Im studying for my Health & Medical class and need an explanation.
These are the questions you need to answer using the video:
1* What does Universal Healthcare mean?
2* In the film, which countries offered Universal Healthcare?
3* How do the British pay for their National Health Service? What, according to the film, might Americans not like about the British system?
4* Japanese citizens visit doctors three times as often as Americans, and have longer life spans and lower infant mortality than Americans. How do the Japanese pay for their health care system?
5* Why will doctors in Germany accept less compensation than their counterparts in other countries?
6* In Germany, the rich pay for the poor — how does this play out in their healthcare system?
7* How did Taiwan go about designing their healthcare system? What works well?
8* How is Taiwan struggling to balance the hopes of patients, the needs of doctors and the cost of treatment?
9* Until 1994, Switzerland linked health insurance to employment; if you lost your job, you lost your insurance. But after the Swiss voted in a new system called LAMal, everyone had to buy health insurance, and insurance companies could not make a profit. Why were the Swiss willing to make this change?
