Medicare is a program that is meant to make it so that people that do not have healthcare, perhaps because they can’t afford it or because they don’t have any other ways in which they can get it, would be able to get the treatment they need and subsequently no longer have to worry about how their health will suffer if they get ill and don’t have the money to pay for procedures in a full and thorough manner which is the case for most Americans these days.
Instating a cashless mediclaim policy has made it easier for people to gain access to this health insurance but the main problem with this is that it places a lot of strain on the budget that governments have to adhere to. Hence, cutting down on costs is always a high priority for most governments, and since you can’t just cut medicare since lots of people rely on it for their healthcare needs you need to think of newer and better ways in which the strain placed on healthcare can be managed in an efficient as well as highly positive way.
One thing that the government can do is that it can fund health boosting programs that would encourage people to exercise and eat right, as well as subsidize the creation of public spaces where exercise is possible. If people lead healthier lives they will need less healthcare over the course of the years that they spend in the country, and this will lead to far less of a strain being placed on the budget. Most people don’t live healthy lives because they don’t have the option to, so giving the option can definitely help them out.
