Health Care Management -3
Write a 5 page paper in APA format (not including the cover page and reference page). There are several tools to aid you in the Student Resources. Please access the Essay Outline and the document titled: “How to do a problem based case study.” There is also an APA template for you to use for your assignments. There is another document titled: “Analysis, or Synthesis, or Critical Evaluation Course Workbook.” You will not need to turn that document in but it will help you in completing your weekly assignments as well as the Final Research Paper. Note that you need to conduct additional research to complete this assignment.
You are a Benefits specialist for a small rural healthcare organization. You are doing a routine audit of the benefit policies and want to make sure that the organization is being compliant with government regulations. For your first task, identify and discuss 4 mandated benefits that must be offered. Discuss the purpose of each one and the impact on employees if it wasn’t mandated. Next, identify 3 voluntary benefits that the organization should offer. Explain the rationale for ensuring these are part of the benefits package.
This paper should be prepared as a Microsoft™ Word document, 5 pages in length. The document should be prepared consistent with the APA writing style (6th edition) and reflect higher level cognitive processing (analysis, synthesis and or evaluation).
You must have at least 2 scholarly references in addition to the textbook. You may also use one other reference (such as a government website or a professional publication or website). (Tip for searching the LIRN: Select the Subject Tab and select Health and Medical. Then use one of the sources such as “Health management Database” or Health & Medical” to conduct your search. Limit the search dates to articles after 2012 and preface your search parameters with “health care” before you put your weekly subjects in the search line. Check the boxes for peer reviewed articles and full text.) Consider whether any of your weekly research can be used in your final paper.
