Organizational Systems and Quality Leadership Task 3, SAT1-0517/1217 Christy Huff Western Governors University
ORGANIZATIONAL SYSTEMS TASK 3 2 Healthcare Financing A1. Country to Compare I am comparing healthcare services in the United States to healthcare provided in Japan. A1. Access For children in the United States, gaining access to healthcare coverage is obtained via private insurance or through the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). CHIP is a minimal-cost or no-cost health plan for infants, children and teens. Health coverage and benefits through the CHIP program varies from state to state, and Medicaid helps pay for it (Children’s Health Insurance Program, 2020). For the unemployed American adult, few options exist for health coverage. Unemployed American adults can buy private insurance or apply government assisted Medicaid. For retired people in the U.S., traditional Medicare or Medicare Advantage (both are government programs) or private insurance is available. In Japan insurance for children may be provided under their parent’s plan known as the Statutory Health Insurance System (SHIS) or community based (International Commonwealth Fund, 2017). Unemployed Japanese workers do not lose insurance if they lose their job; they can switch to a community insurer or a plan known as Citizens Health Insurance (International Commonwealth Fund, 2017).
