Week 9-1 the affordable care act: variability by state
The costs of implementing provisions called for under the PPACA, and the benefits from the legislation, vary from one state to another. The degree to which your health care organization must adhere to guidelines of the ACA may affect the extent of the type of health care services offered, the types of patients served by your facility, and how health care costs are maintained. As a current or future health care executive, you must consider how to balance operations of your health care organization within the context of the ACA and in providing high-quality, low-cost health care.
For this Discussion, review the resources for this week. Search for the cost of implementing the ACA for a health care organization in your state. Reflect on the benefits of implementing the ACA for a health care organization in your state. How might your health care organization, or one with which you are familiar, be affected by ACA mandates?
Post a description of the costs of implementing ACA provisions in your state. Then, explain the benefits of the ACA in your state. Explain how the costs and benefits of the ACA may impact you as a current or future health care executive and your health care organization or one with which you are familiar. Be specific and provide examples.
