Obamacare will enable 32 million more Americans to have health insurance. Despite this coverage, medical sociologists know that there are other barriers besides health insurance that make it difficult for patients to seek medical care. Describe 3 such barriers to seeking care. Design a program to eliminate these barriers.
Any ideas? I'm not sure where to start at all please help!!!

Will the number of primary care or other doctors increase suddenly to meet the needs of all these people?
What other problems can you think of?

I was thinking people who live in inner cities are unable to get transportation or are unable to afford care even with insurance

And don't forget people who live far, far away from towns and cities, such as in Wyoming and Montana. Even if they have insurance, would they be able to use it?

i was also thinking communication and finances (even with insurance it can be difficult to pay for health care)

Very true. Insurance doesn't pay for everything! It's not intended to.
