Compare the healthcare system you have selected in that country to the current US Healthcare system under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Medicare, Medicaid, and Veterans Administration systems. The video The Trouble with US Healthcare gives you great insight into the U.S. Healthcare system.
Include a description of how the model works in the other country and compare that to the health care system in the United States. Would that model work in the U.S.?
Use examples from the videos, and course content to support your discussion.

Use examples from the videos to support your position.
How did you feel hearing the stories about the American’s impacted negatively by the American healthcare system?
Consider the following questions (suggestions):
Should everyone in America have healthcare?
Is it the responsibility of the government to its citizens to provide healthcare?
Support your belief with course content and use ethical principles and theories.

Your paper must contain and address the following:
Paper Requirements: (you may use the template provided)
Your paper must be typed, double-spaced, using 12 point Times New Roman font
Use 1-inch margins on all sides
Your paper must be at least 3 pages, but no more than 4 pages. This means the paper should be at least 3 full pages (not 2 ½), and no more than 4 (not 4 ½)
The title page and the reference page are required (these do not count in the required 3 pages).
APA Style: All citations (e.g. if you refer to your text or another source) must be in the correct APA 7 style within the text of your paper and be included in your list of references
I have provided you with a reference page list for the videos used and some of the reference material. It is located in the assignment #4 folder. If you use other references you must add them to the reference page. If you do not use a reference that I have listed, you must remove it from the reference page. Any reference listed on your reference page must be used at least once in the text of your paper.
You should strive to demonstrate depth and complexity of thought. This means that it is evident from your writing that you clearly thought about the topic as demonstrated in the examples you provided.
It should be clear that examples are written in your own words, and were not merely copied from an external source such as your textbook or the videos. Paraphrasing and direct quotes are allowed, when cited properly, but the majority of your paper must be your own thoughts.
Introduce the reader to what you will discuss in your paper
Include a statement about the ethics of providing access to healthcare to all Americans, the uninsured and the under-insured.
In the introduction, the writer attracts the attention of the reader and prepares him for the information that will be discussed. It should include a brief overview of the topic. In the introduction, the writer tells the audience what he is going to tell them about and declares a strong thesis statement or the point of the paper at the end of the introduction. It should not be too long or be filled with factual information. The factual information will come later in the paper and must reflect back to the introduction.
Body of the Paper (suggestions)
Each paragraph of the body of the paper should begin with a topic sentence that states the point that is being made in the paragraph. Complete each paragraph with a sentence that reiterates the topic sentence at the beginning of the paragraph.
The essay should be clearly organized and structured.
Your paper should have several paragraphs, and not be large chunks of writing without the use of paragraphs.
You should use transition sentences between paragraphs to help the reader move from one paragraph to the next. This means, even though each paragraph may have its own idea or thought within it, it also flows with the entire paper. Each paragraph should be connected in some way.
Your paper should make sense, meaning the reader can follow your train of thought in a logical way. Be cautious of long, run-on sentences. If a sentence seems too long, try to break it up into more than one sentence.
Discuss the ethics of providing access to healthcare for the uninsured and the under-insured. Should all Americans be provided with free healthcare? You must make a statement about this, drawing upon ethical principles and values.
You must also make a statement about the opposite argument, drawing upon ethical principles and values.
Some ethical principles and values you might consider and use are (note: there is no wrong answer here and you do not have to use all of them)
Sanctity of Life
This is the last paragraph of your paper. Your paper must have a conclusion where you review what you have discussed in the paper and give a conclusion to your written document.
In general, the introduction of your paper tells the reader what you are going to tell them about.
At the beginning of your conclusion paragraph, restate the thesis statement from your introduction. Then briefly summarize the points you made in the body of the paper.
The conclusion should tell the reader what you have told them in a summary format. You are making a logical conclusion statement about what you have told the reader.
No new information is presented in the conclusion paragraph.
References are critically important as evidence to support your assertions. At least two references must be used and documented in APA 7 format. Since the assignment requires you to view two videos, documentation of the two videos must be on the reference page. (I have formatted them for you).
You may use examples and evidence from outside resources and/or course content (such as your text and other videos). However, your definitions or examples should not merely be copied word for word. You should paraphrase or summarize any outside source.
The use of outside evidence should also be correct. This means if I examine the outside resource that it will say what you said it does.
You must also not plagiarize. If you use an outside resource (including the text), you must appropriately cite this source and give credit where credit is due. Plagiarism means you have written something and claimed the information is your own when in actuality you have obtained the information from another source or subject matter expert. It is okay to use the information as long as you cite the source. Even if you paraphrase from a source you must cite the source.
A list of the references used to write the paper must be included on a separate page at the end of an APA document. (I have provided the format and some references for you in the template).
Every reference cited in the text of the paper must be listed on the reference page
Every reference listed on the reference page must be used as a citation in the text of the paper.
A reference page, to include a list of your resources used and/or cited in your paper must be included on a separate page at the end of your paper.
This page does not count towards the page requirement for the assignment.
A title page, which does not count towards the page requirement listed above, must include the following information, each line centered and double spaced:
the title of your paper
the name of the college
