Obamacare and Its Effect on Your Decision to Attend ORT
Today Obamacare was upheld by the Supreme Court in a 5-4 vote. The bill, dubbed Obamacare but actually titled the Affordable Care Act, was created by the President in order to try and restore health care as a basic cornerstone of middle-class security in America.
Thanks to the new law, over 33 million more Americans will be able to afford health care and gain coverage- many for the first time. The bill provides security to working families and helps small businesses afford to cover their employees. Once the law is completely set in the foundation of American government, about 95% of American citizens under the age of sixty-five will be able to afford health insurance.
What this means for the medical industry is that more jobs will be created and more positions needed to serve the demand of the American people. More doctors, more nurses, more of every position required in hospitals and doctors’ offices. And by the year 2020, 80% of those jobs will require postsecondary education.
ORT offers a variety of platforms to help you get a job in the medical industry, including three diploma programs and even one degree program. The degree program exists for Medical Office Management; while the diploma programs are placed in order to help students become Medical Office Specialists, Pharmacy Technicians, or Medical Assistants. With the changes occurring in the economy and Obamacare increasing the need for educated medical professionals, ORT is a better decision than ever for many young Americans.
