Controversies surrounding the development of the government’s role

  1. Discuss controversies surrounding the development of the government’s role in providing, financing, and
    regulating health insurance and health services. Include in your discussion the economic reasons for
    government intervention in a market-based health care system. Please be sure to incorporate the reasons
    identified in your text as well as any additional reasons you wish to provide. Provide a critique of these
    reasons.
  2. Discuss the structure, conduct, and performance of the pharmaceutical industry. How does its structure,
    conduct, and performance impact patients? Given the structure, conduct, and performance of the
    pharmaceutical industry, predict the responsiveness of the industry to a common disease as compared to a
    very rare disease. Assume both diseases have very similar impacts on patients.
  3. Some view the healthcare systems of other developed countries as reasonable models for the reform of the
    U.S. health care system. Choose one of the health care systems covered in chapter 14 of your text and
    describe it in some detail. Provide reasons why you consider it a workable or unworkable model for the United
    States.
