Saving on Health Care Costs

A pharmaceutical industry representative said that the measures of the administration to save 1,500 million in health care costs will lead to the loss of 500 jobs. This type of argument leaves me cold. Or rather disturbs me which group interests come before the benefit of society as a whole. It’s like snuff planters complain about smoking prevention standards or manufacturers of weapons by banning free sale to individuals. What is important in the field of health, is to combat health care waste that also stimulates the corruption, the doctor in prescribing certain drugs, or lose control of many recipes that even resell on the black market. Just like that.

In any case, what can I say, the decisions to save our health system I seem prudish and even ridiculous. What would stop resolving the kits home where we store all kinds of medicines, many of them expired. Only reduce by half would save far more than these meager 1,500 million. And of course, we would avoid many problems caused by self-medication, with the new health care costs they generate. And we have believed that the welfare of this country is an unlimited mana, which justifies any pain you have a CT or MRI, any justification for ill use an ambulance and any request for drugs deserves fill a prescription. To follow so soon will not get 100% of our GDP to meet health care costs.

That, not counting the thousands of foreigners a “many of them with kidney forradoa ” coming to our country and be operated exclusively for treated like royalty with expensive treatments. For all that, I think our politicians are cowards, to raise the cuts. If you establish some kind of payment, even symbolic, for each medical act, we would see what the long queues would soon disappear in the consultations and the real patients may be cared much better.
