Lesson 10 - An Economic Analysis of Health Care Policy
The students discuss the strengths and weaknesses of health care in the United States. As "members" of the Surgeon General's Task Force on the Economics of Health Care Policies, they consider how the laws of supply and demand can be used to analyze and shape health care policy. They study four criteria for judging health care policies; then they apply these criteria in an examination of three general plans: Pay or Play, Tax Credits, and National Health Insurance. They draw conclusions, determining which plans accomplish which goals.
