American Health Care Are We an Example

? An amazing American legislative victory over this March 2010 weekend has earned a circle on every person's calendar. Although it's not officially law yet, an enormous step towards universal health care has been achieved. The House has officially passed the Health Care Reform. This piece of social legislation has been a newsworthy debate by every individual who has held title of American President since 1960 when the Great Society saw the passing of Medicare and Medicaid. Universal health care coverage is the goal. The house voted 219 - 212 in favour of an overhaul of the health care system being signed into law. The Democrats passed this bill without one single Republican vote.

The second bill that passed by the House on March 21 will be the bill to make adjustments to the current legislation such as lowering the taxes on high-value insurance plans and removing kickbacks like budget reconciliations. However, President Obama made a promise to continue with the consistency of some existing Federal laws of the Hyde Agreement that has been in place since 1976.

The goal of this new bill is to make the practice of medicine and health care providers more efficient. They would be rewarded on how well they treat patients instead of the current method of how much care they provide to individual patients. The bill would also make available health coverage to approximately 32 million legal Americans, increasing the number to 95% coverage from the current 83%.

Even in Canada where Medicare has existed in one form or another since 1968, you can fall victim to debt resulting in bad credit due to medical bills from a rejected insurance claim, for items not covered by Medicare. If you are in such a predicament, a private loan could assist with the consolidation of debt as well as to help rebuild bad credit as these financial institutions understand such situations and specialize in bad credit loans.

Albeit in the United States or in Canada, like any newly implemented law, it will take time to see positive results. During the first few years, most people will notice only minor changes. If you fall into the category of denied insurance or denied insurance claims due to pre-existing conditions, the good news is that the immediate changes are severe and are directed at those insurance company's policies. The practice of denying coverage to children with pre-existing conditions and dependent children under the age of 26 who cannot otherwise get healthcare, will allow them to remain covered under their parent's policies. As well, adults with pre-existing conditions will be allowed to buy coverage with high-risk companies, an option that is not available now.

Canada s Health Care System Getting Facelift
A recent call to overhaul Canada's health care system could soon see changes in the overall system. The Canadian Medical Association, Canada's largest group of doctors, have created a new framework that is aimed at improved quality of care with increased efficiency as well as being more focused around patients. They are also suggesting numerous system changes for electronic health care technology, as well as shorter wait times and better access to prescription drugs. The current Canada Health...

Do I Look Fat in This Debt
? For those of you who have not yet seen this, a recent German BMC Public Health study shows obesity and debt are strongly linked together. The study suggests that people who are heavily in debt are twice as likely to be more overweight than the general population and are 2.5 times as likely to be obese. The link between the two combines the psychological and social stress of being heavily in debt. People in these overly indebted situations tend to turn to comfort food and often become less...

Canadians are Working More
Statistics Canada has released its January 2010 report of payroll employees. It has found that the total hours of a payroll employee increased in January by 0.3%, while non-farm payroll employment remained the same. The timely increase was mostly in transportation and warehousing, health care, construction, mining, quarrying, oil and gas extraction sector and finance. The finance sector continues to grow, increasing by 15,700 or 2.3% since August 2009 while oil and gas extraction has turned...

According to the White House 683 000 US Jobs Created in the First Quarter
There's always speculation when it comes to actual public tallies, but according to the White House, the $787 billion stimulus package has created just under 683,000 jobs in the first quarter of 2010. Based on 179,000 reports filed by individual states, these 682,799 jobs were added primarily in the areas of road construction, police officers and teachers as the stimulus money was put directly towards these occupations. These numbers do not reflect jobs that were created indirectly through...

Another Economic Decline Seen in the American Job Market
The American labour market is still seeing a climb in unemployment rates as an additional 19,000 have caused the rates to increase twice in the last few weeks. The Labor Department has noted the increase saying that even though there may be signs of higher company profits, it's still not enough to initiate additional company hiring. Pierre Ellis, an economist at Decision Economics, wrote, The very unyielding flow of layoffs now clearly evident, discourages any thought that employers are more...

The Cost of Care Giving
Care giving to an aged loved one is something many of us will have to deal with at some point before our own retirement. A recent study has shown that many Canadian baby boomers are nearing retirement and are finding themselves in a position of taking care of an aged parent or relative and are doing so while still taking care of their own children which is having a detrimental financial impact. Statistics Canada confirms that 18.4 per cent of Canadians provide some level of unpaid care giving...

GM Canada Sued for Benefit Scale Back
An Ontario man has filed a potential class-action lawsuit against GM Canada for rolling back their benefits. This lawsuit against the automaker has been made on behalf of himself and 3,500 additional retired white-collar employees of the company. Just as GM Canada had reconstructed itself from the impact of the recession, this lawsuit has been filed with claims the company violated its contractual obligations to the retired workers by cutting their benefits with their approval. During GM...

Realistic Retirement
A recent RBC poll through Ipsos Reid concluded that most Canadians believe they will have enough money in their retirement years to cover necessities, while only one-forth of Canadians think they'll be living their dream golden years. Having enough money is a concern for 49% of people who have yet to retire as they feel they will not be able to provide anything above necessities. With a recent study of how so many retirees are doing so in the red, this is a legitimate concern for most people....

One Million Foreclosed Homes Forecast for 2010
According to RealtyTrac Inc., more than 900,000 American homes were repossessed in 2009 due to foreclosures. So far in 2010, there have already been almost 528,000 homes taken over this year from homeowners who have fallen behind on their payments. If the first half of the year is any indication of what's to come, RealtyTrac predicts that number to increase to about one million repossessed American homes by the end of 2010. In comparison to any normal year, that number is around 100,000, so a...

Do You Really Need It
? It can be difficult to save money. It's even more difficult when we spend our hard earned cash on items that we think will be either good products or somehow good for us. Everyday consumers are inundated with new products and services that they most certainly could live without. Everything from satellite television and frequent buyer cards to movie theater snacks are what many of us would refer to as rip-offs. As consumers we do have to choice to buy or not to buy; but when you're at the...
