Health Care Issue
There are several problems facing health care, including outburst of new infections, shortage of physicians, and discrimination in health care delivery among many others. However, the health care issue that affects most people in the society today is the rising cost of medical services. Citizens are constrained to pay a lot of money for health care services, especially when seeking treatment for serious conditions that involve surgical operations (Chernew, 2004). The Affordable Care Act tried to solve this problem by providing medical coverage to enable the low income families to have access to quality medical services that would otherwise not afford.
