Medical Costs & Healthcare

Your assignment is to develop a group report and presentation arranged by the topics below. See specific instruction for formatting and grading of the report and presentation below:

Statement – “According to National Health Expenditure Projections in 2015 the American people will spend approximately 3.2 trillion dollars on health care, and it is being projected that Americans will spend 4.5 trillion dollars on health care in 2019 and 5 trillion by 2022. The ACA curbs the rate of growth in healthcare spending, but it also ads additional spending. In all, without the ACA, spending would also be at about 5 trillion by 2022. Consider because of the aging population healthcare costs must raise but can the rise be less.”

Topic 4 Beyond the Affordable Healthcare Act, what has changed or is chancing to improve healthcare costs, the quality of healthcare, and the way healthcare is dispensed.

Addendum – Each person in your group should independently answer the following question in your report. We have discussed the economic concepts of costs vs. benefits, opportunity costs, scares resources, future value of costs. Apply those concepts to fixing the healthcare system. Research your answer, use statistics and details but apply your thoughts also. Be prepared to defend your statement in class.
