Federal Government and Healthcare

Provide your reasoned opinion concerning whether the federal government should continue to “own” and operate veterans’ health, or whether these functions should be “privatized”?

 With the “Medicare for All” plan, senior citizens were enabled to enroll in Medicare and experience of security of knowing that they could receive reliable and quality care in spite of their financial or health status. In fact, they have the option of receiving care from both private hospitals and physicians. In addition to it, they can also take the option of deputizing the insurers for administering benefits achieved from Medicare. However, veterans are not provided with the same options. It is important for them to receive the same options so that they can privatize their healthcare.

 Initially, the issues with the healthcare of veterans were revealed in 2014 when it was determined that several facilities of veterans were not being provided with proper care. It was identified by a poll referred to as Concerned Veterans for America that eighty-eight percent of veterans agreed that it is critical for eligible veterans to receive proper medical care from the source they find suitable. In addition to it, ninety-five percent agreed that veterans should be given the option of choosing their own source of medical care. Although veterans are satisfied with the healthcare they receive from V.A. but the waiting list enough to argue that veterans have the right of choosing the source they find suitable.

 In general, waiting lists are very long and it takes a long time for veterans to finally receive medical care. In order to address this issue, either reforms should be implemented in V.A. which enable the association to ensure that veterans are being treated properly or medical care should be privatized which can enable veterans to receive quality care without facing significant issues. Other than long waiting lists, some studies have also identified the issue of quality within the quality care which is provided by the V.A.

 These are the reasons why medical care to veterans must be privatized. There are two solutions which can be implemented by the federal government. First of all, healthcare can be privatized and secondly, reforms can be implemented in the V.A. which can help in resolving the existing quality issues. It is important, however, to understand that reforms must be capable of resolving the existing issues which are existing in the association and are preventing veterans from receiving the quality medical care that they deserve. These are the solutions which can be considered by the federal government and the most feasible solution should be implemented (NYTimes, 2016).
