Understanding Stakeholders The readings these last several weeks highlighted the relationship between public and private insurance as well as among the branches of the government. These components and their associated stakeholders are part of a large system. Consider the U.S. healthcare “system.” At the strategic level (macro level), identify the stakeholders (including private and public entities) and their competing objectives. Be sure to include employers, employees, the government branches, and the private insurers. Prepare your assignment as an essay addressing the connection and competing areas of concern with each stakeholder. At a minimum, identify six major stakeholders and provide at least one paragraph discussing the prevailing objectives for each one. Your paper should be 2-3 pages in length, not including the title or references pages and conform to APA Requirements.

Which three areas of the current U.S. health care system would you add to the system you have chosen for the U.S.? Explain why.

When writing in this class, I ask that you use headings within your writings that correspond with the rubric that I am grading from. For example, if the Weekly Discussion has four sections to respond to, then please use these four headings in your post and put your responses under each heading.  Or if your paper has six rubric sections to answer about, then have six headings in your paper and put the information below these headings.

I have found that it makes it easier for the both of us and it improves my student’s grades exponentially.  Also, less is missed because you can see if you have completed each and every section of the rubric and I will know where to find your answers that correspond.

Support your answers with examples and research. Your responses should clarify your understanding of the topic. They should be your own—original and free from plagiarism. Follow APA guidelines for writing style, spelling and grammar, and citation of sources.  Cite your sources using the correct APA format on a separate page.

Answer must be less than 25% on turnitin!!!

Disparities in Health Care Distribution

It is estimated that over 46 million people do not have health insurance coverage in the United States. In addition, many more individuals are underinsured or have such high deductibles and co-pays that they do not even seek medical care. Given this information, the logical question that arises is, should health care coverage be provided to everyone?

“Moreover, Is health care a right or a privilege?” is one of the most debatable topics. What is your viewpoint? Support your answer with examples. There is an unequal distribution of health care system efforts in the U.S. Why do you think this is so, and what can be done about it? Justify your answers with appropriate research and reasoning and comment on the postings of at least two peers regarding why there is an unequal distribution of health care system efforts.
