Answer the following questions on Health Care Financing:
- Name one (1) way each of the following has affected the costs of health care in the US?
§ The health insurance industry
§ Advances in medical care technology
§ Changes in U.S. demographics
§ Government support for health care
§ Consumer expectations
- If we accept the premises that resources available to meet the costs of health care are finite, and that continuing to increase dollars allocated for health care expenses carries “opportunity costs“ for the nation and society, discuss your position on the following: As a national policy should we allocate a set level of resources and apply them to achieving “the greatest good for the greatest number” (necessarily leaving some out) OR should we adopt the individualist approach of “those who can pay get, those who can’t pay, don’t?”
