Description:

While we lack polls specifically, of the physician community, and among the population at large, there is a lack of understanding of the ramifications of different healthcare reforms. “Americans without health insurance receive suboptimal health care. They are less likely to have a usual source of health care, less likely to fill prescriptions, and more likely to postpone or go without care due to cost. In addition, those who are uninsured are less likely to have preventative screening tests for cancer, including mammograms, pap smears, and colonoscopies.” “If Medicare-for-all were enacted, it would pay the medical expenses of all Americans. Private health insurance provided by employers or individuals, Medicaid, or for veterans would cease to exist. The number of uninsured Americans would decrease to a bare minimum. Once all Americans have access to ongoing medical care, we could expect that most health disparities could be corrected.” “Many report that implementing a Medicare-for-all nonprofit system would significantly reduce administrative costs, profits, and overhead and would lead to a reduction in US health care costs. “socialized medicine works well in England and State the educational need(s) that you determined contribute to the practice gaps identified above. Explain whether these needs are caused by knowledge, competence, or performance gaps.
