Health Care Crisis gone Global

Jun 20th 2012 at 8:35 AM

David Singer a New York Economist suggest in 2030 health care cost will rise up to 25%. Employers are challenged with maintaining employee benefit. Co-pays have increased rendering employees and their families helpless.  Our ageing population is living longer and the cost to care for many of their chronic illness is of great concern to the health care industry. It is important in my opinion to be informed, keep up with the resolutions proposed to deal with our health care crisis.

Our health care crisis means you and me. It will affect the manner in which health care is delivered and who will receive treatment.  What do you thing about gobal discussions related to rationing health care services? What would happen to you or your love ones if the health care industry turned you away because they could not afford to care for you or you were unable to pay? What decision would you make?  Health care is of major concern on a local, state and federal level.  It on the table of our leaders.  Not an easy issue to handle yet it must be discussed.  What would you say if you were at the table? What plan would you present?

Health care is the responsibility of each of us and it is worth healthy discussions.  Reimbursements for hospitals, home health, Pharmacies just to name a few are hit hard and challenged with maintaining an open door.  While we wonder around in denial others are working diligent to ensure that our country has a plan.

Health care is the responsibility of us all. What will you do?

Hi Carol - great article on health care - fortunately we have a pretty good system here in Australia compared to the USA - but still it is a long way from perfect. TB&L for you as well.

Amy Shelton Healthcare is of great concern today. Many are denied coverage, especially with pre-existing conditions, or there rates are higher. Pharmaceuticals are helping with generic drug programs. More are turnig to discounted programs, saving up to 80%.
