Discussion: Unintended Consequences of
Health Care Reform
The PPACA of 2010 fostered new provisions for health care and the structure of health
care delivery. The individual mandate to obtain insurance is one provocative provision.
While this provision attempts to increase access to health care, it raises questions on
how the existing system could sustain the potentially large influx of newly insured
individuals.
Another provision calls for new models of health care provider organizations to ensure
delivery efficiency and continuity of care. In this week’s media presentation, Dr.
Kathleen White discusses the accountable care organization, which comprises a group
of providers coordinating care across a variety of institutional settings. Yet becoming an
accountable care organization may present a number of challenges.
This week’s Discussion builds on Week 1, continuing the examination of those societal
and organizational contexts that influence health care reform. The unintended
consequences of reform policy on the health care system are also considered.
To prepare:
? Review this week’s media presentation and the other Learning Resources focusing on
how reform may lead to improved quality, greater access, and reduced cost of care.
Also think about the unintended consequences that may arise as a result.
? Consider the information presented about the individual mandate and accountable care
organizations. What are some questions or concerns you might have regarding the
individual mandate? What are the pros and cons associated with becoming an
accountable care organization?
? With posting instructions in mind, select either the individual mandate or accountable
care organizations as the focus of your Discussion this week.
By Day 3
Post a cohesive response that addresses the following:
? In the first line of your posting, identify the topic you have selected—either the individual
mandate or accountable care organizations. With regard to this topic, describe one or
more positive results that could be achieved, and one or more unintended
consequence(s) that organizations or individuals may experience.
? Briefly evaluate issues on the topic that may be a consideration for the organization you
work in and the nursing profession.
Read a selection of your colleagues’ postings.
By Day 6
Respond to at least two of your colleagues in one or more of the following ways:
? Ask a probing question, substantiated with additional background information, evidence
or research.
? Share an insight from having read your colleagues’ postings, synthesizing the
information to provide new perspectives.
? Offer and support an alternative perspective using readings from the classroom or from
your own research in the Walden Library.
? Validate an idea with your own experience and additional research.
? Make a suggestion based on additional evidence drawn from readings or after
synthesizing multiple postings.
? Expand on your colleagues’ postings by providing additional insights or contrasting
perspectives based on readings and evidence.
Note: Please see the Syllabus and Discussion Rubric for formal Discussion question
posting and response evaluation criteria.
Return to this Discussion in a few days to read the responses to your initial posting.
Note what you learned and/or any insights you gained as a result of the comments
made by your colleagues.
Be sure to support your work with specific citations from this week’s Learning
Resources and any additional sources.

of health care providers who coordinate care for their Medicare patients and share the
financial incentives of health care improvement gains.
