The Ultimate Health Care

The Ultimate Health Care

The ultimate in health care is envisioned like this:

Any body who is sick or feels that there is something wrong with his body can go to a nearby clinic. These clinics are staffed daily with more than one physician and no appointments are required. Health care cards and id’s are checked and the person is seen by the physician on duty. Minor treatments are done there and referrals to specialists and/or private laboratories are made when necessary. Ambulances are contacted when needed. All is done free of charge.

Health records are made on paper by the physician and also recorded to a centralized computer system. All physicians have access to the health care records of all members.This includes all drugs, surgeries, diseases, etc. of the member.

Prescriptions are written when needed  and the person brings this to the pharmacy store which is then filled up. The government health care system, most probably the State Insurance System, is billed 80% and 20% of the charge is paid by the patient, or Blue Cross or any opted private insurance company.


Whenever the total costs paid by  the State Insurance are over that which is collected from the members, this portion is billed to the Federal Government which then transfers funds to the State Insurance. The Federal Government Health care should have allocated some billions of dollars to each State before the pilot version was initiated, anyway. It will be a matter of a centralized accounting system between the Federal Government and the States. The whole system will be much dependent of this centralized computer system as regards member information and health data. This system is dedicated and not even the intelligence community can access this info.

As regards member privacy? Oh come off it—if you are sick, why would you be concerned about your privacy?

By the way, after the pilot version is over, Federal government takes over control and regulation of the system. Why? To the Federal Government is dumped the responsibility for the Health care of the people, and pays for the expenses as required. The State becomes the operating arm of the Federal Government, as is supposed to be.

Much, much money is to come from the Federal Government on the initial introduction of the pilot version. There is expected be be a deluge of people going to the clinics, especially of those who have delayed going to see a doctor due to high expenses. The premiums as dictated by the government according to the standardized schedule of fees laid down by executive orders will be drastically reduced and people will take advantage of this. Finally, the lower income people will be able to see a doctor with gusto.

It is also expected that there will be opposition outcries from the physicians, the private insurance companies, and of course, the Democrats, who will again resound their motto—–thet there will be millions of Americans who will die because of this new health care act.

The private insurance companies will act as the option for extra and complete health care for the members. People may also opt to get private health care insurance if they can afford it, but the ease and convenience of the Federal-State health care system would be the better choice for the rest of the people.

I should add that the system I proposed here IS A PUBLIC HEALTH CARE SYSTEM. For how else can the Federal Government be in complete control of the system if there are private entities involved in having a piece of the action.

Is this a subsidized, socialized medicine? Close to it, but no cigar.

It will be a subsidized system for those who cannot afford it. Not a subsidized system for those who can still partially afford it. The requirement  to be a member is simple—must be a qualified citizen or permanent immigrant status, must have contributed to the system for a certain length of time, or for a minimum amount, must be employed or must have reasonable causes to be unemployed, must be residing in the state covering his insurance, and etc.

How are the schedule of fees set?—by a discussion with the College of Physicians, the pharmacists, the specialists and so forth. There must be an official survey completed. But I must also mention the private hospitals. Or are there any hospitals in the US which is not a private hospital? Their fees may not follow the schedule as laid down by the government, but if the patient is registered to the State Insurance and opts to be billed as such, the hospital should follow the schedule of fees. NOTE: the hospital may be under litigation should it be proven to have a double standard against the denigrated treatment of state insurance patients.

Private hospitals are not allowed in Canada, only private doctors
