This pre-clinic session will provide an overview of the American health care system and the fundamentals of how public and private insurance works. Through this session, students will establish a baseline working understanding of the core tenants of health care in America and critical programs and concepts. Topics include the basics of the private insurance market, Medicare, and Medicaid; traditional and emerging payment models; a brief overview of the politics of health care policy; and the federal and state infrastructure for administering health care programs. This session will provide the framework that will allow a deeper dive into specific topics in the two clinic seminars. Students who have experience in health care policy may opt out of this session.
This event is only open to HLS students; please RSVP to Laura Johnston.
