Discussion Question 1

Explain the role and authority of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) in developing preventive health measures in the United States. Discuss the cost savings that could be achieved by following one specific recommendation found at the USPSTF link.                   

Discussion Question 2

Determine the average daily cost of nursing home care in your state. Discuss the funding options (public and private) that exist to pay for long-term care. What policy and financing recommendations would you make to ensure that long-term care is available for everyone who needs the services in the United States?                   

Discussion Question 3

The rationing of healthcare services can be accomplished by governmental rationing or by allowing those who can afford the services to purchase the services. If you were the chairperson of a medical ethics committee faced with the decision concerning which patient would receive a heart transplant, what decision would you make and what justification would you give to the families of each of the patients for making that decision?

  • Patient 1: A 76-year-old nonsmoker with good pulmonary and renal function is a good candidate for a heart transplant and his life expectancy without the transplant is one month. The patient has the resources to pay cash for the transplant procedure and follow-up care.
  • Patient 2: A 46-year-old unemployed auto worker with a history of alcohol use and smoking suffered a heart attack and will die within one month if he does not receive a heart transplant. The patient does not have health insurance nor does he have the resources to pay for the procedure.

 

Discussion Question 4

One way for states to reduce Medicaid spending on nursing home care is to control the number of facilities that are granted a license to operate within the state and limit the funds available for in-home care. “What are the [public and private] consequences of state policies that limit Medicaid expenditures by restricting the availability of nursing home beds, paying nursing homes low rates, and providing very limited in-home services to those eligible for Medicaid” (Feldstein, 2011, p. 150)? Feldstein, P. J. (2011).
