Discussion: Stakeholders in Health Care Policy

There are many stakeholders involved in health care policy issues, and they represent a wide variety of interests and perspectives. The health care industry employs many people. Though all stakeholders may share the goal of optimum individual and societal health and well-being, it is important to note that stakeholders’ financial interests may influence decision-making.

For this Discussion, review this week’s resources. Consider the impact of health care policy’s evolution on Medicaid and Medicare programs. Then, think about a specific Medicaid policy in your state (Florida), that should be amended, and reflect on how you would amend it and why. Finally, research the stakeholders involved in Medicaid and Medicare health care policy in your state and consider the role of these stakeholders in policy development for this issue.

Post by Day 3 an explanation of how the evolution of health care policy has influenced programs such as Medicaid and Medicare. Then, describe a specific Medicaid policy in your state that should be amended, and explain how you would amend it and why. Finally, describe the stakeholders involved in the Medicaid and Medicare health care policy in your state (Florida), and explain the role of these stakeholders in policy development for this issue.

Week 9: Health Care Policy

The requirements, services, and benefits associated with federal programs vary from one geographic area to another. Such variation may result in consumer confusion and difficulties in understanding and accessing needed health care services.

This week, you examine the impact of health care policy’s evolution on Medicaid and Medicare programs, analyze your state’s Medicaid policies, and determine the stakeholders in health care policy development for your state. You also identify individuals who represent “at-risk,” marginalized, or oppressed populations and investigate the impact of these policies from the perspective of select populations.
