A3. Finance Implications for Healthcare Delivery The financial implications for healthcare delivery in Germany are that the citizens are that there is no way to opt out of coverage. Even if you are a healthy young person, insurance is still going to cost you the same as an unhealthy person who earns the same amount as you. In this system, the healthy help offset the cost of care for the sick. In that same line, the rich pay for the poor in this system. There are safety nets to cover those who earn below a set amount. For the long-term unemployed, who cannot contribute to the fund, the government pays for them. In the United States, the financial implications are that not everyone has insurance coverage. There are people in the U.S. who have had to file bankruptcy over medical bills. There is no regulation on what can be charged and even life-sustaining care could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Updated on 6/15/2018

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
