What role does the cost of the doctor’s education and malpractice insurance play in costing health care services?
What is the role of third-party payers such as Medicare and Medicaid in pricing health care services?
How does the uninsured population impact pricing?
How does the use of emergency services for nonemergency situations impact pricing?
Document recommendations for improvement based on your economic analysis.
Ensure that you integrate economic terms, frameworks, and models throughout the review.

As a guideline, do not have more than 16 words on each slide. Your speaker notes should explain the slide in detail. Be sure to follow APA style page formatting, and provide at least 4 peer-reviewed references from health care journals published in the past 5 years.
