If the affordable care act extends health insurance coverage to 30 million people, how will the current healthcare system be able to meet this demand?

If the affordable care act extends health insurance coverage to 30 million people, how will the current healthcare system be able to meet this demand?

Complex answer: Using the current system & increasing coverage will not work. The new system will have a large primary care base for prevention and early detection of chronic disease & a smaller base for specialist care for the really sick people. Not everyone needs a "cadillac" to maintain good health when a "chevy" or "a bus" can work. Personal responsibility and nauseating profits need to be discussed as well. ...Read more

School paper: how does a disciplinary and or criminal record affect the ability to get into professional school/medical school?

Agree with answer: I spent 16 years on the admission committee of our local medical school. A felony will prevent a medical license. The law school has a committee that reviews backgrounds and would not recommend admission. This is the state of indiana. I doubt others are more liberal. I have read stories about a "reformed" prisoner who was then admitted to the bar. Ask your attorney general. ...Read more
