{UAH} U.S. Health Care Ranked Worst in the Developed World



Americans fell into the trap of failing to get a good medical system due to only one mistake, they became greedy. You see way back before world war, every American fell sick and took himself to a doctor, got treated and he/she paid for the treatment, end of story. However after world war, a suggestion was brought that employers help to pay for the treatment of their employees. The employers agreed out of a good heart to do so. Smart Americans at that time started to loot the system, by filling wrong claims to get the money out of the employers. Since that time, treating Americans has been a battle and you have to watch whether you are among the losers or those that do not lose. Someone from the system will eat and someone will be a victim, whether it is the doctors, or the insurance company, the pharmaceuticals, or the patients, someone in the American system must eat or lose, for treating Americans is built solely on eating. I was reading the replacement bill being discussed today, and I was surprised that the insurance companies covering the Republican senators were remaining covered in the replacement bill. You see many out there argue about these policies without reading the details in them. That small detail was sweet for me to read, for it shows that Americans will never write a bill based on good coverage


What is so tough about repealing and replacing the ObamaCare act today, is that when Obama wrote that bill, he actually pumped so much money to treat opioids over dose. States stood up to eat that money as many blacks are getting dead. Because these funds were being thrown at every state, over dose deaths expanded out of black communities into white communities, Obama kept the money flowing. As you read this writing, opioids over dose has crossed the line of killing only blacks to become a single killing epidemic nationwide. Now when the Republicans look at these deaths, they want to clear the mistake Obama did, so that they pull this money that failed to become a solution, but a disaster creator, the states themselves, have built such a number of addicts within themselves to a point that if you pull that money, they all are going to get a disaster. So the problem Obama built of making people addicts and dying, a problem states agreed to become a private killing machine that is not talked about, is raising its head today, and no one knows how to get over it. The more money you pump into states to fight it the more addiction you will get, what Obama should have done was to stop the money flow before we reached where we are, at this point of time, it is going to be very interesting on how society digs its self out of the grave mistakes made by a very terrible president. Again, today Opioids over dose is killing more Americans than auto accidents, guns, HIV and Cancer combined, yet no one is talking about it. ObamaCare was a bad idea but not for the few points you know, it is due to the catastrophe it created in society.


Lastly don't you ever wonder why both parties plead for a plan that must cover the 20 million Americans? Who writes the plan that will cover the 300 plus remaining Americans? Or they simply do not matter  !!!!!!

U.S. Health Care Ranked Worst in the Developed World

The U.S. health care system has been subject to heated debate over the past decade, but one thing that has remained consistent is the level of performance, which has been ranked as the worst among industrialized nations for the fifth time, according to the 2014 Commonwealth Fund survey2014. The U.K. ranked best with Switzerland following a close second.

The Commonwealth Fund report compares the U.S. with 10 other nations: France, Australia, Germany, Canada, Sweden, New Zealand, Norway, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the U.K. were all judged to be superior based on various factors. These include quality of care, access to doctors and equity throughout the country. Results of the study rely on data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the World Health Organization and interviews from physicians and patients.

Although the U.S. has the most expensive health care system in the world, the nation ranks lowest in terms of "efficiency, equity and outcomes," according to the report. One of the most piercing revelations is that the high rate of expenditure for insurance is not commensurate to the satisfaction of patients or quality of service. High out-of-pocket costs and gaps in coverage "undermine efforts in the U.S. to improve care coordination," the report summarized.

A striking take-home from the report was a need for equity throughout the nation. "Disparities in access to services signal the need to expand insurance to cover the uninsured and to ensure that all Americans have an accessible medical home," it said. A lack of universal health care was noted as the key difference between the U.S. and the other industrial nations.

Despite these shortcomings, positives noted include the breadth of reforms spearheaded by the Affordable Care Act, including new databases for transparent information and financial assistance for low-middle-income families in gaining coverage. "Those efforts will likely help clinicians deliver more effective and efficient care," the report concludes.
