Good health Score: 4.5 September 20th, 2017 by s

Good health is vitally important for many people. To live a good life, all of us need appropriate medical care regardless of their ability or financial capability. Therefore, I believe medical care should be free for everybody.

To begin with, most public service, including medical service, should be provided for free. With free public services, many young children and elderly people can enjoy the benefit. Nevertheless, there are many people who cannot access to medical care and suffer from disease. For example, when I was 7 or 8-year-old pupil at elementary school, I had a serious disease. Since my family cannot afford to good remedy at that time, I cannot have any immediate treatment. Although I have recovered completely, the experience still makes me a little scared whenever I think of it. In order to eliminate such a terrible situation in this modern society, I stress minimal public services should be offered for free to poor people, especially young children.

Secondly, medical care should be offered to everybody. There might be some people who insist that such services should be provided only for people in need. However, it is difficult to judge objectively whether a patient should be provided with medical care or not. If we were to return to the example of my own experience above, it is easy to understand. When I first went to a small hospital in my hometown, the doctor told us that thorough medical treatment would have been preferable, but that it is not a must. Yet when I went to a big hospital in the US later, another doctor gave us completely opposite opinion. This example demonstrates that even expert cannot judge whether a patient should have medical care in any case, or they do not need. Therefore, I believe everyone should have the access to medical care.

In conclusion, it should be noted that medical care should be provided for everyone, for free. I feel this way because terrible situations for poor people should be eliminated, and because it is difficult to judge appropriately who should be provided with medical care.
