It’s Healthy Competition, Not Govenment Takeover

  The public option is just insurance coverage you can purchase that is affordable and provides quality coverage for healthcare expenses. It is not a takeover, it is not forcing hospitals or health providers to change how healthcare is given, it’s not forcing private insurance companies to go out of business, and it’s not going to be a mandate that you have to buy a public healthcare insurance. There will still be private hospitals and general hospitals that provide the same care that they provide today. The only change will be anyone that doesn’t have insurance can now afford to get it and if you lose your healthcare from an illness or separation from your job you will be able to continue your present coverage and have the security that you can’t be just dropped. There is no provision in the healthcare reform bills that provides illegal immigrants with free insurance nor will they be able to purchase the public option insurance. Hospitals wont have to continue to raise healthcare costs because of millions of non-payments from the uninsured. This will control costs and private insurance companies wont have to continue to raise premiums year after year in the double digits.

In the end a public option will provide competition and give consumers a choice for what type of coverage they want to pay for if it is a Cadillac plan from a private insurer or a minimal plan that covers mostly catastrophic. Americans should have choices and options in healthcare insurances that they can tailor based on there own needs and how much they want to pay. The public option gives Americans that option to decide if the quality is worth paying an affordable monthly premium or a more tailored private option insurance that affords them more amenities or perhaps a hybrid of public insurance and private coverage that adds additional services in healthcare. Competition is a healthy option we see it in our public and private schools, or in the postal industry between UPS, FedEx, and USPS. Just because the government provides a public option it doesn’t mean our way of life is going to change it’s just providing another choice to healthcare that is very important to all Americans rich or poor.
