In 2010, the United States passed landmark health care legislation when President Obama?s health care plan passed in the U.S. Congress. However, despite its promise to provide health care coverage for a number of groups previously unable to obtain coverage, many Americans are dissatisfied with the components of the plan.

? Thinking in terms of the administrator and third-party payer perspectives, answer the following:
o What do you feel are the biggest weaknesses of the health care plan, and why?
o Be sure to provide 2?3 weaknesses for each group (i.e. providers and patients), and explain your rationale for choosing each by supporting your thoughts with properly cited references.

Part 2:
Discussion Board

Assignment: 7 paragraphs with a Reference page, (with running head, intro, body & conclusion) using APA Style; avoid plagiarism.


Although preventative services such as routine well-care visits and immunizations have often shown to be beneficial in terms of preventing future, more expensive, health care encounters, not all insurance plans offer reimbursement for such things. In addition, health care policies have only recently begun to recognize the “worth” of funding prevention-related services.

? Why do you feel that funding preventative health care services has taken so long to become a major component of health plans?
? What do you think will need to happen to change the prevailing mindset of funding health care services reactively versus proactively from a third-party payer’s and an administrator?s perspective? Why?

Part 1 and Part 2 are two separate papers including a reference page for each.
As a general rule, no assignment may contain more than 20% in direct quotes from the resources. These passages need to be written in your own words. More than 20% of quotes in any paper or discussion board assignment demonstrates a lack of original thinking and critical analysis skills and will be marked down substantially.
