Visit the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation website, Archived KaiserEDU.org Tutorials. Review the tutorials: Economics and Global Health: The Basics, Health Insurance and Access to Health Care, and Measuring Health Care Quality. In your paper, address the following questions:
- What are the major drivers of the rise in health care spending? How will the ACA affect these areas?
- How can health care be made more affordable without limiting access to necessary care?
- What role should government play in controlling increases in the cost of care and the cost of health coverage? What different choices do state and federal policymakers have in containing costs?
- What is the responsibility of individuals in the cost of their care? Are health savings accounts and high deductible insurance policies an approach that should be expanded? What are the concerns for low-income individuals?
