Running Head: ORGANIZATIONAL SYSTEMS TASK 3 Healthcare FinancingA1. Country to CompareJapan and the United StatesA2. AccessIn Japan, all citizens, including children, unemployed and the retired are required to enroll in the Statutory Health Insurance System. Plans are picked based on age, employment status and place of residence. Undocumented immigrants and visitors are not allowed coverage. Government employees and some professionals, such as Doctors, need to find coverage by their own insurers.Private insurance plans are used to supplement some forms of sickness and hospital stays, or life insurance. All enrollees have to pay a 30 percent coinsurance for services and goods received, except for children up to around age 6, adults ages 70 to 74 with lower incomes, and those age 75 and older with lower incomes. There are no deductibles and copayments for children's health care are often subsidized by local governments (Matsuda, 2019). In the United States, most citizens are required to have health coverage. Access is available for children, unemployed and retired people through the Medicaid/ Medicare system of coverage.
