Advocates insist that health savings accounts are an [#permalink] New post 01 Nov 2009, 02:43
Advocates insist that health savings accounts are an efficient method to reduce medical expenses. However, widespread adoption of these accounts will soon undermine the public’s health. One reason for this is that most people will be reluctant to deplete their accounts to pay for regular preventive examinations, so that in many cases a serious illness will go undetected until it is far advanced. Another reason is that poor people, who will not be able to afford health savings accounts, will no longer receive vaccinations against infectious diseases.

The statements above, if true, most support which of the following?
a) Wealthy individuals will not be affected negatively by health savings accounts.
b) Private health insurance will no longer be available.
c) Most diseases are detected during regular preventive examinations.
d) Some people without health savings accounts are likely to contract infectious diseases.
e) The causal relationship between an individual’s health and that person’s medical care has been adequately
documented.

IMO "so that in many cases a serious illness will go undetected until .." doesn't mean "most diseases" go undiagnosed.It could be few diseases that are often detected in preventive examination...

The paragraph speaks about 'many serious illnesses' going undetected and not 'most' illness as C says. Hence C is not correct.

The paragraphs talks about health savings accounts and its +ve or -ve effect.

A)maybe true as rich ppl will not have to worry about the balance in their account but nothing written in argument about rich people.

B) out of scope as nothing written in argument

c)most diseases goes unnoticed is not an apt way to assert as nothing is given in argument that supports this option.

d)maybe true

e)out of scope

upon analysing IMO D is correct ans which can be asserted from question stem as it is must be ture type of ques no new info can be correct ans.

OA: D

This is an inference question, the correct answer choice will be based only on facts stated in the stimulus. We should not infer too much.

a) Wealthy individuals will not be affected negatively by health savings accounts. While the argument talks about poor people, it does not necessarily differentiate between average and wealthy - OUT OF SCOPE
b) Private health insurance will no longer be available. Never talks about private health insurance - OUT OF SCOPE
c) Most diseases are detected during regular preventive examinations. The argument says that if no preventive test are run, some serious illness will not be detected early enough, but we cannot infer with this information that most disease are detected during regular regular preventive examinations - TOO STRONG
d) Some people without health savings accounts are likely to contract infectious diseases. The argument states that poor people will not have a health savings account and will not get vaccinations against infectious diseases, therefore SOME people are likely to contract infectious diseases as they are not protected against it - CORRECT ANSWER
e) The causal relationship between an individual’s health and that person’s medical care has been adequately documented. Never refers to documentation of one's medical care - OUT OF SCOPE

IMO you're supposed to find a conclusion and you cannot deduce "C" from any of the premises in the text.

Is C wrong because of the difference between "many" and "most"? If yes, then can someone please explain the distinction?
