As discussed in previous modules, there is not a constitutional right to healthcare in the United States. Yet, according to the text, the United States spends almost $3 trillion on healthcare annually or 17.5% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In the absence of a constitutional right to healthcare, governmental healthcare financing has evolved. Three areas of governmental insurance programs that have developed to provide access to healthcare are listed below:

Healthcare Finance Model A: Medicare

Healthcare Finance Model B: Medicaid

Healthcare Finance Model C: Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA)


  1. For this discussion board, the professor will randomly assign you to one of the healthcare financing models. In your initial post, provide the following information about your assigned model, e.g., Medicare, Medicaid, or ACA. In your description:
    1. Describe the mission of the model, e.g., target population. Discuss the historical events (if any) that precipitated its creation. Include the governmental agency responsible for its oversight and regulations.
    2. Provide an analysis which includes one advantage and one disadvantage of your assigned healthcare financing model.
    3. Provide an example of how the model has impacted access to healthcare services offered to patients

Follow Up Post

After you post your initial post, reply to two or more of your classmates’ postings (three additional postings are needed for an “Exemplary” grade). Respond to the two other healthcare financing models you were not assigned. Reply to classmates by:

  • Asking questions about the information in their post.
  • Responding to the usefulness of your classmates’ post material to Human Service practice.
  • Providing additional analysis of how the models have/have not increased access to healthcare.
  • Providing information on how programs such as the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) or Tri Care supplement any of the healthcare financing model.
  • Offering one additional primary/secondary reference (cited) that provides support for the material that is addressed by your classmate. (A different reference must be used for each reply to classmates. The reference must be cited using APA format.) The textbook CANNOT be used as a reference for your reply posts.
