Should the state provide free health care to homeless people?

Date

Homeless people exist in tremendous amounts in the whole world. Only in the United States, on average, 550,000 people are homeless. Moreover, these include the tens  of thousands of children and some chronically ill people. These people are living in the streets or a car. Furthermore, few of them hopping between the friends or relative home or stay in the shelter. The main factor that leads to homelessness is instability.

It is the responsibility of the government to offer facilities to such needy people. It includes not only the food but also the health care services.

Now the question arises of what type of people are suffering from homelessness. These include military veterans, substance abuse or people having a mental illness, and women suffered from domestic violence, unemployed individuals, and families with a meager income. Such individuals have financial problems.

Health condition and homelessness

Because of lack of stable housing, people stay without homes and start suffering from various health issues. They may face both physical and mental health conditions. Furthermore, medical diseases like cancer, if  occur, is not possible to treat without assistance.  Moreover, mental health or substance abuse issues also lead to bad health conditions and need heavy finance to treat such matters. Therefore, people may have to lose their home by giving it to rent or mortgage to get treatment.

Perhaps, homelessness makes a person sick and can lead to stressful conditions. This is because people do not meet basic needs like proper sanitation, healthy foods, and uncrowded living environments. Because of this, people likely to suffer from such conditions. Furthermore, health conditions like HIV, high BP, or diabetes also occur in similar situations.

Responsibilities of state for such people

The government must consider such people and help them to seek medical care. Moreover, people who can afford and participate in charity programs must care for such individuals living on streets without shelter.

Several departments can help in getting treatment for homelessness. These include local health care programs, mobile care units, as well as nonprofit safety-net clinics. These can help the community to get health care. Moreover, the government must implement such programs to provide health care to individuals suffering from homelessness.

The state government can also start the program on an individual basis. These must include services at the local, state, and federal levels. The government can implement such programs like

  • Encouraging family to volunteer at local homeless shelters
  • Donate to government organizations running the special clinics for the homeless people.
  • Provide facility of free health care assistance and medications.

Final thoughts

State governments are responsible for taking care of the health of people living without homes. They should devise such methods procedures so individuals can get medicare free of cost and get a regular checkup to stay healthy. This will help them start struggling to earn wages and rent the house to come out of the dire situation. In this way, they will have shelter, better heath care and better lifestyle.
