Health is always considered as a best friend of human beings. A human can work very efficiently if he or she is healthy. And it is the responsibility of a federal government to provide the best health care and other benefits for eligible citizens. There are six different types of health care services provided by the government. One-third of the American citizens are taking advantage of these programs. Apart from six regular health care schemes, stimulus checks were also provided by the administration as additional support during the national crisis. The six major government health care programs are as follows:

Medicare: It is the most basic health care scheme for the people. Anybody aged over 65 years with an eligible social security number, automatically falls under this category.

Medicaid: It is a joint venture of federal and state governments. Nearly 42 million people are taking advantage of this scheme. The scheme is mainly for poor citizens. Asthma, diabetes, neurological disorders, high blood pressure, mental illness, and substance abuse are some of the diseases that are covered under Medicaid.

The State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP): This program was launched in 1997 for poor children below 18 years of age. Nearly 50% of all the kids in the USA are covered under this scheme.

The Department of Defense TRICARE and TRICARE for Life programs (DOD TRICARE): This program operates in two manners. Active-duty military personnel, their dependents, retirees under the age of 65 are the main beneficiaries of this scheme. Recently a new section was added to this scheme. The second edition covers the bills of prescribed drugs and medication. It is further divided into three sections, TRICARE Prime, TRICARE Extra, TRICARE Standard. The benefits of these schemes are unlimited. Most young kids of military personnel are getting benefits from this scheme.

The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) program: Was launched in 1946 to take care of the veterans, who serve the nation. There are 10% veterans in the public. It helps US veterans with chronic disease or drug abuse. But only 19% of the veterans are fully eligible for this facility. They have a separate hospital for this scheme.

The Indian Health Service (IHS) program: This program is managed by the Department of Health and Human Services. This program was launched for 1.4 million American Indians and Alaska Natives tribes living in America. There are nearly 557 tribes are present in the USA.

I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops.
