  1. PBN Health Care Savings Plan FAQS

  2. The health of people without a healthcare coverage is worse than it would otherwise be if they had a healthcare plan www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  3. If we do nothing, health care costs will in 3 – 5 years. DOUBLE www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  4. What are the health consequences for the roughly 30 million (one out of every seven) working-age Americans who do not have healthcare coverage? www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  5. If they were to gain healthcare coverage, would their health improve? www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  6. In 1999, almost 60% of the public believed that people without healthcare coverage get the health care they need from doctors and hospitals. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  7. The reality is that those without healthcare coverage are much more likely to go without care than are people who have healthcare coverage. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  8. Providing health care to uninsured adults would result in improved health, including life expectancy. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  9. Increasing healthcare coverage would especially improve the health of those in the poorest health and most disadvantaged in terms of access to care and thus would likely reduce health disparities among racial and ethnic groups. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  10. Healthcare coverage is associated with better health outcomes. It is also associated with having a regular source of care and with greater and more appropriate use of health services. These factors improve the likelihood of disease screening and early detection, the management of chronic illness, and the effective treatment of acute conditions. The ultimate result is improved health outcomes. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  11. Healthcare is most likely to improve health outcomes if it is continuous and links people to appropriate health care. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  12. Increased healthcare coverage would likely reduce disparities in morbidity and mortality among ethnic groups. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  13. Adults without healthcare coverage, living with chronic diseases, are less likely to receive appropriate care to manage their health conditions than are those who have coverage. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  14. Having health coverage is associated with better health outcomes across a range of preventive, chronic, and acute care services. People without a healthcare plan die sooner and experience greater declines in health status over time than do those with continuous coverage. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  15. Adults with chronic conditions and those in late middle age stand to benefit the most from a healthcare savings plan in terms of improved health outcomes because of their high probability of needing health care services. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  16. Healthcare coverage that affords access to providers and includes preventive and screening services, and outpatient prescription drugs, is more likely to facilitate the receipt of appropriate care. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255

  17. Broad-based healthcare strategies across the entire uninsured population would be more likely to produce these benefits than would “rescue” programs aimed only at the seriously ill. www.pbahp.com 800.372.0255
