Cost of Health Care

Our health, or the absence of such, can be very expensive. Many vulnerable populations simply do not have private funds available to pay for their care.  Relating your research to individuals with mental conditions, select a mental illness of your choice and discuss your response to the following questions:

  • What public financing resources are available to individuals with this particular mental condition?
  • What are the eligibility requirements and restrictions to receive these funds?
  • What happens if eligibility standards/requirements are not met by those with this illness?
  • Research and discuss two methods of alternative funding for care for this group. What are the benefits and limitations of the methods you discussed?

Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by a minimum of two scholarly sources beyond your course text.  Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
