HealthCare Policy to the Legislator
HealthCare Policy to the Legislator
The2010’s Affordable Care Act has continued to transform the country’shealth reforms and insurance landscape. This is due to the well-woventapestry that the policy brings about. In the United States, majorityof Americans have received a better health care since the policy wasbrought into play. While the policy, according to Syrett (2007), hascontinued to stir a lot of noise in the political arena and thecongress, I am bringing to your attention as the legislator, the prosof the policy. In addition, I intend to convey recommended directionof the legislative action to be taken about this public policy thatwill contribute to the good of health care in the country.
Tobegin with, the past twenty years have seen the county deal withchronic diseases before this health care policy was created. Thepolicy has advanced the country’s dealings with advancedconditions, with high unacceptably rate of uninsured Americansrecorded way back before the policy. The past for years have seenmajority of the citizens’ access options to affordable healthinsurance (Levine, 2009). It should be noted that the policy hassince allow small businesses and individuals allowed by themarketplace to compare health care plans on the level platform.
Iam proposing under the law that you would consider my policy becausein the past, what had become a common scenario was that most of theinsurance companies could search for any error that would be seen asa technical mistake just to deny insurance services to the people.The policy today ensures that everyone is afforded health care. Thepolicy also proposes to eliminate lifetime limits to the insurancecoverage it will have on its people. Additionally, the relationbetween the government and the policy is healthy considering thegovernment values the need to a healthy nation (Levine, 2009). Itshould be noted that the policy have other essential benefits likehospital stays for its patients.
As the legislator, slight changes to the policy will ensure thereis equity is provision of affordable medicine, according to Syrett(2007). With affordable medicine comes the need to alter thelegislation that will oversee the consumers’ ability to appeal anycoverage claims or determinations to their insurer. This will alsoenable implementation of external review processes by the government.
Ialso recommend set of offices, which is under the law that willassist in supplying federal grants. The offices will help the healthconsumers set up or even expand and navigate private insurance healthsystems. Additionally, it is important to enact changes about otherprograms related to the policy for collection of data for everyproblematic condition.
Supportfrom the legislation will oversee drastic drop in the cost of healthcare, while at the same time will help improve the quality of health.Syrett (2007) noted that with these recommendations, all the plansafter legislative action will emphasize on covering specificpreventive services, for example colonoscopies and mammograms withouthaving the consumers beings deducted.
Finally,your support as the legislator will assist the establishment of thepolicy through the passing of bills that will help in slightlyaltering the policy to fit the needs of consumers as far ashealthcare is concerned. Additionally, with healthy relationship withthe government, the above recommendations will be approved smoothly.The government will also likely increase access to majority of theuninsured citizens, while extending coverage to the young adults.With good relationship with the government, Levine (2009) observedthat the state has an option of implementing the policy fully.
