The Health care programs of the government such as Medicaid and Affordable health act provides problems to poor people due to the lack of doctors that could accept the Medicaid program. Another problem includes the lack of budget for health care programs from the Federal Government. Free clinic such as the Zarephath Health Center provides health care for people who have problems with their insurance. There are more advantages in the free clinics than with the health care programs of the American Government. The health care program of the government follows a poor model which could be compensated by the free clinics.
Sociological theories could be associated with the issues presented in the article.
