Chapter 3: Healthcare Reform and in the United States

Using what you learned in Modules 1-3 up to this point, discuss 3 key elements you think should be a part of US Healthcare reform.  Since we do not know at this point whether the ACA will remain or will be repealed and replaced, what are 3 key elements that should remain or be introduced into US healthcare reform legislation? 

For example, children up to the age of 26 being able to remain on their parent’s health insurance or mandates that everyone have healthcare.  These are only examples, feel free to discuss any key elements from the readings or your own research.  This assignment should be a maximum of 2 paragraphs in length and should be your own original thought.  Please cite any sources you used in a standard format (e.g. APA or MLA).  Purdue’s Online Writing Lab (OWL) can help with cited and writing.  You can find OWL at . The rest of your submission should be 2 paragraphs (no more then 5 sentences in a paragraph!) on the 3 key elements you chose that should remain or be introduced as discussed above.   Remember do not simply state your opinion; explain your rationale for your opinion. Be sure to write properly for an academic audience (review syllabus guidelines).
