Various reaction arise as far s health care reform is concern, but the real issue here is the cost that it might require to fund such reform. I guess we are all aware that U.S is under economic distress so the issue of large amount of money does matter to them. The health care costs that are indicated to be wasteful are behavioral, clinical, and procedural – what that means is that behavioral patterns could be addressed by someone other than a doctor, clinics order unnecessary tests, and health insurance companies might be padding their bills. The biggest cause of people needing an extra cash advance for medical care is overtesting – unnecessary procedures so the physician can cover himself legally, or just gouge patients for cash. Doctors padding bills – no wonderhealth care costs drive people to needing a personal loan for a simple check up.
