Health Care Reform/ Integration and Reflection
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). President Donald Trump is now looking to “repeal and replace” the PPACA.
It is incumbent on us all to become as informed about health care reform as possible because it affects us, our family, and loved ones. Use the module readings and your own research to respond to the following questions:
- List and briefly describe 3 of the recommendations for health care reform from experts, interest groups, etc.
- Discuss how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) fits (or does not fit) with the recommendations.
