The overall goal of the Session Long Project in this course is to examine health care delivery in the United States from a personal perspective, and provide recommendations for improvement.
As U.S. citizens, we have all interacted (and will continue to interact) with the delivery of health care. In fact, insurance plans/organizations are an important part of our healthcare delivery system. Most healthcare insurance plans are either an Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO), Health Maintenance Organization (HMO), or Preferred Provider Organization (PPO). It is important to note that health insurance is highly government regulated, and, as a result, is influenced by political culture.
