Money rules everything is one of the quotes that some companies stand by. There is evidence to suggest that money does change decisions, and lots of money does alter the future for these companies. However, companies try to incorporate decisions not only using money but also using customer feedback. Some of that customer feedback can ultimately aid in gaming more money. Companies’ goals are to try to make money to provide more for the customers and pay employees. In the healthcare system hospitals, doctors offices, and pharmacies all have to make money to pay employees and keep providing customers/ patient with excellent service. Some of these institutions are for-profit and some are nonprofit. These institutions still need to have some sort of cash flow in order to work. The biggest economic impact on these healthcare institutions are insurance companies. Insurance companies are the driving force of how these institutions get paid for the most part. However, with insurances there is a huge disparity on who has insurance and who can afford insurance. That is why universal healthcare is at the forefront of all economic conversations specifically here in the United States of America. Universal healthcare can allow all citizens of the US to be seen by a doctor and thus maintaining or bettering their health. Nevertheless, universal healthcare comes at a great economic cost. With the longer life span of Americans and the constant spending on health promoting products the United States spends almost 3 trillion dollars yearly on healthcare (Blais & Hayes, 2015). If universal healthcare were to be provided then the United States economy would be affected. That is why it is such hot and heavy economic and social issue. Most healthcare workers take oath to providing some sort of betterment two societies health overall. It is important that healthcare be delivered to everyone no matter the circumstances so that the oath can be upheld. With this in mind economics cannot be separated. Currently almost half of healthcare spending is used to just treat 5% of the population in the United States (Boudreau, 2017). In addition, healthcare costs are rising almost 2% every year (Boudreau, 2017). All things considered, it is important to start planned out the future of healthcare and healthcare economics. Universal Health Care is definitely an option on the table that can allow the US population and its citizens to receive healthcare no matter what. A plan however needs to be in place so that economic disaster does not overwhelmed the country. Additionally to the economics of universal healthcare, the delivery of healthcare to all the newfound people is another hurdle (Blais & Hayes, 2015). Hospitals and other facilities need to be prepared to deal with the vast influx of people seeking healthcare treatment once universal healthcare is adapted. By hundreds of thousands of people gaining healthcare and them coming into the system it can bombard and potentially crippled the healthcare system. Regardless of the new influx of individuals within the system the type of health received should always be universal. No matter what economic factors might come into play the delivery of the services should never be questioned. Every patient should get the same attention, treatment and procedures no matter what is in place.
