NURS 6050 Discussion: Politics and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

RE: Discussion – Week 3

 

The cost-benefit analysis in terms of legislators being reelected affected efforts to repeal/replace the ACA (Obama Care) is a very interesting topic in healthcare. The impact can either help or hurt some of us. The goal for the legislator is to be reelected, so the decision must be supported throughout society. From my point of view, making ACA affordable, having access to healthcare, and making sure those without insurance are insured. Repealing the ACA keeps health insurance which make it appealing for some of us, while on the other hand, replacing the ACA can make it unappealing. This far, ACA has been very effective, and affordable, so let’s just keep it. On the other hand, if the ACA was replaced, many Americans would pay millions for prescription drugs, like medications that could save lives. According to the NCBI, the public debate focuses not on such important and difficult questions as how to discount future benefits or how to estimate cancer rates but on whether it is proper (or, as some contend, sinful) to “put a price tag on human life (National Research Council (US) Steering Committee on Valuing Health Risks et al., 1990).

The decisions by legislative leaders could affect low-income families currently benefiting from Medicaid expansion would be at grave risk of financial catastrophe and more likely to take out debt in the event of a health emergency if they were to lose their coverage (Cusick Director et al., 2021). Legislatives invests nearly $1 trillion over the 2010–2019 time period aimed at making coverage affordable, the Act more than offsets these expenditures through curbs on Medicare and Medicaid spending, new taxes on high-cost plans, and tax shelters used most heavily by affluent families (Rosenbaum, 2011). Replacing the ACA with (the American Health Care Act – AHCA) can cause significant changes like age of the client, cost, and the lack of coverage. The decision is normally made by voters that have the most votes. The end goal is protecting families and their health.

RE: Discussion – Week 3

 I enjoyed reading your informative discussion board post on the importance and benefits of the Affordable Care Act. Without this bill passed by President Obama, vulnerable populations, the Elderly and young population, cannot receive healthcare services. The affordable care act is essential as it reduces the insurance premium coverage. In turn, patients can pay for doctor’s visits and deliver their medication. Replacing and repealing ACA will affect millions of Americans in a negative way who rely on this act to have their medical needs met. According to

Cusick “The ACA codified protection for people with pre-existing conditions and eliminated patient cost-sharing for high values preventive care (Cusick Director et al., 2021). With that in mind, ACA has helped millions of Americans to afford to pay for health services. Replacing the ACA will not be a good idea.

 

Great post!
