when replying keep in mind that i belive that health care is a moral right
post # 1. I believe that access is health care is definitely a moral right. People should have access to health care whenever they need it without having to worry about the expenses the comes with it. People should have the chance to live free of suffering especially when the government has the means to provide for that. It is maddening to think that a lot of people like Rosalyn Schwartz have to choose between providing for their children or getting their diseases cured because they can’t do both. She was in constant pain and she had to endure it because she was not able to pay for medical services. The government should have the responsibility of taking care of its citizens, especially for diseases that the citizens did not do to themselves.
post # 2.
I used to work in a hospital and I would receive patients who were either homeless, not a U.S. citizen, or just couldn’t afford insurance. Our hospital still accepted them and we would provide care. I remember getting a patient who was not a citizen and was in need of help because he was diabetic. We basically kept him at the hospital and provided care until he was back in good condition. Upon being discharged, the hospital even provided medicine to last him for a month or two. I was a PCT (patient care technician) as the time so I didn’t understand every thing going on behind the scenes, but I’m pretty sure the hospital gave him the medications without charge. Knowing how important it is for diabetics to have their insulin, he probably would’ve been near death if he was denied care.
Our healthcare system is an imperfect system. The idea of Medicaid is admirable, stating that it provides health coverage for some low-income people (emphasis on some). But what about the people who are below poverty level? “People caught in that gap are those who are the poorest. They are not eligible for federal subsidies because they are too poor, and it was assumed they would be getting Medicaid” (Gerisch, 2018). There are around 4.8 million adults who don’t have access to health care and even if they tried, the costs of premiums, deductibles, and co-pays are incredibly out of their reach.
I do think accessibility to health care is a moral right. I could not justify denying a patient just because they could’t afford care. Similarly with last week’s discussion, these individuals didn’t ask to get sick. We have to consider that people from low-income status, are born into it. Their environment may contribute to their poor health and it’s not their fault — it’s just what they are surrounded with.
