He is one of 70 million Americans who depends on this program. Medicaid was passed in the mid-1960s after decades of fights over the role of government in medical care. FDR and Truman fought for healthcare, but Johnson wound up passing this landmark legislation. Around this same time, developed nations around the world passed universal health programs. The US got Medicaid.

The more I learn, the more grateful I am to live in Norway. My brothers son, born prematurely in January, had to stay 3 months in hospital. They paid nothing. I'm expecting twins later this year, I will pay nothing no matter if it ends up as a natural birth or a C-section. Happy to live somewhere all citizens have the same value, no matter how healthy or rich they are..

This may sound heartless, and indeed, in a way, it just might be. But, from a purely logical perspective, perhaps it doesn't make sense to preserve those who physical attributes are inherently flawed? As the comedian Bill Burr said, "We're the only species who preserves the weak." I dunno, just saying, I can see some benefits from this. The biggest one being that each generation will have a bigger ratio of those with health problems then the one before it, as long as we keep doing what we're doing. Sooner or later it'll be unsustainable.

But Obamacare can not really be compared with universal health care.. Which is probably why it has failed.

Helen E I won't say, due to personal security reasons. It's a small area. That being said though, I'm sure that the majority of citizens do, indeed, believe that healthcare is a right. Between the Medicaid program-which takes up a larger chunk of the US revenue the the military-and the constant demonstrations and attempts to achieve a better system, the willingness is there. But, as this video pointed out, there're roadblocks.
Helen E (1 день назад)
I assumed you were since the majority of US citizens believe health care is not a human right, but rather a privileged only for those who can afford it. Where are you from?

Medi cal/Medicaid recovery program. Food is our medicine not the over the counter drugs or prescription drugs , those drugs are how they farm us. If you have medical cannabis in your state , grab the golden ring and run with it, growing your medicine is much cheaper than buying pharmaceutical drugs. Also look up medical benefits of ginger ,turmeric , cayenne, lemons, water melons and many other foods, cannabis has the most nutrition value of any plant, also treats the most sicknesses.

Norway here.. I find the attitudes in the US shocking.

Our health care system works hard to prevent childhood obesity. So every family of a obese child is offered (free) help. This has been a success since the growth of obese children has almost stopped in the last years. It will save our country loads of money in the years to come, since more of these children will be normal weight as adults, and will be able to work and contribute to the society. (Norway)

Medicaid is ok but then you have a harder time finding a doctor and medical office (with proper professional demeanor when it comes to delays and other issues like appointment booking). When I had private insurance through my parent and my job I had excellent physicians who employed the best medical secretaries but now on Medicaid despite me paying taxes since 15, there's a gross difference. I have to fight harder to find excellent specialists. The SYSTEM itself is broken.

kiwifruitkl (2 месяца назад)
People always debate about how to fund those expensive medical bills - the government or individual consumer. But people neglect to talk about how those bills get so darn expensive. I think hospitals should really operate like grocery stores. Like grocery stores, hospitals have to set a fixed price for each service. If the patient cannot afford it, then they will be denied healthcare from that specific hospital or seek a cheaper hospital. If the patient cannot afford the services even at the cheapest hospital, then they may receive treatment from Free Clinics, the medical version of food donation centers, operated by volunteer, trainee doctors (who accept any kind of payment, even food) and funded by the national government (those supplies don't come free). Of course, there will be a limit to who can receive treatment from the Free Clinics. Maybe only people who make below the Living Wage in a given state will be eligible for treatment by the Free Clinics. People with lifelong, debilitating, incurable illnesses will only be eligible until the age of 18, which will protect minors from suffering from the conditions; adults who age out of the system are on their own. Seriously, expecting society to support you for the rest of your life (because your freakin' condition costs tens of thousands of dollars to maintain) is unrealistic and expensive.

Rich class lives almost all the same in anywhere-- luxurious, lavish, showing off, etc. What decides a country advanced or not, is that minors or lower class can be benefited from welfare or public while lower classes consititue of the majority of public and labours.

My whole life I didn't like how people can get medicaid and cost taxpayers money. Now... I am in need of healthcare and going to do a specific test will cost me over a thousand dollars. I do not make nearly enough money to not be impacted by that large payment. I qualify for medicaid based on my yearly income. I feel so bad because I was opposed to us citizens pouring so much money into healthcare. Now I might have something called sleep apnea. Those who have it are 4x higher mortality and come with a host of side effects. One of them being high blood pressure. Well I have high blood pressure. I am hoping to qualify for medicaid because the cost of a sleep study, appointments, and a cpap/bipap machine can cost upwards of $3.5k.

Instead of cutting and pasting without attributing the quoted passage, you should go to the original study. Joy Lawn's statement does not cover the developed countries in the OECD. Those countries do far, far better at preventing infant mortality than the US does and they keep really good records. In fact, here's what the Joy Lawn study actually says: "Almost all of these deaths (99%) occur in low- and middle-income countries, and approximately half occur at home, often unnamed and uncounted." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3428888/ If you look at the map at the linked article you will see that the US, along with all of Europe, is classed as having "High-coverage vital registration systems" and surveys are NOT used in those countries to determine infant mortality. In other words, and these are my own words, the quote from the article in National Review that you pasted in is deceptive, intentionally so. The US is a rich, highly developed country. When compared with other countries, that are also rich and highly developed, the US looks bad on infant mortality. Trying to distract with a comparison to infant mortality rates in poor, third world countries is not helpful.
chloe gilbert (2 месяца назад)
BLAH BLAH BLAH.......The reasons why the often stated high mortality rates for USA are total bull crap are totally logical and believable. Underreporting and unreliability of infant-mortality data from other countries undermine any comparisons with the United States. In a 2008 study, Joy Lawn estimated that a full three-fourths of the world’s neonatal deaths are counted only through highly unreliable five-yearly retrospective household surveys, instead of being reported at the time by hospitals and health-care professionals, as in the United States. So, in other words, other countries gather statistics on a five year basis relying on peoples memories instead of reporting each individual death as it occurs as the US does. This alone voids your statistical argument.

Here's what Dr. Carroll wrote about infant mortality: "Many more babies die in the United States than you might think... This fact is hard for some to comprehend. Some try to argue that the disparity isn’t real. They assert that the United States counts very premature births as infants because we have better technology and work harder to save young lives. Therefore, our increased rate of infant death isn’t due to deficiencies, but differences in classification. These differences are not as common, nor as great, as many people think. Even when you exclude very premature births from analyses, the United States ranks pretty poorly. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/07/upshot/the-us-is-failing-in-infant-mortality-starting-at-one-month-old.html The CDC also issued a publication showing that differences in calculating the infant mortality rate did not change the fact that the US has a higher rate than many other developed countries. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr63/nvsr63_05.pdf In vitro fertilization has nothing to do with infant mortality. The truth, as Dr. Carroll writes, is hard to believe. But it's the truth.

It would be much cheaper...& healthier...to maintain good health, with ck ups and tending to basic health needs, like teeth, hearing and vision & making basic hygiene supplies available at a lower cost. A body, like a vehicle, requires good maintenance...which is cheaper than a major repair and makes a useful life, longer & more productive. Like so many things, however, the big corps make money off things that go wrong, not the healthy alternatives. The extra taxes paid into the system, by healthy folks working, rather than depleting the economy thru health-related problems, would more than offset the costs of regular ck-ups & maintenance.

This is something I worry about every day - I have a rare heart muscle disease, one that unfortunately enough, I was born with. The severity meant a /week/ after diagnosis I had a pacemaker. That device alone means a surgery every five to seven years. That expense is set in stone, along with my heart medication, the cardiologists (I have two) the appointments with those doctors (I have on average 4 doctor's apointments every year for my condition alone) and I've already had open heart surgery (nearly a quarter of a million dollars that month in the hospital cost my family; due to unforeseen complications) - And I'm one of the lucky ones; I have Medicade, in /Oklahoma/. (Go check the video, OK was at the bottom of that list) But my coverage is under review. The government might take it away from me soon. And I'm so scared since I can't work. I'm in my mid-twenties, still living with my parents, and I cannot maintain a livable income. My situation is one of the reasons medicade is what it is today, and they still want to take it from me.

The American health care system is broken,and it's only going to get, worse as our country ages. Health insurance companies in the States are for profit only, they could care less about insuring their patients until they are healthy or die with an incurable disease.We should of passed Universal Healthcare for every citizen many years ago. Why would these Republicans continue to advocate for state control when they know that's not working for their constituents in those states?? I'll tell u why, they carry water for the lobbyists and special interests like big Pharma. Education is free here, our healthcare needs to be as well

In Germany (I belive it's the case in most of western Europe) the governmental non-profit health insurance, old age pension, etc. services are devided strictly from others. There is a a private health care sector, you have to pay separately, from the amount, you monthly give away automatically with your wage, but these people (we used to have one too) were kept in hospitals much longer and were diagnosed wrong, simply because their health insurance was willing to pay for any useless therapy.

Why do so many idiot Americans believe that their CIA spreads propaganda against the US? The CIA world factbook points out that the US has third world rates of child mortality. The average American's life expectancy is only marginally above poverty-stricken Cuba's and America's life expectancy figures are plunging. The US government spends more per head of population on health care than any other country in the world. Americans are people who would by a car at more than double the market price, have it kill them and their children and yet still be convinced they got a good deal. Duh!

It's almost comforting to see someone else talk about the reality of having an autoimmune disease, and how ridiculously expensive it is. Not only that, how scary it can be. I don't think a lot of people realize what *kind* of medications we need to be on simply to stay alive, and how risky it can be either. Many of the medications are given through IV and some are even classified as chemotherapy drugs. To be infused it either requires either an office visit, or even a day at the hospital depending on your insurance. That costs money. The medication itself can easily cost over $100,000 depending on where you get infused. I'm not even kidding. I get infused every 6 weeks, so you can imagine why this would become a pain to get coverage for. I also have Crohn's Disease, Psoriatic Arthritis and a plethora of other medical issues. Luckily I'm on my parents insurance now, but I turn 26 next year. I'm scared about what may happen then and if I'd be able to get coverage for my medications and specialists. Politicians very well may have my life in there hands, and I'm not to confident in the way things have been going... Thank you, Matthew, for sharing your experiences and informing the public on what it's like to get coverage for these types of medications.

When you go in for a doctor's visit, doctors tend to order a ton of unnecessary tests and procedures to err on the side of caution, significantly increasing your medical bill - why? Because of malpractice suits and the fact that getting claims through to insurance companies is a complete mess. Insurance companies want you to spend as little as possible, so getting approval for certain treatments is extremely difficult. That and the overuse of the ED for non-threatening issues, uninsurance, and inability for consumers to pick/choose based on price - think about it, if you were in an emergency, would you take the time to consider costs when going to a hospital? That and the selection of hospitals is usually fairly slim - we can choose which store to shop at or where to eat, but when have you ever seen a ton of hospitals in one single location? In the end we have to get hospitals and insurance companies to become more transparent with their pricings, but is this going to happen anytime soon? Definitely not. For-profit is going to remain for-profit. Better start supporting your local safety net hospitals that provide treatment towards patients regardless of ability to pay than continue to go to those for profit hospitals whose sole purpose is to make investors happy.
