Module 3 – Case

MANAGED CARE, ACCOUNTABLE CARE ORGANIZATIONS, HEALTH CARE CONSUMER PLANS/MODELS

 

Assignment Overview

There are various types of plans consumers can select. MCOs, HMOs, PPOs, POSs, or ACOs are the most common ones; however they all supply various benefits and drawbacks. Consumers (patients) have the right to choose the type of plan that best fits their needs. As a health care leader, it is vital that you understand the differences in these plans. In addition, in a health care environment where there are plenty of options for consumers (e.g., providers, medical offices, location, consumer plans etc.), ideally making the “choice” is left up to the consumer’s determination.

 

Case Assignment

For the Module 3 Case Assignment, conduct additional research as needed and complete the following:

 

Part 1 – Comparative Chart:

Prepare a detailed comparative chart (see example at the following source: https://philsblogspace.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/eco-chart.jpg?w=1400). In your comparative chart, evaluate and discuss the key features, differences, and disadvantages between MCOs, HMOs, PPOs, POSs, and ACOs.

Part 2 – Designed an Application (App):

In the world of technology, the “consumer choice” is often swayed by their research efforts or applications. In at least 2 pages, design an app to assist consumers with making a choice between the various consumer plans. Be creative and detailed about your application. Explain the contents of the application that you create and why you feel it would be beneficial to consumers.

In your scholarly paper, you should include an introduction and conclusion paragraph.
