complete each scenario assignment:
- Complete the entire scenario.
- Compose your reflection in a Word document and be sure to address, at a minimum, the following questions:
- Why do you feel the way you do about the presented?
- Of the four responses offered in the scenario, which do you feel is the most ethical and why?
- Support your conclusions with evidence and specific examples from the textbook, as well as other sources as needed.

The scenario is not available anymore, but I have work of 3 other students that you can get the idea of what is the scenario is about. Please do not copy and paste from these files rather paraphrase them so we can avoid plagiarism. Again, you do not need to give reflection on 3 files attached, but read them to have idea on what is the case study about. If you have any questions, please ask me so we can avoid confusion. Thanks.

Running head: DEBATING THE RIGHT TO HEALTH CARE SCENARIO Debating the right to health care learning scenario Mahnoor Abbasi West Coast University 1 DEBATING THE RIGHT TO HEALTH CARE SCENARIO 2 Debating the right to health care learning scenario It is important to understand that everyone has their right to an opinion, being it ethical vs. unethical. Most unethical cases though, are termed as illegitimate reasons, so they are frowned upon by, or as a society. Out of the four statements, I’m mostly inclined towards statement A as well as B given by Dr. Miller and Dr. Garcia. I agree with Dr. Miller mostly, in the sense where we do need to provide a clear minimum of health care to everyone. He further mentions the Affordable Care Act, which he says is a step up in the right direction, even though it is not the ultimate solution to the problem. The Affordable care act requires plans to cover people with pre-existing health conditions, including that of pregnancy, etc. without charging more, this law also provides young adults more coverage options, provides free preventative care, protects the patient’s choice of doctors, and the list goes on (HealthCare.gov, 2017). I also agree with a few statements made by Dr. Garcia, which were that it would be better if it is put in to consideration if aspects of care such as sanitation and immunization become a part of the health care providing means, then that would clearly be an indicator towards saving lives rather than putting individuals at risk to catch a disease. As I did my research, I came across an article about how vaccines can be provided to children, but only under certain circumstances. One of the programs that I came across was the Vaccines for Children. VFC is a federally-funded nationwide program that provides free vaccines to doctors and clinics that serve low-income or uninsured children. To be eligible for the program, your child must be less than 19 years old, and must be Medicaid eligible, uninsured, underinsured, Native American or Alaskan native. If your child meets one or more of these criteria, you can get his or her vaccines from any VFC programenrolled doctor or clinic at no cost (ImmunizeForGood.com, 2017). DEBATING THE RIGHT TO HEALTH CARE SCENARIO 3 It is important for understanding the importance of a health care system among populations, regardless of the caste, how much they earn, or religion, etc. shouldn’t be an obstacle when attaining care from medical departments, like hospitals or other sort of clinics. I agree with Dr. Miller about how it should be ethical to provide care for everyone, but setting the parameters for this criterion would require a lot of work. Hopefully, in the future, health care becomes part of an individual’s life, and provides coverage, even minimal but to the point where it would not be a problem, towards where a person who is hand to mouth, must choose if he should go to the doctor, or should pay for his rent or other personal issues.
