02 Mar 2012. Medically Reviewed. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) became law on March 23, 2010, when President Obama signed the bill passed by Congress. Some health reform provisions took effect immediately, such as providing access to insurance coverage for Americans with preexisting conditions and extending coverage to young people through their parents’ policies through. Many of the sweeping changes — an end to insurance companies withholding coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, government-regulated insurance marketplaces and the individual requirement.

The ACA provided the pathway to extend health insurance to everyone. Now is not the time to stray from that path, but to strengthen it to ensure we reach our destination: comprehensive and affordable universal coverage for all Americans. Learn more about the AMA vision on health care reform.

Healthcare for American NOW derails polarization between Single Payer and Corporate Health Care (HSA’s) by promoting deceptive case for ‘public option’. HCAN leadership functions as an arm of so-called liberal wing of DP. Many people have been wondering when the Health Care Reform Bill that President Obama recently signed will take effect.

Some of the changes are to take effect as early as later this year and the others will come into effect over the next four years. Here is a summary of the timeline.

The historic health care reform bill signed into law by President Obama in March 2010 begins to address many of these issues, but until its provisions are fully implemented, the impact and cost of reform remain unknown.

  • I know me and everyone else hates America in general (I’m Asian-American), but can we mention how not disorganized the closed captions are!?

  • I had this lady telling me that the American healthcare system is the best for animals and humans and that European vets were unprofessional because they aren’t trained well (The conversation was about declawing cats which I’m 100% against) and I don’t think a country that has that much of a bad healthcare system for humand has a better system for pets

  • In California a teenager was infected by Corona virus and they let him die because he had no insurance. I love America, but I’m sorry! You have to be a millionaire just to be sure that you won’t starve/die if you got sick. That’s not a health care system, but a DEATH care system!

  • Ok. I’m gonna bring my own swabs, Chair, tissues, bandages, gloves and anything else. Is their anyway I can opt out of anesthesia during surgery? No? I didn’t think so. So why are they charging people for it? I feel like they would charge you to breath the air if they could! And use toilet paper��

  • USA be like: We got the moast expensive, last efficient helthcare in the Western world, but we have brainwashed the country into thinking that enything Else is evil communism

  • The fact that the us is so un confident with their doctors that they have to make you PAY for the possibility for them being sued really says something.

  • ” Medical bankruptcies ” exist, because bankruptcy lawyers make several hundred to thousands of dollars per hour to handle them. And they will never go away.

  • Its no wonder gun crime and murders are high in america, when people cant even afford to pay for mental health treatment leading to many untreated people to roam freely round america����‍♂️

  • I had a panic attack that I thought was a heart attack. I went to the hospital and they basically just told me that I’m ok and should follow up with a doctor. I now have over 3k in bills for that visit.

  • my ex guild mate is russian, he has free healthcare. but he is high risk for “the crown”.
    he wanted me to comment that he hopes everyone is safe and fine. I hope he is too:)

  • I am gobsmacked! I knew healthcare was costly in the US but not THAT costly.
    2 years ago, after coming home from Thailand, I contracted an infection in my leg which required immediate surgery. Spent 4 days in hospital and had a nurse visit me at home after I was discharged to change my dressing daily for 3 weeks.
    I was also given supply to change my dressing for a further month. I’m talking scissors, dressing, saline solution, wipes, tweezers and disposable injector to last me a month. Didn’t pay a single cent.
    I’m now thinking if I had been in America, I would probably go bankrupt too.

  • America’s military budget is like 600bn. Like this is crazy…. And having to pay for health? Jesus, isn’t health a priority for citizens? US is such a superficial country.

  • As evidence by the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic which shows us that our healthcare system has collapsed. At the beginning of this year my wife was in a coma for 2 1/2 months due to septic shock as a result of her cesarean birth. After all expenses were finalized we owe about $1.6 million in healthcare. Granted we are in the process of suing the hospital and some of the doctors cause Mistakes were made on their behalf. I am hopeful that we can at least remove some or all of the costs of what happened to my wife.

  • My son had to go to the hospital 6 times within the last year. Ambulance every time, plus a ambulance helicopter the one time. (Norway) I wonder what that would have cost me in out of pocket cost in the US…

  • I’ve had panic attacks thinking about how much my parents have paid for my health.

    Went to an inpatient facility for self-harm, this is the timeline:
    referred to the hospital/ER when I told a pediatrician (2 services)
    was taken to the facility in an ambulance (3 now)
    and spent about a week or so there (only got to leave “quickly” because my grandpa passed away, to which I had to beg the psychologist(s) to sign for release so I could attend his funeral), only saw the psychiatrist for about 5 minutes a day and had group “therapy” that was the quality of a school guidance counselor for an hour every other day. Oh! And everyday at this facility costed $1,000.

    At the end of the day, got prescribed some new meds, and left with far more emotional trauma than I entered with. Thinking of spending another day there makes me want to dry heave my intestines out.

  • You say the hippocratic oath is about treating you the best they can and treat you ethically. That surely means not charging you more than you can afford, and certainly not bankrupting you?

  • My parents are still try to pay off my brothers hospital bill after 2 years it’s ridiculous. My mom is always yelling at my brothers and I telling us to be careful so we don’t have to go to the hospital.

  • Why are you giving publicity to a Socialist program?
    And while we’re at it, why didn’t the $%^&$^ing Republican Party take its majority and repeal it? Don’t say McCain though he indeed was bought.
    And John Roberts, there is a special place in Hell for someone who was a traitor to his country while serving in high office. Have a nice day:)

  • Diabetes IS a greatly avoidable disease.
    And while I also don’t like the cost of the U.S. health care system (as someone with a chronic illness), I have experienced the “free” health care in one of the mentioned countries many times and the difference in quality showed me that you get what you pay for. Also: NOTHING is really “free”.

    Bottom line is that health care is a service, not a right. And services cost money.
    I like “free stuff” as much as the next guy, but realistically I don’t expect the shop to fix my car for free, because I rely on it…

  • During a Holiday in the US, my daughter became sick. We had to go to a clinic. 15 Min in the clinic and some medicine $ 175, Wen I travel to the USA I always take a travel insurance that also covers the medical cost.

  • Yo ok but if you did indeed refuse treatment while you are injured (say with a broken leg) would you be forcing all the doctors in the hospital to break the oaths?

  • wow. no S.Korea in the list?

    Let’s give Covid pandemic for an example. In my country, it costs around 4000 dollars to cure an individual. Healthcare of my country pays around 3000 dollars, and 1000 is up to the individual.

    Also, general spending in the hospital is discounted 50%. So, our drug, checkup, tests etc are half the price from original.

  • I live in Malaysia: a 3rd world country. Going to clinic for a severe lower back pain. With xray and pain killer, they charged me for USD 0.40. Yep, 40¢! They referred me to the nearest hospital, consulted by an orthopedic, they took another xray. Replaced my pain killer and gave me 3 months of hydrotherapy sessions that cost USD1.2 per session. They paid me once when I forget to bring my wallet.

  • I don’t understand why people think that’s a socialist or communist thing, healthcare is a basic human right, and for those talking about a lot of taxes or bad quality, go and visit germany

  • These devils insurance companies take money but refused to give back our money for life and death situation during COVID-19! United States strike against insurance companies.

  • America could have invested on healthcare system instead of building the “great wall of Trump”. And America could have also just issued more dollars and get the money they need for healthcare system, since US dollar is key currency. But it looks like no one have done such thing.

  • I’ve had an appendectomy and a coccyx cyst surgery back in the day. If I had lived in the USA I would be still paying the medical bills. If Americans have to pay for everything, what do they pay their taxes for?

  • Here in Spain we have a public healthcare system, but two years ago i decided to take a gastric reductin procedure. I was 5 days in the hospital, they made all the pre-surgery staff and I had all the post surgery visits just for 15.000€. Here we have a public healthcare system and the private healthcare is cheaper than in USA.

  • If the US government didn’t prop up the medical industry with subsidies and health care programs, and got rid of the massive amount of red tape needed to work in medicine, medical cost would be much lower, and Americans wouldn’t be gouged(or need to be robbed through insane tax rates). The solution is less government, not more.

  • I think that it will be easier of the US to transition into a Swiss or Singaporean healthcare system compared to a single-payer healthcare system. There are too many idiots here that will cry “socialism” if we even try to move to a single-payer healthcare system, even though it is not socialist at all and it is beneficial for everyone. Also, Switzerland and Singapore also have amazing outcomes with low costs and universal coverage.

  • What’s your experience with the healthcare system in your country? Did you receive treatment you needed or was it denied because you couldn’t afford it?

  • I thought this would be a video that explains how the healthcare system works, but instead it’s just some kind of pro national healthcare ad:( Wish it was possible to find balanced and valuable info anymore anywhere rather than camouflaged propoganda

  • I just came here to inform you that everything said here is a LIE. There is only one reason the US doesnt have universal healthcare, and its because the US has universal bathroom access instead.

    Its a natural law like gravity that a nation can only have one or the other. Not both.

  • Small bit of feedback, at 7:56 you have accidentally swapped the “Tissues” and “IV Bag” images with each other was slightly confusing. I suspect it’s an easy thing to fix, though!

  • Don’t you see America? It is the insurance we should get rid of. Today, I was chased out of Western Dental while I was receiving treatment. I was told that the bone graft will cost $1880. I asked her why are you charging more than the double of what you charge the insurance company. Her answer was because my insurance did not cover. I actually got kicked out with numb tooth. Insurance was created with the corrupt politicians for maximum profit for themselves.

  • Turkey, UK, New Zealand and many others: National Healthcare system will cover your expenses.
    USA: Meh, how much Benjamins do you have?

  • I am so thankful that cost sharing ministries are allowed as an alternative to commercial health insurance under the ACA. We have been members of a faith based health sharing group for years and would have taken a big financial hit if we had to go back to having health insurance.

  • My jaw was dislocated by yawning. I went to ER. It took a doctor 10 seconds to put it back. I didn’t use a drop of any pain meds. I was charged $1500.oo. Then I filled a form saying that I was not able to pay, then later I paid $750.oo.

  • Deductibles are the bane of my existence. I have to pay for everything out of pocket as a result of having an HDHP which is the only plan my work offers.

  • To this might hurt a lot of Americans, but in reality America seems to be more of a company then a nation as well as it doesn’t seem to be fighting for the very principles that they’re (white business owners back in the day) started the revolution.

    I give no envy to the Americans, once I dreamt of going there and take a career in the gaming industry and now I’m grateful that I am not in America along with free education and thankful for The Infographic show for making this video and to the many other’s out that are really shining the light on the true American society and political rights

  • competition & capitalism has been the greatest weapon of US

    which made them world superpower

    u can compete on military, economy, tech, freedom, prize, democracy, literature,art,music on &on

    but u should never compete when it comes to HUMAN LIFE

    isn’t it beautiful bcuz the only when u pay less is “WHEN U LOVE”

  • We can ask our Congress to adopt for the I.R.S. Virginia’s tax-credits for charity-care. H.E.Butler III M.D., F.A.C.S., Commander, U.S.N.R.; Instructor, Psychiatry, E.V.M.S. [email protected] post.Harvard.edu
