ØUsing a chart list at least four types of health care providers (hospitals, nursing homes, home health care, MDs, APRNs) and four types of health care users (private payers, public payers, and the uninsured)
ØWithin the chart list how providers get paid by users (insurance plans, self-pay, government agency pay)
ØWhat happens when a payer will not reimburse the provider (should the poor lose homes or go to jail?)
