There are several very important health care issues in the news and on the minds of many people these days.

Because the push for universal health care, the misuses of the current health care system have really come to light.

The health care issues that plague Americans need to be addressed with intelligent debate and understanding.

Our politicians should have to deal with health care the same way the rest of us do – PAY FOR IT Themselves.

One of the health care issues is the overuse of emergency room facilities by the poor, but it is not their fault.

To put it in simple terms, they respond to a situation in which they have no other recourse.

Since they have no such option, they take the much more costly route of going to the emergency room for the same service.

This puts a strain on emergency rooms and costs taxpayers much more than if the poor families were given adequate medical coverage in the first place.

Other health care issues involve preventative medicine.

Insurance companies do not all support the patient’s right to preventative medical screening procedures and treatments. This also makes health care more expensive in the long run.

Many health care issues revolve around the older population. There are so many elderly people who are given little or no help with their prescription medications.

Insurance companies make drug coverage available at a price that is so high that most seniors cannot afford it. This does little to resolve these health care issues.

Our politicians should have to deal with health care the same way the rest of us do – PAY FOR IT Themselves.

With all the health care issues that are in the public eye, there needs to be a better system of communication on these subjects.

People can have an impact on their health care system if they know where to have their ideas on health care issues heard. It is time for the government and other organizations to give them a voice.

If our so-called politicians had to deal with health care the same way the rest of us do – PAY FOR IT Themselves – then it is very possible that we would have a decent health care system that would be affordable.

The insurance companies are nothing but a racket. Every year as you get older, your premiums go up.

If you do not or cannot pay your premiums, then you have no coverage.

You are at the mercy of the insurance companies when you need and receive medical care.

They pay the claims they feel like and reject any that they do not want to pay. The patient is then left with potentially a large bill and if they can’t pay it, it will get sent to a collection agency and that person’s credit can be affected.
