Health Care Law

The coursework "Health Care Law" overviews the Legal “System of Health Care Statutory Laws” and presents the analysis which ‘law’ should be ‘modified’ or ‘repealed’. All states in the US regulate medical practitioners in their states, design social and health reforms in line with federal and its own laws, as well as ensuring patient privacy laws. In March 2010, US President signed a reformed Healthcare bill known as the Affordable Care Act, ACA, which aims to increase the number of people legible for medical insurance, particularly lower and middle-income earners. Although the new act will cost a lot, this will be spread over the next few years and it will be beneficial to all in the long run.
The act, however, has caused mixed feelings among many people. Many of these would like to see some of the statutes in the bill repealed, especially if they are to pass the bill as law in their states. As many as 18 states have not yet fully voted for the bill to be law in their states. Many states are of the opinion that the act should take into consideration the milestones that individual states have taken in reforming state health care services. One of the biggest issues opposed by most of these states, including the state of Florida, is the requirement that every person is required to purchase health insurance by 2014, failure to which they will have harsh penalties imposed on them. Florida is one of the states that is opposing the Affordable Care Act, rather than seeking to repeal some rules in the act.
