  • The Clinton Health Plan - 1,687 words
    The Clinton Health Plan The health care situation in the United States is in dire need of a change. The United States spends more money on health care per individual than any other nation in the world (14%of its GNP in 1991), and that amount is quickly rising. Virtually everyone, from doctors to politicians, recognize the unwieldy situation of health care in America, and realize that something must be done. In order to attempt to correct the failures of the current health care situation, one must understand the problems that led to the deterioration of the health care system. Perhaps the main problem with health care today is that there are 37 million Americans without insurance, and another ...

    ... fit. The Health Security plan creates incentives for health care providers to compete on the basis of quality, service and price. It unleashes the power of the market and puts American consumers in the driver's seat. Consumers choose from whom and how they get their care. The plan empowers each state to set up one or more health alliances that contract with health plans and bargain on behalf of area consumers and employers. Health plans must meet national standards for coverage, quality, and service set by the National Health Board. But each state tailors its approach to local needs and conditions. The Health Security plan frees the health care system of much of the paperwork and regulat ...

  • George W Bush - 751 words
    George W. Bush In this brief essay about Governor Bush, I will be talking about my standings on regarding his issues. I think Bush is making a great decision to reduce or completely stop abortion. Abortion is just like taking someone else's life. It is just as if someone was to go outside and shoot someone and go on with his or her life like nothing happened. In a way it is basically murder. What I dont get is why he won't force litmus paper test yet he wants to reduce the rate of abortions. I think he has the right idea in mind, but is just a little confused with what he wants to accomplish when he becomes president. Governor Bush believes that the best way to protect the innocent is to ful ...

  • Problems With Hmos - 1,399 words
    Problems With Hmo's Many employees must designate a health plan through their employer. These days, as HMOs (health maintenance organizations) and managed care plans continue to proliferate, that means a choice between bad and worse. As employees line up in the lunch-room for a process called open enrollment, they may be surprised to learn that managed care rates have gone up again. The mirage that managed care is cheaper care is finally fading. And, for the first time in years, employees may also have the promise of free choice in medicine in the form of a new method of financing health care. Consumers are already aware of horror stories involving HMOs, but cheap rates persuaded many that ...

It is widely accepted that the best training and education is available in the United States in the field of medicine. Despite the fact that over $750 billion is spent on health care in the United States, more than 30 million Americans have no medical coverage and over 100 million are reportedly underinsured according to Nancy Watzman, of the Washington Monthly. We spend 14 percent of our Gross National Product (GNP) on health care each year, while our neighbors to the north, the Canadians, spend only nine percent of their GNP on ...

Some investigators consider it a sign of brain damage when pot smokers show the so-called "antimotivational syndrome"-when they "drop out", and opt the hippie viewpoint that so disturbed the older generation in the 1960's. Some studies have said that people using marijuana on a regular basis take the chance of having abnormal offspring or developing forms of cancer. It does seem likely that if a person smoked pot as heavily and for as many years as the usual tobacco smoker he would run the same risk for cancer and would perhaps get it soon ...

  • The Problems With Hmos - 1,459 words
    The Problems With Hmos Sarah Cay Bradley English 320 May 20, 1999 The Problems With HMOs It was no surprise when I interviewed my English class about HMOs, that out of 13 students, seven currently having HMO coverage, 77% felt HMO healthcare inferior to traditional insurance. This group closely represents the U.S. population, as HMOs have become practically synonymous with health care and the idea that Americans are no longer receiving the quality care they received from unmanaged plans. Managed care plans have succeeded in dramatically cutting the rate at which medical spending in the United States has been growing. Does it matter that 100 years after Lincoln freed the slaves that we have f ...

The system of managed care began in the United States in the early 1900s, in an effort to provide coordinated health care in a cost-effective way(Amer. Assoc. of Retired Persons). Until recently, managed care has emerged from the shadows to become the dominant form of health insurance and delivery, succeeding the older fee-for-service program (Zelman and Berenson 2). Today, about 160 million Americans are enrolled in some kind of managed care plan. Managed care has made health care more affordable andmore accessible for Americans. But sometimes cost cutting can lead to lower standards (Clinton ...
