Financing Health Care in the 21st Century

Cost Containment: the United States government

Unlike virtually every other industrialized country in the world, the United States provides medical care to its citizens through the private workplace, primarily financed through private insurance. Expenditures on such public programs as Medicare and Medicaid have increased the government's portion of the nation's healthcare burden since orld ar II. Still, the majority of health care funding still comes from the private sector. This has left millions uninsured whom are too 'wealthy' or young to qualify for public assistance, but do not work at places of employment where they receive benefits. It has also left many Americans underinsured for their healthcare needs. (News batch, 2003)

Although the United States spends far more on health care in actual dollars and as a percentage of the GDP than any other country of the world, the U.S. ranks low among…… [Read More]

Health Schieber Et Al 2007

Words: 301 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 97165571

Debt relief and other means to alleviate financial burdens is but one method of helping the humanitarian crises and epidemics worldwide.

The chieber et al. (2007) study is not an empirical study but rather one that provides a meta-analysis of already existing data. They draw from a number of difference sources including renowned economists and political philosophers to provide a number of possible solutions that can be embraced and tailored for different situations. Because each region of the globe exhibits unique health care problems and unique cultural and financial concerns, such a broad and multi-disciplinary perspective is necessary. Moreover, the authors are unbiased and straightforward in their analysis of global healthcare needs. They simply point out the practicalities of improving global health: framing it in ways that might genuinely…… [Read More]

Schieber, et al. (2007) comment on the disproportionate access to health care among the world's poor population. Citing statistics about the prevalence of disease in developing and Third World nations, the authors note that less than two percent of global health care spending is devoted to helping those most in need. Solving the problem will require a long-term commitment to alleviating the financial burdens already placed on poor countries, and on shifting focus toward a more caring and ethical system.

One of the primary motivators to develop a more caring point-of-view is pure economics. The health care problems posed by the world's poor becomes a great burden to local, national, regional, and global economics. Improving health care would therefore create a more viable global economy, boosting local markets and improving prospects for new market development. Schieber et al. (2007), in their article "Financing Global Health: Mission Unaccomplished," outline several possible reform scenarios that can be put into place immediately, if they are supported by a substantial number of First World nations. Debt relief and other means to alleviate financial burdens is but one method of helping the humanitarian crises and epidemics worldwide.

Funds One of the Most Important Decisions

Words: 1059 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 15347679

Funds

One of the most important decisions that businesses have to make when sourcing for funds is whether to use equity or debt financing. Debt and equity financing happen to be the primary sources of capital for entities. In this text, I discuss these sources of financing in significant detail. In so doing, I will amongst other things highlight the main differences between them as well as the various business characteristics that make one source of financing better than the other.

Debt and Equity Financing: Key Differences

A business seeking capital has to choose from a wide range of funding sources. Such a business can either seek to borrow from banks, issue corporate bonds or get private loans from other investors with a higher risk appetite than banks. All these can be classified broadly as sources of debt financing. Commercial banks however remain the commonest debt financing sources (Kuratko and…… [Read More]

Contract Financing

Contract is a form of payment; or rather it is an unauthorized government distribution of funding to a contractor before accepting supply of goods or services offered by the government. Contract financing excludes debit payments, payments for incomplete acceptance or charter or rental payments. This is because payments of invoices on cost style contracts do not qualify as contract financing. Therefore, contract financing primarily applies to fixed price contracts. The primary intention of contract financing is to help the contractor in handling costs incurred during the performance of the contract (DOD, 2012).

In addition, provision of this financing covers the amount needed for quick and efficient performance of the contract. The order of preference for contract financing suggests that for every government financing provided the contractor should not acquire…… [Read More]

Tax Liability a Preview of Capital Structure

Words: 2119 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 45408700

Tax Liability

A preview of capital structure issues

In regards to the overall business environment, capital structure has profound implications of the business, irrespective of its industry. For one, a firm's capital structure is then the composition or 'structure' of its liabilities. For example, a firm that sells $40 billion in equity and $160 billion in debt is said to be 20% equity-financed and 80% debt-financed. The firm's ratio of debt to total financing, 80% in this example is referred to as the firm's leverage. This leverage has implications on the entire firm. For example, leverage in many respects is a double edges sword. On one hand, leverage can amplify gains for firms. However, if used incorrectly, leverage can also amplify loses. As such, firms must be cognizant of its capital structure as complacency can hinder overall business performance. Debt and equity financing, can have a profound implications on the…… [Read More]
