And from whence does that "right" come?
Mainly from a larger/more powerful/more determined group's ability to force a smaller, less powerful/less determined group to provide it.
This is done via government and the force is via guns or at least via implicit force of guns.
Do I have a right to your TV? Would it be morally acceptable to come to your house with a gun and take it?
What is the difference between taking under cover of government and as an individual?
Your "right" to healthcare exists only because you can take it by force.
Whether this is a good thing or not is another question. Whether it is morally justifiable or not is another question.
You first need to be clear about how you obtain this "right" as you call it.
If you have not done so, read Bastiat's "The Law" which is about this subject.
