Role of Government in Providing Health Insurance for Other Sections

The government provides health insurance to low-income individuals,  the elderly, and the disabled. These individuals cannot afford private  health insurance and would be uninsured if government insurance did not  exist. Medicaid and Medicare are entitlement programs, while SCHIP is a  block grant program.

On the basis of your knowledge on Medicaid, Medicare and SCHIP, write  a 3- to 4-page essay in a Microsoft Word document on these government  insurance programs. Your essay should include answers to the following  questions:

  • Compare and contrast the three major government health insurances.  Include eligibility, administrative jurisdiction, and method of  financing.
  • Compare the Medicaid program in the state you reside in with a  Medicaid program in another state. Should Medicaid programs be uniform  throughout the United States? Explain why or why not.
  • Compare the structure and eligibility rules for SCHIP in your state  and SCHIP in another state. Do you think that SCHIP should be uniform  throughout the United States? Why or why not?
  • Describe entitlement and block grant programs. How are these two programs different?
  • Should all government health insurances be entitlement programs or should they all be block grant programs? Why?
