This would be a universal health care system that the federal government would manage to ensure that all US citizens were covered, along with creating more efficient costs. By nationalizing health care for all citizens, this creates a planned budget with the ability to bargain with pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and equipment providers allowing cost of care to be decreased (InterExchange, 2019). Additionally, insurance companies would also not have the need to be competing for private paid costs from individuals or deny coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions which may disqualify them from coverage.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
