Analysis of Global Health Care

Analysis of Global Health Care

Select one Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) country and answer the following questions:

1. Does health insurance coverage for the country you selected offer the gold standard of care? Do revenues used to pay for health care come from a single source or many? Is there rationing of healthcare services? If so, how does this compare to rationing in the U.S.?

2. To what extent do you think the crafting of the ACA relied on experiences of other countries? Does the country you selected possess healthcare policies that may have been influential? Should the U.S. adopt these healthcare policies? Why?

Required Readings:
