Financial Management in Nursing Practice

Financial Management in Nursing Practice

After reading Chapter 2 of the textbook and the Sommers article, write a 750- to 1100-word paper (3 to 4 pages) to respond to questions below.

According to Penner:

The federal government currently funds about 57% of the costs of Medicaid. The ACA has encouraged the expansion of Medicaid eligibility, with the federal government paying 90% to 100% of these new costs over future years (Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured [KCMU], 2013). (p. 53)

Consider the financial implications of the changes in healthcare utilization with the expansion of Medicaid outlined in the article. What are the positive and negative financial impacts/risks to: (1) the state, (2) the healthcare providers, (3) the individual patients? Do the positive financial impacts/risks outweigh the negative financial impacts/risks? Why or why not?

Support your paper with at least two additional outside references.
