Module 2 – SLP
HEALTH FINANCE AND DELIVERY POLICY
Individuals and organizations often choose to take a stance on certain policy issues that are relevant to their field or organization. To move beyond simply having an opinion, this stance can be drafted in the form of a position statement or paper. Position statements utilize facts, evidence, and research to support them.
After reading and reviewing the required materials for this module, you are expected to draft a position statement informed by what you learned from this background information. Review the document at the link below on how to set up a position paper, including a general outline. Use this to guide your drafting of your paper.
Your paper should specifically address whether the Affordable Care Act is an effective mechanism for reducing the burden of uncompensated care.
