Debating the right to health care learning scenario
It is important to understand that everyone has their right to an opinion, being it ethical
vs. unethical. Most unethical cases though, are termed as illegitimate reasons, so they are
frowned upon by, or as a society.
Out of the four statements, I’m mostly inclined towards statement A as well as B given by
Dr. Miller and Dr. Garcia. I agree with Dr. Miller mostly, in the sense where we do need to
provide a clear minimum of health care to everyone. He further mentions the Affordable Care
Act, which he says is a step up in the right direction, even though it is not the ultimate solution to
the problem. The Affordable care act requires plans to cover people with pre-existing health
conditions, including that of pregnancy, etc. without charging more, this law also provides young
adults more coverage options, provides free preventative care, protects the patient’s choice of
doctors, and the list goes on (HealthCare.gov, 2017).
I also agree with a few statements made by Dr. Garcia, which were that it would be better
if it is put in to consideration if aspects of care such as sanitation and immunization become a
part of the health care providing means, then that would clearly be an indicator towards saving
lives rather than putting individuals at risk to catch a disease. As I did my research, I came across
an article about how vaccines can be provided to children, but only under certain circumstances.
One of the programs that I came across was the Vaccines for Children. VFC is a federally-funded
nationwide program that provides free vaccines to doctors and clinics that serve low-income or
uninsured children. To be eligible for the program, your child must be less than 19 years old, and
must be Medicaid eligible, uninsured, underinsured, Native American or Alaskan native. If your
child meets one or more of these criteria, you can get his or her vaccines from any VFC programenrolled doctor or clinic at no cost (ImmunizeForGood.com, 2017).

It is important for understanding the importance of a health care system among
populations, regardless of the caste, how much they earn, or religion, etc. shouldn’t be an
obstacle when attaining care from medical departments, like hospitals or other sort of clinics. I
agree with Dr. Miller about how it should be ethical to provide care for everyone, but setting the
parameters for this criterion would require a lot of work. Hopefully, in the future, health care
becomes part of an individual’s life, and provides coverage, even minimal but to the point where
it would not be a problem, towards where a person who is hand to mouth, must choose if he
should go to the doctor, or should pay for his rent or other personal issues.
