Healthcare System Practices
It often happens that a healthcare insurance company refuses to give someone coverage if they have a pre-existing condition. This means that if you have already been diagnosed with diabetes, a healthcare insurance company will likely not allow you to buy insurance. If they do allow you to buy insurance, you will be paying much higher rates than anyone else. So, reform is needed to address this issue.
Cost and accessibility were addressed in the Affordable Care Act in 2010. Things have definitely improved since then. However, we are definitely not where we want to be yet.
