Health Care Expansion Continues to Loom

costs of generic medicationThe new law for health care that is being backed by President Obama is intended to help thirty-two million over the next ten years.  The drawback that many feel will come with this is that the medical field will not have the numbers able to support an influx of new patients.  Right now, medical colleges are trying to increase their numbers and public service announcements have been released with a call for Americans to become nurses.

As it is right now, there may be a massive shortage of doctors.  One idea that is being floated around is for there to be an increase in physician’s assistants and nurse practitioners.  These two positions are able to treat patients with little to no supervisions from a doctor. The laws of each state differ though, so there may be a need to regulate these programs with a national law.
