Universal Healthcare



hi my name is Cecilia and today I will be talking about universal health care universal health care is a system that provides health care and financial protection to our residents that means the quality healthcare is provided to all citizens regardless of their ability to pay these services would include vaccines medication mental health treatment and prenatal care to name a few by having all citizens covered some of the benefits would include reduce death rates extend the life span and slow down the spread of disease and this means citizens would stay healthy without hurting their wallet our current health care system relies mostly of coverage through an employer this coverage is limited and involves the deduction from each paycheck as well as a copay and coinsurance but have you ever thought what would happen if you will lose your job if your current coverage is through an employer and you happen to lose your job at that point you would fall under the uncovered population according to the United States Census Bureau published on September 23rd 2018 in 2017 there were twenty-eight point five million uninsured citizens one of the main reasons for not having health care coverage is the cost the percentage of uninsured children under age 19 was 5.4 percent and Hispanics had the highest uninsured rate at an alarming 16.1% according to the American Journal of public health it was found that nearly 45,000 Americans die each year as a direct result of being uninsured Canada is an example of a country who implements universal health care and according to a report posted on the balance calm Canada has the high survival rate of cancer and low hospital admission rates for asthma and diabetes studies show that preventive care reduces the need for expensive emergency room usage by having universal healthcare we would be saving many lives as well as improving public health overall thank you
