Abstract

Historically speaking, the American private sector and employer-based system have run a whole nation for centuries, and seemingly, the United States private ideological obstinacy has forever been a noteworthy obstacle in the field of health care insurance. In brief, this article will basically debate, analyse, and review the issue of health care insurance in the United States. Furthermore, this paper will centrally argument how far it was still unachievable for the federal authorities to insure millions of American citizens, and implement U.S. health care insurance systems and reforms based on a universal network from 1930 to 1990. Furthermore, even international humanitarian organisations played a major task in spreading a United States’ health care insurance system, along with local American organisations as AALL. Actually, a number of American private medical institutions as AMA, AHA, and a portion of the American citizens had vehemently opposed all universalisation of such federal action often named socialised medicine. Fortunately, all the American Presidents of that period disseminated loads of efforts in trying to implement a national health care insurance system and reform. Even worldwide philosophical trends had left a precious print on this domain, for the ethical conscience should have played a salient role in reinforcing the availability of the system, and achievement of historic reforms if a national health care insurance system would have been adopted a long time ago.
