Many senior citizens worry about the effect that the health care reform may have on them
Seniors use the health care system more than younger people and those living on fixed incomes may have little ability in their budgets to help if their health costs rise.
Despite the widespread confusion of the Affordable Care Act seniors’ choices have not changed much within medicare. Senior good health is one of the most important assets in any health care system, if the overall health of a nation’s seniors is poor then the costs are much higher.
This topic does not often show up on the list of health care problems: cost, access, waste, legalities, regulation, and the confusion in the administration of providers, payers, and patients.
The health care problem topics seem to be debated daily, but the individual’s responsibilities seem to be politically incorrect. The senior citizen’s health care reform needs to start with the evaluation of the nation’s social and personal requirements of its citizens.
The responsibility of individuals’ health through life becomes society’s financial obligation.
What if our healthcare system kept us healthy?
