Top 5 reasons Obamacare is good for the U.S
Different US citizens will have different opinions on Obamacare. There are those who are celebrating the law, while others will tend to have different views. When looking into the law deeply, you will realise there are some benefits that the US citizens will benefit from. Here are Top 5 reasons Obamacare is good for the U.S:
- Removing the limit on the total benefits a healthcare beneficially will receive
There are limitations on the total amount American will receive from health care insurance. For example in 2013, Americans where entitled to a maximum medical cover of up to $2,970 beyond which the health insurance cover will not settle the medical bills. In the Obamacare, the limit will be lifted by year 2020 making the health care beneficiaries enjoy full medical cover without limits.
- Free Medicare preventive services
Medicare consumers will receive free preventive services under the law. This is a great benefit which Americas will enjoy because diseases which can be prevented will be easily prevented making many Americans enjoy healthy living.
- Pre-existing conditions
There are some people who used to be denied health insurance due to pre-existing conditions, but after the introduction of the law. No one will be denied health insurance due to his or her pre-existing medical condition. This is a great benefit because it will lead different people to enjoying health insurance cover irrespective of their pre-existing health conditions. There is premium equity where all people will have to pay the same premiums for the health insurance. There will be no cases where insurance companies will have to impose high premium rates due to pre-existing health conditions or due to age limitations.
- No restrictions on children’s access to health insurance
Children under the age of 19 were not allowed to access health insurance, but after the introduction of the law. Many children will be allowed to access health insurance even if they are under the age of 19. This is a great relieve to guardians who used to pay for medical bills for children under the age of 19 who were suffering from different health complications.
- Adult dependent insurance coverage
Adult children who used to be denied health insurance cover under their parents cover will now enjoy the cover up to the age of 26. This is a great benefit to the US citizens who used to be denied the cover after reaching a certain age limit. Families with adult children will now save on the health care to a great extent.
