Affordable Healthcare Act

...Affordable Health Care for America Act (H.R. 3962) The Economic Impact The Affordable Health Care for America Act (H.R. 3962 was originally signed into law by President Barack Obama in November 2009, but was not upheld by the Supreme Court until June 2012. The updated statue is known as Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The purpose of this reform is to provide affordable and quality health care for all Americans. At the State level, insurance companies are required to justify rate increases of ten percent or more to make sure that the increase is not unreasonable for individuals and small businesses. States should have a Rate Review program established, if not then the Federal Government will perform the rate reviews for that state. This will affect the state because small business will not have to cut back on employees due to increases in health care premiums which in turn could possibly reduce unemployment, Medicare/Medicaid and food stamps benefits at the state level. Equity of Resource Allocations in U.S. Healthcare Under the Affordable Healthcare Act, all Americans will have access to affordable and quality healthcare. This bill should reduce the number of uninsured people by thirty million. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) predicts a 200 billion dollar reduction in the federal deficit over the next ten years and a decrease in healthcare spending by the government. This act will provide tax cuts and subsidies to employers to help increase the......

Indian Act

...Agreements: The Indian Act and Canadian Treaties In modern society the question of why the aboriginal population receives benefits often arises. Much of today’s youth does not understand that the Native American people were often stripped of their rights in the past in order to gain these advantages. Two main incidents were established in the Aboriginal history, the first was the treaties that spread across Canada and the second incident was the Indian Act of 1876. The main difference between the Indian Act and treaties were the aboriginal’s role in the decision-making. Treaties allowed for a compromise between the Natives and the government that allowed for benefits on both ends whereas the Indian act was imposed on the Native culture by the Canadian government without any arrangement with the aboriginals. This paper will first describe the history of treaties and what they entail for both parties and also look at the formation of the Indian Act. Then, this paper will look at how each had affected the Aboriginal people in similar and different ways. Finally this paper will look at the relation in today’s society that the treaties have in Canada and what life would be like if the Indian Act was still a large part of how First Nations people would have been treated if the Act was not changed following World War II. After these points, a reader should have a better understanding of a topic that they may know little about. By looking at both the Indian Act and Canadian......

Indian Contract Act

...THE INDIAN CONTRACT ACT, 1872 The Law of Contract Constitutes the most important branch of mercantile or commercial law. It affects everybody, more so, trade, commerce anq industry. It may be said that the contract is the foundation of the civilized world. The law relating to contract is governed by the Indian Contract Act, 1872 (Act No. IX of 1872). The preamble to the Act says that it is an Act "to define and amend certain parts of the law relating to contract". It extends to the whole of India except the State of Jammu and Kashmir. The Act mostly deals with the general principles and rules governing contracts. The Act is divisible into two parts. The first part (Section 1-75) deals with the general principles of the law of contract, and therefore applies to all contracts irrespective of their nature. The second part (Sections 124-238) deals with certain special kinds of contracts, e.g., Indemnity and guarantee, bailment, pledge, and agency. The term contract has been defined by various authors In the following manner: "A contract is an agreement creating and defining obligations between the parties". -Salmond "A contract is an agreement enforceable at law, made between two or more persons, by which rights are acquired by one or more to acts or forbearances on the part of the other or others". -Anson "Every agreement and promise enforceable at law is a contract". -Sir Fredrick Pollock The Indian Contract Act has defined contract...

Affordable Healthcare Act

...How Does Your Business Fair? (The Impact of Affordable Care Act on Small Business) On March 23, 2010 President Obama signed into law the comprehensive health reform known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act informally known as Affordable Care Act. According to the Executive Office of the President, Council of Economic Advisors (EOP/CEA), “the key goals of health care reform is to reduce the growth rate of costs while maintaining choice of doctors and health plans and assuring quality, affordable health care for all Americans.” (The Economic Case for Health Care Reform, June 2009) The ACA is created to improve the overall quality of health care delivery and its’ systems while adding new consumer protections. In the ACA there is a clause known as the individual mandate. This mandate requires most U.S. citizens and legal residents to obtain qualifying health care insurance coverage, and if not will be required to pay a tax penalty. Effective January 1, 2014 employers with fifty or more employees that do not provide affordable health coverage will receive an assessment where for those businesses with less than fifty employees are exempt. States have created health benefit exchanges for individuals and small businesses through which health coverage can be purchased at affordable prices. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published several fact sheets and brochures highlighting what the ACA means for large and small businesses,......

The Indian Contract Act, 1872

...THE INDIAN CONTRACT ACT, 1872 The law relating to contract is governed by the Indian Contract Act, 1872. The Act came into force on the first day of September, 1872. It extends to the whole of India except the State of Jammu and Kashmir. The Act is by no means exhaustive on the law of contract. It does not deal with all the branches of the law of contract. Thus, contracts relating to partnership, sale of goods, negotiable instruments, insurance etc. are dealt with by separate Acts. What is contract? The term contract has been defined by various authors in the following manner: “A contract is an agreement creating and defining obligations between the parties”. —Salmond “A contract is an agreement enforceable at law, made between two or more persons, by which rights are acquired by one or more to acts or forbearances on the part of the other or others”. —Anson “Every agreement and promise enforceable at law is a contract”. —Sir Fredrick Pollock The Indian Contract Act has defined contract in Section 2(h) as “an agreement enforceable by law”. These definitions indicate that a contract essentially consists of two distinct parts. First, there must be an agreement. Secondly, such an agreement must be enforceable by law. To be enforceable, an agreement must be coupled with an obligation. A contract therefore, is a combination of the two elements: (1) an agreement and (2) an obligation. Thus Contract = Agreement +enforcement......

The Indian Removal Act of 1830

...THE INDIAN REMOVAL ACT OF 1830 Migdalia Tuero HIST101: American History to 1877 Professor Kathleen Davis February 13, 2014 There are several historical events and issues that have impacted the contemporary political development among American history. In the history of America one of these groups are the Native Americans. The white man throughout the South called for a removal of the Indian peoples. They wanted the Native Indians to be resettled to the west because their presence created a problem for the white man who needed additional land for settlement. “The status of Native American peoples posed an equally complex political problem” (Henretta, Edwards, Self 2012, 302). Therefore, Andrew Jackson posed the Indian Removal Act of 1830. This Act was passed on May 28, 1830 in order to authorize the president to give unsettled land in the west to the eastern state Indians as part of the removal from their land. The Indian Removal Act of 1830 removed the Native Americans from their rightful lands and it also is responsible for the deaths of 4000 Native American Indians. In 1830, the population in the states of Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and, Florida amongst other southern states, were growing rapidly, therefore it appeared that the “removal to the West seemed the only way to protect Indian peoples from alcoholic devastation and financial exploitation and to preserve the Indians’ culture” (Henretta et al. 2012, 302). However, this was not the case and...

However, there is not only one scenario that can affect the hospitals but there are several scenarios that can create an impact on the functions of the hospital. There are three scenarios that would be highlighted in the current topic. These three scenarios have a tendency to put a hospital at risk for financial stability. The first scenario that can produce a negative impact on the hospital risk is related to patient care and safety. The second scenario is related to the physical plant. The third and last scenario is related to staffing. The role of HIM practitioner in this regard would be very important. They would serve as a clinical quality assessment resource and as a team member to perform their tasks related to healthcare work. Therefore, all the issues related to three scenarios will be discussed in detail. The impetus for quality improvement has been driven in recent years by three main factors: 1. The amount of money that the US spends on healthcare per capita and as a percent of GDP is far higher than any other country in the world. We spend 15% of GDP, with the......

Indian Reorganization Act of 1934

...The Indian Reorganization Act of 1934, also known as the Wheeler Howard Act or the IRA, had a major impact on the everyday lives of Native American Tribes that were scattered across the United states. The Indian Reorganization Act provided the means and tools for tribes to form their own governments and constitutions. The IRA stopped the general allotment act that was put into effect by the Dawes of 1887. The Indian Reorganization Act granted the Secretary of Interior a tremendous amount of power over Native American affairs ranging from land, livestock, employment, government, etc. According to the reorganization plan, after a tribe or nation voted to accept the IRA, it would draw up a constitution and bylaws, submit it to a referendum, have the Secretary of the Interior certify the results, and then start operating as a corporate tribal council. Of the 181 tribes accepting the Indian Reorganization Act between 1934 and 1945, only ninety-six adopted a tribal constitution, and only seventy-three tribes ever received corporate business charters. Seventy-seven tribes with a population of 86,365 members rejected the Act outright. Several of these were large reservation groups, such as the Klamath Indians of Oregon and the Crows of Montana. An especially bitter blow to Collier was the rejection of the IRA by the Navajo Nation. With 98 percent of the eligible Navajo voting, the tribe rejected the Act by 419 votes. The Navajo had not forgiven the Collier administration for its......
