Since the adoption of the Affordable Care Act, the financial burdens associated with failing to adopt health insurance have become very significant. In 2014, most people who did not have health insurance for the majority of the year will lose 1% of their income to the IRS.
Millions of people have adopted healthcare in response to these measures, but we are learning that not everyone is using it. A recent article on NJ.com, a prominent news site for people of New Jersey, suggested that more and more state locals are not using healthcare.
Although they have adopted health insurance as required by the Affordable Care Act, they are forgoing opportunities to actually put it into practice at a doctor’s office.
Naturally, this serves to make sure that they will not have to pay high “out of pocket” deductibles for care, while keeping them from suffering from the ACA’s associated penalty. However, it also puts people at risk, especially as they age.
When it comes to staying healthy, self-care is not sufficient for most people, especially if they are already suffering from diseases such as high blood pressure or diabetes. However, more people are focusing on self-care as a means of saving money.
However, there is one thing that people are broadly in agreement about: The need to maintain the use of their conventional medication in order to sustain optimal health. This is true even of the segment of the population that has “dropped out” of healthcare.
As the penalties for failing to adopt health insurance continue to increase year after year, the idea that more people will be driven to take on marketplace health insurance as a result is not, as of yet, panning out.
