1. The differences between the public and the private sectors give us insight into how difficult it is to control expenditures in the healthcare system. Controlling expenditures is widely discussed and provisions have been included in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Analyze what has worked in the past to control expenditures and what has not worked, and why or why not. What measures of the PPACA are intended to control healthcare costs, improve access to care, and improve quality of care. What do you feel will work and/or not work and why?
o Conduct basic research about the issue. Consider both current and historical information, as applicable.
o Reflect on the issues. While there may be a relatively straightforward answer or approach, consider the issues from different perspectives.
o Consider additional implications, impacts, etc. related to the issues.
