Larry’s view on any and everything.

Socialized health care

Health care involves care for the health of a person or a group of persons. Health care involves getting the best from the body as regards its heath. There are many forms of health care facilities available. The choice of the best health care facility should be made keeping in mind the different costs involved with the health care facilities to be offered and also the frequency with which they have to be offered. If a health care facility is more frequently offered it will definitely cost more than a system in which health care facilities are to be offered at lesser intervals of time. This is obvious, as the cost of equipment and, medicine in the less frequent system will definitely be lesser. There are also choices of personalized and socialized systems from which a person can choose. In case of personalized systems, the facilities are available to a single person only. The society at large cannot take advantage of such a system. In the case of a socialized health care system, the health care benefited is available to the society at large and hence can be availed of by the society at large.

The costs of health care determine whether a person goes in for the personalized health care system or a socialized health care system. If the person is affluent and can afford a personalized health care system, he can go in for one. However in case a person cannot afford the basic costs of a personalized health care system, he would be better off opting of a socialized health care system for himself. This is more beneficial to him as in case he opts for a personalized system, and if he fails to pay his bills at a latter stage, the system would be stopped in between and this would lead to a great amount of hardships to the person.

Another factor affecting the choice of a health care system is the insurance that the person has availed of. In case the person has availed of a health insurance scheme, then all his basic health care expenses will be taken care of by the health care insurance scheme and the person can go in for personalized health care. However in case the person does not have an insurance scheme to his name, he should opt for socialized health care as it will serve him better in the long run.
