Source to Finance the U.S. Healthcare System
In two paragraphs, describe any public program that serves as a source to finance the U.S. healthcare system. Describe the specific policy and the program that occurred as a result of the public program and the intended target population. Application: Consider your readings on the challenges, debates and successes of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010. Using Figure 3, How a bill becomes a law, located in the Week 1 resources, and this weeks scholarly readings, select any area within the diagram to describe any issue(s) that may have occurred during or after the process of the ACA transforming from a bill to an actual law. For example, you can describe: ? How did the people influence the passage of this healthcare bill? (What evidence supports this?) ? Describe a specific state legislature that supported or opposed the bill? ? Describe the Committee in the legislative body who was responsible for reviewing the health care bills. ? Describe one debate or amendment to the ACA bill prior to its adoption into law. ? Were there any issues with the budgets associated with the ACA bill. ? Were there any public hearings during the Committee sessions? If so, provide a description. ? Describe any debates to overturn the ACA. Be sure to cite all sources in APA format. UMGC journal articles can also be used to support your discussion response this week.
