Healthcare was always a serious issue all over the world, but now more than ever, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic, when everything became more and more expensive. But if you’re an American citizen, then you’re probably aware of the fact that medical insurance has skyrocketed in price. According to various recent studies, a lot of poor Americans die because they don’t have health insurance.
Even after the Affordable Care Act, millions of low-income Americans will remain without health insurance because governors, primarily Republicans, have declined to extend Medicaid, a program that offers health insurance for low-income Americans. The United States is the only developed nation that cannot ensure health care for its citizens.
The majority of low-income individuals, as well as retirees who can’t pay for their prescription medications or, if necessary, a surgical intervention, are the most impacted by this healthcare issue.
