LP05 Assignment: Medicaid and HMO Paper
Review the following video: Medicaid and HMOs Video.
• Assignment: Should Medicaid and HMOs join forces?
• Write a 2 – 3 page paper in what you find out about whether or not the HMO’s representative claims were correct. Does an HMO, enrolling Medicaid patients promise; one, cost efficiency and two improvements in quality of care? One site you can get started is The National Bureau of Economic Research. There are many other sites you can look at to get data about this. So that’s your assignment. Good idea? Bad idea and why? Back it up with some good data. That’s all there is to it. Good Luck!”
• Would the state save money by enrolling members in an HMO? How so?
• What would happen to the quality of care? Give possible examples. Cite your references.
The paper should be 2 to 3 pages in length. The paper is due by Sunday midnight.
