HEALTH 50 M 4

PART 1

The health care reform debate is not a new one. The plan for a national system was a Hillary Clinton platform when she was First Lady. In 2010, President Barrack Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). In 2018, President Donald Trump looked to “repeal and replace” the PPACA. The most recent election of President Joe Biden in 2021 has brought about new changes to the PPACA to broaden and increase coverage for all Americans. Executive orders signed by President Biden focused specifically on reforming Medicaid and expanding the Affordable Care Act (ACA). 

It is important that health care leaders remain informed of health care reform as it affects patient rules of engagement, coverage of insurance plans, and guidelines surrounding public programs. Use the module readings and your own research to respond to the following questions:

Case Assignment 

1. Describe two changes (for each program) in the Medicaid program and The Affordable Care Act that were discussed in the executive order signed by President Biden on February 3, 2021.

2. List and briefly describe three recommendations for health care reform from experts, interest groups, etc.

3. Discuss if the changes that have been made to the ACA and Medicaid programs align with the recommendations of experts and interest groups. 

Length: Submit a 3-page paper, not including the cover page and the reference list.

PART 2

The overall goal of the Session Long Project is to examine health care delivery in the United States. Read the article “Remaking the American health care system: A positive reflection on the Affordable Care Act with emphasis on mental health care” by Ogundipe, Alam, Gazula, Olagbemiro, Osiezagha, Rahn, and Richie (2015). After reading the article and conducting your own research, please respond to the following questions. 

1. What is the intended purpose of the PPACA that was signed into law in 2010? Will it meet its intended purpose based on what you’ve read in this article and from your own research on the topic?

2. Has PPACA met its intended purpose based on what you’ve read in this article and from your own research on the topic?

3. What do the authors state are the issues with the quality of care being provided?

4. Identify and discuss the four mechanisms that have been implemented by the PPACA.
