Primary Task Response (due by Wednesday): Within the Discussion

This answer was rated:

Primary Task Response (due by Wednesday): Within the Discussion Board area, write 3–4 paragraphs that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas:

For your third writing journal, read Peter Singer, “Why We Must Ration Health Care," and Leonard Laster, “Rationing Medical Care: A Second Opinion,” located in the CTUO Library database. To locate these documents, please go to the Library and then “Find Articles and Books.” In the new window that opens, scroll down until you see National Newspapers (ProQuest) and click on the link to open it. Click the search button to locate the Singer article in the New York Times Magazine, July 19, 2009, p. 38 (6 pages) and then search for the Laster article in The Washington Post, August 30, 1990, p. A23 (ProQuest document ID:(NNN) NNN-NNNN.
You should save each article in full text and take notes.
Then, write a 3–4 paragraph piece in response to the following question: Based on your careful reading and analysis of the arguments both Singer and Laster present on the two sides of this issue, what is your conclusion concerning what should be done to ration or not to ration?
Be sure to use proper APA citation and attribution formats if you quote from or refer to the texts – or any other texts.

The issue with healthcare is becoming more and more extreme. The baby boomers are getting older and will require additional health care services. The number of people unemployed and unable to afford medical coverage has only increased with the recession. Prior to the recession people struggled to pay for healthcare coverage and getting the proper coverage due to HMO interference. Now we have come to the point of choosing who is worthy of medical services and the types of medical services to be given. The concept of treatment as a right even without coverage may quickly disappear and Americans who can't afford the coverage or don't qualify will be excluded.

The justifications for rationing health care seem logical and necessary to those who are paying for their health and the health of others. It is one thing to have high premiums for the coverage type such as single, spouse and children. It is another concept altogether taking on the responsibilities of a stranger's healthcare needs. America is a nation that instills the perception of working to get yourself to the place you want to be. The amount of work and your level of success are based on your drive. When it comes to medicine, something that is fundamental to human survival the same rules should not apply. Think about a medical coverage plan that only allows one covered doctor's visit a year because the individual's income only allows that much medical coverage. Can we truly afford to slowly kill and injure people because money is the obstacle (Singer, 2009)?

It was stated earlier that healthcare is a human right which is true and those rights should not be infringed upon by the cost of care. The concept of universal health care is foreign to those who live in the United States. Instead of placing high price tags on medical breakthroughs, procedures, supplies, equipment and doctor's fees there would be a standardized cost. This cost means equality for everyone in need of medical assistance such as the elderly and the unemployed. The homeless would also be included. Universal health care transforms medicine from simply profit to a life extending tool of well-being. The playing field of medicine and health care must become level or our government will be involved in a new form of genocide (Laster, 1990).

I am in complete agreement with the concept of universal health care. Everyone needs help as they get older and also as they live life. Accidents and sickness are not going away simply because people can't pay for treatment.
