Discussion: Pay for their health insurance
Individual Presentation: Interview (20%). Conduct an interview with a relative or acquaintance who is at least 65 years old and/or someone who has at least one chronic disease. Ask them the following questions and summarize their answers in your short 10 minute presentation to the class. The goal is to use the presentations to illustrate how the older population deals with their health issues, Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance coverage.
How do they pay for their health insurance?
How much money do they have to spend, during an average month, for out of pocket health related costs, including co-pays, prescription drugs, over the counter medications/supplies.
Are they able to afford all the prescription medications they need? If not, how do they manage?
Was there a time in their lives when they had different health insurance coverage? If so, was the coverage better or worse than their current coverage? Have them give a description of the coverage.
What problems do they experience in the current healthcare system? How would they recommend that the healthcare system be changed?
Describe a medical emergency or serious illness that has occurred in their lives, the condition or health issue, the length of time of the recovery, the estimated cost for the medical treatment, any challenges that resulted, and how the cost was paid for by the individual.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
