Jun 10, 2008
San Francisco Chronicle reported that the Bush Administration just show support on a recent lawsuit file by the Golden Gate Restaurant Association against San Francisco City. According to them Healthy San Francisco program violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. The City of San Francisco could proceed with their current law while waiting for the outcome of the appeal after a three judge panel rulings.

The San Francisco Health Care program are designed to help the 82 000 uninsured households to access health care services at city clinics and public hospitals while the private employers with a minimum of 20 employees together with the non-profit organization must spend small amount when claiming the health care.

There are several reasons why health insurance is important. Health insurance are protection of individuals if there something uncertain happen to them. It is extremely important if the individual or member of the family is traveling abroad. There is a report that the needs in having health insurance have been increased. It became necessity now a day. If individual can afford now they will buy it. Philadelphia Inquirer noted that the average cost is almost $12000 for each family.

But having insurance policy was not cheap especially to those of old age, if they will only trust their retirement fees as income.

According to the New York Times a number of health insurers have started to charge thier member a proportion of on medicines especially those expensive prescribed medications in contrast to setting co pay to lower its price. This is due to the "TIER 4" system; this system can affect even those who are already insured.

Typically insured people will pay 20% up to 30% on the costs of medication. Tier 4 systems consist of medicines for multiple sclerosis, arthritis, hemophilia, and some cancers. It is a "pay the price or do without" policy. About 10% of health group plans include the tier 4 system.

Stephen Isaacs, a consultant from Isaacs-Jellinek, and Steven Schroeder fro the University of California-San Francsico talks about the efforts given away by the California lawmakers to revamp the Health Care System of Californaia. They also examinie the standart six obstacles tin achieving the general coverage, that is mandates of employee, mandates individually, costs, containing costs, design of the benefits design and partisan politics.

Another perspective from Professor Sherry Glied at University of Columbia, talks about the advantage of health insurance mandate individually to produce better health coverage system as well as the relationship of such mandates and the subsidies to prevent holders form dropping the health coverage.

The Managed Care is a type of affordable insurance. This type is very popular. The health insurance company itself has its own network of doctors, hospitals and pharmacies and the insured individual has to visit them if necessary. Patients possess co-pays which they give at the time they visit the physician. Most of the time medicinal prescription are shouldered by the insurers.There are many plans of affordable health insurance for different age groups, including managed care. Low cost insurance plans are available for teenage under nineteen years of age, pregnant ladies, adults that have family, adults without families, adults whose over 65 years of age.
