Health Care Drivers for Increased Medicaid Funding Research Paper

… Health Care Drivers for increased Medicaid funding: A study in the United States.

The Per capita health care spending has increased to about 2,814 in 1990 to more than $7,000 today. With such increased amounts, it is obvious that everyone in America would not be able to afford such so much. This led to the creation and the need for a program like Medicaid. Medicaid is basically a national health insurance program for people with low income. In the year 2000, about 42.7 million people received Medicaid. (Einhorn 25) This shows that Medicaid itself was a program that was a crucial factor in the medical necessities of a lot of people. The demand for health care is still expected to increase thus making an even…. [read more]

Privatization of Healthcare Services Dissertation

… With this reality check and overall change in approach permissions were granted to individuals for setting up and running private hospitals with government regulations. This revived the private sector and many public institutions were privatized over night. Both types of institutions private and public still co-exist in China but number of private hospitals and clinics remain far greater. In most cities the private hospitals and clinics privatized at an incredible speed going from 40% of all institutions in 1998 to 56% private institutions in 2005, this rapid privatization led to establishment of un-registered private entities (Black Clinics). Earlier to 1980 there were four groups who were allowed to setup and run private practice; First group was individual practitioners with a license prior to the Cultural…. [read more]

Healthcare and Drug Costs Essay

… Ultimately, Americans are spending too much on drug costs, which limit their ability to save, invest, and spend such funds in other areas that would be more beneficial for the economy. Many Americans do not price shop for medications, which leads to "unnecessary spending" that drains their wallets (Johnson, 2009). This wasteful spending includes federal government spending in Medicare and Medicaid programs, which "that limits how much money the federal government and businesses have to invest in solving the energy problem, developing products that can be sold to other countries, creating technology that can bring medical breakthroughs, building infrastructure and more" (Johnson, 2009).

Even worse, many Americans find themselves addicted to prescription drugs which also has a negative impact on how healthcare impacts the economy.…. [read more]

National Health Care Spending Essay

… Further, the government could seek to increase tax collection without necessarily increasing the tax burden. In my own opinion, this can be done through a number of approaches including sealing off unfair tax loopholes. This can be reinforced by the identification of new revenue streams so that sources of funds to finance the needs identified are in one way or the other stabilized.


In conclusion, it can be noted that when it comes to the national health care spending, there are a number of issues that need to be addressed urgently. This includes challenges the nation faces as far as financing the growing cost of health care is concerned going forward. This is in addition to the existing need to improve health care quality….

Varying Differences of Universal Health Care Capstone Project

… ¶ … Universal Health Care

This project explores several published articles that report on results from research conducted on Online (Internet) and Offline (non-internet) on the benefits of Americans receiving/participating in Universal Health Care (UHC). The articles, however, vary in their definition in implementing UHC. The Democratic government suggests that UHC is more effective than Private Insurance Carriers (PIC), and advocate the use of supplementary coverage for the millions of previously and otherwise rejected un-insurable Americans. Other articles define UHC differently and therefore, offer different results?

This project examines UHC research in relation to several other research articles to suggest that all areas of UHC should be studied in order to fully understand how UHC will influence (impact) and better the lives of all Americans,…. [read more]

Rural vs. Urban Health Care Disparities Dissertation

… Health Care Disparity in Maryland

Context of the Problem

Unsettling Disparities Occur

Approximately 1,600,000 individuals who live in Maryland either do not have access to healthcare as they cannot afford insurance and/or are underinsured.

In "Health care reform: a vital issue for Maryland's nurses," Anne S. Kasper and Leni Preston (2008) stress this unsettling fact, as they point out that Maryland ranks number 24 in the United States in the number of uninsured residents. Fifteen percent of Maryland's population, almost 800,000 people, in fact, is not insured. The significance of the fact relating to those who do not have access to healthcare, Kasper, and Preston (2008) assert, increases as this magnificent number of individuals without access to healthcare does….

Medical Ethics of Providing Healthcare to Illegal Term Paper

… Medical Ethics of Providing Healthcare to Illegal Immigrants

Providing healthcare for illegal immigrants has become a major topic of ethical debate and an issue of increasing financial concern in the United States.

Religious institutions are deeply embedded in both health care delivery and health care lobbying, and each activity is consciously driven by understandings of the imperatives of Christian social thought and by institutional missions formulated with the intention of realizing commitments that flow from Christian faith (Cochran pp). Since health care delivery is shaped by public policies at the federal and state levels, religious leaders, theologians, and institutions such as hospitals have been forced to reflect on and to deliver health care within a context powerfully political and public (Cochran pp).

Reputed Health Crisis Term Paper

… Business Perspectives; 9/22/2002; Wright, Douglas

Despite ongoing concerns about TennCare's cost and success, the program has provided health care coverage to Tennesseans at a reasonable price while benefiting the overall health care economy of Tennessee. This article examines some of the questions commonly asked about the TennCare program.

Why Was TennCare Created?

TennCare was created to help solve the state's budget problems. In 1993, Tennessee faced a budget shortfall of over 250 million state dollars caused largely by increases in Medicaid spending. State officials were forced to choose between massive cuts in spending or large increases in taxes. Cutting Medicaid spending would have resulted in the loss of about two federal matching dollars for every state dollar cut, a loss of hundreds of millions of…. [read more]

Affordable Care Act Health Care Reform Capstone Project

… Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Health Care Act

The hospital industry is comprised of many different sectors including, but not limited to, non-profit and for-profit hospitals, safety net hospitals and teaching hospitals among others. Because the sectors are so varied, it is surmised that the Affordable Care Act, which was enacted in March of 2010, will have different effects for each different sector and individual hospital. There are certain hospitals that have always given either low-cost or no-cost health care to uninsured patients and it is posited that these hospitals will gain the most in relation to the uncompensated care that they have given patients. It is believed that there are substantial provisions within the Affordable Care Act that will have a beneficial effect on…. [read more]

Electronic Health Records EHR Essay

… Electronic Health Records

Impact Illegal Aliens on the Healthcare System Term Paper

… ¶ … Illegal Aliens on the Healthcare System

Running Page: INSULT to INJURY

Illegal Aliens' Impact on U.S. Health Care System

The chronic problem of illegal immigrants' sharing costly, abundant and expert healthcare services system with citizens has mounted through the years. One reason is the lack of effective legislations to modify immigration laws. Another is a duality of federal policy, which vows to serve the interests of citizens and which declares an "open-door" policy to the world. California and Maryland register large populations of illegal aliens who not only share their taxpayers' social benefits. They can also secure what, in some cases, is not available even to these taxpayers themselves. A thorough study on the current situation and past efforts is warranted and more…. [read more]

Health Care Reform Term Paper

… The issue could prove to be precedent setting because it would be the first time that law would prohibit people from using tax credit funds for a legal medical procedure.

The issue has created extensive debate because the right to choose abortion is protected by law. New laws related to the proposed health reform could eventually require women to pay out of pocket for expenses related abortion. This, in turn may have a particularly negative affect on vulnerable women, such as younger women with fewer economic resources, low-income individuals, or victims of domestic violence. In all of these cases, a woman may have a compelling reason to seek an abortion based on a lack of resources or concerns about raising a child in a violent…. [read more]

Arroyo Fresco Health Care Case Essay

… Healthcare Management Project

Arroyo Fresco (AF) faces a challenging operating environment. The organization has, as part of its longstanding mission, a mandate to serve the entire community, regardless of ability to pay. This bumps AF up against fiscal constraints, including flat funding levels from different governments. AF management has only minimal control over the funding levels, if any at all, so it has to manage profitability in other ways. Its business can be broken down into segments that are unlikely to generate profits -- the poor, rural areas -- and areas that are more likely to be profitable, such as the Lake Havasu corridor. Management also has to look at the cost side of the business. Understanding the drivers of excellent performance will be critical.…. [read more]

Roche Corporation Research Paper

… Roche Corporation is a global developer and marketer of medicines and diagnostic equipment to the health care industry. Based on Switzerland, Roche operates around the world, with the revenue emphasis on developed markets. The company has three main lines of business -- pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and products for researchers. The company is therefore subject to a variety of demand influencers in its many different markets. Health care is one of the most highly regulated industries in the world, and the vastly different systems create different supply and demand dynamics to which Roche must adapt. This paper will analyze the dynamics that affect Roche and the company's reactions to those dynamics. Although Roche breaks down their world scope into six unique geographies, the emphasis for this discussion…. [read more]

No-Fault Compensation in UK Medical Malpractice Thesis

… 2 The survey tried to quantify the frequency and/or severity of adverse effects through a population sampling experienced as a result of their medical treatment. The respondent sample consisted of 3638 men and 4568 women, or a total population of 8,206.

395, or 4.8% (4.8 in every 100) patients felt that they had suffered some illness, injury or impairment, which directly resulted from their medical treatment or care. This figure is slightly higher than the estimates derived using the methodology from the Harvard Medical Malpractice Study, which estimated that 3.7 in every 100 patients suffered "adverse effect." The report noted that the proportion responding "positively declined with increasing age and was inversely associated with social grade." Further, the report stated, "there was…. [read more]

Veterans and Retirees Is Government Research Paper

… $38.9 billion is estimated to be received in FY 08 rather than $36.9 billion.

The 2006-2011 strategic plans for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) outline the government's commitment to veterans. A goal of the VA is to "deliver world-class service to veterans and their families through effective communication and management of people, technology, business processes, and financial resources" (Department of Veterans Affair, October, 2006).

The VA had significant quality issues until Dr. Kenneth Kizer was appointed Under Secretary for Health in 1994. Dr. Kizer "decentralized the VA's cumbersome health bureaucracy and held original mangers more accountable. Patients records were transferred to a system-wide computer network" (Waller, 2006). The VA has become a healthcar model (Longman, 2005; Waller, 2006).

In 2007, the VA received a…. [read more]

… ¶ … Forces Analysis

WellPoint is subject to impacts from many different environmental factors. The health care coverage industry is not considered to be cyclical, but rather subject to several other key demand drivers.

That said, there are a few ways in which macroeconomic factors can affect WellPoint. One is that the overall health of the economy affects the ability of corporations, especially small businesses to…. [read more]

Charting the Course: Planning for Life after College

It has frequently been said that the end of college is not an end at all, but is rather the beginning of life's journey. Because life is a journey rather than a race, it is important to make some plans ahead of time so the path is known and the destination understood to the extent possible in advance. When most people set out on a journey to destinations unknown, they usually secure a map ahead of time to avoid getting lost. Likewise, a map of an individual's life journey can help a person stay on course and avoid the pitfalls that await the unwary along life's roads; however, in some cases, there is no real….

Public Administration: Presenting for the Future Chapter

… A third concern is that by reorganizing originally-independent agencies into two large bureaus, the government impeded on their ineffective functioning, particularly because these agencies have unique missions. The INS, for instance, was merged into the ICE, yet its mission bears almost nothing in common with the orientation and priorities of the latter. As a matter of fact, prior to the reorganization, the INS was under the Department of Justice, whereas Customs was under the Treasury. Reorganization, therefore, created functional dysfunctions that have impeded on the DHs' successful implementations of illegal immigration reforms.

Human resource departments have been encouraged to beef up their employee verification systems as a way of ensuring that they do not recruit illegal aliens (Graham, 2012). The Immigration Reform…. [read more]
