Dr. Matt Boente: Beating healthcare crises with Joe Biden
Dr. Matt Boente laments the current healthcare situation in the United States. Because of it, Americans have struggled more than ever, especially now in the grip of a global health crisis, the likes of which the country has never seen before. However, he believes that the country has been experiencing a healthcare crisis way before the COVID-19 pandemic began.
The cost of medicine has never been higher. The government funding and has come up short in terms of primary care, especially in rural areas where doctors, nurses and physician assistants are needed. Insurance is exceptionally expensive. Yes, the state of healthcare in the U.S. has plummeted since 2016. And now, something must be done before it is too late.
According to Dr. Matt Boente, Joe Biden has the key to solving America’s current healthcare crises. Biden’s healthcare plan, when put into effect, will make sure that uninsured people will have coverage, that no penalties will be imposed on people with pre-existing conditions, and everyone will have the option to choose the healthcare professionals who will be taking care of them.
Dr. Matt Boente says that in the past, many uninsured individuals were refused consultation and treatment by a lot of doctors. This was also the case for Medicare/Medicaid patients since the reimbursement for these services was nowhere near substantial. And this was only the tip of the iceberg. Things have gotten worse since the Trump administration took over.
The one good thing that Americans have going for them is that Joe Biden has American healthcare as his priority. He is someone who sees past what the U.S. government could and should do, and believes that everyone can make a difference. Dr. Matt Boente emphasizes that Biden’s attitude towards the sick and elderly, as well as healthcare professionals and people who cannot afford insurance, is what the country needs if it hopes to beat the current and future healthcare crises.
