Larry’s View

Larry’s view on any and everything.

Long term health care

We take a lot of care for our health. We address almost all our health care issues. However these health care issues are only addressed when we have to really address them and have no other choice. This is when a major illness strikes us and we have to attend to it. Except for such major happenings, there are no ways that we actually address our health care issues. There is also another shortcoming in this way of addressing the health care issues. Health cars issues are addressed only on a case to case basis. We do not address long term health care issues. We tend to address our health cars issues as and when they occur. We take all the best medicine available for the purpose of treating the ailment that we suffer from. We take all the best health care possible. However, we tend to do this keeping only the short term perspective in mind. We address all issues with a myopic view ad tend to overlook the long term health care issues which might crop up.

Of all the major long term health care issues, the most prevalent are the issues of the long term health care cots. Health care costs have been increasing in real terms over the period of time and are now quite high. Hence there has to be a way of covering these long term health care costs, which show a great inflation on almost a daily basis. These long term health care costs should be provided for on a yearly basis, that is, every year one should keep aside a certain sum of money as would be useful to fulfill these long term health care costs as and when they crop up. This can help us address the health care issue better.

Another major long term health care issue is the issue is insurance. Many people do not opt for health insurance as health insurance is treated to be a waste of money. People have a general idea that the premium on a health care insurance policy is wasted in case you do not suffer from any health care issues in the near term. This has to be addressed in a different way. People should be made aware of the long term health care benefits if taking an insurance policy and they should be coaxed into getting an insurance policy for themselves. This is beneficial to address the long term health care issue of health care costs in the long term.
