Based on your family experience, what should we do to improve health care in America?
In my opinion, the most prohibitive aspect of American health care is the cost. From services to prescriptions, it's no wonder that the average American struggles to find affordable insurance. If we could lower the financial aspects of health care, more people would have easy access to it.
The cost of things is way out of proportion. We are lucky enough to have good insurance right now and even with that, after a surgery or ailment, we are left with 20% which can still be thousands of dollars. My husband had a partial knee replacement and the hospital bill alone was over $30,000.
How can people without insurance even hope to take care of their health. Insurance rates are sky high. Our insurance premium is about $1400 a month and thankfully is covered by my husband's disability insurance but if not - no way could we afford it.
It isn't enough to demand, or legislate the people have insurance, the cost of premiums reflect industry costs. The costs of hospital stays, doctor visits, prescriptions, etc. has got to drop down to be in line with our incomes.
What's the answer? I wish I knew.
