Excerpt from White Paper :

Healthcare in Maryland

The author of this report has been given three basic tasks and/or series of questions for this assignment. The first task is to search for a primary care physician in the city of Bethesda, Maryland. Upon completing a general search, the author of this report will describe how the choice of physician was made and whether (and to what extent) price would have on the decision as it is made. Finally, the author of this report will generally describe the factors in the decision that was made. Second, the author of this report will do a quick price compare for an MRI that would be done on a thirteen-year-old that is complaining of headaches. A table that shows the price differences will be shown. Finally, the author will summarize how long the process took and how comfortable the author would be in purchasing these services and determining the value of the same.

Analysis

When it comes to finding a physician in Bethesda, there is no shortage of websites online that offer the ability to review physicians. There are third party websites that list off the doctors in an area and there are also websites for the doctors and healthcare locations themselves. The third-party websites that exist include DocSpot,...

Price is actually not a huge factor for the author of this report because there is a simple co-pay to be paid for each visit. The major question that would be asked when it comes to cost is whether the doctor's location/office handles and files for that insurance or not. If they do, then other considerations would then take hold. If not, the author of this report would disqualify that office/doctor. Factors that would be considered beyond insurance coverage would include where the doctor went to school, how long they have been practicing and their record when it comes to their business practices and complaints about their care. Examples of the latter would include medical malpractice accusations and the like.

When it comes to the cost of an MRI, the author of this report found the following rates from a litany of different websites. The costs listed below are for uninsured payments that are bearing the entire cost themselves.

If this revitalized political concern mirrors a rising consent that the present structure has touched its ceiling of difficulty and expenditure, simultaneously that it eliminates so many citizens in order to create the circumstances politically hazardous, something essentially might change.

When the legislation came up for a vote it passed the House 220-215. In the Senate, the vote passed easily as the Democrats held a strong majority. In both votes, just one Republican voted for the Affordable Act. The limitations of the American system are many, but money plays a vital role in any legislation. Millions of dollars went into lobbying against the bill (insurers, conservative special interest groups, etc.).
