This course focuses on macro analysis of the current financial state of healthcare in the United States. The interrelationships of value, quality, and price are analyzed.

Compensation and payer models are compared including the role of employer benefits, private health insurance plans, Medicare and Medicaid, and various mechanisms used to cover the costs of prescription drugs.
