MAN6974: HCMBA Abstract, Problem Statement, & Annotated Bibliography
In 2010, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed as a measure to regulate healthcare by providing more coverage to Americans. It provided an estimated 31 million previously uninsured
Americans access to healthcare; however, the law failed to control spending. Many of the 2020 presidential candidates are proposing a single payer healthcare system, but this option is facing resistance from citizens, health insurance companies, and government agencies. This healthcare policy analysis will calculate the impact that a single payer healthcare system will have on stakeholders including citizens, hospitals, physicians, payors, and policy makers. It will evaluate the economic impact of a single payer system and include evidence-based research to analyze the possibilities for success or failure. It will conclude with a recommendation about transitioning to a universal healthcare system feasible.
