Joe Biden's Health Care Policy

The United States of America has always lacked a significant affordable health care policy since Medicaid and Medicare in 1965. To solve this issue, President Barack Obama, along with Vice President Joe Biden has come up with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or famously known as Obamacare. The history was made on 23rd March 2010, as President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law with Joe Biden by his side. Their government has faced a fierce battle from the Republicans, but the Obama-Biden administration made it possible in the end. Over 100 million Americans don’t have to worry about their coverage, surprising new bills or the highly charged premiums because of the successful implementation of Obamacare. Whether it is cancer, diabetes, or heart disease, insurance companies can no longer set the lifetime/annual limits. Around 20 million additional Americans can now live with peace of mind even when they think of health insurance companies. Parent’s plan also covers people up to the age of 26 from their family.


The sad part of Obamacare is, it is attacked every day from the beginning. Republic candidates who are a part of the Congress tried on many occasions to repeal the health care policy. With Trump winning the 2016 elections, Republicans have doubled their number in the Congress, and they have been attempting to destroy the Affordable Care Act. In March 2019, Trump administration has asked the court to invalidate Obama’s Affordable Care Act completely. 


As the President of the United States, Joe Biden will forever protect his brainchild Affordable Care Act no matter who and how the attacks take place. Joe Biden will strengthen and build on the present policy instead of developing it again from scratch, once he becomes the President. Joe Biden plans to make the health care system less complicated, available to more number of Americans and reduce health care expenses levied on the common man. Joe Biden lives the dream of every middle-class American: “To have quality and affordable health care round the clock covering the entire family. Additionally, to have peace of mind while dealing with insurance companies.”

Here are the salient features proposed by Joe Biden in his Health Care Policy:

1. Health Care is a Right for all and it should not be a privilege just for few

Joe Biden always believes that affordable and quality healthcare should be delivered to every American irrespective of their race, gender, sexual orientation, income. Yet there is so much discrimination when it comes to healthcare. As the President of the United States, Joe Biden will strive to improve the below factors:

Achieving mental health parity and expanding its access Present Community Health centers provide care to the underserved population. Joe Bien plans to double the number of Community Health Centers. Reducing the high maternal mortality rate. Restore federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Protect the constitutional right to an abortion.
2. Access to Affordable Health Insurance to every American

Joe Biden will build on the Affordable Care Act and plans to give insurance to almost 97% of the Americans despite it is being constantly attacked by Republicans. Here’s how:

Extending the insurance coverage to more Americans with lower premiums. Expanding the coverage to low-income Americans also. Give every American, public health insurance like Medicare which is free from hassles. Stopping surprise billing from the Insurance companies
3. Taking actions on Drug Corporations
