  • UHC and HCR are two different animals. Medicaid is a government run program to help the poor, it is not universal, only for a certain group of people.

    HCR as it currently stands will cost the consumer monthly premiums, co-pays, and deductibles. Medicaid is free to the person who is eligible, with no co-pays or fees.

  • Since we don't have UHC there is no way to say. Our Medicaid doesn't provide nearly the luxuries as UHC in some other countries, but the countries that have it are trying to get rid of it because it's bankrupting them.

  • Countries in blue have some type of universal health care. Countries in green are currently attempting to implement some type of universal health care. Orange countries have universal health coverage provided by United States war funding.

  • Yes, Medicaid provides coverage for a limited number of people in need. UHC is a single payer system. Not hr3200

  • Not much but UHC is actually medicare for younger folks. Medicaid is only given to certain poor and disabled people so though the poor will get assistance it will not be totally paid for by our tax money. Thus it is more like Medicare and not Medicaid.
