Step 1 Do some research on the Affordable Care Act. You can start with the government sponsored website, Health and Human Services Website (Links to an external site.), but find an additional resource as well.
Step 2 After reading about payment sources in this week’s lesson, and conducting your research, address the following:
- Where does the Affordable Care Act fit into the overall U.S. health care payment system?
- How has it affected private insurance and Medicaid?
- Did it go far enough in providing access to health care for all U.S. citizens? Too far? Explain your position.
