Why Healthcare Policies Are Geared Toward Helping the Rich

Available for Interviews: Dr. Reagan B. Anderson

Dr. Anderson is the author of Universal Death Care: A Solution for Healthcare in the Age of Entitlement. Dr. Anderson was a combat doctor in Iraq, and has since run a successful medical clinic in the U.S. He wrote this book because he is tired of profit-driven policies that don’t support American’s health. For this reason, Anderson has dedicated his life to changing healthcare in America.

 

What Dr. Anderson Can Say in
an Interview on the Healthcare System
:

  • Most policies are active public health policies which require you to do something to be the benefit.
  • Active policies tend to favor the rich since they have better access to knowing about the policies and often have the resources to take advantage of them. Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are a good example.

  • Those in a lower socioeconomic class are often struggling to pay the bills. They do not have excess resources to take care advantage of active policies.
  • Passive policies do not require you to do anything out of the ordinary to receive benefits. For example, fluoride in the water. Passive policies are important when you do not have resources to be actively involved in your healthcare.
  • Passive policies are harder to craft but are necessary to help people regardless of their resources.
Dr. Anderson can explore all of these issues and offer solutions to getting the healthcare system where it needs to be so all Americans can have the same access to quality care.
