Rely on your textbook and online resources when developing a 4-5 page paper that outlines the structure and characteristics of the U.S. health system with the following questions in mind:
What are the key components of the U.S. health system?
How are these components organized? What are the defining characteristics?
Then, research and list two or more defining characteristics of the U.S. system that you believe are particularly important when considering the delivery of health care in this country. Explain why. Explain how it strengthens this vast system and explain the limitations?
Articulate how these defining characteristics reflect or impact financial/economic, political policy issues, particular to the United States.
