Healthcare will only improve if the economy is fixed

You likely get it from your employer or some kind of public program if you are American, and you have health insurance. Or perhaps both, if your employer is the government.
In the US, hardly anybody receives their medical insurance. Thanks to our insane patchwork system, we can’t afford to buy it and insurers cannot afford to sell it. Consequently, the gaps are broken and millions stay uninsured.
Even many who are insured may not be, as they are virtually uncovered by exorbitant deductibles. It’s both a human problem and a financial one because we don’t want anyone to suffer and economic one because social expenses are caused by pain.
Healthcare isn’t our only problem but it’s a big one.
Whole FOODS Market, an Amazon unit (AMZN), announced last week that approximately 1,900 part-time employees would receive medical advantages. These 1,900 employees and their families do not represent a random population sample. Some people likely did a comparatively low-paid part-time job because they required health advantages desperately.
The other aspect is that these medicines are so costly. Again, this is an issue we choose to face in the United States. It doesn’t exist in other nations, at least not as heavily.
Are individuals falling like flies in Japan, Canada, and the UK? No, not so. They are as healthy as Americans by most of any statistics you can find, even though they spend far less on their health.
The health industry (particularly pharmaceuticals) and many American healthcare providers are highly profitable, leaving many people ill, uninsured or under-insured. In turn, these sick Americans contribute less to economic growth.
This can be solved in many respects. One effort, clearly not as well functioning as imagined, was made by the Accessible Care Act. Some would like to change the ACA to remedy its weaknesses. Some want a universal program called “Medicare for All.” Others would like to begin over.
