Economic Scene: When Cutting Access to Health Care, There’s a Price to Pay

And the American deficit has been getting worse. “Each year, other high-income countries are improving their health at a much faster rate than the United States, and the United States currently ranks lowest on a variety of health measures,” the report by the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council noted.Continue reading the main storyI bring this up, senators, because you are considering whether to drive a stake through the Affordable Care Act, cutting access to care for millions of mostly poorer, sicker and older Americans.Of course, the dismal health situation is not all the fault of the health care system — which, until the passage of the Affordable Care Act, was the only one in the developed world that routinely barred access or limited care for millions of people of modest means.That is because violence accounts for a large share of Americans’ excessive mortality, and accidents take a disproportionate toll. Nor is the health care system entirely to blame for the nation’s elevated obesity rate — a leading cause of problems like diabetes.What’s more, the United States’ higher tolerance of poverty undoubtedly contributes to higher rates of sickness and death. Americans at all socioeconomic levels are less healthy than people in some other rich countries. But the disparity is greatest among low-income groups.Still, senators, you are not off the hook. Limited access to health care may not entirely account for the poor health and the early deaths of so many of your fellow Americans. But it accounts for a good chunk.A study about equity in access to health care for 21 countries in 2000 revealed that the United States had the highest degree of inequity in doctor use, even higher than Mexico — which is both poorer and generally more inequitable.Photoreported that health insurance improves the diagnosis and treatment of high blood pressure, and reduces death rates from breast cancer and trauma.” data-mediaviewer-credit=”Whitten Sabbatini for The New York Times” itemprop=”url” itemid=”https://static01.nyt.com/images/2017/06/28/business/28PORTER2/28PORTER2-master675.jpg”/>Annals of Internal Medicine reported that health insurance improves the diagnosis and treatment of high blood pressure, and reduces death rates from breast cancer and trauma.Credit Whitten Sabbatini for The New York TimesAnd as noted in a 2003 study by the Institute of Medicine, insurance status, more than any other demographic or economic factor, determines the timeliness and quality of health care, if it is received at all.It doesn’t require an advanced degree to figure out what limited access to a doctor can do to people’s health. A review of studies published this week in Annals of Internal Medicine reported that health insurance substantially raises people’s chances of survival. It improves the diagnosis and treatment of high blood pressure, significantly cutting mortality rates. […]
