Identify the key public and private sources of reimbursement available. Also discuss the role played by managed care and its impact on long-term care reimbursement.
Â· Describe the various government and private resources available that assist in developing and maintaining quality improvement programs in home health care and nursing facilities. Describe the ways in which quality and cost are controlled in these facilities. Also discuss the ethical aspect of access to care in the facilities, including rationing.
Based on your observations and learning from the two facilities, discuss the changes brought in the long-term care system to make it reach full status as a competition-driven system. You may include the following points in your discussion:
– Discuss the changes made in the control mechanisms (external and internal) to control the management, financing, and quality in the long-term care systems.
– Discuss the changes taking place in long-term care reimbursement system to provide better reimbursement options both to consumers and providers.
