Question by Christopher R: Healthcare resources are limited how can these be allocated in a way that they serve all Americans?
If healthcare is a right or a privilege, how can society manage the advantages and disadvantages?

Best answer:

Answer by dogsrspcl
I feel like the AMA only allows a few graduates for med school and make the tests so difficult that we are not getting enough medical doctors to meet our demands.

Therefore we need to get busy and provide more schools and lesson the criteria for testing. They make it difficult to keep the demand high and the pay high. Ridiculous!

As the costs of medical care and supplies continue to rise, consumers want to be reimbursed for as many expenses as possible, says Lynn Wilson, Co-Founder of The CareGiver Partnership. “The good news is, there are several areas worth checking into to be reimbursed for the costs of incontinence products.”

According to U.S. Internal Revenue Service guidelines, the cost of incontinence supplies may be tax-deductible if shown theyre necessary to relieve the effect of a specific disease, says Wilson. A physician can diagnose medical incontinence and may be able to advise on reimbursement, depending on ones health and financial situation.

Other options include Medicare, a health insurance program for people age 65 or older or with certain disabilities or end-stage renal disease, and Medicaid, health insurance that helps many people who cant afford medical care pay for some or all of their medical bills.

Be sure to also check your telephone books county government section for aging and disability resource centers, or ask your local senior center to help you find resources, says Wilson. Check if your area has a diaper bank, where products are donated by organizations or individuals, then given to people who cannot afford them; some diaper banks include incontinence supplies for adults.

Wilson suggests starting with the following list of government and senior resources:
