A) Medicare and Medicaid dollars.
B) patients rights.
C) equal distribution of health care.
D) nurse salaries.
Answer:
C) equal distribution of health care.

Explanation:

The economics of health care include the equal distribution of health care services so everyone may be served when services are needed. Medicare and Medicaid, patients rights, and nurse salaries do not factor into the economics of health care; they are only parts of the health care system.

Q2

A student asks the instructor about health care economics. The instructor knows the student understands when the student states which of the following?

Multiple Choice

A) The elderly population uses most of the health care services.
B) Everyone should have health insurance to obtain services.
C) Health care dollars should be partitioned by the government.
D) Resources will be needed to serve health care issues.
Answer:
D) Resources will be needed to serve health care issues.

Explanation:

Every health care issue needs resources to bring it to fruition. Without the resources, the health care issue would not be served. The elderly are a large part of the population, but that does not change the economics of health care. Everyone does not have health insurance, so that statement would not enter into health care economics. Last, all health care dollars are not partitioned by the government; third party payers exist.

Multiple Choice

A) The US charges money from the private sector only.
B) US health care is funded from private organizations.
C) The US health care system is not entirely government funded.
D) The US health care treats the older person first.
Answer:
C) The US health care system is not entirely government funded.

Explanation:

Other countries fund the health care system so that every citizen may have health care. In addition they provide the option that citizens may purchase private health care too. The US has a combination of private companies and government agencies funding health care, so money is not coming from just the private sector. The older person in the population receives care according to the insurance coverage they have, but the care is not before anyone else.
