How might legislative and regulatory actions affect healthcare expenditures
: How might legislative and regulatory actions affect healthcare expenditures?
It may come as no surprise that the rising costs of healthcare from both a provider and consumer perspective, remain a major challenge in the U.S. healthcare system. While healthcare costs from a consumer perspective may have been temporarily alleviated with the implementation of the PPACA, providers still face many challenges when delivering effective and quality healthcare services to their patients.
For this Discussion, review the resources for the week. Consider how legislative and/or regulatory actions may affect healthcare expenditures for HSOs. Reflect on how legislation or regulatory actions may differ at the state and federal level.
Explain what additional legislative and/or regulatory actions might be taken to limit increases in healthcare expenditures at the state and federal level. Be specific and provide examples.
