All groups are to use the format below to prepare the brief and the power point presentation. Please ensure to include the appropriate subtitles in the presentation and brief. Lastly, please see the Health Insurance Project Guidelines sheet for more detailed information.

I: Assessment (15 Points)

Collective effort

In the background section all groups are to provide an overall and detailed health care (and/or public health) assessment (please see the Health Insurance Project Guidelines sheet for more detailed information).  The detailed health care assessment should focus on two or three major (overall) problems that the group believes is affecting the U.S. Public Health and Health Care Delivery System.

II: Policy Development & Assurance (35 Points per Individual)

One problem for each student in the group. Points are assessed per section.

Additional Information:

 

**Your solution/proposed plan must be different than the plans already in existence.

 

  • Given the data as presented, our solution is to………………..

 

 

## Cost Estimation:  In health care, we operate in an environment of budgetary constraints and constrained optimization.  Please identify how much these solutions will cost and how the group came to that determination. Please see below for an example.

e.g. Problem COPD Solution: Access to Primary Care:

Due to your research, your group has identified that COPD is one of rapidly increasing causes of hospitalizations in the United States. The increase in hospitalizations due to COPD is associated with the lack of access to primary care. As a result your group want to provide 2 primary care visits (with no cost share) to all American citizens. There are approximately 300 million people who will qualify. Given the purchasing power of the government, the group estimates the cost of a primary care visit at approximately $20.

 

The price of your plan will be approximately $12,000,000,000. Do you believe that this is affordable? (Yes /No and why?).

If yes, what is the percent cost increase to the current health care delivery model? What benefits will this cost increase have to the American healthcare consumer? 

If no, the price of the plan can be reduced if you follow strategies such as direct negotiations with health providers/suppliers, allowing only a narrow network of health providers, and increasing the cost share (e.g. co pays) of the patients.

There will be policy (e.g. interest group) implications associated with any type of implementation. The group must identify what are the potential policy implications (interest group conflicts).

The purpose of this part of the project is focus on the costs (e.g. monetary, political, and social) associated with major plan proposals.

++ Interest Group Section: For each solution, please also identify at least two interest groups (one for and one against) affected by the proposed policy. Please also identify the potential barriers the proposed plan will face and strategies to overcome these barriers. (Please provide at least one potential barrier (and one strategy to overcome the barriers) per solution

 

 

 

 

+++Assurance Section: The purpose of this section is to identify if the proposed plan (solution) works as the way it was intended. Please address the following questions:

 

  • What potential outcomes do you plan to achieve? Why?

 

  • What methods will you use to evaluate the outcome (or the progression towards the outcome). Why? Be very specific with your evaluation mechanism.

 

e.g. Solution: Access to Primary Care to deal with growing COPD problems: Assurance mechanism: Decrease in hospitalizations associated with COPD:  After 5 years, we will analysis the data to see if there has been a decrease in hospitalizations associated with COPD.
