Assignment Health Care Policy MSN-FNP
The purpose of this assignment is to familiarize students with health reform strategies adopted by states.
Students will select a state health policy reform innovation and describe the rationale, how it was adopted (e.g., federal waivers, passage by the state legislature), the funding structure, and (to the extent statistical data are available) its impact.
Students should summarize their findings in a 1-2 page, single-spaced memo.
The sample memo attached. A memo is required, see the attached sample.
A few examples of state innovations include Vermont’s single-payer system, Massachusetts’ health reforms and Kentucky’s Medicaid healthcare program (none of these can be used).
Please see attached rubric.
