer, the poor get poorer. I used to be what you would call middle class. I am not even close anymore. I am seriously considering moving to Canada, no kidding. Now we know why Canadians rarely relocate to the states. Ambulances here can be owned by the hospitals, or by private companies. Either way, they are very expensive. And yes, if you need emergency treatment, you will get it, but only until you are stable, then you get the boot if you arent insured or can pay out of pocket. Even if you do have insurance, they will do everything they can to get you out sooner, whether you are physically ready or not. We recently had a hospital get into trouble because they were dumping people off in slum areas when they couldnt afford to pay for their medical treatment. They dumped one homeless woman off in her hospital gown and she was sickly and disoriented. Complete strangers came to her aid. Count your blessings that your government actually cares about your people and not money.


Healthcare.is this right?


  • I don't have health insurance.when I checked online it's really expensive.thats why I'm thinking if I'll just Stay without insurance since I have savings and cash on tha bank..but I don't know if this right.avnd I'm looking for a job right now..so pls advise me.i just arrived 2009 in the united states so unlike in our country most of then people don't have health insurance.as long u have cash on the bank you're gonna be one but here really I don't know..pls your advise is really iimpt.thanks in advance!
  • Hello and welcome to the US! Our healthcare system, while great in some ways, can be very confusing and complicated, not to mention very expensive. So, take note of the following before deciding for or against health insurance. (1) As you probably already know, there is no "universal" health coverage. Healthcare in the US is a money making business, not a basic right of all citizens. I'm not saying I agree with this, I'm simply stating the way it is! While there are programs at the state level (called Medicaid) and federal level (called Medicare) which cover very specific populations (Medicaid covers children and pregnant women from low income families, Medicare is for those over age 65 who have paid into the system over their lifetimes or who have very specific health conditions) (2) There is a federal law which guarantees care to all who present to the Emergency Department of a hospital. However, there is no stipulation that this care is free - you will receive a very large bill for services! (3) Medical expenses are one of the top reasons that people in this country end up having to declare bankruptcy - because care is VERY expensive. While it is always a good idea to have some savings in the bank, most people do not have that kind of money. A "routine" hospitalization for something "simple" like appendicitis (requiring surgery), can easily cost over $10,000. Hospitalizations for complex problems (a stroke, a heart attack, or being hit by a truck), can easily cost over $100,000. Yes, it REALLY IS that expensive and yes, you REALLY ARE expected to pay these bills. You may want to consider a compromise - consider shopping around for a "high deductible-low premium health insurance plan - these are also known as "catastrophic" health care coverage. This type of health care insurance does NOT pay for doctors visits, routine care, physicals, prescription medications, or preventative care. It will, however, help pay if something "catastrophic" happens - like getting hit by a truck. These types of health care insurance plans are a little less expensive because chances are, you will never need to use them. There are literally hundreds of insurance companies in the US, and every company offers a different plan - so research is required here. Try major companies like Blue Cross/Blue shield. Many have websites that will explain the coverage in detail, so you know what you are getting - many also have phone numbers so you can call and speak with someone who may be able to help explain the more complicated aspects of healthcare insurance to you. There are also many websites that can explain the basics of how healthcare insurance plans work, like www.insurance.com Many people in this country have NO health care insurance - either because they choose to take the risk of "going without" or because they simply cannot afford it. I hope that you will perhaps find employment that includes health insurance as a benefit - but this is becoming ever more rare in our tough economic times. Hope this helps - good luck to you.
